a childs game, not a game for adults

Summary: This game was a disapointment and not what I expected it to be. It's geared towards more of a young gamer or someone who is not very good at video games. My 5 year old was able to play it with no problems, I would not pay very much if anything for this game.
Summary: I got this game for Christmas, I was hesitant to buy it because of the poor reviews it has received. Turns out the reviewers weren't kidding. This game is terrible in all aspects. I guess Activision and Nick were trying to make a quick and simple game for kids. Don't spend your money on this it's a total waste of time.
Summary: The latest iteration of Eastman and Laird's reptile martial artists on Nickelodeon is a fun and spirited take on the franchise. The heroes remain true to type, though Splinter is not a wizened old rodent so much as he is simply wise. The CG animation design works very well for the Ninja Turtles themselves, and the show is respectful and knowing in relation to the original cartoon from the '80s.
Summary: It's Terrible!! We bought this for our five year old and he hardly ever wants to play it. The graphics are like playing an old game and not in a good way. Very repetitive controls! My husband and I played it and within five minutes he said, "I cant believe I bought this game". I have to agree. I wish I would have known sooner. I would have sent it back and got a refund. Don't waste your time or money.
Summary: So I bought TMNT:OOTS a few months ago, and I've been playing it with my son quite a bit. We've finished the game numerous times, and have maxed out all the turtles with stats. With this in mind, I happened to be out shopping and saw this one on the shelves. I figured this one is probably more appropriate for my son, it's four player, and he might enjoy it. It even looks like the new cartoon. This game is the reason why video games should be returnable.
Summary: After reading a few bad reviews, I still picked up this game for my 7 year old son. I figured the negative reviews were coming from skilled gamers who were not the target audience for this game. Boy was I wrong. This game is a complete waste of money... the graphics are pretty bad, the gameplay is insanely repetitive and boring, and the sound is super low quality.
Summary: Bought this release day as my girlfriend is a HUGE TMNT fan. We played Out of the Shadows and for all its faults we had a better time playing that buggy mess than we did playing this for the whole TWO HOURS it took to beat the game. Gameplay was too simple. One button was attack, one was jump, and the others did nothing! You can upgrade your attack to add another two button presses, but it's still the same button!
Summary: I have played every tmnt game to date and this is by far the worst, the graphics are ps2 level and the combat it clunky repetitive and slow, the dialogue is mostly irrelevant to what is going on and the other turtles unless being played by human players just stand there. I wasn't expecting an Arkham City quality game but this is pretty bad for 39.99. If you want a good turtle game download the old arcade game or even the last movie based game wasn't this lame.
Buy TMNT: Out of the Shadows on XBLA instead of this

Summary: The combat in the new Xbox Live Arcade game, TMNT Out of the Shadows is straight out of Arkham. So you take simple, responsive controls and add in either a) add some friends in to join the combo, or b) instantly swap to an adjacent buddy to pull off the same cool multiplayer combos yourself.
