ESH | ‘Mutants in Manhattan’ Is a Few Slices Short
Saturday morning cartoons were always such a huge production when I was younger. If you wanted to see your favorite show, you had to wake up early and make sure your butt was planted in front of that TV in time to see them. One show that was always worth wiping the crust out of my eyes early on a Saturday morning was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As such, when I heard that PlatinumGames, who recently released a pretty decent Transformers game, was making a game based on one of my favorite childhood cartoons, I was excited. The question I was faced with after playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan ended up being whether nostalgia is enough to make an otherwise troubled game enjoyable.
