    Come on, let the dead rest in peace. This utterly pointless, crappy beat-'em-up, should never have seen the light of day. The game tries to bring Konami's 8-bit games into this millennia, but the result is a complete failure. [Oct 2013]

    Short, disgraceful and terribly unfun: it's hard to recommend this game (even to diehard TMNT fans). No, definitely not Cowabunga at all.

The combat may not be on the level of the arkham games even though it is quite inspired in them, but for a 15 dollar game, it is quite deep. Had this game's production been pushed further towards a full AAA retail game, it would have been a beast! Support the game guys and gals, it is the best bang for your buck at the price point it stands. The only con is that the content and characters are restricted to the first season of the nick cartoon, hopefully the game does good enough to guarantee a sequel with more characters and bosses.

    Not that bad but its not as good as Turtles in time for SNES. I personally didnt like the new look but it grew on me. The thing that bug meNot that bad but its not as good as Turtles in time for SNES. I personally didnt like the new look but it grew on me. The thing that bug me the most is the gameplay. my favorite turtle is Ralph but hes pretty terrible as an offensive player. You have to play more defensively which sucks. I didnt like how the difficulty gets crank to 11 out of no where. They only give you a little clue where to go, plus the enemies weapons just freezes in mid air. Graphically is not that bad but the trailers looked better then the actual game and like I said the turtles new look grew on me very fast.

    Graphics: 8/10 the beta trailers looked better
    Sound:6/10 very bland voice acting
    Gameplay 5/10 too many bugs and the response time attacks is very slow, come on guys even if they are turtles they should move faster if they are ninjas. If that makes sense
    Replay Value 4/10 Im not going to replay the campaign but playing the arcade local is the only thing that shines more then the campaign mode since it has the 2-D side scroller camera

    OVERALL 6/10 OK but not worth a buggy game and needs more time to be better, the team tried and for a 15 dollar game they did a pretty good job but not perfect in gameplay mechanics

    A not-great port of a not-great game. Its combat wants to be Arkham City's Combat, but it just doesn't feel good at any point. SwitchingA not-great port of a not-great game. Its combat wants to be Arkham City's Combat, but it just doesn't feel good at any point. Switching between characters during combat can be kinda fun, but gets old quickly, and the only other part of the game, the traversal, suffers from the same lack of fluidity that plagues the combat. All that's left are the rushed-looking comic style cinematics to tie it all together. Expand

The combat feels weighted and the controls are clunky. The feels like a light breeze of effort and there is nothing new or interesting added to the universe. Sorry but the winds of nostalgia were not enough to sail on, also boat metaphors. Expand
