Rented this game in mid july and just had to buy it soon after. Superb graphics that are amongst the finest I've seen on the PS2. You can stand upon a hilltop and look for miles around, even seeing Decepticon troops marching around in the distance. Control is fine and the feel of the 3 Autobots (Optimus Prime, Hot Shot and Red Alert) is perfect conveying the weight of a huge robot very well. Thankfully there's no sign of the annoying anime kids from the TV show. The mini cons on the other hand feature prominently and add greatly to the gameplay in the form of add ons and upgrades to your Transformers. These allow things like extra firepower whether its upgrading your laser gun or giving you rockets or mines, or giving you the ability to glide high above the great levels. The Amazon stage in particular looks beautiful and its great fun charging through the trees in car mode, smash through the enemy troops, transform, turn around and blast them before they know whats going on. There's plenty of extras to unlock to in the form of artwork, comics, music and the classic Generation 1 Public Service Announcements.
All in all this is a great game based on a bad show. Now if only the developers could get the Gen 1 license and give us the chance to play as any of the original Transformers including the Movie characters...
