Review: ‘TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge’ is a brilliant ode to the franchise’s peak era

The combat is deeper than anything from 1990s, but the system isn’t so complex as to be burdensome. It feels just right for newcomers and veterans alike.

REASONS TO REPLAY

Although the campaign isn’t long, “Shredder’s Revenge” does offer players plenty of reasons to replay the game after the story mode is over. The game lets players pick up to seven heroes that include the core turtle team, April O’Neil, Splinter and Casey Jones (He’s available once they beat the campaign). What’s smart is that each hero can be leveled up through gameplay and gain more health, Ninja Power meter and other perks. If players want to explore the campaign’s depth, they can power up each of the other characters who all have their own distinct styles of play.

Donatello has range with his bo, but he’s slow. Raphael is powerful but players need to be good at short-range fighting. In addition, the game has multiple challenges and secrets hidden throughout each episode, so there’s even more incentive to tackle the campaign multiple times. It’s a game that’s so fun and easy to pick up that players won’t mind that.

That’s just a testament to how much love is in every pixel of “Shredder’s Revenge.” Fans can feel the affection for the franchise, and it shines through every button presses and cowabunga.
