Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles PS2 Review
31 May 2010
Excerpt: We have fond childhood memories of the Teenage Mutant “Hero” Turtles, they represented everything that was cool to us and also happened to be giant -Pizza eating- turtles named after famous painters, it was a terrible concept but at the time we loved it.
Conclusion: Despite being considered last-gen, the graphics easily hold their own with more modern hardware and include some beautifully realised locations. Undoubtedly this has been aided in part by the decision to fix the camera angle and perhaps because of this the sense of scale is impressive, from the...
Excerpt: TMNT, the game based on the recently released Ninja Turtles movie, falls strictly under the 'made for under 10s' heading. While some of us twenty-somethings have fond memories of the Turtles, the new movie wasn't made for us and neither was the game.
Excerpt: Y’know, there are times when you just long for a good old-fashioned scrolling beat-’em-up along the lines of the Megadrive’s Streets of Rage series. Usually, when this kind of hunger strikes, its time to dig into the miles and miles of cable in your cupboard, with the idea being that after taking...
Conclusion: At the end of each level you are ranked on how fast you complete the level (something I don’t like as I enjoy taking my time to see all the scenery), how you performed against the enemies and if you collected everything along the way. Will you be Ninja Fast?
Conclusion: Turtles is a let down for fans of the cartoon and previous games. This is not a return to glory, rather a dribble of boring and repetitive gameplay. If you like licensed titles gone horribly awry then get Turtles, otherwise there are many better titles to play over Christmas.
Excerpt: Konami is once again bringing the Turtles franchise to gamers everywhere. This time, as implied above, the turtles are based on the current TV show. Shredder, their all-time nemesis, is causing trouble. The story starts in the Turtles' lair as they are training and mouser robots interrupt them.
Excerpt: Saturday morning cartoons were once a staple of every young child in the early nineties, and along with the cartoons came lunch boxes, straight to video movies, and more importantly, videogames.
Conclusion: Overall TMNT is no more than a basic scrolling beat 'em up with a lack of variation that gets boring quickly - despite its looks there's not enough here for the average gamer, although if you have young'uns I think they'll really enjoy the simplicity of it.
Pros: The nostalgia factor., Graphics are nice., Something for the kids?
Cons: Gets booorrring way too quickly, Lack of moves., No 4-player.
