    I think its very cool because theres a lot of free space to roam around in and I love being the jet and helocopter.

    overall, good game, (I have decepticons) graphics are medeocir, storyline is obviuse, but note this is the only transformers game for the ds that has a) freeplay, b) jets and helicopters! (yeah, for those who play war for cybertron, no choppers, right?) and c) a changible vehicale form! this deserves a 10 out of 10 just because it's the best transformers game around. should i go onoverall, good game, (I have decepticons) graphics are medeocir, storyline is obviuse, but note this is the only transformers game for the ds that has a) freeplay, b) jets and helicopters!

    For a movie tie-in, this game is actually really good. Now, I did play it a lot when I was a kid, but even without the nostalgia goggles, it is a very fun game. The missions are fun and have great replayability, the combat system is fairly good, and I probably spent quite a bit of time customizing my character. Not to mention it had a freeplay mode that I probably spent hours on. The onlyFor a movie tie-in, this game is actually really good.

Not to mention it had a freeplay mode that I probably spent hours on. The only real downside in my opinion is the graphics, which aren't the most detailed in the world. Overall, I would definitely recommend this game. Expand

  1. All in all, this game may not be a pillar of innovation or creativity, but it is fun. The combat is straightforward and the single player campaign is short, but fans will definitely have a good time here.
  2. Obviously, this is a game targeted to a specific audience, and while non-Transformers fans will find plenty to like it might be best as a rental. But for those who thrive in the world of high-tech morphing robots, the Battle for the AllSpark is a most tempting gameplay feature that will have thousands of gamers making daily contributions to the ongoing war.

    When it comes to fighting as the robot or the vehicle, Transformers DS falls flat. The action and its technique really needs a bit of a tune-up, especially in the "defense" department, and the glitches that pop up from time to time are really hard to ignore.
