Turtles In Time Reshelled Demo Impressions

As a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan, I was mildly excited to see the Turtles in Time game as an Xbox Live Arcade game with multiplayer gameplay, updated graphics and such.

Turtles In Time Reshelled was recently reduced in price from 15 dollars to 10, or 800 microsoft points. This really helped get my interest in the game, because I was not about to spend 15 bucks for a remake of a Super Nintendo game. And since I collect classic gaming consoles I debated whether it was a BETTER idea to get the original game on the Super Nintendo as opposed to this one. Well, sadly its a good thing I demo played the game before being stupid enough to buy it, because this game is not even worth 800 points. 500 points, sure, but 300 more points and I can play it with friends online, no definitely not worth it.

Turtles In Time Reshelled is not very engaging as a game, the controls in regard to the 360 controller are simple button mashing with no variety. If your like me and want to collect consoles such as Super Nintendo, wait for that time and just buy the game then. This treatment by Ubisoft is all graphics and nothing else, this is the most blatant repackaging that offers nothing worth it. Even with multiplayer, its probably going to be no fun because I own Castle Crashers and that game has more variety and satisfaction than this game.

Don't waste your money on this game unless you don't plan on owning a Super Nintendo and know you will have willing friends ready to play multiplayer. And even then, be prepared for a boring experience.

  1. Yeah, i'd have to agree. I also thought the demo was pretty bland. The graphics may be upped, but the animations are still choppy, and don't even get me started on the HORRIBLY remixed music.

    Definitely not getting it, i'd rather buy a copy for the SNES
