Turtles In Time ReShelled: GT Review
Bond and I played through most of this last night and I have to say it was pretty fun and brought back many good memories. While the new graphics look nice, the music and sound are a definite downgrade from the original arcade version, which is a disappointment. The game remains extremely simple to play, even for an arcade style beatemup. There are 2 attack buttons, jump, and you move from left to right killing everything and dodging myriad environmental obstacles, while fighting the occasional boss. For 800 points its a fun trip down memory lane, but I cant see myself playing it more than once in a while, especially with a top notch vintage beatemup like Streets of Rage 2 on XBLA, and next gen beatemups like Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 coming down the pipe.
