4.0 out of 5 stars What a game!!! December 1, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok, this was 20 times better than the first Ninja Turtles game. What was Ultra/Konami thinking when designing the first game!? I'm not goin' strike at them hard because of the graphics, but the unfair difficulty, lack of actual Ninja Turtle characters, different abilities of each Turtle (making two of the four useless), and lack of connection with the cartoon series made the first game less than mediocre. Although the first game was a hit, Ultra Soft and Konami knew the messed up and they promised that the sequels will have better gameplay and characters, designed for younger kids (main target audience of Ninja Turtle fan base).

Ok, I do admit that the graphics were far inferior from the original arcade release, but a 8-bit console has techinical limitations and the game had to be designed to fit in with the limits and it has. The NES version's graphics were advanced for its time and it followed other arcade gameplays with only a few, but better exceptions. Adding two new levels was innovative (along with advertising Pizza Hut - you get a free pan pizza coupon with the purchase of the game), and so was adding three new bosses. Some of the original levels were longer than in the arcade version, but it was fun and a bit easier than the quarter sucking machine. Best thing of all were the choice of ninja turtle characters from the cartoon, with a few made up mini characters and bosses like Torra and Shogun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably my #1 favorite game of all time August 2, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The first TMNT game was terrible. When the sequel came out, it quickly became my favorite game on NES. It topped Mario 3. It topped Megaman 2. It topped Legend of Zelda. Why? Two players could play at the exact same time! Nowadays that's common, but back when NES was pretty much the only thing, it was mind-blowing and amazing! A great game!!! A Must-Have for the NES library! (Plus I hear TMNT 3 and 4 are great too, but I have never played them)

5.0 out of 5 stars great game August 28, 2009

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is one of the few games that you can still play without getting bored. It is a lot of fun and really challenging. As far as graphics it was one of the best for Nintendo. Buy it, it is one of the few worth playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The arcade port everyone waited for May 29, 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In 1987, when arcades ruled the gaming world (aside from Nintendo), Konami developed and published Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Based on the popular comic book and cartoon franchise, players around the world enjoyed it so much especially with the 4 player co-op the game presented at the time and everyone wondered if it come for the NES. Instead, we got a different game altogether that garnered mixed reactions and opinions. Fast forward to 1989 when Ultra Games, a subsidiary of Konami, released the arcade port and aptly titled it "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game." Not only was this a GREAT game, it sold well and ensured that more games based on them would continue to be released. This truly was the arcade port everyone waited for.

TMNT II: TAG was based on the first TMNT arcade game. The turtles are chasing after Shredder and in the process, he kidnaps April and Master Splinter. You can choose from one of 4 characters (Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphel) and proceed through seven stages that are broken down into sections. You can strike an enemy with your turtle's weapon or jump kick to take them out. Each turtle has a special move which allows them to do a lot of damage and take out some enemies altogether. At the end of each stage, you face off against a boss character to beat up and move on until you reach Krang and Shredder at the very end of the game. You can earn extra lives after earning a certain amount of points and the game allows you three continues; if you use them up before you beat the game, you have to start over from the beginning. If you were well informed as far as cheat codes were concerned, you could have used a code that lets you start at any stage you wanted.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing arcade-to-NES game January 18, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Really, I am not a huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan. However, this game had me curious. It was made by Konami, the makers of Contra. I NEEDED to play to find out how good this game would be. I was amazed right when I started playing.

First, let me note that the first game on the NES was not a port. It was an entirely new game. THIS game is the port of the first TMNT arcade game.

The graphics are fantastic for the NES. It rivals other NES games in a good way. Although the arcade game is rather 16-Bit, this game still has really great graphics.

The sounds and soundtracks are proof that Konami helped create this game. The music is as upbeat as ever, and the sound effects get the feel of a beat 'em up.

The gameplay is the obvious meat of the game. It is a beat 'em up fighter in which you play as one of the 4 Ninja Turtles. The brief info is that you must beat up a bunch of ninjas as you progress through the levels, as well as a boss battle at the end. Playing with a friend makes things even more fun.

The strangest part about this game is that it promotes Pizza Hut. As you play the game, there's a chance you may observe a sign with the Pizza Hut logo. It's also said that if you buy the game boxed, it will have a coupon! Isn't that a weird promotion?

If you like beat 'em ups, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or Konami, it's best to buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars childhood bliss
It was everything I hoped for! Childhood bliss! It's a tad glitchy on the character movement, but it can't be perfect if the game is older than I am. Other than that works amazing. Read more
