Konami's latest dip into the sewers of Manhattan produces a workable NES fight, but it comes up a tad murky. Yanking the Turtles' weapons definitely makes them lose some bite. Either ya gotta love them Turtles or you must really need a NES fight to get into this cart.

So toll das NES auch mitprügelt – am Ende verließen die Hardware dann doch die Kräfte: Besonders negativ fällt mal wieder das altbekannte Flackerproblem ins Gewicht. Beide Kämpfer flackern während des Spiels so heftig, daß die Augen schnell genervt sind. Negativ fällt auch der Mangel an Kämpfern, ihren Bewegungen und Hintergründen auf. Schon nach wenigen Runden kennt Ihr alles – Langzeitmotivation bleibt auf dem NES aus. Trotzdem sind die Turtles der bis jetzt am besten gelungene Versuch, ein Prügelspiel auch auf dem NES möglich zu machen – vielleicht stimmen ja die Gerüchte, daß das echte Street Fighter II umgesetzt wird.

The NES was never known for it's fighting games, released long before the genre really caught on. This is the best you'll probably do on the system if your looking for some one-on-one fighting action. The baffling deletion of the weapons is an unforgivable oversight, but the talented group over at Konami made this one probably the best it could be. Still, you'll be much better over on the Super NES where the best version of this game lies.
