  1. One of the best XBLA hack-and-slash classics ever to grace Xbox Live Arcade.
  2. This is one of the best action platform games in a while and for only 800 MS Points this is seriously one of the better gaming deals to be had over the long hot summer. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled is a great game and a must buy for Xbox 360 owners.
  3. Once again though, the graphics shouldn’t hold back hardcore fans of the turtles from purchasing Turtles in Time Re-Shelled.
  4. A good revamp of an old classic.
  5. Turtles In Time Re-Shelled has managed to maintain much of its original title while still evolving to a more modern and accessible state, Not an easy task by any means, and while there are a few great points that were dropped from this port, it has kept just enough to give it a great nostalgic feel.

    Digital distribution brings us a remarkable clean-up of a true arcade classic, starred by the mighty Ninja Turtles.
  7. If you’re looking for a quick beat-‘em-up to play with your friends, or you just want to ride the TMNT nostalgia train, Turtles In Time Re-Shelled is a solid buy for 800 Microsoft points ($10.00 / £6.80). Cowabunga, dude!

    The most obvious problem is the fact that this is not the same game from the old days. Yes, its a 3D remake of one of the best side-scrolling beat-em-ups ever made but it doesn't hold a candle to the classic Turtles in Time from the SNES days. The 3D leaves alot to be desired and the game just doesn't feel right. I really wish they had just re-released the original game and been done with it as the remake is not a good way to show the kids of today what a wonderful game the original was.
    This game does still have a bit of the charm from the original and they were at least able to give each individual turtle a different ability to let them stand out. I'm glad this game was made as it gives us at least some kind of ability to play this on the 360. But the original is what we wanted and we were not given that. A disappointment to be sure but not without some merit.
