TMNT Mutant Melee Gameplay Movie 1
Score distribution:

  1. It's not going to be winning any awards, but it's an entertaining gameplay experience packaged alongside a virtual vault of nostalgia, and worth at least a glance for fans of the genre or the characters.
  2. Repetitious button-mashing gameplay that rarely engages the brain is the undertone of this title.
  3. It's just passable, really, but I don't think Master Splinter would approve wholeheartedly, even with a decent price point of $20.
  4. This is an incredibly slapdash and barren game that has absolutely nothing to offer you beyond monotonous, almost-broken fighting mechanics, tiny environments, and a bunch of lame unlockables.
  5. The gameplay just seemed so bland and boring that I really don't think I ever enjoyed this game.

    It's hard to find the fun in Mutant Melee, whether playing alone or with friends. [May 2005, p.54]

    This is some of the weakest, button-mashy gameplay you'll ever experience.
