"It shouldn't be possible for a team with such fine pedigree to produce an experience this unremarkable."
PlatinumGames is a capable development studio that has produced some of the industry's most intense and memorable games. But no creative force is consistently in top form, a point that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan proves quite... capably.
Over the years, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have appeared in multiple comics, movies and cartoons. They've also starred in a number of well-received video games, dating back to the 8-bit and 16-bit eras. Keeping up with their full history is a bit of a project, and completely unnecessary in order to jump on board here. There are clever little references to catch if you're a long-time fan, but you'll be fine even if you have only a passing familiarity with the license.
