“ Genre: Action „
Turtles in a Half Shell come to the small screen. This version for the Nintendo DS offers some real action packed fun. Rated 12+ and offering two player multi-card wireless play [multi-card means that all players need a copy of the game).
This is a fantastic little game, which I managed to pick up for my son at the bargain price of £6.99 pre-owned at Game. It features all of the turtles who have to jump, swing, and battle there way through stages of enemies. The control method is very easy and my son mastered it. For myself it turned into one of those buttton-bashing affairs. Once mastered though it looks very enjoyable, getting progressively difficult.
Each of the turtles have their own unique style (or special moves) which makes it interesting to replay levels as a different turtle. The graphics are really detailed and accurately coloured. The sound is OK, nothing amazing, just adequate.
It is a shame that you need two copies of the game to play multiplayer, as in my opinion it is not worth paying out another £5 or £6 just to play the two player mode.
All-in-all a good game which should give any youngster at least 4-8 weeks of gameplay.
