  • Summary: Based on the all-new CGI TMNT movie, Ubisoft's TMNT video game takes place in New York City, a city plagued with fast-moving shadows and attacks from strange creatures. Could the wealthy and mysterious Max Winters be involved? New York City needs the Turtles now more than ever but they face their most trying time both as heroes and as brothers. With the fate of the City and their family at stake, it's up to Leonardo with Zen Master Splinter to restore unity and ninja discipline to the Turtles. In this highly immersive experience, join the Ninja Turtles team and experience intense acrobatic navigation, collaborative combat and powerful fighting moves. Engage in over-the-top Ninja action to reunite the Turtles and save New York City. Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are playable, each with unique acrobatic moves, weapons and combat skills, such as Michelangelo’s fast nunchuk face slap and Raphael’s powerful Sai throw.

  1. TMNT does only 2 things--platforming and fighting--but it does them so right that the replayability is off the charts. [Apr 2007, p.38]
  2. 75
    The cool platforming elements make this one worth at least a rental--if only so one can revisit the days when "Cowabunga" was a socially acceptable thing to say.
  3. Though the running and jumping portion of the game is pretty decent, the fighting is monotonous and repetitive, and is just plain dull.
  4. This is by no means the car crash of a game that Ubisoft's withholding led us to expect; it's more of a severe car scrape against a bollard. [June 2007, p.42]
  5. A missed opportunity. [June 2007, p.88]
  6. The real shame is that TMNT once had a legacy of good video games--recent titles such as this one have sent that history to the sewers. [May 2007, p.85]
  7. It was radioactive ooze that spawned the Turtles, but it's your brain that will turn to ooze trying to get some decent entertainment out of this sludgy beat 'em up.

    Good game. Personally, I give it an 8 overall because I really like the interface. Games like this and Ice Age 2 really appeal to me due to the way the controls work. Control movement with the analog stick, attack by moving the wiimote, lots of button use, etc. Expand

    Not a bad game. The controls work well, and I'm satisfied with my purchase. If you have more than one system, you might want to check reviews between the Wii version and this one. The one thing that makes the Wii version stand out is the mini-games. Expand

    Two words, SINGLE PLAYER! Ninja Turtles has always been multiplayer so I was hugely disappointed that this one isn't. What is with the Wii not having any multiplayer games aside from the cheesy party ones? Expand

    Sure the game is linear. Sure there a no fighting upgrades, really! No Multiplayer. Not much collectibles. No destructible environments. And a confusing storyline. In fact, let Expand

    I wish I had got this game on PS2. Cheat Code Central hits the target: "I found myself wishing that I could just hit buttons to attack instead of pointlessly shaking the controllers back and forth." The enemies take a rather long time to defeat so your arm will be aching by the end of a simple battle. I hated how you could run against walls when running to places but not during combat; that would have made things more intersting. Overall, it was some decent "fun", but the bad aspects overshadow the good. Expand

    I like the GameSpot review. It sums it up nicely. There are some cool aspects to the game. Like the story and the ninja-like gameplay. but there are too many flaws to really enjoy the game as much as you could. The levels seem to be too long (took me 30 minutes to beat one of the levels) and the combat does suck ass. Expand
