Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen PS3 Review
29 May 2010
Excerpt: Licensed games aren’t necessarily targeted towards the more avid of gamers. Such games are often free of challenge and devoid of the invention that so many gamers seek. But on the whole, for the less demanding they do their job (at least to an adequate level) of allowing those fresh from perhaps seeing a movie to not only take charge of characters, but also allow them to relive and be personally involved in memorable moments from them.
Conclusion: The game is glitchy, dull, and kinda broken. The game never comes together as a full game, but rather a fragmented mess of scrap metal and motor oil. Unless you are a completionist and enjoy the timed challenge, you won't find much to this game.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is With the summer well underway, you can either do two things in Dubai – flock to the malls or head to the cinemas for the latest summer blockbusters. And of course, hot on the heels of the movie releases comes the infernal slew of video games based on movies. For as long as I can remember, I have yet to review a video game that does the movie justice, or at least comes close to it.
Excerpt: Two years ago I reviewed the first Transformers game and found it to be one of the worst games the generation had seen thus far. It was the status-quo movie-licensed game: it looked awful, it played awful, it sounded awful, and it was without question rushed to all hell and back. I had thought that with more powerful game consoles we'd see the end of the craptacular licensed game, but I was wrong.
Conclusion: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a fun game with complex controls. By the time most players learn them; they'll feel frustrated and find their entertainment elsewhere. The repetitive nature of the missions only furthers that negativity. I like what Luxoflux did with the unlockables to spice things up, but in the end a game's play engine must be the most important aspect of development. The minute it starts to fall down; the entire package is taken with it.
