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: 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...
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.
Review: Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Sony PlayStation 3)
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...
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.
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
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.
What do Optimus Prime and Stephen Colbert Have in Common?

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).
