Rated 10 out of 10 by Bionicleking Awesome Stew with a Side of EPIC!
I've played a fair share of Transformers games. To be perfectly honest, this is better than even the movie games. In the movie games, gameplay gets repetitive and boring. In this game, enemies always devise tactics on engaging you, from frontal assaults led by a commander to sniping. There is also a large amount of Mini-Cons, which enhance your character, adding a bit of flavor to take out enemies, from snipers to missiles to lasers to grenades to mines. Even though there are few Autobots to play as (Only three), it helps bring about what strategy you want to use. Hot Shot travels at high speed and low armor. Optimus is a rather slow behemoth, and Red Alert is somewhere in the middle. The bosses are fun, but can only be defeated once, unless you start a new game (ALL HAIL THE CHEATS!). All I can say is, even if you're a die-hard G1 fan, don't pass up the game for that. With the awesome graphics, this is a game not easily forgotten.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Bart223 Eh, Its Okay
Okay so I bought this game a loooooong time ago and just joined this thing and I played it not to long ago and wanted to rate it. Let me just say thet the graphics arent the best but arent horrible to.Me, I think the story line is very very very clear. The autobots need to get the mini cons ( a lost race of transformers ) before the desepticons get them. The controls are pretty similar to other shootings. So controls are good. The sound is close to great. You can understand what people are saying but some times the exsplosions are kinda muffled. Interface is described by one word, EXCELENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But in this game there are things that you just say " What the heck?!?!?" But I do under stad if people think its perfect. So yeah you shuold get it I think you should get it. Its not perfect but it is very good.
Rated 10 out of 10 by nickyt398 Best game in the series ever.
This game is a great game, and even though it may have some only decent reviews, it has a very fluid design with great service to fans. While it's story isn't sticking to any canonized publications, it's easy to follow, and includes very scenic locales that satisfy your need for a large environment and a great looking PS2 game. I would recommend this game mainly to even slight fans of Transformers, but really only if you're familiar with the Transformers: Armada universe and characters, unless you'd be fine with a game involving characters that aren't from the original series.My favorite thing about this game is the wide range of Mini-Cons you can use to upgrade your Trasformer of choice.My least favorite thing about this game is the difficulty of navigating the large world, and trust me, it can be difficult.

When I first wanted to get a Transformers game I came to this site. When I read the reviews for both the game based on the movie and this one I decided to get this one because of the review. I wil NEVER trust the reviews again. In this game if you beat a new and tougher enemy it always comes back, even if you defeat it. If you put a shield on and then transform, the shield goes away. You only have three choices for your robot. You can only be an Autobot. I highly disagree with anyone who likes this game. I suggest the movie-based game instead. I think the only fun part about it is driving around while in car form. What stinks is on the first level there are so many trees around that you always run int them. I hope that this review will turn you toward the right game.
Rated 1 out of 10 by DeltaClarke Too easy
It's a fun game. The graphics look realistic.The characters look a little real.It's boring.You feel like your that character.It's like your in the game.I got it.When you first play it it's fun.But after a while it gets boring.If you ask me if you want a fun Transformers game don't get this game!Get Revenge of the fallen.I hate it.It used to be fun.When it first came out it probably was a blockbuster game.But now it's a stupid game.Who would want this game.Anybody could complete it.Why would ATARY make a game like that.Why would GameStop still sell It.I will definitely trade it in.I bet my nephew would like it.It's the worst game ever!It's a wast of time.If I traded it in I would'nt buy it again.If you buy it you bought the wrong transformers game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by starscreamxGLVx Leader the best transformers game so far
This game is very challenging, so if you like games like this, it's for you. It's hard even on easy. I gotta say, if you bought the game based off of the new movie tranformers and didn't like it, trade it in and get this one. Sure you only get to choose three characters and forced to be Autobots; that's the only negative thing I find about this game. But it's got lots of bad guys to shoot that are smart that won't give up and every new stage you go to the more the challenge. It's got the biggest boss ever created. I am not talking about Tidle wave; I am talking about Unicron that could actually eat the death star off star wars. You get not only a gun to help you in your quest but diffrent kinds of weapons once you rescue mini cons. It's really worth it!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Ravenouszombie Itsgood you dont find a game that can alow so much
Great game its hard to find a game that has semi good graphics.It allows you to roam alot not just a specific path you can go were ever you want. Its quick transformation and its fun to smash the decepticons with your speeding car i give this game a great rating.

This game was extremely fun . It had the minicons and everything except the kids. My favorite level was the snow battle and when you fight starscream for the first time. I recommend this game to any Transformers fan!
