    That game is f***ing horrible! Anyone seen the AVGN's review of that game? And I tried the game. It sucked arse.:ciappa:

    And why does it cost 600 points? It's not worth 1 point.
    If any TMNT game should be on the VC, it should be TMNT 2. That game was fun.

    Personally, I liked the Turtles game. Back in the day, I spent ages on it.

    Very challenging.

    Also one of the first NES games that I played, so it brings back memories for me.

    What are you talking about? As far as NES games games go, this was a pretty good platformer. Besides, there are far worse games on VC than this.

    Turtles 1 was awful. However if you knew the layout and where to go it wasn't that bad. Today we have FAQs. But back then we didn't, and I can see why the Angry Nerd was so pissed. The game was BS hard to figure out without FAQs.

    I got stuck on that jump section too. The whole game is like that jump section. You know which one if you saw the review video.

    Zapasant if the VC releases were based on sales there would be no turbografx games. But no it was an average game back then, and now after we've seen turtles 2 and 3 it's just overall nothing special. However they released it to bank off the film TMNT that came out, and the extra dollar was because of extra licensing

    Because it is the 6th best selling NES game of all time.

    Right behind Zelda II with 4 million copies sold.

    I liked the game up until the swimming level with the electro walls and disarming the bombs. The hours of frustration I remember from that level will make it so I will not pay money to have that game.

    Now the TMNT Arcade clone that hit the NES i'll buy in a heart beat.

    If you didn't buy and play this game new in 1989 you shouldn't be allowed to criticize it.

    Hehe. I remember my cousin had it and I could never get passed that level, so I gave it to her and she'd do it for me.

    Years later, I tried it again and it seemed so much simpler...

    ...Probably because I didn't suck at computer games anymore...

    What probably made TMNT 1 so awful was TMNT 2, and every turtle game past it until Turtles in Time was 100x better. If you played the first one, then part two came out at the arcades. You would literally go back and bash in the first one with a hammer. 2 through Turtles in Time were dramatically better games. It's sad to see Ubisoft rape the series with their recent installment (One of the super moves is farting).
