TMNT Smash-Up

TMNT Smash-Up is silmar of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Smash-Up all about batting friends in high-speed, multiplayer contests, and it's lots of fun. Players familiar with Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Brawl games will be right at home with Smash-Up. Novices, too, will have no problem with the simple controls, which allow for one-button primary and secondary attacks, with controller stick movement activating variations on these. Fans of the franchise will find lots to love as well, with bonus items like collectibles, comic book covers from the original series, and unlockable characters and mini games. The one big issue with Smash-Up, is the graphics. Because the screen is sometimes busy with action, the muddy and unpolished visuals can obscure what's happening and cause some frustration.

Online interaction: Players can battle others in online tournaments, though the gameplay doesn't vary from regular play as there's no voice or text chat.
