Excerpt: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Smash Up Genre: Fighting Developer: Game Arts Publisher: Ubisoft Release Date: 09/22/09 So, I mentioned this previously when discussing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled , but there’s a clean demarcation line in quality that falls somewhere around...
Conclusion: Concept: America’s favorite reptilian ninjas settle their grievances Smash Bros. style

Pros: Solid mechanics, Deep online mode, It's the freakin' Turtles!, Multiple control options
Cons: Limited character roster, 3 Rabbids = turd, Few fighting arenas, Forgettable ‘rock' soundtrack, Lacklustre presentation
