tmnt release date ps4.jpg

After the enjoyable jaunt that is Transformers: Devastation, we had reasonably high hopes for Platinum Games' take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but it's not looking good for the mean green fighting machines. There are a few reviews dotted around the web right now, and the majority of them aren't exactly positive. So, while we scribble away on our own write-up, take a look at what other sites have been saying before excitedly opening up the nearest manhole cover.

IGN - 4.9/10

Short, bland, and repetitive, TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan isn't worth playing for its few good gags.

Polygon - 3/10

After a six-hour campaign that manages to be both mind-numbingly dull and insultingly repetitive, I'm sad to report that Mutants in Manhattan is made by the Platinum that brought us The Legend of Korra.

May God have mercy on us all.

Destructoid - 4.5/10

It does its best to spread little content as far as it can possibly go. It's a very short game that still manages to be far too long. The anchovies on the pizza is that it doesn't even necessarily succeed where Platinum Games usually excels. Cowabummer.

USGamer - 2.5/5

The Platinum spark exists in Mutants in Manhattan, which is why it's tragic the developers couldn't spend the same resources they would on original IP like Bayonetta. As licensed games go, you could do much worse, but this TMNT outing feels like a collection of good ideas in need of a second pass.
