View Full Version : Turtle Characteristics In The New Game
10-23-2003, 03:18 AM
I just wanted to know from you lucky US people (well actually us unlucky European people) if the turtle's are that different. I was dreading Raph being a slow hulking turtle when I thought he was supposed to be one of (if not) the quickest turtle(s)
So I guess this thread can be used to post the differences you notice in the characters, who your favourite is and why, their attacks and stuff... I'd like to hear since we won't have the game for a while here in England (unless the PC game comes out quicker :roll: )

From what i've noticed that dontello is the fast one on here. Each have different type of combos and we all know dontello has the longest reach. I havent really noticed any other differences.

ive beaten the game 2 times so far and played a LOT of versus mode against my friends. here's what i think of the turtles
- mikey has Excellent speed, but has the worst reach. his combos dont have very many circular attacks so he's average in crowd control. his jump attack is the best one against bosses. he does decent damage. he seems like a specialty character - for people who love flashy moves and lotsa combo hits. oh yeah, and he's the best boss killer (large bosses) cuz of his jump attack. 8/10
-don ha sthe best reach obviously. average speed. and above average damage. his weak,strong dizzy combo is simply amazing and pretty much makes up for his lack of circular attacks in his other combos (cept for his weakX5). he doesnt seem to have any weaknesses at all. well, his dash attck and his WWS and WWWS combos arent good for crowd control becuz the last hits are too linear. but seriously, his W,S combo is just too darn good and makes up for anything. 9/10
- raph has great speed but poor reach , like mikey. on the other hand, he deals the most damage. he's a specialty character like mikey - harder to use than leo and don but you'll look better doing it. his combos aren't that great for crowd control. lotsa linear combos , and his last combo attacks (WS, WWWS) come out slower than others BUT he packs a bigger punch. and he seems to be The best against single or fewer enemies. his WWW combo juggles at the end, so i usually killed most enemies with juggles. he needs to separate enemies before taking them on. but i think he's the best turtle for versus mode. 8/10
-leo is my fave. he has great reach, good speed, good dmage, But most importantly has Circular attacks galore. WWS and WWWS are just too good. Best crowd control combos in the game. like don, leo has no weaknesses, cept maybe his jump attack which isnt that bad actually. best turtle to beat the game with imo. his combos are made for taking out groups without worrying about getting hit in the back or such (like with mike or raph) 10/10
as for the versus characters-
casey - this guy is meant for story mode since his WWWWW combo is great - its like 5 circular swings thats great against crowds. on the Other hand, everything else he has arent that good (baaad reach). but he has his Wx5 combo which rocks. for versus mode he's pretty bad. i was dashing all around him and stunning, juggling the heck outta him cuz his Wx5 combo is his only redeeming factor
splinter - he's almost exactly like raph. his WWW juggles at the end. great for single enemies (or veruss mode) like raph is
turtlebot - he emulates one of the four turtles. looks really cool though
shredder - lol if someone loses with him in versus mode, then.. :roll: . first of all, his jump attack is simply overkill. you can just hop around like a bunny while doing his spinning jump attack over and over and you'll be invincible. he has greaaat reach (don-like reach). he has great speed. and he has ground fireballs that take up half the screen (that takes off a bit of your life too)... and a cool looking torpedo move (like m.bison from street fighter or cervantes from s.calibur) (which is really hard to connect actually cuz shredcder's WWWW juggles at the end, leaving the torpedo hitless), but it's really his jump attack that is overkill.
hun - havent tried him yet. you get him from mikey's story mode and i havent beaten his yet.
oroku - he's probably the last guy you get (and hamato yoshi i heard)
