There are few things everyone can agree on. Welsh corgis are cute, black licorice tastes weird (even if you like it), and the Ninja Turtles are awesome. Leonardo, Donatello, Michaelangelo and Raphael have been kicking robot, ninja, mutant and alien butt for the better part of three decades. This, however, puts a lot of pressure on a Ninja Turtles video game. Especially considering that the TMNT franchise has spawned a dozen games, many of which are very highly regarded.
Does Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows for Xbox Live Arcade stand its ground? Or does it fail to be totally radical?
More After the Jump
Way back in the day, when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made their debut on the morning cartoons, Archie Comics released a three issue mini-series that adapted the first five episodes of the 1987 television series.Â With the turtles celebrating their 25th “Shell-ebration” (not my gag, I promise you), Archie is collecting the series into a trade paperback.
A generation of readers thrilled to the heroic exploits of the Turtles as they set out to rescue April O’Neil from the Foot Clan!Â The thrilling story had it all: the origins of the Turtles, Splinter, Bebop and Rocksteady; the first Archie appearances of April O’Neil, Shredder and the evil, disembodied brain Krang; plus Krang’s robot army, the Neutrinos from Dimension X, and the Technodrome!
The 104-page comic arrives May 13, 2009 for $11.95.
