Summary: Reviews are in for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Today sees the arrival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge on multiple platforms, including Switch.

In case you missed any pre-release coverage, this is a classic-inspired fighting game starring not only the Turtles, but plenty of other familiar faces as well. There is also multiplayer for up to six players. If you’re still not convinced, read on for the roundup of reviews so far.

First, we will highlight ours briefly. We gave the game an “excellent” 9 out of 10 stars:

Right, with that out of the way, here are some thoughts from elsewhere, starting with IGNwho gave this new release an 8 out of 10:

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is exactly what it sounds like: a carefully crafted reimagining of TMNT arcade beat-em-ups from one of the best beat-em-up developers in the business today.”

Nintendo World Report gave the last turtle game 9 out of 10:

“In short, if you’re a TMNT fan or love fighting games, you’re sure to enjoy the colorful and light-hearted Shredder’s Revenge, especially if you can find other ninjas to chill with.”

GamesBible he was just as enthralled, awarding another score of 9 out of 10:

“Proceedings Shredder’s Revenge along with the likes of streets of rage 4 Y River City Girls as a contemporary masterpiece of its kind, an exemplary demonstration of how to dress up a well-trodden stylistic path after so many experiences, and somehow make the journey that much more special than the destination.”

EGM gave it 4 out of 5 stars, but it had some problems:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Shredder’s Revenge seeks to bring back the glory days of Konami’s side-scrolling arcade games and homebrew hits based on everyone’s favorite young green ninjas. In their visuals and gameplay, Dotemu and Tribute Games have not only matched those retro classics they pay homage to here, but perhaps even surpassed them. Sadly, this time travel is somewhat marred by inconsistent audio and an Arcade mode that feels more like an effort than a thrill.”

And last but not least, GoNintendo – another medium that he loved:

“TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is the genuine article, and once again demonstrates how Dotemu has incredible respect/understanding for classic beat’em-ups. We now know that Tribute Games is capable of doing the exact same thing, and these two teams have resulted in not only one of the best TMNT games of all time, but one of the best beat’em-ups in years.”
