I still hate the original NES game I also didn't like the smash up game on wii but that was mainly because I felt like they tried to make something good then quit. They could have added so much more to it but all we got was a tmnt game with a ton of raving rabbit characters.

Hah! Yeah, that's exactly what "Smash-Up" feels like.

All the "classic" games are good, meaning everything from the NES/SNES/Genesis and original Gameboy. Yeah TMNT 1 on NES has some awful difficulty curves, but its plenty playable. The rest are great beat 'em ups and the Tournament Fighters are great.

Obviously once you move on to the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox era and beyond, the games suffer from what most licensed games do, in which they're rushed to the market and the games themselves aren't great. Still they are enjoyable, I had them all in the early 2000's when I was a teen. Although I'd probably get really bored of them quick if I were to play them now.

The NES game is a classic. The weird thing about it once you beat it, Splinter magically turns back into a human all of a sudden. No explanation why.

Keep in mind I haven't played every single TMNT game.

I'm going with the Genesis/Mega Drive version of Tournament Fighters. TMNT 2 BattleNexus was also quite a mess.

There were a couple of worthy turtle games after the classics like you said. For anyone who doesn't want to dig through the crap to find the good ones I will recommend a few. The 1st and 3rd games of the console versions of the 2003 series are pretty good. The 2nd one is alright but ruined by some difficult parts. I think all 3 of the gameboy advanced games are good. However,the 1st one based off the 2003 series is very short. I had a lot of fun playing danger of the ooze for the 3ds. Even though it is short it reminded me of radical rescue for the gameboy due to the metroidvania style. The other 3ds game based off the 2012 series isn't that bad either but it is kind of bland. Totally worth the 7 bucks I paid for it though. Mutant nightmare for the ds could have been great but there are some super difficult parts that just ruin everything. Maybe somebody looking for a challenge could appreciate it. All the other games I have played aren't worth mentioning. I have yet to play out of the shadows or the remake of turtles in time. I also refuse to play any game involving the hideous Michael Bay turtles.

My least favorite is either:

Arcade Attack:
It was a bit bland, and enemies took a LOT and I mean A LOT of hits to defeat. Making the game drag for no reason. Had this award camera angle as well.

Battle Nexus (GBA)
The whole forced crystal finding gimmick was a deal breaker for me, tbh. Also, I think you had to find your weapons first? Awful.

Back from the Sewers (GB)
Turtles have terrible hitboxes, weapons are so short, might as well lose their weapons and just punch. The turtles themselves look pretty derpy, and the bosses have huge heads for some reason.


But taking a step back, I don't think I've played a BAD TMNT game.
Some are clearly much better than others though.
Also completely ignored Bay Turtles games.

In my opinion the worst TMNT game has to be TMNT Battle Nexus. The Battle Nexus only accounts for a small fraction of the game! The whole story is mainly about snippets of the 4kids cartoon with a small dash of Battle Nexus sprinkled in at the last second. The game's combat, sound design, character design, and animations are poor quality as well. TMNT Battle Nexus is a terrible game because its content has nothing to do with its title and its gameplay is overall just bad.

I too also ignored the odd Bay turtles, that is the obvious first choice for anyone lol.

Are you talking about the main console version of battle nexus or the gba version?

The best thing about TMNT Battle Nexus was having the original TMNT arcade as an unlockable in it. First time you could do play that game outside of an arcade. A shame they removed the voice overs and just used the same two tunes throughout the whole game. But oh well, Konami just didn't have the rights to the OST, I guess.

Slashuur was also an interesting OC as were a few cutscenes created in purpose for the game. I was actually a bit disappointed Slashuur turned out to not exist outside of the game.
