Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash Up

Game Over Online
13 October 2009
  • Excerpt: The TNMT license has had more than its fair share of sub-par games since the early ‘90s, but it’s also seen some excellent games as well - like the arcade games that turned into great console games. Most TMNT games have been side-scrolling beat-em-ups, but some have taken the form of more traditional fighting games - like Tournament Fighters, TMNT: Melee, like a TNMT take on Power Stone, and this - a Smash Bros.-esque entry from the makers of Smash Bros. Brawl.

A Derivative Shell Of A Good Time For Fans

Game Informer
30 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: America’s favorite reptilian ninjas settle their grievances Smash Bros. style Graphics: The original comic was drawn in black and white with a pencil, and it was still more fun to look at than these comic-esque cutscenes. Thankfully the in-game graphics look great. Sound: It’s fun to hear most of the original ‘90s cartoon cast reprise their roles, but the music is rather unremarkable Playability: The loose controls take some getting used to, but when used...

GameSpot
23 September 2009
  • Summary: This brawler has good combat and solid content, but it lacks the refinement and razzle-dazzle to earn a title shot.
  • Pros: Fun, fast-paced combat, Accessible fighting controls, Some entertaining environments, Lots of different modes, Smooth online play
  • Cons: Visuals aren't sharp enough for the quick action, Multiplayer battles have scoring issues, Not as much variety as Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up

22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Check out the Video Review. After 25 years of success, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise has seen better days. The television series has fallen out of relevancy, the 2007 CG movie didn’t do much in terms of critical acclaim, and the past few video games have been anything but impressive. However, none of those missteps have gotten in the way of gamers’ love for Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, and Donatello.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash Up

Digital Chumps
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash Up tries so hard to compare itself to Game Arts’ benchmark-setting Super Smash Bros. Brawl that you’d think it actually weighs up. But the bar has been set so ridiculously high by the Smash Bros. series that competition within the party/four-player fighting genre is practically impossible.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
21 September 2009
  • Excerpt: My childhood was filled with movies, television shows, and toys starring everyone’s favorite mutated reptiles: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Because of this, it is pretty cool to see that somewhat of a TMNT resurgence is beginning to take place. After the re-releases of Turtles in Time and a new game for the DS on the way, we old school fans couldn’t be happier.

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine
11 October 2009
  • Excerpt: When it comes to game advertising, you've got to see through the lies and decipher the actual truth. So when Ubisoft announced that TMNT: Smash-Up was "developed by the team behind Super Smash Bros Brawl" (Game Arts, who only really developed a tiny part of Smash Bros.) and released trailers telling us to "have a brawl" it was clear what they wanted us to think: this was Smash Bros. with Turtles. It even has the word 'Smash' in the title.

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash Up

N-Europe
9 October 2009
  • Conclusion: TMNT: Smash Up does so much right in the ring that it's a shame that it is sucker punched by a shallow character roster, lack of battle arenas and poor presentation.
  • 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
