The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles first hit the scene in 1984 and it has been a while since they came out with something new. However, that has been rectified with this game and it is clear that the creators have not simply been sitting back and taking things easy.

Players will also have the chance to interact with other popular characters such as April O’Neal, Casey Jones, Shredder and Baxter Stockman. As you progress you can unlock some of the character art from the cartoon series, which brings yet more nostalgia with it.
Story mode allows players to simply sit back and watch the action unfold if they want, while people who simply want to get on with the action can skip this section if they prefer. Unfortunately, while there are plenty of baddies to fight, the mousers are strangely missing from this instalment of the franchise.
Despite the fact that you are given a large collection of weapons to choose from, many of these weapons such as the shrunken seem to do very little damage. It is worth taking a little time to learn the weapons so you can make the most impact when you go into battle.
A two player mode is also available, allowing best buds the chance to play against each other. Gamers can also play against the computer if they choose, which can be as easy or as challenging as you wish depending on the difficulty setting that you select.
