Summary: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade games were the best. Unfortunately, I don't think Ubisoft knew that. Turtles in Time Reshelled happened to be a pretty sucky game. Now we've got another game from Ubisoft that attempts to revive the arcade games. Did it succeed? Of course not. The presentation is great. After all, we've got that familiar 80s TMNT logo, and the cutscenes are all presented in the style of the original comics. Plus, the graphics are spot-on.
Summary: As a TMNT fan, I looked forward to a old style beat-em-up game featuring the Turtles. While it has its moments, sometimes it feels like it drags on and on. On occation, there were time when you thought you were hitting the enemy and you weren't exactly in front of them and they come up and hit you. However, the comic cut scenes were cool.
Summary: First I think I'll state the good points so I can get those out of the way. The cinematics between stages are a nice nostalgic throwback to the old Mirage Comics. That's it. That's the only good point. In every other way, this game is a disappointment. I don't understand how Ubi Soft can say that this is classic arcade action. It's like they never even played any of the old arcade machines. For one thing, it's more than just enemies coming at you.
Just when everyone stopped caring, TMNT got good again...

Summary: Just when everyone stopped caring about the teenage mutant ninja turtles, the game finally got back-on-track after tons of awful incarnations on various systems. This one that Amazon refers to as "TMNT 2" but elsewhere and on the box is known as "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Arcade Attack" is an homage to the original button-masher complete with a coin-op style continue system.
