  • Summary: The action is packed into another exciting series of adventures with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus. Run with the Turtle dudes as they show off their new Ninja abilities against all new opponents. Only the best can turn chaos into control with simultaneous play for up to four players in both cooperative and head-to-head modes. Combination moves allow for over 30 different types of attacks. Distinct characteristics and abilities for each Turtle abound in the game. Voiceovers from the TMNT animated series are also employed. [Konami] Collapse

  1. Battle Nexus isn't quite as fun as past games or even as fun as the show itself, but it is pretty solid game overall, and is worth picking up for old times sake, or for the new fan.
  2. 60
    Improves on its predecessor by including a list of groovy extras and providing each turtle with unique abilities. Battle Nexus also lets you play four-player co-op. Sadly, the shoddy controls, frustrating platform puzzles and sub par enemy AI keep Battle Nexus from succeeding.
  3. The fairly sloppy control made the parts where I was actually interacting with the game less than ideal.
  4. Most of Battle Nexus is the same thing as the last game, except this time, it’s been beaten, bruised, and bludgeoned with a rabid sturgeon repeatedly, then given a thorough colonoscopy with said sturgeon.
  5. Game play, while trying to recapture the essence of the old school arcade game, is excruciating, dull, and repetitive.
  6. 40
    It quickly degenerates into as absurd a mess as four turtles that are supposed to be ninjas with a rat for a sensei sounds like on paper. As Michelangelo might say, "cowabunga dudes, this is one gnarly game wreck."
  7. The original arcade TMNT may reward your perseverance - but it's not worth the pain. And that says a lot. [Nov 2004, p.132]
