I got my son the game for Xmas (kinda like Peter Griffin got Louis Galaga for her Birthday), and I ended up trying it after he went to bed. I can't wait to get a 3DS. Definitely loved it. I like that you can play a random rookie, and I love how they implemented a lock-on to make it work with the controls. It also expands on the war by mentioning characters that are not on the PS3 version. More than any other DS Transformer port, this one definitely can stand on it's own.
