  1. It’s sad to think that with all its high-tech fanciness of the new console generation, TMNT can’t even muster up the personality and gameplay of the old arcade games.
  2. The new game is a little bland, and just doesn’t really excite the same way that the old ones do. It’s the worst game under the Ninja Turtle franchise, and is worth a rental at most.

    Feels cheeky to be criticising a scrolling beat 'em up for being too shallow, but TMNT is possibly one of the most tedious ever. Repetition is only acceptable when you're repeating something gratifying. [Jan 2004, p.109]
  4. A hugely disappointing update to a franchise that was once reverred in the videogames industry - why is there no 4P option?

    While this game is quite the looker, its gameplay is far, far too repetitive and strangely difficult. It's more of a license cash-in than a modern-day version of the classic games.
  6. 40
    Even by side-scrolling basher standards, the gameplay here is weak and uninspired. The lack of complexity in the fighting system, combined with the lack of variation in the action itself leads to a game that, despite being gorgeous, is still a total snooze.
  7. TMNT certainly looks good but the simplistic gameplay of TMNT will leave any mildly serious gamer with a few hours of fun at their fingertips but possibly no more than that.

    Good old coin-op style gaming with good graphics and sound. The way the game scrolls is the best I have seen for a game of this type, giving Good old coin-op style gaming with good graphics and sound. The way the game scrolls is the best I have seen for a game of this type, giving you the classic and ease of 2D platform in a 3D world. If you want some mindless thumb aching action, this game is for you. Full Review »
