GameSpot writes: "If you have the inclination to be patient with Turtles in Time Re-Shelled, you'll be able to overcome many of the game's frustrating aspects. However, there's no real incentive to do so. The game offers nothing beyond the nine levels of the campaign, and those can be completed in an hour. There are ways to revisit the same levels and ratchet up the challenge, but the gameplay loses its luster after the first few levels. And by the time you've beaten the game, it's unlikely you'll want to come back. Re-Shelled is shallow and unremarkable, with just enough frustration to make it mildly unpleasant. Nostalgic challenge-seekers may find some fun here, but all others should look for better ways to spend their time".
