Quoted from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up Reviews:Check out these quotes from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up reviews & previews
"I'm from a particular age group that, when listing the greatest fighting games of the day, makes sure to includes Konami's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters -- the Super NES version, of course! All for good reason, too: What could have been a simple limp-wristed Street Fighter 2 knockoff was actually a capable, fun, truly arcade-inspired fighter with a good mix of characters from favorites to the slightly obscure. There was no better TMNT fighting game. Still, Ubisoft's TMNT Smash-Up is, in some ways, the next coming of Tournament Fighters, and in other ways, a couple of steps behind. Smash-Up was developed by Game Arts -- the same group responsible for doing much of the work on last year's Super Smash Bros. Brawl. So, it's probably no surprise to anyone that Smash-Up's gameplay is nearly identical to Brawl's: a two-button attack system and simple methods to block, dodge, and use items. One new (and rather sweet) move is a wall attack where characters can hang onto a wall and immediately perform a divebomb attack to the nearest enemy, which is handy and surprisingly powerful. But the game's victory conditions move away from Smash Bros.' unique "damage percentage" system; instead, your attacks deplete your opponents' good ol' fashioned health bars (or knock them far enough out of the level, which is like Smash). It wasn't really broke, so they didn't really fix it. Therefore, there's little to complain about there."
"Can the Smash Bros boys give us some Rocksteady fun?"
"This brawler has good combat and solid content, but it lacks the refinement and razzle-dazzle to earn a title shot. "
"The turtles you remember from your childhood return in a way you might not expect."
"Perhaps Ubisoft realized the error of its ways: instead of trying to build a fighter from the ground up, the publisher had an established developer take their previous efforts and turn it into a Turtles game. In other words, the Wii Smash Bros. team recycled all the work it did for Nintendo and turned it into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up. "
