I love this game, but I have to give it a thumbs down. Abandoned by both the developer and publisher; is effectively falsely advertising that it has "online" capabilities. It doesn't, and likely never will.

Great for the single player, but do not buy, please. Don't give Activision money for a game they left broken.

This game get's BAD reviews for no reason here on Steam. They say No Co-Op Play... but It DOES have Coop play. However, when the game first came out, you needed to do a bit of troubleshooting to get it to work. Now, Coop Play is in full effect and working correctly. All and all, It's the best Ninja Turtles game to date. Comes with a Throwback Local Coop Arcade mode, a Story mode with internet Coop play, as well as challenge and fighting modes. It's worh the $15... at least it is now, after the bugs we're resolved. :)

This game is really fun. It's a beat em up game that you USED to be able to play. I have no idea what happened to the multiplayer, but developers forgot about the game. So now i have to defeat Mansers anda three-headed robot dog inspired by the cerberus BY MYSELF. I haven't finished the game for that reason. It's IMPOSSIBLE to beat that boss without help. I wouldn't reccomend this game because online co-op is a major factor in beating the game, and they don't support that anymore. Sry Activision.

I played and beat the game before the patch and yes it was buggy and frustrating at times. But if you are a true turtles fan this game is a whole lot of fun and definately worth the $15.

COOP doesn't work. No video options, bad console port. Don't buy unless you want a single player game with no configuration options, limited available resolutions and a camera so tight and close on the characters (with no options to change it) they might as well call it "TMNT the Proctology Exam"

Man, to be honest, I am really on the fence about this game.

First off, it's a TMNT game and it's just done really well. The story and voice actors are good, the combat is fun, the moves are awesome without being unreal, the ninja aspects are integrated well, and the soundtrack is mega rad. A lot of games for franchises can be awful, but it's obvious the makers of this really loved TMNT and really wanted to make something worthy of it.

The con is that the combat can be overly complicated, with no way to really compensate in other areas, such as by having a "pause and issue commands" type function. Health packs are few and far between, and power ups come too slowly for how quickly the enemies improve. There are a ton of moves to learn and memorise, which require expert timing to pull off.

I am not going to finish this game because I just find the combat too frustrating. I'm still listing this as a positive review because it is honestly such a great game except for this one flaw. Besides, it might just be that I've spent too much time in FPS and someone else would take to these controls like a duck to water.

The game is pretty terrible, honestly. Most of the things I thought would make a 4 player TMNT game just weren't there. This is a generic, boring, and repetitive beat-em-up. I'll try to hit the few things that before purchasing made me think "this game is going to rock" and the revelations that led to my disappointment.

1) "The turtle power upgrade system will be really cool". Reality: It's not cool at all. You "level up" (although nowhere I could find is your actual level displayed) and get skill points you can distribute. But instead of getting a certain number of points for each turtle, you get a global number of points to distribute. If you want to switch between the different Turtles (especially in single player) you're going to fail pretty miserably. Also, most "skill tree" unlocks don't seems to do much if anything - there doesn't "feel" like a difference between being low level and high level.

2) "Everything I love about the shows and comic books is here." The developers really pushed this: this game was made for the 30-something Turtles fan. Except, in reality, it's not. Despite having completely different (and sometimes creepy) graphics, all of the characters are exactly the same as they are in the brand new Nickelodeon show. And as if to add insult to injury, they didn't even get the same voice actors from the new show. There isn't much here for the 30-something TMNT fan, especially if you haven't watched the new show.

3) "It will probably have an interesting/epic story". Nope. Seems like it was written for a 5 year old. Seriously, the new show has better plots than this game on a weekly basis. Nothing to see here. My playthrough did last about 4 hours (which is fairly high for a $15 game) but I'd say at least 2 hours of that was grinding away on and endless number of bad guys and/or replaying parts after dying due to their terrible checkpoint system.

4) "I heard about this game over a year ago: the developers have probably had plenty of time to flush out all of the bugs by now." Wrong again. In addition to the AI being (just, in general) terrible, I encountered TONS of bugs. Once while fighting Shredder the first time, one of my AI turtle teammates was standing on his head and they were both spinning in circles wildly without moving. During another boss battle with Kurai at the construction site, the boss got stuck in a part of the map I couldn't access yet and just kept throwing bombs at me, causing me to eventually have to reload from the previous checkpoint about 10 minutes earlier. Finally, the little "mini-game" where the turtles try to hack stuff: at first I thought it was really cool. Donatello hacks things easier than the others, so use him. Until the last level: where even with Donatello's ability, the hacking terminals are literally impossible. Meaning you have to exit out and re-enter the hacking attempt until you find one that can actually be solved. And I don't mean "impossible" like "Oh man, that's really hard, I'd never be able to figure that out!" I mean "impossible" like "there is literally no way this can be accomplished". I wish I had a screenshot handy because it's hard to explain. Anyway, it required a fair bit of loading/reloading on some of the hacking terminals.

Well that about sums it up. I can't really think of any redeeming qualities this game has. Besides maybe that a lot of the achievements were really easy to get. But even that becomes like the chore that drives you to play longer when you really just want to give up on it.

Sorry for the long review. If you're a huge TMNT fan and have watched the new cartoon (like me) I guess I could see picking this up for 75% off and being okay with it. Don't pay full price though, unless you want to be disappointed.

This game is AWESOME and people that gave it a bad review did so for the wrong ♥♥♥♥ing reasons.
It is one of the BEST games i have ever played, its not broken- it just a little short, thats the only throwback.
ITS A TMNT GAME- DONT PLAY IT ALONE! Its a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ TMNT game with SPLITSCREEN so why would you even bother=?
I have completed the story and arcade modes many times with my friends, the only REAL bad thing about this game is that there is no follow up title.

Community patch fixes camera issues- so there is no point in pretending like this game is broken. IT IS NOT.

Its one of the most enjoyable games i have EVER played, the team action is on point, the Turtles are as well, soundtrack kills and the fighting- which is surprisingly layered for every Turtle, as well as the parcour/capoera movements just feel right.
Its even got some spare stealth elements.

Must have for Turtle Fans.

(If you dont like this game- your soul is broken)

I was hoping to play this game as a co op with my husband. I can't get it to work, however, without downloading extra software to trick it into thinking that I'm playing on a console. Not what I had hoped for a game that I paid a fair amount for.

If you are playing single-player by yourself, then it is probably fine. The graphics are great, the gameplay seems great, but I didn't play it very much since I like playing games with friends and family.

Please fix the co-op issue! There are many games out there that this one has to compete with. I think it would be in the developer's best interest to make it so that you don't have to download extra software, or at least include the software in the game itself. Thank you.

Played for 30min and was really disapointed. Cannot change key bindings, controls are awkward, combat is awkward and all of that I would push through and suffer with to play the game. But the game breaker is the glitches. Animations getting stuck, character stuck in movement and can't stop moving, graphical glitches... and generally not fun.

This is actually a pretty cool TMNT game. Even without online it is a good game and worth playing. Dont listen to the negative reviews. I waited for a sale because of the bad reviews and found out they are overexagerating or are just salty about the online servers going offline. Its a good game, buy it.
