Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up is a fighting game based on the popular comic book turned television mega-franchise. Featuring over 15 playable characters from the TMNT Universe, Smash-Up pits up to four players against each other simultaneously in environments taken straight from the Ninja Turtles world, such as their sewer hideout and the streets of Manhattan.

Déjà Vu

Anyone who has played Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. series or even Capcom’s ten-year-old Power Stone games in the arcade or on the Dreamcast, will feel immediately at home with TMNT: Smash-Up. The game looks, feels, and acts much like Nintendo’s brawler – everything from the player select screen to the varieties of modes offered and the style of play mimic the far superior Smash Bros. games.

Déjà Vu All Over Again

In fact, many of the game’s shortcomings are due simply to how much it borrows and outright copies from Nintendo’s series with merely a Ninja Turtles coat of paint added. Despite lifting so much from Super Smash Bros., and the destroyable environments from the Power Stone series, this game fails to improve upon any of the advancements brought forth to the world of combat games over the past 10 years.

Teenage Mutant Smash Brothers

So what do we have with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up? A game that plays well, offers Ninja Turtles fans plenty to be happy with and really has nothing wrong with it, but just isn’t special, interesting or different. Many people will be perfectly happy with the adequate gameplay options offered but ultimately, I kept on wishing I was playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which came out a year and a half ago and does everything here bigger and better. If you’re a younger gamer or an avid Ninja Turtles fan, or even someone who enjoys fighting games and has never played Super Smash Bros., you will find a lot to love with TMNT: Smash-up.
