Brayden is completely obsessed with his Nintendo DS so we are always on the hunt for new games that he'll enjoy. Well, because he is equally as obsessed with Transformers, I knew Transformers Prime would be a hit... And, of course, I was right!
Even though he has only been playing Transformers Prime for a few weeks he easily mastered it. He can play it on his own without the help of his dad, which doesn't happen with a lot of games. Yes, there is some violence but if you let your kids watch Transformers then the violence is nothing new.
Overall, we give this game a big thumbs up!
