The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle arcade game should’ve stayed in my second-grade memories, apparently. Turns out most of my recollections of the game center around fighting in real life over who got to be Michelangelo, and with good reason: The actual game is pretty crappy. You will probably remember this as a classic for the same reason you remember looking totally sweet in Superman pajamas with a towel around your neck: Little kids are idiots. The only way this would be fun these days is if you managed to round up a four-player game, but if you’re still that into the TMNT you don’t have three friends. Sierra’s 3D Ultra Minigolf is the better party-game buy. It’s not Cloning Clyde innovative, but its Outlaw Golf at putt-putt theme is at least fun beyond a 30-second nostalgia high. It’s impossible-in-real-life interactive holes and gravity changes are reminiscent of the great Fuzzy’s World of Miniature Space Golf and the online play and multiple-stroke styles (hehehe) make it worth the point investment.
