    I've played and LOVED the original Nintendo DS titles for the 07 movie, which allowed you to transform and scan modes in a free roam area. How are the console games? Or psp and 3ds titles?

    I've played the 2007 DS games, the ROTF DS games, ROTF on PS3, ROTF on Wii, and DOTM on PS3. Out of those, I'll rank them like this.

    1. 2007 DS Games
    2. ROTF on PS3
    3. DOTM on PS3
    4. ROTF DS games
    5. ROTF on Wii

    Out of those, ROTF on Wii is the one truly awful game on the list. Terrible controls, gameplay, and a tiny cast just make it as unfun as possible.

    The ROTF DS games were a massive step down from the 07 DS games, but at least they were playable. The DOTM PS3 game was bland, but palatable. ROTF had basically no campaign but still terrific gameplay.

    The 2007 DS games, particularly the Decepticon game, have great, developed characters, a long story with real emotional stakes, fun open world gameplay, and are just a blast. Though some characters do fall by the wayside. Sorry Ratchet and Blackout, I guess that's why they paired you guys together for a boss battle.

    The only downside is that some of the characters, well, mostly the Autobots, mostly play the same with a few minor differences. Jazz is fast as hell. Optimus is balanced. Ironhide is slow and strong. Ratchet and Bumblebee are really average. Maybe if they'd given them more unique weapons. Sure Ironhide has his cannons and Jazz has his plasma thing, but again, they don't feel unique enough sometimes. And even though playing as the Decepticons feels more unique, they all still feel kinda the same in robot mode.

    I wouldn't mind a successor with the same gameplay, but maybe more characters. I would've loved to have played as Bonecrusher, for one.

    1. Transformers (PS2/PS3) - Nostalgic
    2. Transformers: Dark of the Moon (PS3) - Cool that it's a prequel to the movie itself
    3. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (PS3) - Multiplayer was/is awesome
    4. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (PS2) - Campaign is not that great, but the co-op mode is cool
    5. Transformers (PSP) - A lot of characters, but the controls are bad
    6. Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (PS3/PS4) - If you're playing this for the movie portion I'd say please don't. The Cybertron levels are decent.
