    "I definitely love the early 90s because most of my favorite arcade game like The Simpsons and of course TMNT: Turtles in time was released during that time. This one was a lot better compared to other turtles game when it comes to graphics and controls "

    "The Tekken series is indeed the greatest fighting game of all time and I'm confused as to why this isn't on the top 1 solution? I mean c'mon, Tekken 3 was the best arcade game and everybody was playing this during the 90s. Compared to earlier Tekken games this has more realistic jumps and the recovery for characters was way better"
