Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is out today.
The much-anticipated release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is finally upon us. And while fans of classic TMNT video games were hopeful that this would live up to expectations, it is actually exceeding expectations.
The game currently has an 87 out of 100 on OpenCritic with 97 percent of critics recommending the game. It’s even receiving perfect scores from some reviewers who praise its nostalgia-inducing gameplay while staying fresh and relevant for a modern video game.
“Shredder’s Revenge feels like it was made by people just like me, for whom Turtles in Time was a formative experience,” Lucas White writes for Prima Games. “It’s like a tidal wave of nostalgia crashing into technological advancements, new ideas, evolved talent, reverence, and a dash of ironic self-deprecation.”
“Shredder’s Revenge is nothing short of lightning in a bottle; one of those rare examples of a game that simply doesn’t miss a beat from the moment it starts until the credits roll,” Hey Poor Player says.
On the more critical end of the spectrum, Metro Game Central writes that it is “a lovingly crafted retro homage, made with skill and obvious affection for the source material – but there’s very little attempt at innovation and little to interest non-fans playing on their own.”
Shredder’s Revenge is out now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch.
