  • Summary: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles return in their first party game experience. Gather your friends to join you in a variety of minigames and adventures that feature more than 20 playable characters, including all four turtles, Casey Jones, April O'Neil, Master Splinter, and even the evil Shredder. TMNT Mutant Melee features two modes--adventure story and melee match--which are playable either solo or with up to three other players. In each mode, you can collect tokens to unlock additional content. Expand

  1. In fact, if you have an Xbox and the money for this, I highly recommend using it to purchase "Kung Fu Chaos" instead, which adopts Melee's fighting system, but adds purpose and several gallons of hilarity to the mix... and is cheaper to boot.
  2. If you have to see what it's about for yourself, rent it before purchasing, and above all elseā€¦ find a friend.

    It lacks the humor and charm of the original show, and even the new one for that matter. It gives you plenty of characters, but no real reason to prefer one to the other.
  4. This brings shame to the name Turtles. Even to the Turtles die hard fans this will just be a stab in your heart.
  5. The latest game is entitled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Melee and like the last two games, threatens to send the Turtles back into hibernation or wherever the hell they went last time.
  6. Not even cel-shaded reptiles can save a game cursed with tissue-thin design, weak AI, and repetitive gameplay. [June 2005, p.78]
  7. 20
    This is some of the weakest, button-mashy gameplay you'll ever experience.
