  1. It's Smash Bros. with a shorter lifespan and less interesting characters, but still fun nonetheless. [Nov 2009, p.72]
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. TMNT: Smash Up does so much right in the ring that it’s a shame that it is sucker punched by a shallow character roster, lack of battle arenas and poor presentation.
  5. Gamers looking for a quick brawler to play with a group of friends are probably better off sticking with Super Smash Bros. Brawl because when it comes down to it, there's just more there. Bummer dude! Total Shellshock!
  6. 67
    Despite the faults in character variety, you get a good Ninja Turtle fighter using a proven engine, but maybe Ubisoft will do one better than the Konami of 1994 and produce a sequel worth wishing for.
  7. Truly, there’s nothing redeeming; you're just going to waste your time playing it. If you have the self-control, please don’t let morbid curiosity get the best of you.

    Solid fighter. The visuals lack polish (at least on my non-HD TV), the cut scenes are a minus. Like Super Smash Bros, sometimes the action Solid fighter. The visuals lack polish (at least on my non-HD TV), the cut scenes are a minus. Like Super Smash Bros, sometimes the action gets too small to see. I'm still hoping for a game of this ilk with arenas atuned more to gameplay than fanciness. Expand

    TMNT Smash Up is pretty much Smash Bros with less characters, worse stages and terrible gameplay. The game has an arcade mode with story, butTMNT 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
