TFA for Nintendo DS

Posted by:

Thanks to the PR firm, Step3 for sending us press materials for the forthcoming Transformers Animated Game for Nintendo DS.  The Animated style seems very conducive to gaming.  Check out the fact sheet, as well as images: Bulkhead throwing wrecking ball, Optimus throwing axe, Optimus racing, Bumblebee climbing and Bumblebee boosters.

Do you own a NintendoDS?  Me neither, but I think it may be time to splurge!

The last link doesn't work right. It goes to a pic with an X over it.

I own a DS (actually, I own two; a blue original and a blue light; any guesses what my favorite color is?) and both versions of the movie game. I haven't played any of Decepticons because I am royally stuck on the Autobots mission where Bumblebee has to destroy the S7 towers. Maybe one day, I'll beat it and move on to Decepticons. Then I'll be ready for this one. Then again, maybe I should play the Teen Titans GBA game that I've had for over a year-and-a-half and haven't played either. I'm sure that'll prepare me for the experience as well.

From the looks of that fact sheet, we're not going to be playing as Ratchet, just the "young-bots".

slurge/splurge... same difference! Did I mention, I'm just getting over strep throat! What a sweet treat that was to come back from vacation and get hit with that!!! A serious *pain in the neck* it was... When the game comes out, you'll have to give us a full report TPR.

Don't worry about the logo.jpg. I took out the link. It's probably some read error, image formatting issue, from the super gigantic file they sent us... Anyway, it's not worth the trouble to figure out. It's the same as TFA logo except it says "GAME" under it. Nothin' earth shattering/new here.

Enjoy the pix.

Perceptor, you've been telling me that I'll have to write you reviews on stuff forever and not ONCE have you guys actaully asked me to write one. That said, if you guys want me to write a review on anything, I'm more than capable and willing!

Good call by Human Error, by the way. I believe it was him who said that collecting the dispurced Allspark fragments from the show sounded like a plot for a video game.

Woah that game looks really fun.

Ahhh! The graphics...they burn!
Jumpercliff said,  - 2008-07-28 12:13:26
I am definitely going to get this game. But first...I need Godzilla: Unleashed!

I don't think the graphics are TOO bad. Albeit, they're bad in comparasin to what we have today, but they aren't bad by DS standards. And I kinda think that with the DS's limitations, they can really capitalize on the stylistic look of TFA and bring it to life. I'm really looking forward to this game!
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-07-28 13:54:56
Woohoo! I just beat the mission I was stuck on in Autobots and I WHOOPED Blackout with Jazz. Hopefully it'll be smoothe sailing from here!
Someone said,  - 2008-07-28 15:38:44
I think they coulda made it more action-adventure, but who cares what I think anyway?!!?
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-07-28 17:08:10
I may be hoping for a little too much, but I'd like to see guys like Blurr, Wreck-Garr, and Arcee show up. Maybe not playable, but be around, that'd be pretty cool. I do hope that the Dinobots are in it. Maybe as a boss, maybe as playable characters. Who knows!? At this point, we really dont' know much of anything, so there's still so much to speculate.

Why only on ds why!
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-07-29 18:31:58
Here's a better question: why would you want it for any other system? Personally, I think the DS suits TFA.
How come no one cares for ps2 any more?

I hope this game is good.I hope you can play decepticons too like in transformers the game. Playing as lock down would be sweet!!

Technically Lockdown isn't a Decepticon (or an Autobot), but I get what you're saying.
Rhinoxfan said,  - 2008-08-01 17:07:48
people still love ps2 why do u think they still make the new games available on that platform? i still play mine
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-08-01 19:50:08
I think they still make games for the PS2 soley for the fact that not many people are able to afford the PS3 still.
can you only play autobots or decepicon, o i forgot how do you spell decpicon
