I didn't expect to like this game at all. I admit. I expected this game to instantly become a stinker. I was surprised. I really appreciated what was done with this game.
This game provides the challenge aspect provided in Smash Bros. Melee and none of the over the top item use that is spammed in Brawl.
If you've understood what I said in that last sentance and your with me now good.
First off this game has a very limited amount of characters. 16. Four of which nobody will care about and one who everyone thinks is Krang with a new outfit.
Where this game lacks in content makes up for in gameplay. Characters will bounce from one side of the screen to the other comboing in the air to the floor and then getting gobbled up by a shark.
This game is a frantic fest when played with friends and is an absolute blast.
Problem is that this fun stature isn't provided when played single player. Its a snooze. The arcade mode is the mode you unlock a large majority of the characters and the best part is that the cutscenes are done in the original comic book art style, other than that its pretty forgettable.
It's worth a weekend rent. If your a die hard turtles fan then your going to be wishing there was Bebop and Rocksteady, The Rat King, Baxter Stockman. Your classic villians aren't here and you'll be dissapointed that they are gone. On the other hand if you can look past all that you have a very solid game that can be picked and played easily.

I knew this game with a Super Smash Bros. Brawl knock off before I even rented it, but I had to try it anyway. The game itself is not that bad, but lacking in content. I didn't keep it very long because of it. Only has a few characters to work with from the start, and while I didn't play much further into the game to see if there were more to unlock, it looked like there was only 1 more spot for an unlockable character. I mainly got it because it was Ninja Turtles and a fighting game, I loved the Ninja Turtles fighting game they had back on the Super Nintendo, so I just wanted to compare... and that one was still much better. Overall though, for a budget title, it is a decent game.
I was soo excited to play this game because I thought that it would be exactly like Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I was severely wrong. Well, it is a versus game the only mode you can play by yourself is story mode which is awful. Mission mode is ok. Otherwise I can't tell you how the other modes are because you need at least 3 people to play. There is really not much else to this game. I only gave it a 4 because A) I like teenage mutant ninja turtles. Always have. B) I like versus games. That's about it.
