Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles - Tournament Fightersa game by Konami
Time to get mean and green with the Genesis! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters dishes out its own unique brand of fighting action, which is different from the SNES version. Even if it won't make you forget Street Fighter II Special Champion Edition, it's at least a good stablemate.
Hey, somebody wrapped a story line around a fighting game! Four evil purple Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have bagged Master Splinter and whisked him away to Dimension X. Now the green good guys must mount a rescue by recruiting fishy Ray Fillet, buggy Sisyphus, Casey Jones (of course), and even April O' Neil for some feisty one-on-one fighting action.
The aforementioned lineup ought to make TMNT fans go "ahhhhh." This game draws its bad-amphibian attitude, as well as its I characters, directly f from the comic book. You can choose from the eight heroic characters. The four sinister Turtles and crafty clones of your pals lead the bad guys. Later, as you beat up on Krang's gang, you face Triceraton, Krang, and Karai (the supremely evil female Shredder-wannabee).
Fighting As You Like It
Tournament Fighters plants your tail in four fighting modes, where you definitely get your one-on-one workout. In Story Mode, you planet hop to seven worlds and pound it out in a spaceship. Tournament Mode tests you in 88 matches, where you must beat each character 11 times. Naturally, you can pound a pal in Two Player Mode. It's highly likely you'll need a workout via Practice Mode.
The game offers adequate handicapping. You can adjust each fighter's Speed and Power to eight settings, pump up skill levels eight notches, and give yourself up to seven continues. You can also set wins for the best out of two, five, or seven rounds.
- Following a special attack projectile hi is a good way to set up another attack.
- CPU opponents love it when you jump in to attack.
- Press Down-Toward to pull a low Fierce blow with any character.
Tournament Fighters for the Genesis puts up a good, fun fight, but it's not as complex as either Street Fighter II Special Champion Edition or Tournament Fighters for the SNES. Street Fighter stalwarts will like the fact that you can string together some moves for Combos, but they'll miss the absent SF-style Two-in-Ones.
Just the same, you get a workable arsenal, even though fighting only uses two buttons on the standard controller. There are six punches, six kicks, a hold or a choke, and a block. Additionally, every character has three or four Special Attacks. Button С is only used to taunt your foes. That's a kick when you're beating up a buddy, but using С for added firepower would have been preferable.
The punches and kicks include Fierce blows when you press the directional pad towards an opponent. This also means hitting the diagonal directionals with precision and frequency, sometimes a challenge with an old Genesis controller.
- To make a throw or a choke, move into your opponent, press Left or Right toward your foe, then hit B.
- Try to fake out human opponents. Make a move that the other guy will try to block, then hit him with your real attack.
- Learn to block or learn to accept defeat.
- When an opponent jumps in on you, you can usually nail 'em with a low blow. Press Down and hit either A or B.
Eyes, Bars, & Shells
The graphics are good Genesis fare. Turtle fans will dig the comic's supporting cast of characters come to life, such as Casey Jones.
Get your ears in gear. The rad rocking music rises a notch above other fighting games. The effects sound off effectively with violent grunts, groans, and body shots.
Fight the Good Fight
TMNT: Tournament Fighter is a good Genesis fighting game. Although it can't vie for Street Fighter's top spot, it pounds out a solid bid for second place. If you want a break from the Street Fightin' action, warm down with the Turtles.
