Gameplay Help
· Use Raphael or Donatello.
Raphael and Don are in my opinion, the best characters. Don’s long reach with his stick is very effective against enemies and Raphael’s jumping attack also proves to dispatch the AI quickly.
· Play in Co-op.
Although Co-op play is only needed for two achievements I would suggest gaining them all with a buddy. This will make a lot of the achievements much easier as defeating bosses without dying/losing health is extremely difficult on your own.

Originally a 1989 classic arcade game the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been brought forward two decades and have been placed on the Xbox Live Marketplace for everyone to experience again and again without inserting any of your coins to carry on playing. This is quite a fun game that has a nice set of achievements and plays pretty smoothly, it also supports 4-play local and Live co-op. The game has no glitches but there are a lot of achievements that can be missed, causing you to replay the whole story mode again.

Step 1 – Story Mode
First off you should start the story mode, it only has a handful of levels and can be completed in 1 Hour to 1 ½ Hours. However, no achievements are connected with completing the game, bar two achievements. The majority of achievements are unlocked for doing random things in each level, these are usually defeating bosses without dying or losing a set amount of health. To stop yourself playing the whole game again I would suggest reading the achievement guide thoroughly and knowing the best places to net all the achievements as well as some good tricks to defeating the bosses.

The achievements that are not linked to boss battles are ‘Deep Freeze’, ‘Ninjitsu’, ‘Superhero’. These need you to not get frozen whilst in the factory, kill three enemies in one attack and break every object in the game. Check the achievement guide out for detailed help on how to get these achievements.

Here is the general order you should unlock the achievements in:
1.Lofty Goal
2.Lickity Split
3.Fire hazard
5.Deep Freeze
7.Turtle Soup
The achievements ‘Ninjitsu’ and ‘In the Dark’ can be unlocked at any time in the game.

Step 2 – Online Co-op Achievements
There are only two achievements which require you to play online and they will get you the remaining 55. For these you will need to defeat Shredder/Complete the game in online Co-Op play and also have each player gain 250 points. These achievements are named ‘Real Ultimate Power’ and ‘Slice and Dice’ respectively, see the achievement guide for details. I would also suggest visiting the achievement trading thread, as the online community is as dead as the dodo.

If you have been following the roadmap closely then at this point you should be sitting on 200 . However, there a fair amount of missable achievements so chances are you’re missing a few. The only thing you can do is replay the whole story again as you cannot replay levels/missions. If you are missing an achievement which you need to be on Live for then just go to ‘Multiplayer’ at the main menu.
