Despite a few bugging criticisms, like somewhat repetitive game play, the small roster of characters and sometimes high difficulty level, the game was very well received by both fans and critics alike and until ''[[VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron Transformers: War for Cybertron]]'' was released, was often considered to be the best Transformers game made. It also became one of the highest selling games on the PS2, ranking as the 6th highest selling game at the time.

* SaveTheVillain: Optimus tries to do this with [[spoiler: Megatron, when the latter is about to fall into the lava beneath his platform, but Megatron refuses to be saved and allows himself to fall]]. Which is a reference to his death in ''TransformersArmada'', where he lets himself fall into Unicron's black hole.

* TheStarscream: Starscream in this game is actually more along the lines of his traditional character than the [[TransformersArmada specific version he is based on]]. For instance there's this exchange when Optimus demands Megatron's location so they can finish the war.

* CharacterSelectForcing: Cyclonus is far easier to fight with Hot Shot than the others, due to his alt form being short enough to put him underwater, and thus away from Cyclonus' fire.

Later in the game, you'll likely just default to Optimus Prime, due to his expanded mini-con loadout capabilities.

Added DiffLines:

* TechDemoGame: Melbourne really has outdone themselves on this one. Not only that it has huge levels (not that the GrandTheftAuto games don't have it), but the developers maanged to pull off effects like ''three-dimensional'' grass and still managed to get the game running at 60 frames per second.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Red Alert is not only an Autobot, he's also the [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Digimon Warrior of Metal]] and [[FairlyOddParents Timmy Turner's Fairy Godfather]]. His actor, DaranNorris, later gained a recurring role in WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime as Knockout. He's also on [[ActingForTwo double duty]] as Cyclonus.
** [[GIJoeRenegades Tunnel Rat]]'s Unicron; while both Creator/GaryChalk and DavidKaye reprise their roles as Optimus and Megatron, respectively.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Demolisher was planned to play a sizable role, but he was dropped from the plot entirely.
** The game was also planned to have had a sequel based upon ''TransformersCybertron'', which was a few months into development, but then [[ExecutiveMeddling Atari moved the studio onto another project]], which cancelled the sequel.

A video game based on the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' franchise, simply known as '''Transformers''', but with the working title of '''Prelude To Energon'''. Released in 2004 and developed by the UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}n UsefulNotes/{{Melbourne}} House team, the game is a third person shooter, specifically based upon the ''Anime/TransformersArmada'' series, but not taking place within the same continuity. The basic premise is quite simple and not that indifferent from the show; after fleeing the Autobot/Decepticon war on Cybertron, the Mini-cons are located one million years later. Knowing that they could help turn the tide of the war, both factions head to Earth in order to retrieve them. The player has the opportunity to take control of one of three Autobots; Optimus Prime, Hot Shot and Red Alert, as they explore the many environments across the world searching for Mini-cons. Along they way, they meet opposition from the Decepticons. Once found, the Mini-cons can upgrade the abilities of the Autobots and be manually assigned by the player to mix-and-match a whole set of firepower or defensive capabilities.

Despite a few bugging criticisms, like somewhat repetitive game play, the small roster of characters and sometimes high difficulty level, the game was very well received by both fans and critics alike and until ''VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron'' was released, was often considered to be the best Transformers game made. It also became one of the highest selling games on the PS2, ranking as the 6th highest selling game at the time.

** Ultimately, one of the game's weaker points was recycling about 50% of their dialog from TransformersTheMovie.
