Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled is an enhanced remake of the 1991 arcade game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, which itself is a sequel to the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game. Both of the original arcade games were produced by Konami. It is a side scrolling beat 'em up, mostly based on the 1987 animated series, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures and the second movie.
Why It Sucks
The game's graphics, while not that bad, don't have the charm of the arcade and SNES versions. The aesthetic is mostly based on the 2003 animated series.
Drab colors, which is a letdown since the arcade and SNES versions had colorful levels.
Awful music, consisting of generic hard rock tracks. These replaced the original musical themes because they are under copyright (as they sampled the 1987 cartoon's music).
The special move bar doesn't take any health off the meter, unlike the original. Also, it's mapped to the Y (or triangle on the PS3 version), instead of the combo button.
You can't join games on the fly.
The title cards lost the charm of the original title cards.
No replay value whatsoever. There's barely any game modes, and there is no unlockable content!
Horrible boss fights.
Good voice acting.
It has online multiplayer.
It's still the same game as the arcade version (and not the SNES version), and in that context, it does make it a little more acceptable.
