    Transformers Prime is a fun game and I do recommend it for younger fans of the series. However, experienced players might find it too easy as the main story only takes a few hours at most to complete if you don't have any problems.

    Advanced players won't find themselves dying too often, and the overall game can be completed within a few hours. Still, it's very fun while it lasts, especially for those of you that love the robots in disguise as much as I do. This is the best Transformers experience that can be found on a Nintendo system, so Trans-fans should definitely check it out.

    The inventive, dynamic gameplay that captures the appeal of stepping into the shape-shifting body of a giant bot rescues the entire package from what otherwise might have been mediocrity.

    As far as handheld gaming is concerned, Transformers Prime: The Game makes an encouraging case for the future of Transformer games on the 3DS and other handhelds, and is easily the best of the bunch so far.

    Transformers Prime is a solid entry for Nintendo owners this year. It was a wise decision to spin off the series from its other versions, and focus on a different series altogether. This allowed the team to create their own experience without having to simply downgrade the bigger version.

    Transformers Prime is aimed squarely at the younger/casual Transformers crowd and anyone that falls under that umbrella will likely get a kick out of making Optimus punch Megatron in his stupid face, although the further you stray outside of that demographic the less there is here for you. The game largely accomplishes what it sets out to do and pulls off some generally impressive presentation, but with its sights set on rudimentary mechanics it struggles to satisfy beyond being a semi-adequate tie-in to the show.
