  1. It's Smash Bros. with a shorter lifespan and less interesting characters, but still fun nonetheless. [Nov 2009, p.72]
  2. While its flaws prevent it from being a serious contender, the game is a surprisingly fun and a solid effort that fans shouldn't miss. It may try a bit too hard to be like Super Smash Bros., but its modes and gameplay make it a title worth checking out if you want to take a break from Nintendo's fighting game.
  3. Smash-Up is a good game for fans. Good Combat and solid content, but not the next Smash Bros.
  4. 78
    Although maybe it is not as good as the game it is inspired by, Game Arts has made a splendid job with its own personality.
  5. If the Smash Bros. formula has worn thin for you, the Smash-Up experience will feel as sturdy as a wet paper towel. On the other hand, Smash Bros. and TMNT fans should embrace this game’s dodge-happy action.
  6. At the very least, this is worth a rental just to see how well the TMNT franchise translates to the Smash Bros. gameplay style, but it’ll probably take more than a rental if you want to unlock everything.
  7. Those who approach Smash-Up hoping for a solid, enjoyable alternative to Smash Bros. will be pleased, but Turtles fans hoping for a celebration of the franchise will probably be disappointed by the game’s shameful “scratch the surface” approach to Eastman and Laird’s storied 25-year-old franchise.
  8. Nintendo Power
    It's a must for fans of the turtles and a good bet for anyone who enjoys a fun multiplayer game. [Nov 2009, p.82]
  9. 75
    Truth be told, there is perhaps a little bit of irony behind TMNT: Smash-Up. Odds are, the less of a TMNT fan one is, the less one knows about the franchise, the more one might enjoy it.

    I'd say the thing this game suffers from is the amount of content. There are 2 games that I think of that are fairly similar to this game:I'd say the thing this game suffers from is the amount of content. There are 2 games that I think of that are fairly similar to this game: Super Smash Bros. (Mainly Brawl), and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. From the get go in those other games, you have around 20 characters. When you start this game, you get seven. Then you do the story. Better than PSASBR, but a whole ton less than SSB. This along with other things make me feel this way. About the same fun level, and luckily a few characters to unlock along the way. Overall, 6.0/10 Full Review »
