Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Video Game Generation
15 January 2012
Summary: Transformers: Dark of the Moon
serves as a textbook demonstration how video games based on movies or franchised licensed properties are seldom if ever a good thing. Even if the developers were responsible for a decent game in the past, and in this case,
even if said game involved the same licensee
Pros: Voices are still done by some of the original cast.
Cons: To be perfectly blunt, Optimus is getting a bit long in the tooth – you can really hear the dentures clicking away whenever he gets a line., Transformers look incredibly stupid, not to mention generic and nearly indistinguishable. Just like the last few decades of offerings from the auto industr...
Excerpt: Transformers: Dark of the Moon is very pretty; the environments are lush and the models are detailed, although, since I haven't seen the movie yet, I can't speak to how accurate the models actually are.

Excerpt: Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the third game in the Transformers movie-based series. Unlike the first two games, Dark of the Moon is developed by High Moon Studios, the development team behind the popular War for Cybertron games.

Conclusion: The game was rushed, plain and simple. No one expected High Moon Studios to pull off a miracle in a year but I did expect a bit more polish. If you want a great Transformers game, check out War for Cybertron , it's also a fraction of the price.
Summary: With Transformers: Dark of the Moon , High Moon Studios has arguably faced its toughest and lowest-aspiring challenge yet; a movie tie-in. They’ve proven they know how to make a good game based on a film (even if it is technically based upon another piece of the franchise).
