    I played it beat the 1st level. Killed Dirge with Prime. I saw the silhouettes of Grimlock, he's huge, Jazz, Sideswipe, Swoop, Warpath and some other big bots. Graphics are really good. Game is fun as heck. Control is tight.

    Would you buy it when it comes out? I know you only played the first level, but I'm anxious. :)

    I'm waiting for the reviews to come out before I buy anything, I made the mistake of getting Transformers Revenge of the Fallen for Wii the last time I didn't wait for a review...

    ...And there went the 50 bucks that I will never get back...

    I think i might get this as an alternative to not having a PS3/Xbox 360.

    Plus The Dinobots are a nice bonus. :D

    I think the 07 Movie Games were the best TF games for the DS.

    Do they have

    *free roam
    *a character you can make up
    *play as any character, made up or otherwise in multiplayer

    If they have at least the first and second, I'm SOLD.

    Really?

    Glad I skipped those. I heard that you can't even drive around as your character favorites in free mode. Is that true?

    Edit : Chopperface, I agree whole heartedly, for all three of those reasons. I think the multiplayer is my favorite though. I played my cousins on the DS's wireless multiplayer, and it was a blast for all three of us.

    Especially me, cuz I dominated. :lol

    Yup, you can only play as the character you made in multiplayer. There's no free roam either, and Ratchet, Starscream, Breakaway, Long Haul, Ironhide, Sideswipe, Barricade, Soundwave and Grindor are basically missing. You can only play as Sideswipe and Barricade in challenge missions, and Starscream and Breakaway are only in jet mode.

    You can only play as Prime, Bee, and the guy you made. On Decepticons you can only play as Megatron, Sideways, and the guy you made.

    No free roam, it's like a mini version of the PS3/360 version. You unlock characters and can use any of them in multiplayer. No made up character. You only play as a generic bot at the start to learn the basics of the game. Don't sleep on this game, it's really fun. You take 2 characters with you to any level and can switch at any time by pressing A. And the character not being used can heal themselves on the sideline. Jetfire looked awesome. Dirge has his conehead. Starscream looked cool as well.

    Oh and the con version has Cyclonus!

    I just realised I saved myself 60 bucks and hours of frusteration aimed towards myself.

    You can go back and replay levels to find hidden things.

    I'm defnately getting this game, probably just so I can get the wide variety of characters and all the multiplayer games...

    Wait, is it the online multiplayer? Or the kind where you wirelessly link one DS to another DS?

    Sadly it looks like only local wireless multiplayer. And I don't know anyone with a DS. Being a 30 year old probably doesn't help lol. But I enjoyed the story mode. And like the home consoles. you fight Trypticon in the Autobots version and Omega in the cons. It's a mini version of the console version with more characters. I really want to go back and play lol.

    Oh oops, I meant I woulda been sold if you could play as any character in multiplayer.

    Sounds good! Kinda sucks to not have free roam... but I'll deal.

    Yeah but at least you can replay any level with any character. And man Grimlock's outline was huge!

    Sadly? Well, maybe for you, but I have a little sister who's been dying to play with me... and she has a DS. I'll just have to talk her into buying a game...

    I could never figure out how to link up with those online players anyways. Heck, I couldn't even figure out how to get to the Target download center so I could download the G1 Starscream repaint for my Transformers: Decepticons DS version. :(
