A brief lesson in Transformers history.
20 October 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Five Faces of Darkness takes place just after Transformers: The Movie finishes. The Autobots have one a victory over their enemies the Decepticons under their new leader Rodimus Prime (Optimus Prime died in TF:TM). Meanwhile the now leaderless (after the death of Megatron and the disappearance of Galvatron) 'cons have fled to the burnt out planet of Charr. In a nice touch Unicron's head is still orbiting the Transformers' home planet of Cybertron. While the valiant Autobots celebrate their victory they are raided by unknown assailants who capture Kup, Ultra Magnus and Spike. Rodimus Prime assumes it is the Decepticons and (assisted by Grimlock) goes to Charr to find out more. There they are taken as prisoners by the down on their luck Decepticons...

Highlights: *Danger, from here on in there be Spoilers* Rodimus Prime discovering the history of Cybertron and the truth about the origins of the Transformers. - The Quintessans (previously seen as judges in TF:TM) are in fact their creators. Galvatron's return - despite now lacking Leonrd Nimoy's voice. Hints that Unicron has survived TF:TM.

Lowlights: A sometimes annoying side quest involving Blurr and Wheelie. MANY animation errors. Patchy sound quality from time to time. A somewhat anti-climatic battle between Metroplex and Trypticon (two city sized transformers).
