    Unlike the engaging DS version of "Transformers: Decepticons", "Transformers: Autobots" is a crappy game that does nothing but protecting cars and civilians. Clearly Activision tried to make more money outta this trash.

    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 on with multiplayer? (Only game in which you can have most joining players and charecter (including color change!)) 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.
