"One of the most notable aspects of the game is the ability to transform on the fly at any time. This makes it possible to execute some impressively slick combo attacks, such as plowing into a group of enemies as a vehicle, transforming and then shooting the rest with your blaster - all in one smooth animation.

"Whether you're an old-school Generation One Transformers fan or new to the fold, there is sure to be something appealing about the new game. With a few tweaks and a bit of polish, Transformers could easily become a surprise hit for Atari."

GMR (Earned 5 out of 5 flames for it's "Hot Factor")

"Transformers and Atari. Two great tastes that taste great together are now joining forces to bring some major rock 'em, sock 'em robot action to PS2. With its massive locations, butt-kicking weapons and frenetic action, we think both gamers and Transformers fans alike will be very pleased."


"There's no doubt about it - Transformers is a visually impressive game. It's quite the feat on a few different levels. For one, may of the game's environments are absolutely massive, allowing you to see dozens (if not hundreds) of miles in every direction when you reach the area's highest point."

Play (Also includes interview with Producer Jon Chmura)

"Atari's Transformers is more than just a game based on a popular license. The toy- and cartoon-based elements are all present - the war between the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons, authentic cartoon voice actors, characters like Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream - but there's more substance than that.

"Beneath all the big-brand gloss is a title that's shaping up to be a hardcore action-shooter with substantial challenge."

Wizard (Includes interview with Mark Morrison, design producer, Melbourne House)

"While the Transformers themselves are more than meets the eye, the excellent graphics are sure to please the eyes of even the most discriminating gaming aficionados. Every Autobot and Decepticon boasts a stunning level of detail, from the glossy sheen on the vehicle paint jobs to the smoking trails of missiles tracking their targets.

"The intricately crafted environments, with impressive effects like falling snow and life-like forest canopies, will keep curious gamers exploring for hours. And the cinematic cut-scenes look like they were pulled straight from a high-budgeted animated feature."

As an extra note for any UK peeps wanting the game, it's actually been brought forwards a week to the 7th of May :)
