The games for the ds are a half-half. One side is good one side is bad and I'm not talking about the robots either. first, the good. The game can be fun at times. some of the combat is entertains and it's just fun to be a giant robot throwing cars around. Now, the bad. One sentence. It could've been better. There's the graphics. it's no xbox360 version but come on activision! poor some soul into this game! it glitches allot especially in the one player mode. The graphics for the scenery and the game environment in which you explore are well boring and not very tasteful Even if it is in a city. (For some of the missions). The targeting system is messed up a little. Firstly, you have to shoot then lock on. Then you have two types of weapons. Heavy and normal. aside from the bad graphics and the clunky controls with a not so great targeting system. The game offers a modes to play other then the one-player story mode. Which has stupid and good missions. Some are so difficult though sometimes you wonder why your playing. The multi-player mode is just a battle between your friends. It doesn't matter which version you have but you need 2. no ds download play. Anyway all you do is pick an arena and battle it out either side of the transformers 4 player. again, same bad controls and such apply for multi player.However turning into a robot with the touch of a button is cool. especially when turning into Megatron's jet. So basically how patient you are counts. There is also an online but i did not include it because ive never played it. so a Hit and Miss? you decide me?wouldn't buy it. Sayonaara.
