Excerpt: The PSP version of Transformers: The Game does not make the best first impressions. You are thrown into action as Optimus Prime chases down Bumblebee and takes on Decepticon drones. The action is there, but the controls definitely are not.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: The good presentation is a gimmie and the inclusion of the original Optimus Prime makes persons such as myself a very happy chappie. But it's just a really, really bad game. Insufferable tripe and well worth your hard-earned ignorance.
Conclusion: Overall, I would have to say that the PSP version was really a letdown. Aside from the counterintuitive controls, the backsliding graphics, and the very short play time, I would just say that I felt completely disappointed by my Transformers: The Game experience on my PSP.
Excerpt: After playing the two console versions of Transformers, both of which were nearly identical, I thought it'd be nice to see the different PSP version, seeing as how it was done by another developer and has different features.
Conclusion: Ranging from moments that made me want to chuck the system out the window because of crushing boredom or infuriating rage, no part of this game demonstrates something that hasn't already been trounced by a better offering somewhere else. Stay away.
Excerpt: Huge, marauding robots transforming into vehicles fighting over the fate of the world boiled down to the simplest corners of good and evil. So simple, so pure, so awesome, and so seemingly easy to transpose to the realm of video games.
Summary: Transformers: The Game lets gamers control the outcome in the battle for Earth as they choose to protect it as Autobots or destroy it as Decepticons. Players will also experience the unstoppable power and massive scale of their favorite Robots in Disguise such as Bumblebee, Barricade and others.
