All the 2D TMNT 2k3 and movie games on the GBA and DS were pretty great. They were the best of all the post 2000 TMNT games.

I actually got Mutants In Manhattan for Christmas and just finished it last night, I liked it a lot honestly. Don't really understand why everyone hates it, but then again I'm not that big on video game related stuff anyway.

Most of the criticism I head has to do with the game getting repetitive.

Just watch Vegita playing the game to see what everyone's gripes are

If they really hung the entire property's current viability on that stinker of a movie franchise, then it might just be for the best if TMNT has another time-out. Maybe there'll be a corporate shuffle and someone else with better instincts will get a shot at managing things right.

I'm curious to play "Mutants in Manhattan", but there's no way I'm paying full price for it. Maybe I'll pick it up if it shows up in a pawn shop eventually.

You can literally find it for $20-30 online.

You have no idea how cheap I can find most games for at pawn shops. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns up for half that, in time.

As much as I was disappointed with the two Nick-based games, I'm sad that we didn't get a chance to fight April Derp and Mega Shredder.

Canada must be a magical land if you can find anything for a system within the last two generations that isn't absolute garbage or one of those yearly revision sports titles.

Haha, totally!

I would have loved a Season 4 inspired game with space adventures!

Amazon has it, but in a variety of prices.

You'd be surprised! As long as it's not too recent and isn't notably rare, a lot of really good, fairly recent games sell for dirt cheap used. There's a lot of that stuff in the mix too, but there's also a surprisingly wide variety of quality games at my local pawn shops.

I've stopped buying games and movies new entirely. Just be a little patient and you can find them for 1/4 or less of their original price.

I couldn't agree more. The console industry in general wants to make movies more than games.

We're not exactly swimming in quality games since the 2000's.
I really liked the 2003 game. Battle Nexus tried to change things and failed. Haven't played the third game yet.

But will it work on Steam since they removed it?

Amazon don't have the PC version on their site any more.

I've been noticing that more and more every year.

The trend started during the PS1 era but man has it been annoying for a decade now, cinematic games are terrible since they tend to sacrifice too much for a story that isn't that great, go ahead and watch many of those "movies" like Uncharted the movie on youtube and tell me that's a good story.

Yes they still work and you'll always be able to download it, with that said the prices of them rose since the title became removed since demand went up. If I didn't buy it during the winter sale last month I won't buy it for much more since it's a mediocre game after all.

Movie sales dont affect video game sales, nor do they increase the possibility of a video game being made unless it's a tie in.

It counts as a tie-in; It doesn't have to be based on the actual movie but the same franchise. A successful movie will boost sales for other media of the same IP, the marketing is already there.

Cinematic games like Uncharted are great and good games. Its all the open world games with tedious collect-a-thons and repetitive quests and pacing that need to go.

There are more open world games now than ever before and they're all copy/paste.

The Final Fantasy games have suffered greatly for this since around X. No more overworld map, piloting airships around the world... just running from Point A to Point B down corridors to get to the next FMV sequence. The illusion of leveling. Little to no sidequests, or extremely menial ones.
