  1. The broken controls of shooting, fighting and strafing coupled with monotonous "Destroy 'X' amount of enemies" missions and ridiculous enemy respawns makes Transformers: Decepticons nothing more than a chore.
  2. The best video game adaptation to date of the live action Transformers movie. The bad news is that it’s still not saying much.

The story for the game isThe transformers licensed games are usually not that good. this licensed game, however, managed to do pretty well. The story for the game is great. tying in the story with the create-a-bot manages to work, and is well written in general. the gameplay is pretty fun. the combat and open-world roaming is pretty cool to do, and with numerous vehicles to choose from and scan, the replay value is big in this game. the graphics are pretty cool for a ds game. each bot looks well done, though the environments clearly show that they're on the ds, as you can see where points and edges of floors are. the voice acting is surprisingly very clear, especially for a ds game, and each person's voice work fits perfectly with each character. the music is also excellent, fitting perfectly with the Decepticons. my man problem with the game is glitches. there are some ways where it is very easy to make a glitch occur, and this sometimes gets bothersome. Overall, Transformers: Decepticons is a great underrated ds title that should be checked out by fans of transformers. Full Review »
