Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Manhattan Missions description
The third game is about the ninja Turtles on the PC – and only for him and released far less successful and popular than the first two.
The plot – again with the Turtles against Shredder, who, as they become aware, is going to capture new York in forty-eight hours. Of course, four brave need to stop him, struggling with his numerous henchmen and just antisocial elements.
The game side, as in most traditional platformers. You can play for each of the four mutants. Their weapons correspond to the real (that is, it is each turtle is the same as in the comics/cartoons about them), each character has three attributes: strength, speed, stamina, eventually (in the case of successful outcomes of the fights with the enemies) they increase. Upon reaching a certain value of the power level of the ability to use in battle with the enemy super attacks (each of the turtles are different).
What is remarkable – referred to forty-eight hours on the passage, are real forty-eight hours. However, to play forty-eight hours it is impossible – it is necessary sometimes to make a break to rest for turtles, during which restored their health and stamina (the number of hours of rest you can define yourself). Levels only sixteen. Another interesting point – occasionally in the game there is a faint hint of three-dimensionality (turtles in some cases can move not only from left to right, but also to go in some doorways, climb stairs and so on).
Externally, the game looks at least cute and nice, the graphics are drawn and sufficiently clear. Play objectively interesting, although it is recognized that the complexity here is still lower than in the first two parts. But perhaps the most important for this game detail – the atmosphere of the original world – the place: plenty of exotic places – from abandoned buildings and subway tunnels from the famous collectors; during the passage you will meet many characters of the comic book, including not only a shredder, but "sweet couple" Bebop and Rocksteady and others. There are bosses, there are bonuses, there is the opportunity to train before the game and practice fighting (and your opponents will be triceraton!).
I admit that the reason for the unpopularity of the third part I do not understand, as well as its "exclusivity" for the PC (and this is in the period of the heyday of the "multiplatform"!). But in any case – to pay attention to this fact is not perfect. The game is really great, and even if inferior in some the first two (and – except in the gameplay, because graphics are a lot better), the attention of all fans of the famous pizza lovers and those who like the fascinating old arcade deserves more than.
