Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has a new video game release, this time developed by Platinum Games. For most of it’s run Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan works, but it’s too short and repetitive to be enjoyed for long.

THE GOOD: The good thing about Mutants in Manhattan is that the Platinum Games gameplay we know and love is present, and works well for the Turtles.  The interchangeable moves and specials are fun to use, and pretty to look at. There’s some genuine TMNT humor present throughout the story as well.

Turtle Power dudes!

THE BAD: Mutants in Manhattan is unfortunately short and very repetitive. You can knock it out in about five or so hours maximum, and there isn’t much replay value once you’ve finished the thirteen-ish chapters.

Great characters and a decent story, but Mutants in Manhattan falls short of it's potential.

OVERALL THOUGHTS: While a valiant effort Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles falls short of it’s full potential, due to lack of time, repetitiveness, and an extremely easy difficulty. At the very least the AI for the Turtles are fairly solid, the story is great for what it is, and the TMNT humor we know and love is there. They hint at the potential of a sequel, so hopefully Platinum gets another go with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and gives us the game we really want.
