    The demo for the PC one was fun.

    Yeah, but it annoyed me that it was time limited, but it was good nevertheless.

    We need info on Wii controls. If I'm getting this it's either for PC or Wii, but the PC controls is less than perfect. Hopefully they can be customized in the final game.

    is it odd to anyone else that the GC is being supported for longer than the Xbox...

    Because when someone does a GC game they can easily convert it to a Wii title or just sell it to Wii owners due to the BC. That's tougher to do with an Xbox game as the game may not be BC on the 360.

    Rat Splinter > Human Splinter

    Does this really make a difference? Either he is Hamato Yoshi or he is Yoshi's pet rat trained to fight and act like he did.

    Obviously it makes a difference to someone, since people still think that Human Splinter is the way that it originally was even though every incarnation since the 80's show had it the exact other way.

    Part of it is because the '87 cartoon was incredibly popular, just exploded onto the scene, and propelled the Turtles into the mainstream. So it was really a lot of people's first exposure to TMNT (it was mine, for example).

    Compared to the cartoon the Mirage comic was practically invisible on the radar. Still is, practically: I wish they would just release a TBP series that was actually easy to come by...

    I think, to be fair to some people, that it sounds more plausible for Splinter to be Yoshi, rather than his rat. Either that, or Yoshi was one fucking brilliant pet trainer. I can't even get my dog to stay off the couch, and he trained his pet rat Ninjitsu? And enough of it that it could then pass on 4 different weapon styles to his "sons"? Man, dude should have entered into a pet competition or something, damn.

    Of course, now we're arguing realism and believability in a series where 4 turtles were mutated by green goo. ...I feel dirty... :(

    I'm wondering if the fact that this is by Ubi Montreal is enough for me to presume it's good.

    Everyone seems to think this is like the old TMNT games. Its not like it at all. Yes, there are beat em up sections, but on the whole its much more like Prince of Persia with lots of acrobatic platforming, and that doesnt really work in co-op.

    I played the demo and I enjoyed it. I hope the full game is decent. Just dont go into it expecting it to be Turtles in Time in 3D.

    I'm going to continue this argument, but just because I find it interesting. Yoshi never trained Splinter Ninjitsu, Splinter observed Yoshi's own training, picking it up himself. To me, that makes more sense than Yoshi deciding to live in the sewers instead of seeking medical attention.

    Doh! Right, how the hell could I have forgotten that bit. Then, the counterpoint is... what kind of whacked out rat learns that just by sight. One would have to assume they didn't get higher brain functions until after the mutation.

    Thinking back to the 80's cartoon, I always did find the mutation bit odd. Splinter said they mutated into whatever animal they were in contact last. The turtles into humanoids because it was Yoshi who touched them last. So shouldn't Splinter have mutated into a turtle, overwriting the fact he touched rats?

    Oh well, way off topic at this point. Much love for the sensei. I might give the 360 version a rent, looks like simple fun.

    Game was a blast.

    I say was since I finished it in 4 hours. With all achievements.

    As fun as the game was, I am glad I didnt buy it and instead checked it out first. Not really much in the way of replay, except to perfect my playthrough... which I dont care about.

    All in all, definetely worth playing, but rent it, dont buy it.

    I've cranked in about 3 hours play I reckon, but a lot of that was just spent messing around and not racing through.

    I've just done the:
    running-through-the-sewer-line-to-get-to-that-rich-guys-tower-that-Raph-broke-in-to-earlier level. I would have considered I'd barely scratched the surface of the game, am I wrong?

    Oh and with the tag teaming to get over gaps, did you find for the most of the time you could just get over them with Mikey anyway?

    But yeah, I agree, up to now the game is a blast and if you liked POP you'll probably like this. I found the acrobatic controls a bit more iffy though. Wall running can be a tad hit or miss.

    If i remember right, thats like level 10. There are 16 levels.

    I will say. I am very excited to see the movie after playing the game. It has a fairly decent storyline, and the few cutscenes from the movie were pretty cool.

    ---

    as for the gaps and such...

    I rarely bothered using Mike's helicopter ability unless i was only able to use him. it was faster to use the tag jump.

    I only found like 2-3 places where Don's ability was necessary.

    Raph and Leo's were necessary more.

    my only complaint really is that Raph and Leo pretty much stole the entire game. Don and Mike barely had any gameplay time outside of full team time... while nearly half the game was just Raph or Leo (or just them together).

    It works for the story, but I always was more of a fan of Mike and Don, so it was kind of disappointing not to have them be more useful. (Though Don was my main one for combat, his attacks did a great job when there are a ton of enemies since they almost all sweep in a fairly large arc.)
