Like most people around their 30s today, I was a huge fan (and when I mean huge, man I mean ginormous) of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I has a lot of TMNT toys, watched the cartoons, movies, had gadgets of them, some people may actually call it insane.
But one of the things I liked the very most, was the TMNT video game I owned. Being able to play as a turtle in their constant struggle against evil. As the years past and I got older I, needless to say, kept following the TMNT gaming franchise. And I must say that not all too many great TMNT video games have been released since the “Hyperstone Heist“.
With the coming of the new TMNT franchise (yet another TMNT reboot, and there have been an few) I was thrilled to hear that also a new videogame was going to be release. TMNT: out of the shadows. When I saw the gameplay footage for the first time I knew for sure: This game was going to be different.
And man was I right, TMNT OOTS takes you back to how it all began, the four turtles fighting in NY city against mutants, the Foot and the Shredder. The turtle models in this game look amazing, very uhm.. lifelike? And they each have their specific features, as other games only showed the turtles to be different in the color of bandana they wear this game really gives each turtle a different character.
Now for a little about the game itself. It is a brawler, meaning that the turtles will be facing massive amounts of enemies (like in the cartoons), which can be defeated by using combos, special actions and turtle finishers! One of the coolest features of this game is that it can be played in a 4-player coop game. There is a very easy opt-in/opt-out system which allows you to play with other players online.
This game is going to thrill TMNT fans around their 30s. This is because this game was made because of the TMNT reboot, but it features a lot of aspects from the orginal TMNT franchise (comics, cartoons, etc). It will be fun for kids new to TMNT but it will be even more fun for the older fans since they will have a better understanding of all the references that are made!
This game is available for PC, PS3 and XBOX, so you don’t have any excuse not to play this game! It’s not even all that expensive. Do note that this game is available for download only, see you don’t even have to get out of your seat to be able to enjoy this new turtles game!
As a finisher, allow me to show you the release trailer. Now go and play this game! Cowabunga dudes and dudettes!
