Sucked the fun right out of it...
23 June 2010
Summary: Long story short- The TMNT Turtles in Time arcade game was great in a number of ways-bright colorful graphics, an awesome soundtrack and sound effects and 4-player co-op play. While the new ReShelled edition retains 4 player co-op, the entire experience is a total letdown.
Summary: As with most gamers, I recall the excellent sessions with the SNES version of TMNT: Turtles In Time. However, what most gamers failed to realize prior to this titles release is that THIS ISN'T THE SNES VERSION.
Summary: I picked this up from the Xbox Live Arcade while it was on sale (during one of those Gold-Exclusive Deal of the Week bits) for 400 points (the equivalent of $5) and I feel cheated; I wouldn't spend double that and not want to slap myself silly.
Summary: Turtles in Time Re-shelled has a little good, some that is mediocre, and a lot left wanting. My friends and I all have fond memories of mashing foot soldiers to a pulp across many hours of our misspent youths, so when this game was released I was very excited.
Summary: I'm a huge turtles fan so hearing a remake of arguably the best turtles game of all time was being made I got excited. They used the arcade version as a base which means the game lacks the Technodrome level, Rat King, Slash, Bebop, and Rocksteady.
Summary: I went in to this game with no nostalgia, so people with fond memories might feel differently. Unfortunately, the gameplay is much to bland for me to recommend. You go forward and press X. 1 hour later, you win. Co-op sounds like it would be fun, but somehow ends up being worse than single-player.
