There will be thirty characters across both versions. There are unique characters that are available only on the DS game. If you are a Grimlock fan. If you are a Swoop fan. If you are fans of Dirge, Cyclonus and all the crazy little characters that people love. They have got them. There are more faves like Cliffjumper and Ultra Magnus, developed just for the DS edition.
The game has very unique visual characters and there is also a sort of RPG light system. Each character has different skills. As you go through the game's different levels, you unlock different skills, So even though Bumblebee and Cliffjumper might look the same, they play differently.
Like the console editions there are a variety of games. There is four player multiplayer. A local multi-player mode, deathmatch, king of the hill, capture the flag and another mode called Energon Dash. Players race around and try to hit check points before the other opponent does. The game sort of brings the RPG system in to allow players to ante-up your characters in combat against another. Say your friend thinks he better, he can put his character where his game is and ante his level 15 Cliffjumper as a challenge to ante up something equal.
With the RPG system there are two characters always in the game. This is set up so you will always have a main character and a trade-off character and you can switch between at any time. There are even two separate health bars. If one is running down, you can switch to your strong character while the other regenerates in the background. They do not play at the same time. However, you can switch between characters to capitalize on their weapons and abilities.
In the multiplayer games you can play the Autobots version against the Decepticons version or the same version together. The advantage to play the different sides against each other is there are different assets that you get to see. So they have content and data disks in the game you don't have. Games can be setup live and there are kill counts and all the other stats. You can play capture the flag and try to get them to the check point and other different gametypes that they wanted to expand on beyond just a death match.
Playing the game, you are turned onto one of the most graphically exciting games made for the NDS to date. They have pushed this hardware to the limit with detailed models, enhanced lighting, extended gaming moves and much more than meets the on this game platform before.
