When I was a kid, I loved nothing more than playing with and watching Transformers. When the 32-bit era struck in the video game world years ago, I had hoped some developer would come up with the idea of a Transformers licensed game. A Beast Wars (based on the computer animated Transformers show that premiered in the mid to late 90's) game was released, but I longed for the days of the Autobots and Decepticons battling it out. Now, finally, Atari has crafted an action packed, and above all fun, game that fans have waited years for. Even though it's primarily based on the new lame cartoon and toy line; Transformers offers gamers the opportunity to play as Autobot warriors Red Alert, Hot Shot, and above all Optimus Prime. Playing as one of the three, you run and gun and transform your way back and forth through an onslaught of Decepticon baddies. Also, you can find scattered Mini-con which you can equip to gain new abilities and receive better weapons. Other than that, the game's main focus is on shooting, and on that it does a fine job. The game's combat system is surprisingly intense and is the main highlight of the game. You'll find familiar faces doing battle with the evil Megatron and Starscream, but playing as a few other different characters would have been welcome. The controls can be sluggish, and the game feels too short upon completion, and maybe a feature of being able to play as the Decepticons, are the game's only downsides. That aside, longtime fans of the original Transformers should check this out, and even with what it has going against it, the game succeeds mightily.

(...). What we have here is a well put together game, complete with a challenging difficulty, good graphics, tolerable voice acting (and despite what some reviews have said, Optimus and Megatron ARE voiced by their respective voice actors, Gary Chalk and David Kaye), and the real star of the show, GOOD gameplay. That in itself makes for a wonderful experience. But the added element of hunting down minicons(uuuuuuuugh....) is justified by actually having them enhance your "bot" with useful weapons and/or features.
All in all, a great experience.

Let me start by saying this is the greatest Transformers game ever, and thats not saying much. Most transformers games suck *cough**cough*bestwars*cough**cough*
But this is a great action title. The story is an all new story. You have to go rescue minicons that crash land on Earth The story dies after the first level. There practicaly is no story. Just go rescue minicons. for those who dont know Mini Cons are little garry coleman sized transformers. They link on to a transformer and give them certain abilities. One gives you a force sheild. another lets you glide. So on and so forth.
You can choose from three autobots, and each diffrent one has a diffrent specialty.
Hot Shot is the speed demon. I mostly used him after I beat a level and forgot to get some minicons.
Red Alert is all around. I never used him. He just sucks. However my freind likes him best.
And the Big Man, Optimus Prime, is the strong one. He is the one i used most. He was the best.
At first, you will not like the controls. The controls were akward, but after the first level, they turn out to be for the best. They actually make the game easier.
Te game is only 5 levels, but there are tons of datacons to find. Data cons allow you to unlock unlockables. The unlockables are Music, Art, Toy stuff, and Videos. My favorite unlockables are old public survice anouncements. They were just to corny, and that makes them hilarious. One was about wearing bright clothes so when you ride your bike you dont get hit by a car.
This game is great, but not perfect. 4 out of 5

Based on how Transformers games have usually been(horrible), I wasnt expecting much. To my surprise , this game rocks. Best described as a mix of first/third person shooters, Smugglers Run , and mild platforming, it combines the best of those genres, and adds new elements to the mix. Transformations are both flawless and usefull, you can run down your enemies as a car, and quickly transfrom and start blasting. The power-ups(Obtained by collecting 'mini-cons') are very cool, and combine with each other.. adding missiles, sniper guns, night vision, ect set up in a combination you feel is best.The game runs quite smoothly, the level design is excellent, and the lack of radar or maps, gives it an adventure/exploration feel. The levels never feel repetitive or 'boxlike', the terrain, plants and little details bring it to life. The enemy AI is very good, if you fire and they dont see you, they will fan out and search, untill they have visual sight of you. Some will run and contact other bots to come help, with huge dropships adding more enemies where you have defeated them. The boss battles are what some of us have waited 20 years for, better than the original cartoon, and an absolute blast to play. (Tidal WAVE!!!)
The only strikes against it are it does run a bit short, and it is an absolute crime that the game is not 2 player. The replay would have been extended 100fold were the existing levels and powerups made available for 1 on 1 battles. Oh well. And as far as all the armada/gen 1 threads, who cares? Its about how the game plays, and this one plays well.
