For years, fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) have been itching to get their hands on a qualified successor to the gaming franchise, but TMNT: Out of the Shadows promises more than it can handle. Although the easiest route taken would just be playing on the sense of nostalgia, TMNT: Out of the Shadows delivers a thoughtful experience that has plenty of depth. Developer Red Fly Studio set out to create what they felt is a Ninja Turtle experience that resounds with its audience both of the generation growing up with the current Nickelodeon TMNT show, and the audience that grew up on the comics/animated series/live-action movies decades back. Did they achieve this goal? I can say it was accomplished, but it comes bundled with a bit of tough love.
