    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 Expand

    There is really no reason to ever play this game if Smash Bros is an option. Licensing materials aside, TMNT is inferior in every way. If, somehow, every copy of Smash Bros mysteriously disappeared this would be a good game, but settles for decent instead. For those who are tired of Smash Bros (how?) or just love TMNT beyond reason then this game might be worth a rental.

    TMNT Smash Up is pretty much Smash Bros with less characters, worse stages and terrible gameplay. The game has an arcade mode with story, but it's terrible. The game's gameplay does have some value, you can do wall jumps and more ninja like things then Smash Bros, but it's to bad you can never pull them off because the bad controls. TMNT does technically have online but you will hate it so much that you will play it once and then stop forever. The game at least has graphics and music that suite the games entire aesthetic. I could see hardcore TMNT fans enjoying this game. Collapse

  1. For all its positives, in the end, Smash Up is simply less and fewer in every way than Brawl. There are fewer levels (by half), fewer characters (by half), fewer collectible trophies (by an order of magnitude)… and the overall number of unlockables isn’t even in the same ballpark. It’s still a good game, and there’s no denying the appeal once you begin to perfect your technique, but comparison is inevitable under the circumstances.
  2. It simply isn't as fun as Super Smash Bros., and it's too similar to pull in anyone who isn't already a fan of Nintendo's fighting game. All in all, it should be reserved for only those who still sleep in Michelangelo pajamas and play with their the Ninja Turtle Pizza Shooter.

    Smash-Up is a good game for those that really want a decent TMNT fighter, but it doesn’t do a whole lot to make it its own experience.
