Personally I think the DS version has alot going for it and would like to discuss with those who have it and don't what its all about. I will start with the gameplay and the characters. I switched with the Autobot/Decepticon versions, and was using Megatron and Optimus alot at first. At first the game felt clunky as you use the D-PAD to move your character around. The more you play through the story and arena the more characters get unlocked. The biggest gameplay trump the DS has on the consoles is your melee weapon, if you use your melee weapon the character will hold it and run around with it ready to strike. Which is accompanied by a Zelda-esque targeting system. There is a 3-4? hit combo you can pull off with everybots weapon. Each character has a different generic gun(big, medium, and small). Whats really neat is that when you find and unlock a character like Cliffjumper, you notice first that he is carrying a BIG gun and for melee carries 2 one handed swords. more later from me...anyone want to add anything?
