[Out Today] TMNT The Movie: The Game [NSF56K!]

edited March 2007 in Games and Technology
Well, we have a thread on the recently-released TMNT: Arcade for the Live Arcade, and while that's trickled down into movie talk, I though thought it'd be nice to have an actual Movie Game thread, so here we go!

All shamelessly taken from Wikipedia:
TMNT is a single player action/adventure multi-platform video game starring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The game is expected to be released for the Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 2, and Nintendo GameCube, PSP and DS video game consoles, as well as for the PC on March 20, 2007. The game's release will coincide with the release of the movie of the same name.

The gameplay in TMNT will feature many acrobatic segments in the vein of another Ubisoft game series, Prince of Persia. UbiSoft has stated the focus within the game "will be on the four turtle brothers finding out their differences and getting through family problems." They also have said that TMNT "will feature mostly Single-Player campaigns for each brother."

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Publisher: Ubisoft
Engine: JADE engine (Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones engine)
Release Date: March 20th, 2007
Genre: Action/Adventure
Mode: Single player
Platform: Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 2, GameCube, PC, PSP, DS
Media: Dual-Layer DVD
Input: Gamepad, Wii Remote

Which version do you plan on getting? I was originally shooting for the PSP one, considering it'd be like the console releases, however, I've recently found out that design-wise it's a port of the DS game. So, it seems like I'll be going with the GBA version. I need something new to play on my GBA micro anyway.

    If I buy one it'll be the PS2 version, as thats the only system I own.

    Are they still using the whole 'footclan is robots', 'shredder is an alien in a robot suit', 'OMG lost civilizations in the sewers' stuff from the recent cartoon show or did they change back to the movie/90s cartoon mythos?

    Similar to Supeman Returns, it's a quasi-sequel from the films of the 90s.

    You got 2 things wrong here. First off, the 90's cartoon is the only mythos to use the "footclan is robots" thing. Secondly, they can't change back to the "movie/90s cartoon mythos" because those two mythos are totally separate from each other. Actually, the new cartoon is closer to the movies than the old one.

    Are those 3d screenshots the best quality possible for the next-gen versions? Hrm... They could have put in some normal-mapping or something... to replicate the textures and lighting seen in the CGI movie... yeesh. Kinda disappointing.

    Were they really humans in the original comics?

    I distinctly remember a panel from an early comic I had where one of the turtles hit a foot soldier and then a big CLANK thing came up. Then Leo said "CLANK? They're robots?" and they ripped them apart.

    Granted, I was born in '87, so it probably wasn't the original comic that I was reading.

    Was it in color? If so, no, it was the Archie comic. The Archie comic was a little less mature and had its own continuity/cast of characters.

    You're thinking of the Archie comic (not the original 1984 Mirage series), which began based off of the 1987 cartoon.

    The Foot clan in the original comic were very much human, and the Turtles would cut them up and they would bleed.

    Yes, that's the original comic. Notice how the new TV series has an episode that follows it. Also notice that the turtles in the new movie look closer to that than the turtles in the 80's show.

    I'm very sure you were, in fact, reading a coloring book. I suggest, because I have the coloring book and that very same scenario happened. Leo cut them in half right down the middle.

    Talking about the games should be secondary! Every thread about Ninja Turtles must become a general Ninja Turtles discussion thread! If you limit discussion to just the games, you miss out on so much nerdom and information about the franchise you never knew. I am interested on the controls for the Wii version though. I'll probably rent the game if it's good. I am a complete whore for the series besides the obvious dreck like Next Mutation and Flash Forward. I swear Flash Forward is like the New Adventures of He-Man to the ninja turtle fans. It's a kick to the teeth.

    Hey so speaking of the cartoon, I just saw the first episode of the Ninja Tribunal arc for the new cartoon. It was pretty awesome. But uhhhhhhh can anyone refresh me on the finale for season 4? I kind of forgot most of what happened and it may make things clearer like on why the Tribunal has an empty seat. I think they said why but I can't quite remember.

    Note that the style changes in the next couple of issues and is more like the cartoon show... I'm not stating any preference on that, I just think it's a bit weird. Did the new comic style come before or after the cartoon, I wonder? Eh I'm too lazy to figure it out.

    Taken from the other thread I posted in (much more relevent here):

    "The new 360 game is all sorts of awesome. Sort of like Prince of Persia meets Crash Bandicoot. It's very much on rails. The fighting system is very fun, (again like prince of persia).

    Although it does seem very simplistic. The turtles all seem to fight pretty much the same, just with different animations for the weapons. Keep hitting B for sword attack (Hold at end of combo to do some kind of spinny weapon thing. Raph throws his Sai's, Don spins on his stick, Leo does a move where his swords kind of levitate around his body), hit Y for melee (kick attack) which works in the same fashion as the weapons.

    Holding down B on it's own does a charge attack, let go and aim towards bad guys and you do a dash attack similar in style to the first POP's mega pause-time-and-slash move.

    The jumping attack is cool. Leap in the air, press attack, it goes all slomo and you jump down and pound the ground, not doing much damage to enemies but knocking them flying.

    There's also an "anger" meter, after killing so many people it fills up and everything goes in to slomo. Not sure if it was just Raph but in this mode I could press X and it did a funky POP style throw-out-arms-and-knock-down-and-kill-bad-guys-in-area move. Like the first offensive move you get in Sands of Time.

    Graphics themselves are mediocre, like a hi-res Xbox game. Swinging around etc is fun but glitchy, I landed under the floor a couple of times on Donatello's first level and glitched through the walls occasionally.

    Other impressions: Don't want to spoil the plot or anything, but the first mission is a training mission, just to get you used to controls, with splinter narrating. Up to stage 4 and it was pretty easy thus far and the levels are ten minutes or under easily.

    Anyway, definitely good fun!"

    And with regard to coop:

    "It doesn't have it. It uses a mechanic where you can swap between the turtles at anytime to use each of their abilities. You start the stage with only Leo, the more flips you do, fights you win or stunts you pull off builds up the meter to add Mike. When you max the meter out, Mike joins you and you can flip to him at any time by hitting X (You do a funny ninja spin and characters swap). Then the bar builds up to add Don and then Raph.

    It wouldn't work as coop, it's too on rails and the team aspect is fairly integrated in to the one player. For example if you're jumping a gap that's too long you hit X and one of your buds swings in, grabs you and chucks you further. You can do other group moves by holding down X mid fight. I won't let slip the moves as they're pretty fun to see for the first time! "

    Some specials are pulled off by holding block mid fight, like climbing a wall with Raph's Sais or using Mikey's Nunchucks to slow his descent (He actually whistles a tune whilst airborn).

    So...there you go. Definitely worth a play.
