The one with the turtles is a franchise that refuses to die. From its origins in the comics and cartoon series to Jim Henson’s dollhouse movie and Michael Bay explosions, the brand has always had a place to return to its earliest TV childhood. Now it’s time to return to that era in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.
I know what I’m about to say isn’t very popular, but I’m not a big fan of Konami beat ’em ups.. With a few exceptions like Vendetta, Metamorphic Force, simpson Yes turtles in time, the me against the quarter of the Gradius society always infuriated me at their commands, with an uncertain blow response in which the rivals always had an advantage over the player. Because? Probably due to the simple collection effort of gobbling up coins from the poor devils as we approached his furniture, but I never ceased to feel that Sega and Capcom were always more fair in the current field. That’s why the first thing I thought of when I heard about the project of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder’s Revenge it was that hopefully it wasn’t too konamicentric.
Did it end up being? To my delight, I’d say no, and I think all the decisions they’ve made to honor the firm’s various beat ’em ups They were more in aesthetics than in playability, which seems to me to be a total success in the first hours when we were able to play the expected software. We discussed it back then Streets of Rage 4 review: It is inexcusable to create today a title of the genre that is not able to meet the expectations of the greatest in history with all that we know and how relatively easy it is to be at the level today today. With the little that we could play, Shredder’s Revenge will be a new benchmark in the genre Undoubtedly, but it’s not perfect for that.
What awaits you at the controls of the game in a year when it looks like the Turtles will return to video games with a brilliant compilation and a new opus of the genre that made them shine the most? Well what you imagine: smell of sewage, pizza with totally unexpected ingredients and a crew of turtles screaming cowabunga which will transport you for good in your more tender childhood.
