Considering Activision is putting this game out, it's a movie tie-in AND that movie is being directed by Michael Bay, I'm surprised to say, that I think the footage of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game looks really good.
I love TMNT and this game looks really good considering its a download only title. I hope a full blown next gen game is made after this.
The movie is not being directed by Michael Bay, he's working on TF4. He is producing it. Jonathan Liebesman is directing it. But I'd rather neither of them be near this but...I hope for the best.
"Considering Activision is putting this game out, it's a movie tie-in AND that movie is being directed by Michael Bay, I'm surprised to say, that I think the footage of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game looks really good." Ignore the entire section about it being a movie tie-in directed by Michael Bay, because it isn't. The game is based off the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Nickelodeon show. The developers just decided to change the way the Turtles looked in the game. Whoever wrote this article needs to get their facts straight.
Michelangelo is a party dude! ;) Instant buy.
TheStorm, what does that have to do with anything Sandmano said? And better yet, who asked the question to your comment?
Yeah, but it looks good in any case. In my childhood TMNT played a pretty big role. It's pure nostalgia for me now. I am looking forward to this game.
At the risk of getting a napalm strike of hate, I really hate the TMNT cartoon series, compared to the original comic books which was incredible, dark, serious and gritty in tone, the turtles would actually kill people because you know with them being NINJAS and all, the cartoon series all of them for that matter was an absolute cheesy, cornball joke,it was like comparing CSI to Scooby Doo. Heck I'm not on my own on this one I remember reading that the original creators hated the animated series. Seriously read the original comics you'll be amazed by how violent they were.
You mean, Teenage Mutant Arkham Ninja Batman Turtles? :P
I'm ok with that
Aww, the page glitched up as I was commenting and it posted a reply to the wrong comment.
Its Activision so I am immediately skeptical about this game.
Can they still call the movie Teenage Mutant? Its been a long time and the Turtles must be very old now.
Adult Mutant Ninja Turtles maybe.
I hope your joking... lol.
Turtles live a really long time, so they're probably technically still teenagers.
It looks like a fun game but... the Turtles looks terrifying to me 0_0'
agree lol i would still play it because they have unlock able costumes
I really hope they get their Intergalactic Wrestling costumes.
or there cartoon skins
Yeah the design could use some work, their a little too skinny for me...
Yea i think they where going for a realistic art style.There not really skinny but there skin looks wrinkly and if you see one of those giant turtles you'll see there skin is very much close to this
if you actually think about it, their size is more realistic considering they are ninjas. i mean, bruce lee was thin/light, so he could be flexible and nimble. the turtles have always been depicted as hench. like, bodybuilder big. why would they be that big? its more realistic if they have muscle, but not so much size, like bruce lee
They're gigantic mutated turtles and you're talking about them being "realistic" looking?
They look exactly like the curent cartoon running. But still yeah your right, Donnatello's head reminds of the Koopahs from that awful Mario Bros. film.
I was really turned off by how the turtles look... EDIT: Because the transition from loveable 2D cartoon Ninja Turtles to fully blown realistic 3D video game Ninja Turtles was kinda creepy. I had to make it clear
I think it looks like a right proper beat'em up, sort of like an updated version of those classic Turtles games, I like the art style, a bit more rugged like the original comics intended.
well played porkins. The comics were much gritty in appearance and feel and these turtles look much truer to the form that Eastman and Laird had for them lo so many moons ago.
Ahhh the wonders of editing software for Activison studios...make a game look as awesome as you can and then when it comes out it's average at best Seen it before...Deadpool will probably end up with the same fate aswell
I would really like a Dark Turtle game with different story arcs for each Turtle. Shredder is a real Bad @$$ that you fight more than once. Splinter is dead/killed. Some real "ninja" sections. Just something different. Of course Beat em ups are still fun?
Hot dayum! I loved what I saw there. Turtles will always rock.
No offense to anyone liking this .. but to me .. this is NOWHERE as near in quality as the Ninja turtle franchise .. cartoons or games ! and that music was just URGH ! x_X Edit : Checking the linked video,I want a game that represents the turtle charisma and joyful/funny way of handling bad guys,not this so-called "MATURE" take on it ! What's next ? decapitation !?
You do know that the original Turtles comics were pretty dark and gritty right?
im a ninja turtles fan but the turtles look ugly, we need the old ninja turtles look.
It is not a movie tie in, the game comes this year while the film only next year. The game is based on the new tv show of TMNT.
The way they fight where it slows down then speeds up... reminds me of Batman.
No it doesn't. It looks as good as that woeful downloadable Watchmen game. Music effing sucked too- trap / dubstep bullsh!t plaguing the games industry. Should be more cartoony. Cartoony turtles are the only good ones, not real, gritty, edgy, turtles.
I didnt realize it was a downloadable title. Looks promising.
turtles look like crap and the game looks average.
It looks terrible. I remember the days when games based off TMNT was actually good. Even the Turtles in Time remake was terrible and it was better to just go back and play the classic version. This one will flop too.
I'll definitely be getting this.
Looks like it could be a real good platformer. Might be great for some quick action but I bet replayability is in the dumps.
Gonna flop. Maybe a HD version of Turtles in Time would be enough. The boss theme is my mobile ringtone.
Loved that game! Just wish that the original music from the SNES game was an unlockable.
Looks like it's using UE3, if I'm not mistaken.
I have a feeling we just watched the entirety of the gameplay ;)
I missed TMNT badly especially the games. My brother and I played all the time. ^~^ Fun Times!
I don't see anything wrong with the gritty look for the turtles I grew up with the tv shows, comics, and movies. Its about time they moved away from the kiddie vision of the turtles hopefully the story is darker too.
Why??! Why is this so necessary? You've been watching too much Dark Knight, Amazing Spiderman, and Man of Steel. All this is is grown men too ashamed to like the cartoons and wanting something to make them seem mature while indulging in something for kids. The cartoon is good! Just like it and stop worrying about silly masculine expectations.
actually TMNT was originally a MATURE comic... very graphic and dark...
Er no, it was originally a veiled parody of Daredevil and other comics of the time, and the idea of turtles (slow animals, famously) being lightning fast ninjutsu masters was a joke conceived by the original creators. They found it to be a really funny idea. It's the MTV-seque sheen I hate about this trailer too. The hyper-stylised, urban looking splashes and dubstep / trap beats. Such a heap of crap.
this looks real good... it's been a long time coming for a TMNT fix.
It looks like a really pretty "Mash buttons and win!" type of game =/
What's it based on? The comics, the tv series or one of the movies
This looks like an example of .. gameplay > graphics ;)
why did they make their heads so small? it looks fun but the turtles look out of proportion.
