I really enjoyed this game. The controls had the perfect balance of motion and buttons which was great. The graphics are pretty good for the Wii (a lot better then some games I've seen). The overall game play is good. The fights are a bit easy, unless you are trying to get Ninja status all the time. Even so, I never got anything less then an Excellent rating. At some points in the game I died like 10 times by falling off of something because I was moving too fast and not paying attention to what I should be doing (I know I'm not a very good ninja), but eventually I got it.
I was also very happy that they stuck to the storyline of the movie. I played some movie based games that seemed to have very little to do with the movie.
Overall I was pleased with this game, especially that they brought back the elevator battles (like in the old TMNT games where you would be in an elevator and enemies would come in to fight). The final bosses were a bit difficult until I realized their weakness (after about 20 tries lol).
Our 7 year old son had a blast playing this game, as did we. A friend who played this game on another platform played with our son and said it is much easier to play on the Wii. Just as much fun to watch as it is to play. Might be a bit simple for the 10+ rating, but our family loved this one, and we'll probably end up buying it.

I know quite a few people disagree but i think this game is sweet!! Not many moves, AI is not great, the story is weak and everything is a little cheesy, which is why it rocked. It reminds me of the old turtle games from back in the day, not much thought...just run and fight.
