Playable sidescroller/beat them up with the TMNT cast!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Arcade Game is a sidescroller action game, that is all about action in the well known city invaded by other mutants, Dr. Brain and all the others. However, this is a very mild sidescroller, never going out of its way to impress with a whole lot. The background are repetitive, the action is also very repetitive and the ins and outs of the game will be pretty much delivered to you in full by the time you're done with the first few missions. But, nonetheless, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Arcade Game plays really well, controls wise, and even in spite of the fact that the action and the levels are almost the same in principle, all the way through, you still get a kick out of the game, without issues. Now, quality wise, the graphics are alright, sort of well polished DOS 8bit in style, and so you get a whole lot out of it. So, if you are a fan of the animated series, of the turtles per se, or the setting this can be a cool, of lite journey; else you've also got Manhattan Project, the game that will come after this one was released, that takes the turtles and the action to the next place. So, go ahead, have it in your collection, TMNT will definitely not disappoint.
