What can you tell about a game from its minimum system requirements? Well, the information helps gamers to determine if their computer system can handle the title. This can be very helpful for people who prefer to play video games on their PC rather than a console. It doesn’t necessarily tell us anything about the quality of the game. In this case, the minimum system requirements for Mutants in Manhattan reveal that it is most likely running off of an older engine. It appears that even the most basic computers will be able to play this game.
System Requirements for Mutants in Manhattan
OS: Windows 10 / Windows 8 / Windows 7 / Windows Vista
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 @ 2.0GHz or AMD Athlon II x2 250 @ 3.0GHz

Memory: 1 GB RAM
Storage: 7 GB available space
DirectX: Version 9.0c
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Sound Card: DirectX® 9.0c or later
Additional Notes: Controller highly recommended for best experience
To put it simply, these are the kind of system requirements I would expect from a game that was released in 2010 – or perhaps even earlier. This doesn’t necessarily raise any red flags, but it is an interesting factor to consider when purchasing Mutants in Manhattan. If almost any computer on the current market can handle this title, fans may be torn between buying the digital or the traditional console release. Unfortunately, the recommended system requirements are still unknown, but it’s nice to know that almost anyone will be able to play this game when it is released.
Ultimately, the additional notes provided with these requirements may be the deciding factor for a lot of gamers. If you have a controller that you can use with your PC, then there wouldn’t be a problem with purchasing the game digitally. However, if you only have a controller with your console, you might want to consider picking up the console version of Mutants in Manhattan instead. Beat ’em up titles are typically better experienced with a controller. As for the actual requirements, they’re definitely low enough that almost any and every TMNT fan will be able to enjoy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan when it is finally released.
