  • Summary: TMNT3 puts more of a focus on teamwork, character development and control than any other console Turtles game to date. Gamers can play as their favorite Turtle alone or with up to three friends, earning experience points along the way as they slash and bash Foot Ninjas and powerful, well-known bosses from the TMNT universe. These experience points allow players to improve and evolve their Turtles' traits and abilities for more varied, powerful attacks and moves. The Ninja Scroll System is another new feature on TMMT3. Being able to select which ninja scrolls to use allows the Turtles to use various special abilities strategically. Cooperative play lies at the heart of TMNT3 and gamers who team up with friends for multiplayer action are rewarded with exclusive features such as Cooperative Attack for even more shell shocking damage to enemies. The effect of this attack changes depending on the number of players working together (between 2-4 players). For even greater control, TMNT3 features a new combat system called the Target Attack system that lets gamers play more instinctively and strategically. With the Target Attack system, players will be able to lock onto specific enemies and block, dodge or counter attack accordingly for smoother and more maneuverable combat. Story Mode can be played with 1-4 players. Even when you have less than 4 players to play, the other Turtles will be at your side, controlled through AI. All the Turtles can participate in Cooperative Attack to beat enemies and players can give commands to the AI. Expand

  1. A fun action game that improves on flaws of the previous turtle games. This is definitely worth a weekend rental or purchase for turtle fans!
  2. This is a fun little romp that captures the feeling of the old school arcade game, while adding some features that keep the game from feeling too dated.
  3. Mutant Nightmare is simply a fun game. It doesn't bring anything revolutionary to the table, but it is very entertaining.
  4. It does offer the upgrade system which redeems it, but overall the game is kind of boring.
  5. 55
    It's a vapid action game without the refined control and visual flair required of a game with no soul.
  6. To its credit, Mutant Nightmare is a touch better than the last game, "Battle Nexus," in that it doesn't force-feed you a gaggle of terribly clunky platforming sequences to try to keep things interesting. But beyond that meager distinction, this still isn't a very enjoyable game.
  7. Even the classic "TMNT: Turtles in Time" bonus arcade game doesn't run as smoothly as it should. [Jan 2006, p.114]

    Not quite what i wanted, to start with it didn't felt like the first Teen Age Mutant Ninja Turtles from 2003, that by normal saying, it was hell of a fun game. There wasn't any motivation to beat the game, too uninspired. Expand
