    If you were a video game developer and you happened to have a time machine, and for some reason you decided to use that time machine to travel specifically back to visit me on a Saturday morning around 30 years ago, and then you asked my childhood self what the perfect video game to make would be, I'm pretty sure I would have invented Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge on the spot. This game is the stuff of a young Turtles fan's dreams. [Issue #60 – July/August 2022, p. 68]

    TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge not only recreates the joy of encountering a Ninja Turtles classic arcade game from back in the day but perfectly mixes in modern-day conveniences like advanced combo controls, a multitude of moves, and characters that genuinely feel like they play differently for a more varied experience. Combined with all the deep cuts to the original 1987 cartoon and a powerful soundtrack featuring many songs from surprising sources, you have a powerful love letter to a long-running franchise you’ll want to return to again and again.

    Shredder’s Revenge is a triumphant return for the Ninja Turtles. For all the reinventions and expansions of this classic property, there’s nothing quite like the original. Seeing the spirit of both the cartoon and Konami’s classic games so faithfully reproduced here was wondrous to behold. At the same time, Tribute Games has also managed to one up the games that came before it with a sharper combat system that allows for all sorts of creative ways to take down foes. Boss fights lack some of the nuance to defeat that rank and file grunts provide, but the spectacle of these battles makes up for that. Shredder’s Revenge is available via the eShop, but there are a number of ways to get hold of the game physically, as well. No matter how you play it, the heroes in a half shell are worthy of your time.

    Two years in the making, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is the best Turtles beat 'em up ever made, and a faster, better-looking, and more entertaining affair than even Streets of Rage 4. It looks delicious, sounds superb, and rekindles childhood memories beyond all expectation, time-warping you back to 1987. Its combat system is so much fun to mine that you feel compelled to keep coming back to try new strategies, and with its awesome multiplayer the experience evolves again and again. Like any beat 'em up, it does get repetitive as you enter the last third, but that’s more a fault of the concept than the game. Our only regret is that we didn’t use anywhere near enough puns in this review, so let’s close by saying Shredder’s Revenge is an unprecedented shell-ebration.

    This new TMNT game stands out for being an artistic explosion with detailed pixel art and a good amount of nods for the most nostalgic. Its gameplay feels very smooth both on local and online multiplayer.

    Even as a shorter game and with limited character leveling, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is arguably the best beat-em-up and TMNT experience ages. If you have a buddy or several to tackle the forces of foot clan evil with, jump on this one.

    After that initial sugar rush, Shredder's Revenge inevitably feels a little thin. [Issue#374, p.121]

Between collectables, challenges, leaderboards, achievements, leveling your characters for unlocks and the sheer madness of up to 6 players on screen at once, this is an absolute blast full of replayability- and if you hear differently, well they are just wrong. The only knock I'd give it is that there should be universal crossplay available. Perhaps this will change, but for now the only crossplay that exists at launch is between Xbox and PC. Switch and PS players will only be able to play MP with friends or randoms on the same platform as them. Definitely not a deal breaker. Cowabunga!

    Pros:
    -Beautiful retro pixel art graphics
    -Tubular soundtrack
    -Bodacious nostalgia for 80's/early 90's Turtle fans
    -Massive replayability
    -Addictive classic beat 'em up gameplay
    -Simple Turtle Power goodness, no politics or hidden agenda
    -In-game achievements and challenges
    -Explosive online multiplayer with up to 6 players
    -Performance is nearly perfect, with the occasional small fps dip online
    -Story is tied together by animated stills and voice acting from the original cartoon's cast
    -Game is developed by the team that did Streets of Rage 4

    (Partial) Con:
    -No universal crossplay with other platforms available at launch, but the Switch player base is so strong it takes almost no effort to jump right into an ongoing lobby of players if you don't have Switch friends to team up with.

It perfectly captures the atmosphere of both old-school arcade games and TMNT: Turtles in Time. The soundtrack is catchy as hell and the art style is a perfect mix of the old 80's cartoon and retro beat'em up style games. Unfortunately, this is also a fairly easy game to beat and the side quests don't offer enough content to warrant a second playthrough. But this is still a really fun game and if you can get another seven players together, you won't regret it. Expand

    I’m not usually a fan of Beat ‘em up game, and this game certainly isn’t on my favorite games of all time list, but I do have found memoriesI’m not usually a fan of Beat ‘em up game, and this game certainly isn’t on my favorite games of all time list, but I do have found memories of playing a TMNT beat ‘em arcade cabinet with my brother in a Ronald McDonald’s house while my brother was in the hospital in the early 2000s. And that’s definitely enough to trigger the nostalgia. I’m not a huge TMNT fan so a lot of the minor characters and villains I don’t know and the game barely does anything to teach me about them. But they are very fun to just beat up on. The online works great, and is very forgiving if you disconnect. You can join matches mid match, if you disconnect from a room it seamlessly puts you into your own room without kicking you out of the level. I believe the switch is the only version with six player couch co-op and it’s amazing. Very good game. Expand
