Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Before the review begins, I feel it's my duty to warn anybody who considers purchasing this -- there's barely any mention of the Moon at all. In fact, the Moon appears in the campaign's end credits more than it appears in the game itself. Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a big lie.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (PS3)

ccgr.org
13 August 2013
  • 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. With a new gameplay style, good graphics, and great sound, Transformers: Dark of the Moon takes a completely different approach that makes it perhaps the best of the movie-based games.
  • Pros: Very fun gameplay, special moves add variety, colorful and detailed gameplay graphics, epic sounding soundtrack and voice-overs
  • Cons: Not as fun as the War for Cybertron games, story could have been better and longer, graphics look ugly on specific parts

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 , movie tie-in games will stay true to their cynically low rent marketing origins.
  • 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 industry., Short game., Another unspeakably bad movie tie-in., What happened to Escalation mode?

Transformers: Dark of the Moon Review

VideoGamer.com
27 December 2011
  • Excerpt: The life of a developer in charge of a movie tie-in is fraught with peril, and up on the chopping block today is High Moon Studios. It's had less than a year to make an entire game based on that Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie they've got coming out - you know, that franchise from the cartoon with the toys doing all that robot stuff - which obviously is quite stressful in itself.

Review: Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Sony PlayStation 3)

Diehard GameFAN
20 December 2011
  • Summary: Transformers: Dark of the Moon gives fans a chance to play a lead in game to the film. Basically a stripped and repainted version of War For Cybertron , this game offers a less compelling and shorter story mode, a completely gutted multiplayer selection and nothing really all that new to compel someone to pick this up.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Playstation Illustrated
17 November 2011
  • 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. Still, they all have an appearance similar to the first Michael Bay Transformers movie, so I expect that the models are pretty close. The one thing I found a bit odd is that almost every transformer in the game transformed into a land vehicle (i.e., car or truck)...

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: conflict, but is content to jump between the two. Borrowing heavily from the Transformers: Battle for Cybertron system that came out last year, this title showcases a few tweaks but limits the action to Earth. (So much for the fun locales of an ever-changing robot planet) The game plays from the behind the back 3rd person perspective – so you keep your Charge directly in front of the camera as you battle through your terrains.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

The Gamers Temple
5 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Since I started writing for gamerstemple.com about six years ago, I’ve taken on the role of the Transformers go-to guy. If a movie, DVD or game starring the robots in disguise came out during that time period, you can bet I was the one to review it. This didn’t always fare to well, as Transformers games that are actually good are few and far between.

What do Optimus Prime and Stephen Colbert Have in Common?

17 July 2011
  • 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.
