Hmm... while the game wasn't worthy of my soiled pants, I humbly disagree that it had control issues. The problems I had with the game were mostly design issues, like the fact that your weapons could only destroy drones. Had someone gave me this game in 1990, it probably would've went down into my top list of all time favorites... but... well it's not 1990 so I (and we) have become accustomed to a much higher standard of interactivity in gaming.
The game was fun though, once you realize it's more of a robot wrestling game, and you still get pretty good graphics combined with nice transformations. I finished the Autobot campaign but barely started the Decepticon one, which is what most reviewers said was most fun so maybe I should put Halo 3 down for a while and finish it.
