Is Jared shell-shocked by the new Ninja Turtles game?
Pretty much everything I thought was wrong with it after playing it this weekend. Pretty disappointed with this game.
Ninja Turtle games, as a whole, are either mediocre or disappointing, so I’m not too surprised by this. The 2003 series revival games were standard run and attack with little inspiration, the Smash Up game was OK, but could’ve been so much better, and in short, I can’t think of an outstanding TMNT titles since Turtles in Time for SNES and Hyperstone Heist on Genesis..
This game has a lot of bugs – really bad clipping issues where you get stuck in a wall or floor, freezing, etc. I think Microsoft pressured the developers to have it out in time for Summer of Arcade. It’s a fun game with a pretty deep combo/combat system and some neat references to the turtles franchise, but it could have been much much more.
