Those heroes in a halfshell are back for their second adventure on the GameBoy. T.M.N.T. 2: Back from the Sewers continues the series with traditional Turtles action. Choose your turtle and head off to save April O'Neil from the clutches of Shredder. Make your way through the detailed landscapes and pick up some pizza power ups along the way. Watch out for Bebop and Rocksteady!
This game has great side-scrolling action, spectacular graphics, good sound and play mechanics that, while familiar, are executed with sterling quality. Guide the turtles against their mortal enemy, take on the Bosses under Shredder and collect pizza power along the way. Cowabunga!
There's one basic law to sequels. In order to be a hit, the sequel should be better than the original. In the turtle's case the sequel just doesn't have the challenge and excitement found in the first - kind of like the 2 turtle movies. It is a better than average cart but not a great cart.
Cowajunka! If I were a turtle I'd be hiding in my shell right now. The graphics and animation are cheesy and the game play is a big step down from the first Turtles GB cart. The music and sound effects are very good, but cool tunes do not make a good game. Sorry Splinter.
Game Boy games are bad enough thanks to the terrible graphics limitations, but why make a game that exploits this crippling facet of the big N's portable machine? TMNT 2 is a farce through and through, and I wouldn't recommend it for anything. Nothing excites me here.
