Everybody's favourite arcade beat em up starring the 4 green turtles are back! But can the 3D visuals make up for the games other flaws?
Turtles in Time for the SNES is just a personal favorite all time game of mine. It is for sure the best beat em ups I have played and when I heard of 3D animated remake I was extremely interested. I downloaded the game on PSN today and it was very cool to see the visuals jump to life out of the arcade/SNES. But other than a few minor CONS it for sure could have been a lot better. First off let me start with my first complaint. THE MUSIC! The music is not TMNT and more importantly it is not good to hear. I would have loved to have the original music here to add for the big nostalgia feel. The fighting system could have had a bit more to it. Updating it a bit would have been nice for more funnier gameplay. What worked than doesn't work now. However the voice acting is nice here making it on par with the original. Perhaps the biggest problem rivalling the music is the removing of some levels. Looks like Ubisoft was rushing to get the game out on XBL and PSN and this caused it's ultimate problem. The game should have had all the classic levels here. By the time I got to the final battle with splinter I realized it was the end of the game and I still hadn't had the classic elevator battle and the coolest and one of my favorite levels of the game which is when you have to trough the foot clan members towards Splinter is a cool 3D moment. To play online is a great add on. Beat em is still fun,to see the graphics and animations come to life is cool to see. You can play story mode,survival and quick mode online with other users.However once you get to 3-4 players the screen becomes cluttered and you lose sight of your character and you get confused with other turtles since they all look the same besides the color of course. Not to mention the constant explosions and foot clan members attacking you does not help however when it comes to the boss battle things spread out smoothly and is clear to play without causing to much confusing even with 4 players. I would say go head and play it only if you are a die hard fan of TMNT and the original game like myself. This for sure is not a bad game by any means. Although because of the removed levels game can be completed in half an hour and that's not even on easy difficulty although the challenge modes and difficulty settings keeps the replay value good.
PROS Graphics, Nostalgia, Beat em up fun!, Online, Trophies, Good replay value
CONS Removed levels from the original arcade/SNES, Online can get clustered once 3-4 players come in, Original music replaced with bad music, Shorter game due to levels removed
