This game is a trainwreck on wheels but its still a fun short ride for what it is. The game is an old school button masher mostly just hit the x button for attack, there is a kick button but its not needed. The game is low budget and the devs did a great job with what little it seems like they had budget wise to work with. They opted out of cut scenes using a comic panel style to spend more time and money on the game itself. The gameplay is fun and easy for anyone to play, just hit everything in sight. The action stays fresh because you can switch turtles to use their different weapons.

Most of the game is very dark and some parts are just entirely pitch black or unfinished maybe? The camera is zoomed in real close and for some reason seems to point down alot making it one of those games where you fight the camera. The combat is like a cheap version of Batman but somehow balanced very well. In batman the combat is fluid while in this its stunted leaving your character swinging weapons in the air while facing an enemy. The game is real short almost to the point of feeling like its just an episode which would be great if they make more but it seems like the game is just left to rot even though people worked hard on it. All the turtles look sorta strange with elongated limbs and necks, so does April which must be some artistic choice like with Splinter where he looks more like a werewolf than a rat.

Even with all those negatives the game is still a fun beat em up brawler that anyone can pick up and play anytime without complex controls to master which is great and satisfying to play. Lots of fun dialog makes all those things you should hate about the game fade into the background somehow. Its really true magic to play a game riddled with normally gamebreaking mechanics and yet still have fun doing it.

Out of all the recent TMNT games this is probably the best one. I still think the retro Ninja Turtle arcade games are the best overall. Out of the Shadows may not be the best super hero game out there but still the best recent TMNT game. It's not cartoony and has good graphics. The Turtles have a realistic look to them but don't confuse them with the childhood-destroying spawns that Michael Bay produced. (Thank goodness he didn't make this game!) This game isn't based on any movies and released before the new movie. This version of the Turtles is more like the new Nickelodeon version, just more realistic. The fighting techniques and combos are good and even on solo the other Turtles will fight along with you and they actually help. You can also select different Turtles anytime you want, you don't have to wait to die to select. The voice acting is good too and stays faithful to the classic voices.

I'd say my only complaints about this game is the camera views. You can control the camera with the right joystick (if playing on Xbox controller) but the camera stays so close to the Turtle you're playing it can sometimes get annoying. Also the camera sometimes likes to hide behind part of the environment like a support beam or pole. It doesn't make it unplayable but you sometimes have to really be on that right joystick to move it.

Pros
Music
Fighting
Controls
Graphics (not cartoony)*
Voice acting
Ability to select Turtles at will
Multiplayer
Training dojo in Sewer - This is good in case you forget how to fight and need to remember the controls.

Cons
Camera - isn't terrible but sometimes needs corrected by player. Also sometimes too close to the Turtle your playing, no way to zoom out.
Chapter 3 boss - The game is very enjoyable up to this point. This boss fight is challenging. Don't expect to beat this fight the first time.

*The Ninja Turtles in this game is based on the Nickelodeon cartoon. They seem to have the same characteristics but more realistic graphics.

This is probably the best Ninja Turtles game to date, and its a shame how much crap it has gotten since its release. Lets get this out of the way:

YES. IT IS BUGGY AS HELL.

But these are minor bugs, the only thing that may bother some is the VERY close camera, which isnt that big of a deal for such a linear short game. You wont be looking around to explore anyway. This game is a lot of fun, you dont need online coop because the AI is fun to play with. You go through missions with comic book style cutscenes, exciting Team fights in the same style as Arkham Asylum, and listen to Michaelangelo talk about his love for pizza and quirky thoughts. The game is exciting, offers a classic style arcade mode, and generally makes you feel like your one of the turtles. Aside from fixing the bugs, I wouldnt change anything about this game. I highly recommend picking this up, it's fun and well worth it.

If your a true turtle fan, this is the best game by far they have made for it, in my opinion.
The graphics, game play and controls are awesome and right on. The Music is a lot of fun too as well.
I highly recommend this game certainly for the current price.
A good challenge that progressivly gets harder as the game goes on.
Enjoy!!! =)

While there are some good positives to this game, I have to say skip it. I'm going to get down to the point of what bothers me most about this game instead, it's not a lack of online multiplayer or anything like that, I can get past the new turtle image and some of the constant turtle chatter at times. It's the control system that really puts this game to a loss for me, the controls are terrible. I don't know why anyone thinks the controls are good as I've seen some posts say. So here I go pointing out why I hate the controls.

-For the target market which ranges from the youth of today to the youth of Atari and SNES the controls are far more complicated than they should be. (Think similarly to Soul Calibur or any other "Fighting" game with a lot of combos & linkages. For an example there are 8 different counter combos.)

-The controls are clunky and ill designed, particularly with the poor/slow camera control & follow. Even the D-Pad and Control Sticks are thrown into combo orders while still requiring direction specific input. Yet the camera is often so out of place that it gets in the way. I'll also add that the camera is controlled by the right control stick which is also used for some combos.

This game would have been far better and in more keeping with the old ninja turtles games if they had gone with a control scheme similar to Prince of Persia Sands of Time rather than those of the sequal or any fighting game.
