    Released in Japan only. Probably could get an import shop to get it for you, if I remember correctly you could turn the sub-titles to English and it wasn't that hard.
    Got pretty poor reviews though.

    It actually defaults to English-Dub, and for a Japanese-produced game, pretty good dub, they must have gotten all the Native-English-speaking VA's in Tokyo together to do it!

    The game got a lot of flak, and the game play is not great, but once you get used to it, it's playable. It's like 100X better than the first Ps1 BW game, for instance :lol 

    For G1-Nostalgia awesomness, however, it's GREAT! They cram in an amazing number of characters, including lots that you would think "They'd never use HIM!"...and yet they do!

    The storyline is pretty decent too, basically evolving into explaining what the heck happened to Shockwave after he disappeared in season 3.

    Absolutely one of my favorite G1-micro-continuities! It's not a good gamer's-game, but I really think it's a fine TF-fan-game!

    It's called, "Transformers: Tatakai" (sometimes spelled, "Tataki"). Here's a link to its page on the tfwiki, which has plenty of info on it:

    The Transformers (PS2) - Transformers Wiki

    EDIT: Dang, I didn't see that Aernaroth beat me to the punch.

    It's decent. Not my favourite TF game ever, and not that great a fighter either, but it is enjoyable enough.

    it's not worth the trouble.

    I cant see how anyone could get enjoyment from this. Yes, I played it, wish I hadnt. wish I hadnt paid stupid import prices for it. glad some idiot bought it from me for 80 dollars.

    The player who posted the video hasn't unlocked them all yet. Take a look at the Wiki article (above) for a full cast list.

    I thought that War for Cybertron would have relatively small casts for both factions...

    It's horrible. it's a bad brawler. you just beat up clones of decepticons (or autobots) until an invisible wall goes away in the area, then you go past it where you hit another invisible wall and enemies come out, and then repeat until that over and over and over. occasionally there will be a boss that you beat up in a really boring, uneventful fight with nothing unique about it. that's it.

    it also controls like shit.

    Don't worry. War for Cyb comes out soon and it's G1esch enough while not appearing to suck, so let this poor dog rest.
