TMNT Cool game

Kids would think some characters are funny. You can do back flips and cool moves. There are location bombs and you fight some guys with guns. Even though it had a lot of violence it was fun figuring out how to defeat different foes. I think the game is really cool. Some of the puzzls are kind of hard, so I don't think kids younger than 9 can do them. Other than that, the game is ok.

Great messages
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):

Although Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Leonardo have the potential to be a great action-game team, TMNT is a short and simple game that seems little more than a quickie tie-in to the film. After 16 levels the play gets repetitive and even tedious. Mastering the acrobatics is simple unless the camera angles get bad. Combat is quite easy too -- just shake the remote over and over.

Completing levels with some skill unlocks some Mini games and challenges to increase the game length. But these bonuses are not enough to save TMNT from its mediocrity. It's a shame that a game that features a crime-fighting foursome and pays so much lip service to teamwork feels like such a solitary adventure. TMNT is a good choice for a weekend rental, but only die-hard fans of the wise-cracking heroes will enjoy having it in their collections.
