Dunno if anyone else remembers this one, but the only game I can think of that I've literally loathed, within the past five or so years, was TMNT: Smash-up.

I thought it would be like a faster Smashified version of TMNT: Tournament Fighters.

I was wrong.
So horrifyingly wrong...

I haven't been able to give the TMNT series a pass since then.
Which is a huge shame, since I've been a Raphael fanboy since childhood.
IMO, the last truly great Turtles games was TMNT IV: Turtles in Time on the SNES.

I can't remember the name of it, but I played a TMNT game on Gamecube that I really dug. I played it through in one night, but then again I was stoned, so maybe it really did suck.

I agree that many big titles don't get the criticism that they deserve, or get way more attention than they need. It is also difficult for indie developers who are expected to give the standard of a AAA company. That being said, when AAA companies and franchises muck up, everyone knows about it, just look at Assassins Creed Unity or the recent Batman PC problems.
