This is not only the best Turtles beat 'em up, it is the greatest beat 'em up of all time. This is a party starter; a feel-good moment in gaming. This game is the default blueprint for future beat 'em ups. Do not wait. Get this game. Play this game. Love this game. Oh...and Cowabunga.
TMNT Shredder’s Revenge is a high quality game that shows that a little patience and good will between developers with a pinch of love can work big time! This game is for all ages and for all skill levels and with attention towards the details that can rarely be seen in games today.
Best beat and up today, the best ninja turtles game of the last decades too. Gameplay, graphics, art direction and replay factor = 10. So far nine playable characters, story mode and arcade mode with Coop for up to six players. Ultimate turtles. I hope the game has more DLCs.
Levels in Shredder’s Revenge may be simple and straightforward, but its combat system is fast-paced, easy to pull off, and lets you feel like a badass with each bo, nunchuck, sai, or sword you swing. Even if you have never playing a Turtles game in life or are too young to even remember that catchy opening theme song, chances are you will enjoy this love letter to a classic series that can still clearly kick butt.
This is a must’ve buy for TMNT fans , and those that like the classic series .. this game pays respect to the TMNT titles of old and does a fantastic job at honoring and staying true to the series .. a great game especially for the price . With a large amount of characters and good amount of levels and variety of different difficulty options, and modes to choose from
Nostalgia and the animations are good but the gameplay feels lacking and doesn't feels sluggish. Sometimes your character attacks the wrong direction and for needing precision on things you get warped around the screen based on how you're attacking. It was a pain trying to line my character up with flying stuff. Trying to beat shredder without getting hit has made me hate this game. It doesn't feel, skill based, but it feels highly luck based. The overworld map numbering and layout annoys me, and the game feels lacking substance after one playthrough. The super shredder fight itself is like 3/10.
I saw the excitement and reviews about this game and was so into the idea. Trailers and gameplay looked great, but I kinda feel lied to. Talk about nostalgia entirely carrying the weight. That isn't to say this game is bad, it's okay, but seriously this is the kind of game that would have been released on the Xbox 360 Live Arcade for $15. Wait... oh, that actually kinda did happen.
People were hyping this way too much. They kept saying "oh there's so many challenges and collectibles and leveling up your character" but none of those add up to anything. You get points going through the game which unlocks more health or moves but it doesn't add anything to the game really. Leveling up doesn't do much. The challenges are just things like don't get hit or don't fall in a pit. There are no secrets really and Casey Jones was already shown as an unlockable character so... online play is the only thing left after you beat this.
You'll finish this game in a couple hours. The replayability is minimal. How do I write a review here, there's so little? You'll get into it, see the throwback stuff, see some jokes and cheesy lines, you'll be hooked to keep playing because level 1 feels so classic. You see the stuff from the cartoon, pokes at old jokes and classic 90s kids things. Then you'll start getting annoyed by the gameplay a few levels in. You aren't pumping in quarters but some of the enemies and bosses are crafted to cough up quarters. The music in some levels just doesn't match the game. Some of the music is great but like TMNT 2 it feels like a desperate cash-in that ignores what made it so good in the first place. It just feels off. The game is made for multiplayer but I didn't find any type of play to be all that fun.
First time through I got all but 2 of the collectibles and most of the challenges. I started with Donny, balanced and simple but a weird style to play with less reach than expected. After finish I played through a level with each character and had no interest in playing again. Raphael is by far the worst to play with. Casey Jones plays like a wrestler and is too much of a "one joke" character. Leo, Mikey, Splinter, and April are the typical beat-em-up characters.
The voice overs are... well. I'm not sure if it's just that these guys are all older or if they were recording these with cell phones on an airplane. They sound wrong and distorted. None of them quite sound like their core character. I felt it was a little lazy they didn't voice the cut scenes most of the time except for one line quips. Just text on a screen. The story is basically a childish mix of classic 90s cartoon tropes. The endings slightly change depending on who you play as, again just another nostalgia nod to the cartoon.
The taunts are annoying. If you play online half the time everyone is just doing this. You hear them a lot. One taunt over and over. The specials aren't very unique to the character. The jokes and nostalgia are fun the first time around but the second time through these just seem like old pizza found under the couch. Once those wear off the game seems very empty.
Now, I'm sad and I wish I bought a pizza instead.
As a fanboy of the older beat em ups of the Turtles I really hate to write this. In a way i am disappointed in this game. It feels more like a party game then a proper beat em up.
Almost in every screen the perspective of the backdrops are just so wrong or objects are way too big, like the cars for example. Completing all challenges is just too easy. The whole party just spamming taunt to be able to spam your Super Attack is funny at first but it actually ruins the game for its difficulty and other mechanics.
