Average User Score: 4.0Nov 19, 2013Coming from a true fan of the show this pains me greatly to say...But this game was a waste of money and energy.
Essentially a top-down Arcade game gone full retail. Not what fans deserve.
The Land of OOO begs to be explored and here were limited to a hole in the ground and an incredibly tiny portion of the Candy Kingdom to explore.
The absolute worst part about this game is the fact that ANY unspent money or "treasures" earned within "checkpoints" will be forfeited if you do not spend OR WORSE CANT AFFORD TO PURCHASE UPGRADES!!!! the FUH!!! Prepare to throw your money away time and time again!
We deserve a 3rd person, Open World style game. Not this poor excuse for a Retail game.
...I feel like the biggest sucker in the world right now. Im gonna go sulk in a corner
**UPDATE** Thankfully Gamestop had a fair trade in price!!! Im going to stick to renting this game in the future after the initial dissatisfaction goes away.… Expand

By default. OBVI.
Now, before I start I must say that I was born into the Turtles. The cartoon basically aired once I achieved consciousness at around 3 years old. Since before I can remember I have been Turtle fan #1.
This game is basically a copy of Arkham City in it's combat, with some major differences after you've upgraded each of the Turtles... and that's not bad news. At times, it can be frustrating but oh-so satisfying when you get that one good combo run and totally funk everyone the shell up... especially with Raph. (Although, Donnie played incredibly well to my personal strengths as a gamer).
The learning curve is pretty vast and I found myself spending hours with each character just to get each fighting style down to a science. Aside from story, there's Challenge Maps which are essentially a 4 Round combo fest. Then there is my personal favorite, Survival Mode. This will test your skills with the combat in every way.
Here's hoping for more DLC. Anything will do.
Pretty basic story stuff here. April has gone missing. Find and capture her.
What set this ENTIRE game apart though is the dialogue between the Turtles within downtime.
I found myself, many times, just standing in a room and listening to each conversation. Each one is better than the last.
T.U.R.T.L.E Power from the Original movie's end credits.
At first I was in disgust of the Turtles design. But, as time grew on they actually became my favored visual iteration of the Turtles. The enemies all look great and the scenery look grimy and fantastic for an Arcade game.
Although not very inventive at times. Most just deal with repeatedly using specific moves for each Turtle. However, there are a few exceptional and challenging ones.
With Achievements like "Shell YEAH!" how could you go wrong.
A wonderful trip down memory lane that must not be missed by any Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan!!!!
*This game meant the world to me and for that it obviously earned itself a pretty high ranking with this obsessed fan.… Expand
