  1. A hugely disappointing update to a franchise that was once reverred in the videogames industry - why is there no 4P option?
  2. 40
    Another annoying aspect of TMNT is its overly punishing difficulty. While you can coast through early portions by mashing away, later stages and boss fights can be stupid-hard.
  3. It’s sad to think that with all its high-tech fanciness of the new console generation, TMNT can’t even muster up the personality and gameplay of the old arcade games.
  4. Feels cheeky to be criticising a scrolling beat 'em up for being too shallow, but TMNT is possibly one of the most tedious ever. Repetition is only acceptable when you're repeating something gratifying. [Jan 2004, p.109]
  5. It's not bad because it's unplayable. It's bad because everything it sets out to do feels 15 years old, or frustrating and repetitive.
  6. The new game is a little bland, and just doesn’t really excite the same way that the old ones do. It’s the worst game under the Ninja Turtle franchise, and is worth a rental at most.

    Good brawler for younglings , and very nice levels to say. Simple gameplay and cool cartoonish graphics makes a nice feeling. And everyGood brawler for younglings , and very nice levels to say. Simple gameplay and cool cartoonish graphics makes a nice feeling. And every character has that unique way too play, that you already have a bond with their abilities and style. Full Review »

    well, i cant lie... you people have read my reviews in the past "Signed SHURNKEN SCROT" i rated many games including swat global strikewell, i cant lie... you people have read my reviews in the past "Signed SHURNKEN SCROT" i rated many games including swat global strike team. i will now attempt to rate it, the turtle boys turn me on... its true and i am not ashamed... there bandanas make my genitals levitate! it is a very erotic game ... in the game you beat little children with num chuck fus! this is dishonurable, they run to your turtle master (who is a sewer rat with a pink robe) and molest him.. they really enjoy shoving turtle soup down their throats... the turtles love themselvs and they love me.. i cannot lie... we have mated on many occasions... if you wish for more information about our love life... visit www.magesandminions.com it should clearly explain everything to you about our life ... i love you all, i want the red turtle to unleash his genitals and make love to the blue one right infront of me... i know they would do it if i requested it.. they are a group of pedefiles... this is clear and honourable... i wish to molest the blue bandana turtle! ITS A SEXY TIRTLE... them and the teletubies should hook up and mate! it would be beautiful... i would bend over and lick my balls.... they are quiet round shaped... it shouldne be too hard to like them.. would you like to try licking your own genitals? heres what you do.
    1. you grab your penis and yank it off (this may cause great pain and may kill you)
    2. shove it up your ass
    3.push it in extremely hard and you have to be honourable!
    4. eventually this should make your penis turn white and should automatically make you perform a hamasuckywayu... (this is when you break your ribs and suck your own nuts)
    5. who want try? www.magesandminions.com should have the full detail with animation and several annotated diagrams... thank you for your time my love...
