this game and decepticons version, wich i havent played but its got good reviews, are the best transformers games i have ever played in my life! but the camera has an auto target for difficult combat. NOT TO MENTION YOU WILL CRY (wich i did) OF HOW MUCH STRESS THIS GAME DILIVERS DUE TO HOW HARD IT IS. (see title). but you do get to create a drone which you play as along with all the autobots, and you get to level up and get cool abilities! this game suprisingly has a comedian part with funny gags, lines, and threat level responces. when i get the decepticons version i will review that too! but in the mean time, 7.5 for this! honestly get cheat codes!

I went in thinking this game was going to be another horrible licensed game. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I popped it in to my DS. The game, while by NO means perfect, accomplishes feats I never thought possible on the DS. First off, the sheer size of the game world is amazing. It's very similar to GTA in the size. This is, however, limiting on the detail and activity that goes on in the city. Which leads to one of the minor flaws of the game: the graphics. By no means are the graphics eye-popping or original. However, this does not really detract from the experience.

One of the best features of the game is the sound aspects of the game. If you watched Transfomers as a kid, then you will instantly recognize the sound effects. They come straight from the TV series and I admit I giggled a little when I heard that classic laser sound. But perhaps the BEST part of the sound is the FULL voice acting. That's right. Vicarious Visions went all out and even got the original (and movie) voice actor for Optimus Prime. All the voice actors do a spot on job.

Finally the gameplay. This is where I was let down. Combat boils down to mashing the A button until your opponent is dead. Now this works for some games and it sort of works here, but I was just left wanting something a little deeper. Another thing is the targeting system. It's terrible. It's almost impossible to lock on to something before it turns you into slag. This leads me to the final issue of the game. It is pretty unforgiving. I'm a pretty experienced gamer and I've run into a ton of situations where I can do nothing but die. It's challenging but extremely frustrating at the same time.

Overall, Transformers isn't a BAD game per se. It just isn't a high caliber game. Some of the innovations (size of the world, full voice acting) are amazing for the DS but in the end all that matters is gameplay gameplay gameplay. Check it out if you're a Transformers fan or DS fan. Others? You can pass it.
