Ninja Turtles Out Of The Shadows is the best Ninja Turtles game I have ever played. Why is this the best Ninja Turtles game I have ever played? It’s the best because it took me back to when I was a kid playing the game for the very first time. Not many games that come out today can make me feel that way. This game caters to old school Ninja Turtles fans like me.
Each turtle has their own unique psychical appearance. Ralph is the brute of the group so he’s very muscular, Leo is average and doesn’t seem to have a weakness, Donatello is very skinny because he spends most of his time on computers, and Mikey is the runt because he’s very tiny but fast as hell. If you examine each turtle you’ll also see distinctive characteristics on their shells. I love the attention to detail that the developers put into each turtle. The gameplay in this game is the best i’ve ever played in a Ninja Turtle game. You can play this game three different ways. You can rush in and beat everyone to death. You can sneak around and take them all out silently or you can counter every attack they throw at you with brutal counterattacks. I mixed and matched all of them to have a very satisfying playthrough with my wife.
The soundtrack in this game is a little annoying to be honest so I turned it off. I enjoyed the game a lot more after the music stopped playing and i was able to concentrate on the game instead of the loud music playing in the background. The story is like an average everyday Ninja Turtle episode and I actually enjoyed it. April gets captured by Shredder and the turtles have to save the day. It’s simple but it works with this game.
Ninja Turtles Out Of The Shadows has multiple modes for you to enjoy playing through. There’s your story mode, survival mode, and an arcade mode. Survival mode is exactly how it sounds… you survive against waves of enemies with a single turtle to test your skills. Arcade mode is wear the game really shines. You play the game the old school way. You and three other people can play through stage after stage of non stop action with the Ninja Turtles just like the old days.
To make things even better you can even level up your turtles and choose from different abilities that they’ll have. You can take up your stats or give them access to new combos to perform in battle. You also get access to a secondary weapon. Leo can combine his two swords into on double bladed sword that he throw like a boomerang at his enemies. Ralph gets two iron knuckles so he can get up close and personal with everyone, Donnie gets the gravity glove and can temporarily suspend a target in midair, and Mikey attaches a chain to his weapon with a blade at the end and does much more damage.
There are some glitches in the game that prevented my wife and I from playing it. Sometimes when you go into a corner you’ll get stuck and can’t move. You’ll even glitch across the stage and land right in front of an enemy and get jumped while the other turtles try and catch up. Other than that we had a blast playing this and I highly recommend this game to Ninja Turtles fans. My final verdict for Ninja Turtles is a very high 8/10. This game is awesome and if you’re a Ninja Turtles fan then it needs to be in your gaming library. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.
