Kids say (2):

Yes, it's a fun and frenetic game that's easy to control, offers multiple characters and modes, and lets gamers battle head-to-head as one of 11 Autobot or Decepticon fighters in multiplayer matches on the same TV. To be fair, the Transformers games to date are hit and miss, but this game stays true to its focus -- a colorful brawler with some racing segments -- and delivers an enjoyable ride for fans of the franchise. It won't win any awards, mind you, but younger fans will no doubt enjoy fist-fighting against baddies, using a number of weapons, and of course, transforming at the right time and place to complete the various missions. Note: The game is also playable on Nintendo's Wii U system and the 3DS. The Nintendo DS version is a different game.
