Anyways...to the point of this. The game is completely a vehicle only game. You switch back and for between car and stealth mode (hence the name Stealth Force Edition). There is a story mode and a co-op mode. After you beat missions you can go back and play them in the mission mode. You get to play as 4 Autobots (Bumblebee, Optimus, Mirage, and Ironhide), 4 Decepticons (Lockdown, Crowbar, Megatron, and Soundwave). I've only played about 6 levels so far.
When you choose story mode, you practice first with Mirage (he has an Italian accent). Wheeljack is in the game but you only hear him talk (so far). He sounds like Perceptor from the G1 cartoon series. Then, on to the game. You start the real mission with Bumblebee. You cannot choose you character. Each character is chosen for what ever mission they're suited for. Also, there are no campaigns. As you play, the story switches back and forth from Autobot to Decepticon point of view. Other characters include Stratosphere from the ROTF toy line.
In most missions, you must race around and destroy enemies and collect Energon and Stealth points so you don't die or run out of missiles. These items generate quickly throughout the mission. The missions are small and some offer timed races where you have to collect items before time runs out. So far there is a desert mission and a Detroit city mission. It looks like there is a Siberian Snow mission (i haven't finished the game yet).
The voices of the characters are good. Peter Cullen does Prime of course. The music sounds like the music from the PS2 and Wii versions of ROTF.
Graphics aren't that good. The Sound effects aren't that good either, especially the sound the missiles make when you shoot them. The animated cinema scenes in between missions...well. They are drawings of the characters that don't really move, maybe an arm raises or a head turns. There is no CGI animation at all.
The game gets really repetitive and as far as i can tell so far, there are no unlockables or awards. I haven't played co-op yet, probably wait till my wife gets home from work to try that. Control is okay, except when you're in Stealth mode. You're slower and it's harder to turn around. You'll need a nunchuck with you Wii Remote.
Overall, not worth $49.99...wait for it to get to the discount bin or used section. I just don't understand why the Wii gets the crappy versions. Maybe i'll get a PS3 one day to get the better versions. If you like race car games or games like Twisted Metal, then you'll probably like this. On a positive note, the Wii version comes with a Stealth Force Mini-Bumblebee figurine. So, you can still have fun with the toy after you've given up on the game.
The only places i saw it were at Gamestop (behind the counter) and wal-mart (only the Nintendo DS version)

I am, my PSN is the same as my user name on here.
EB Games / Gamestop usually calls when the games are in for people to pick them up. Mine didn't call last night so I figure I'd go in anyways because as far as I knew today was the release date. But the guy said they didn't even get them in which is why they didn't call. He said Friday, but I'm hoping Thursday at the latest.
