The plot involves the Decepticons intercepting a mysterious meteor that is approaching the Earth, and the Autobots arrive to try and thwart the Decepticons’ plans. A massive eruption of power during the battle on the meteor breaks out, and the Autobots become separated from Jack, Miko and Raf, who are monitoring them at base. Unknown to the Autobots and their human friends, the Decepticons have uncovered Thunderwing, an ancient being that they will use to try to take over the Earth.

Over the course of the game there will be different locations as well as different battles along the way. Some may include having to rescue the kids from the dreaded Decepticons. Others may involve having to find pieces of the great and powerful Thunderwing. Eventually though the main rivals of the characters are defeated including Airachnid, Knock Out, Dreadwing, Starscream, and Soundwave by Arcee, Bulkhead, Bumblebee, Ratchet, and Optimus but Thunderwing is revived by the very end of the chapters. In the end the children are rescued and a final stand off with Megatron occurs leading into the battle with Thunderwing to determine the fate of Earth itself.
