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).
For the wii - TMNT. Those of you back in the 80's can remember this successful cartoon containing the names of some of the most prominent artists throughout history. This game is an interesting attempt at making the TMNT franchise spring into the 21st century. Unfortunately it has failed. The graphics are beautiful and well done. That is about the only thing this game has going for it. The Wii struggles to bring across a complicated move system onto its controllers. The complicated combat system, sometimes finds you striking at completely the opposite direction of an attacking enemy. There are extremely difficult levels because of this. NOT ALL OF THE TURTLES ARE CREATED EQUAL TOO. 3 of the 4 turtles are normal... 1 is completely different looking as if the game developers rushed the programmers to get the game out before it was ready. Over all if you are targeting youngsters...this is a failed attempt.
