TodoSega (Dec, 1994)
Banpresto ha reprogramado el cartucho y nos ha sorprendido gratamente. Nos encontramos entonces con un juego que posee las mismas virtudes que el anterior en cuanto a la aparición des los héroes de la serie, pero que además gana puntos en todos sus apartados. Los Rangers poseen una buena animación, pero una gama más bien limitada de golpes: puñetazo, patada, salto, golpe especial y disparo de arma. Si a esto unimos que con el golpe especial de alguno de ellos es posible acabar con los enemigos sin que te toquen, tenemos un juego que se acaba en dos patadas. A pesar de todo, es entretenido y a seguro que te divertirás con él.
Game Players (Dec, 1994)
Die-hard fans of the show, get ready to love this game and play it until you wear the pads off your fingers. However, those of you who don't happen to think the Power Rangers are the best thing since sliced bread are advised to stay away from this cart, unless you like slow-paced and irritating games.
Video Games & Computer Entertainment (Dec, 1994)
The mood of the game fits the TV show pretty closely, even though they probably should have tried to improve on the game's graphics and playability. The control is just not subtle enough to make this one of the great fighting games. At least you get to fight as both a Ranger and a Zord. Unfortunately, both Rita Repulsa and the Green Ranger are old news.

The Sega Genesis version of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers is a one-on-one fighter... and a relatively boring one at that. You can either play the single-player Scenario Mode, or you can grab a friend and have them pick up a controller for Battle Mode. In the Scenario mode, the different battles are padded with brief cinematics, usually showing either Rita Repulsa scorning the Rangers, or the Megazord/Dragonzord getting summoned. Then you'll get to choose the Power Ranger you want to play as. You'll be up against five different opponents: the Minotaur, the Evil Green Ranger (who will join your repertoire after winning this fight), Madam Woe, Goldar, and Cyclopsis. Each battle has two parts: one with your Ranger on a highway, and the second in the Megazord against a larger version (or, in the case of the Green Ranger, his Dragonzord). The Cyclopsis battle at the end is different, as it is only played with the Megazord; the second battle features a more difficult form of Cyclopsis.
All Game Guide (1998)
I suppose there's nothing inherently evil in taking an existing genre, buying a popular license, and then creating a substandard game. Companies do it all the time. One of the more prominent examples of this is Justice League Task Force. Similar to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Justice League is a fighting game based on a group of popular super heroes. Both games appeal to their respective fan bases, which are huge, but hardcore video gamers prefer innovation and technique over popular characters and mass marketing appeal.
Video Games (Dec, 1994)
Die Entwickler haben ein total anderes Spiel (jetzt im SF2-Gewand) daraus gemacht. Und das gar nicht mal so übel: Zwölf Charaktere mit annehmbaren Special-Moves (Schüsse, Blitzattacken etc.), aber leider nur je ein Punch- und Kick-Button. Und jeder Dreijährige (also wohl genau das Publikum der Serie...) spielt es auf Anhieb durch, Also eigentlich nur was für fanatische Fans. Alle anderen sollten sich lieber ein besseres Exemplar aus dem wohl mittlerweile den Mount Everest überragenden Berg der Beat'em Ups heraussuchen, z.B Samurai Shodown.
Computer and Video Games (CVG) (Feb, 1995)
Only a complete moron would pay money for this cack-handed and unplayable beat-'em-up, made worse by the fact that the game only utilises two of the joypad's firebuttons.
GamePro (US) (Dec, 1994)
A great license doesn't always make a great game. Stick with the Game Gear and Super Nintendo carts - you'll be repulsed by this powerless battle with Rita.
Sega-16.com (Jun 19, 2006)
Overall, this title reeks of sloppiness and the â€œrush it out the doorâ€? mentality that was so prevalent with Sega during the mid and late '90s. Literally one more week cleaning up this game could have made it infinitely more playable, and another month could have produced a product that was appealing to both the younger set AND hardcore fighting fanatics. Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers on the Genesis is a genuinely entertaining game on the first short playthrough and it will give you and a buddy a nice diversion for a few hours, but as it stands, that's likely all the Morphin' time you'll want to spend with it. Grab a copy for some quick nostalgia if you see it for a few dollars, but soon you'll wish you could morph this clunker into another game. For some real Mighty Morphin' action, check out either of the far-superior Game Gear titles.

Fans of the show might want to give Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers a shot, but there's only about an hours' worth of entertainment here - tops.
