Worst ninja turtle game

What is the worst ninja turtle game everyone has played? I have played a ton of them and I gotta say that arcade attack for the ds is by far the most boring and uninspiring turtle game. All you do is break some boxes to get maybe a weapon and some health, and then fight a group of enemies only to encounter 2 more boxes with either health or weapons to help prepare for the next group of enemies. That cycle continues until the end of each stage with nothing interesting going on in the environment. Each level you are just walking in a straight line to the right. Tmnt for the ds is pretty bad as well, but I will save that for another day.

TMNT (2007) for the GBA is probably the worst I’ve played. There’s a lot of contenders for “worst game” considering most of them aren’t good, but that one’s just a generic beat-em-up, and not even a fun one.

really? I thought tmnt for the gba was the best version of the tmnt games. It kinda reminded me of the old school games. It has been awhile since I played it though.

Probably the first one, released in 1989 on the NES and ported to a variety of consoles and PCs the following year. It is so badly programmed you can't actually finish the game on the DOS port without cheating.
TMNT for the GBA was a very good game. My only complain is that it is based on the movie, which I don't like.

I swear I had that exact version while growing up. I remember thinking that it was one of the better tiger games. I think I even managed to beat it back in the day.

the first one is kind of on the bad side, but I had some fun beating it with save states and an online guide. Luckily I did not play that one when I was a kid. I loved the angry video game nerd episode about it.

Maybe! I wasn't a huge fan of it back when I played it because I've always disliked the GBA as a platform for certain games. It felt tiny and the controls were too simplistic. I think the sprite-work in it is great, but I prefer the arcade and console sidescrollers.

It is better than the NES game, yeah. lol

Battle Nexus on Gamecube is one of the all-time worst goddamn games I've ever played in my entire f*cking LIFE.

Not just "a bad TMNT game". Just a plain terrible game. Nothing works, nothing is fun, nothing makes it worth playing. The first and third games based on the 2003 cartoon have some good stuff going on. Battle Nexus is dogsh*t. That game is so bad it's physically painful to play.

I can't say enough bad things about it, even though I've said it all a million times. I can't help it; I've played a million games and it's rare that I ever encounter anything that bad. It's like whoever made that one was specifically TRYING to piss me off on purpose.

I also dislike the original NES game. BUT. At least it's a functional, working game. It's just brutally unfair and needlessly frustrating and pretty much unbeatable unless you have Save states, a Game Genie, and/or an entire weekend with nothing at all else to do. But "Bad"? Eh. I can see it being fun if you're a masochist, and some people are. First level's fun. After that, I think it's All Show and No Go. But at least it's not completely broken to the point of being unplayable, like Battle Nexus.

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.
