    NSider2 sucks.

    Now, On Topic, I don't really care about the rating, as long as the game lasts more than a day

    Transformers Animated: The Game
    Rating: 7
    Platform: DS
    Publisher: Activision
    Developer: Artificial Mind & Movement
    ESRB: Everyone

    It would be easy to spin a simple action game out of the new Transformers cartoon. Activision's take is a little smarter than that. It's as much about solving puzzles as smashing stuff with big robots, although there's enough smashing to go around. THe good guys are a three-man team of Autobots. Bumblebee can jump, scale walls, and charge power stations. Bulkhead picks up items and smashes doors with his heavy fists. Optimus Prime has a balance of speed and strength, plus some special skills-his grapple beam pulls him up to hidden areas, while his energy axe hits far-off switches. Minigame levels starring other Autobots add more action to the mix. For the most part, though, this is a surprisingly thoughtful challenge, and a much more effective game for it. -David S.

    It might lose me on that point. I want to transform and beat the crap out of other robots without stopping to solve puzzles. If there have to be puzzles, then "as much" still should not describe the ratio of focus between action and puzzles. I've got nothing against puzzles and smart gameplay, but why waste time doing what you can do with every other type of video game hero, when you could spend that time thrashing butt like only a violent space robot can?

    Two for Two Flamy. I agree. I want to destroy my enemies and the surrounding on which they stand.

    I might still buy this, but there is just an ASSLOAD of games coming this week and next, including Star Ocean on PSP. I really want this Animated game, but maybe in another pacheck.

    Hopefully I'll be getting this tonight, although I do close at work so I might not have the chance. I also plan on adding my fan review of it to give a fans perspective.

    I've got budget concerns and while I would love many of the games coming out this month I've adjusted my budget for only 2. Transformers Animated (It's the fan in me) and Fallout 3.
