  1. Ultimately, Transformers Animated: The Game works by delivering classic platforming gameplay and getting the feel of the series down.
  2. Fans of the series will certainly not want to miss out on this title that offers a great action-puzzle experience that will keep you on your robotic toes.
  3. Transformers Animated proves to be a surprisingly enjoyable game that could appeal to more than just young fans of the television show.
  4. A kid who loves the TV show might find Transformers Animated: The Game amusing for a little while, and some adults might enjoy the more challenging puzzles. However, most players who aren't blinded by love for Transformers will probably find this title a bit boring. There are better games like this out there.
  5. For the most part. though, this is a surprisingly thoughtful challenge, and a much more effective game for it. [Dec 2008, p.102]
  6. Although this game is based on the new animated series, Transformers Animated: The Game has a solid single-player campaign that will test both your reflexes and your brain.

    It's not bad by any means, but to some of you seeking the ultimate Transformer gaming experience, it may be less than meets the eye.
