Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up has the lowest review score average, 67% out of 100%, of these four games, and it is also the game that took the longest to debut on the Nintendo Channel with reported game-play hours.  DJ Hero has the highest review score average, 87% out of 100%, out of these games and was released before both Rabbids Go Home and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, but both of those games, RGH and RE:TDC, debuted faster than DJ Hero.
Rabbids Go Home has an average of 79% out of 100%, while Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles has an average of  75% out of 100%.

 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up has finally debuted on the Nintendo Channel.  I don't know if people that bought the game had more time to actually play it over the holidays, and/or people received it as a Christmas gift, and played it after Christmas helping it to finally debut.
I'm not sure why Capcom is complaining about Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles and the sales of the game, as the game debuted faster than a lot of games released this year.
I think Rabbids Go Home's debut is a good sign for a game that was created out of "party games" on the Wii.
As for DJ Hero's debut, while off to a slower start than the other recent music games like the Guitar Hero 5 and The Beatles: Rock Band, I think it'll be interesting to watch how it continues to perform for the first six months of this year.

Have you played any of these games?  If so, what are your opinions from what you've played of them.  If you haven't played them, do you plan on playing any of them?  Check the comments to see if I've played any of them.

If you're interested in purchasing the games, make sure to check them out on!


  1. Out of these four games, the only one I've "played" is DJ Hero. It was set-up in Best Buy, and I played a demo of it, for 2-3 minutes. I don't plan on buying DJ Hero, as I don't buy the music games in general.

    I don't plan on playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up, though I do have a friend that would probably enjoy the game, because he enjoys Ninja Turtles.

    I will probably end up renting Rabbids Go Home and giving it a try, but it won't be a purchase at this point.

    Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles may also be a rental one day.

  2. I got TMNT Smash Up over christmas,
    excellent game for TMNT fans like myself.
    Tons of fanservice imo, you have to look for it though.

    Examples: When you collect pizzas, a comic style text-bubble comes out and says "Yummy!"
    Reminds me of the old arcade games.

    also, when you use the fire-item, the turtles do the animation from the old games "Ouch! my toes my toes!"

    Sorry if this doesnt make sense, hard to type when its late and cold.

    But I really like the game

  3. I've played TMNT Smash up on the PS3, I imagine it'd be the same on the Wii. It brought back a lot of good memories. However, probably due to licensing and copy right regulations but they took out the boss villain, Slash in the Pre Historic Level. They took out the level where Shedder is in a machine and you have to throw the foot clan soldiers to the screen.

    @ArakniD: I know exactly what you're talking about with the turtles going, "Ouch! my toes my toes!"

    I like this game but it only took me and three buddies about an hour or two to burn through the game. Definitely a game that gets it's use from having other people play with you. Not something I would buy unless it was $5.

  4. I resemble that TMNT remark. Thanks for the shout out. My brother must still have my TMNT II: The Arcade Game for NES. It came with a coupon for a personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut. Man, those bosses were tough! Ultra Games published TMNT II and was the same company that published Skate or Die! (EA's first internally-developed title). I had to read a book in 11th grade -- interesting read -- called Rats Saw God, and Skate or Die was the name of the skateboarding group.

  5. @Araknid:
    Glad to see they have some things in the game that fans will appreciate. I hope you enjoy the game and get many hours out of it.

    @Nicodemus at Nite:
    Did you play the PS2 version, on the PS3? There isn't a PS3 version of this game from what I know, just a Wii and PS2 version.

    LOL, at the personal pan pizza coupon with the TMNT II: The Arcade Game. I had no idea about it, as I don't remember playing any Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Games, just Battletoads.

  6. I already played TMNT in PS3 but I think it is somewhat similar to Wii. But I loved the game so much. My brother love to play TMNT II that our uncle bought from US. My brother always love to play the game.


Keep the comments clean. Rated "E" for Everyone. :)
