As a thirty year old guy, I grew up loving the Autobots and Decepticons, so it doesn't surprise me that an entirely new group of robot-loving kids are getting a chance to watch these Transformers duke it out. Considering the success of the recent live action movie, I guess I shouldn't be shocked by any of this. Still, I couldn't help but be a little shocked at the cover artwork and the fact that I didn't see this cartoon coming.
I'll tell you what does surprise me - the fact that this game isn't all that bad. Had I simply based my opinion on the cover art I can tell you right now that it wouldn't have received a very high score. However, now that I've played through the lengthy single-player campaign, I'm happy to say that there is a solid action game on this small little Nintendo DS card. It may not be the Transformers game fans of the robots have been waiting for, but it's a worthwhile portable game that is a lot better than you might expect judging by the box."
