Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan came out earlier this week and I was finally able to play a bit of it this morning. I’m making a habit of recording all my first time playthroughs now on the PS4 so you guys can get a feel for how the game looks and plays. I find that actual in-game footage is more interesting to watch than trailers as you sometimes don’t get an accurate feel of the game watching those, since the publishers do their best to make even dull games look interesting.
The gameplay in TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan is pretty straight forward. You have both weak and strong attacks along with a jump and double jump. There’s even a convenient glide mechanic thrown in. For ranged attacks, you have throwing weapons you can use. If you are playing solo, you can swap effortlessly to any of the four turtles to make use of their unique attacks which also include special attacks called Ninjitsu.
There are a lot of buttons to utilize in the game and sometimes you forget what does what. I highly suggest going through the tutorial once just to learn the basics and to earn a couple quick trophies.
For the most part, TMNT is a button mashing game that doesn’t really require any deep knowledge of move sets or combos. Just keep mashing away at the same two buttons and occasionally block, counter, or use Ninjitsu. Throwing stuff doesn’t really seem to be very effective in combat, unless I’m just not doing it correctly.
I’ll have more for you as I get more play time with TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan.
