1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst games I have ever played, 23 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 BattleNexus (GameCube) (Video Game)
I bought this game due to the original arcade game being an unlockable extra. Little did I know of the horror which awaited me....

The combat in this game is terrible. Not only do the inputs feel stilted and laggy, the turtles have no attack range; you have to virtually be touching your enemies to hit them. Worse still is that most standard enemies can send you flying and stun you for 3 seconds at a time. Thankfully on most levels you can simply run past all your enemies on your way to the exit, not bothering with fighting at all!

Platforming is nearly as bad. The camera often zooms out to make it look like you're viewing the action from a low flying aircraft and because of this even the most simple of jumps can be infuriating as trying to judge distance and depth becomes impossible.

Boss battles are similarly rubbish and the vehicle sections are slightly less playable than your average smartphone racing game.

If you can bear to play to stage 9-1 you'll get to unlock the original Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles Arcade Game which is infinitely superior to this.

Hang on though, the developers have even managed to mess this up. How?

You can only control your turtle via d-pad with the analogue stick being unused (did arcade machines have d-pads?!). Pressing R will quit your game, but worst of all they've stripped away the games original soundtrack and speech and replaced it with elevator music! This really does take away from the game and lessens it's enjoyment.

If you're interested in playing the arcade game there must be an easier way of doing so.....
