With a faulted fighting system, camera problems and presentation issues, it can't come out of its shell.
Over the years, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have starred in their fair share of video games. However, nothing in recent years has managed to come close to the glorious Konami arcade games, most notably the original TMNT from the 90's. Even the remake of Turtles In Time, Re-Shelled, couldn't hold a candle to the SNES classic.
Redfly Studios was hoping to change that around with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, a game that attempts to blend the multiplayer madness of the arcade releases with a fighting system that has some components in common with the Batman: Arkham games. Unfortunately, too many corners were cut with the game's development, and as a result, you just can't get away from its frustrations.
In Out of the Shadows, the Turtles set out to save April, who's been kidnapped by the dreaded Foot Clan. That means an eventual run-in with villains from the series, including the vile Shredder and the crafty Baxter Stockman. It's a typical story, and one that doesn't take too long to get through – not sure if that's more of a positive or a negative, considering the problems the game has.
