Transformers: Dark of the Moon (PS3)
21 November 2011
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
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)...
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). The Bourne Conspiracy was a fantastic voyage into the world of Bourne , letting you perfectly experience the feel of being the ex-agent.
Excerpt: Fans of robots in disguise listen up! What we have here is the tie in to the latest in the Transformers movies by Michael Bay, Dark of the Moon. In this little shindig you'll have the chance to play the roles of your favourite 'bots, fight some pretty cool little battles, and feel like you are part of something greater than your everyday life.
