As many people know the best em up genre of gaming was very popular back in the late 80’s and the early 90’s . But when it came down to big beat em up arcade titles from the early 90’s both TMNT: Turtles of Time and X-Men arcade were among two of the most memorable games that comes to mind. X-Men Arcade game was quite unique especially considering the fact that it was probably the only title in arcade centers to feature multiplayer gameplay that could allow up to six players simultaneously. Despite, having very basic gameplay is a title that is considered to be a classic especially considering how popular the X-Men series would become during the first half of the 90’s.
Even though, X-Men was very popular between 1991-1995 The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series was still big back in the early 90’s. The soundtrack along with the different stages which included four person multiplayer gameplay was amazing for those who played TMNT: Turtles in Time back in arcade centers during the early 90’s. In terms of which Konami game was better overall really depends on which series you were more a fan of back in the day. But in terms of being a more adventurous beat em up game with a higher replay value most people would be more inclined to choose TMNT: Turtles in Time over X-Men Arcade.
