Major Disappointment

First off i am a die hard turtles fan and have been since the turtles came out in the 80's. Second I loved all 3 video games of super smash bros and the thought of combining the two to make a video game got me really excited, but sad to say i was severely disappointed.

Gameplay: Where do i start with this? Well lets see, the character selections, too few. There are ONLY 11 and it has none of the classic villains except for shredder. All the characters for the most part have the same exact attacks except for like 1 or 2 different ones. They all have the same punches, kicks, throws, jump attacks and off the wall dive attacks. Splinter, donatello and casey jones even have the same weapon attacks. April and leonardo also have some of the same weapon attacks. It also bugs me that casey jones has a golf bag full of different weapons on his back and you only get to use the hockey stick. None of the characters have any SPECIAL attacks. The items are all useless, extremely weak, and unentertaining. The bomb is decent, the proximity mines blow up on there own after 5 secs if no one walks near it. shurikens do practically no damage and the stunning ones stun you for like 1 second, not nearly enough time for some one to run up and hit you since 90% of the characters have no ranged attacks. The levels are small and too few to choose from. The only decent level is the one where you can get eaten by a shark. The cutscenes look like demo story board sketches that the developers show their superiors. The mini games are boring and repetitive. This game is even boring when you play it with friends. I have played this game with 6 people other then myself, aging from 16-31 and we all hated it.

Final note: This game is a boring, repetitive, unprepared, low budget version of Super smash brothers. That puts the Turtles franchise to shame. The only reason i gave this game a 3 is because i would feel bad giving something that has the turtles in it anything lower then a 3.

OK,so I heard this game is like SSBB,wrong!I thought
this looked cool an rented it.The items are not useful,the fighting style
is messed up!Only 11 fighters,no special attacks,no nothing!After 15 minutes I was sick of it.I may not be a TMNT fan,but that sucked!
If you like the looks of this game you can get it,but I would not get it
if you hate TMNT or annoying battles!I liked TMNT on the NES better than this game. If they make another game like this one,or a second
one,don't get them.

This game was just like SSBB (Super Smash Brothers Brawl) but with less characters. I beat this game in two days and unlocked everything and got all of the action figures. This game has great replay value but I don't like to things about it. One is there isn't enough characters and the maps are really fun until you play them more that 3 times. I would give this a 6 out of 10 because it has more ups then downs.

(If you can go online then I would give this a 7)
