cylemoore's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled (PlayStation Network (PS3)) review

My biggest beef with the game...

 Alright well here we go, first off I want to say that I played and loved the original and use to play it all the time with my brother when I was a kid, so I would think that I know a lot about this game... Yes they change up the levels... what no Technodrome? WTF! Cement Man? what the hell is this Mega Man... at least name him Mud Man or something cause I was in prehistoric times and there was no cement around when dinosaurs where around!!! But my biggest problem with that game is the SCORING SYSTEM! I'm pretty sure no one has commented on this before, but I liked the old system when you killed a foot soldier it was 1 point, when you threw the foot soldier from side to side it was 2 points, and when you throw the foot soldier at the screen it was 3 points... In the old game it took me almost the entire game to get to 1000 points, but in this one I already surpassed that within the third level. Also I missed whenever I got to 200 points I earned a 1up... I know we are in a day and age when trophies and achievements are all that matter to people, but they should have a least changed the scoring system. I know I am complaining about something that some people don't care about, but I remember the times on level 2 where I could throw all of the foot soldiers at the tv or close to it. Oh and also I hated the so called bonus levels in the old game, which are just normal ones now, because you could just hit them once and they would die. Now I have to take on a lot of them while trying to beat the crap out of them, but maybe that was on Hard mode, but I haven't tried any of the other modes. I will try Hardcore mode though... Last but not least I will complain about the enemies... NO Bebop and Rocksteady, NO Super Shredder, No Rat King, and NO Slash... Yes I know this is a port of the Arcade version that doesn't have these characters in it, and yes I was use to the SNES version of the game. But the SNES version was far more superior in my opinion and I wish they would have stuck with that one. But the game is still fun and if you love the Turtles then you must buy it... hell even my 2 year old son thinks it is pretty cool, even though he doesn't know how to play it. I hope they maybe remake the original 3 TMNT's that were on the NES too in 3D, except for maybe the first one cause it was hard as hell...

    Sometimes the Old-School Should Stay Old-School 0

      Note - I bought this at a discounted price on the Playstation Store (half its original price) and plus this game came out about a few months ago too. The four player beat-em-up is as old-school as it gets when it comes to video games. They are simple to play, but hard as nails to the point you keep spending your quarters to continue. That was the case with Konami's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles beat-em-up games. They were timeless arcade classics at the same time being true to the source ma...

    Attention: old-school turtles fans! Most of you will remember Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (IV): Turtles in Time. An iconic side-scrolling beat ‘em up which hit the arcades in 1991 and the SNES later in 1992. If you’ve missed the chance to play it since, rejoice, as you’ve now got a chance to in TMNT: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled, available over Playstation Network (and Xbox Live Arcade). It’s a remake, therefore is in a nut-shell, the same game with flashier graphics. You’ll complete the same lev...
