There are only 4 players instead of up to 6.
Each player gets a "leader" piece that can transform and have different special abilities for if it is in vehicle or person form.
There are "moving" locations that provide other special things during the game.
The game takes place over 6 "days" or rounds instead of until the death.
You get to pick your locations at the beginning instead of the randomization of the cards.
There are cards that give you special abilities instead of saving them to trade in for extra armies.
Now, the changes are kind of fun and can be entertaining, but overall, the novelty wears off and leaves wanting to play the original Risk instead. If you are a Risk fan and you can get it for cheap, give it a shot, but if you have never played Risk before, this is just a dumbed down version that is not nearly as fun or exciting, but it can still be somewhat entertaining.
This could be useful for getting some younger kids into the game. They might find it more fun.
To sum up, if it is cheap and you love Risk, go for it, but I would not spend more than 10 bucks max for this.
Very often when there is a series of games, the various sequels fail to offer variety; they are simply a rehash of the previous game employing a different setting. (Carcassone, Monopoly, Trans America/Europe, etc.) While other series present gamers with a different experience with every new edition. (Settlers, Command & Colors, etc.) Fortunately, for fans of Risk, each new game varies significantly from previous releases. Each of the games has a unique feel. Strategies that are rote in one game are completely inefficient in another. Such is the case with Risk Transformers. Consider the following:
Classic Risk - The original game has been surpassed by it's siblings in almost every way but the last edition (2003) presents the best version of Mission Risk to date and a terrific two player scenario.
Castle Risk - Total chaos, no real cohesiveness.
Napoleon - Very serious it is an attempt to introduce historical scenarios into the Risk format.Read more ›
Some versions of Risk like the Star Wars versions were OK, but not great with a noticeably lack of effort in designing the game. Transformers Risk version is of much higher quality than some of the themed Risk games. The board and cards are nicely done. It is a shorter version of Risk which is great, games can take hour, but do not go on forever. This version is simple compared to other themed versions, and it is well designed. The Transformer leaders are nice, and each uses a different strategy. This is a good version for 2 players, and of course 3 or 4 players works better.

I own many variations of Risk. This is not one of the good ones - fair at best. The pieces are small, the board is unspectacular. Read morePublished 24 months ago by Winston C. Lee
