Summary: IGN labled this game as a third person shooter. it is not. it is an arcade shooter. what a lame way to explore the world of the Transformers. I think I'm done with Activision, IGN, and Hasbro for a good long while. you know. since they robbed me.
Summary: There is a popular misconception with this game due to its being the same item as the 360, PS3 and PC game War for Cybertron....the title change doesn't mean much does it? Wrong! The Wii version has been the biggest disappointment in a long time for a game. I was expecting this game to be awesome, fantastic, everything i have ever wanted in a transformers game. This is a totally separate game than War for Cybertron in almost every way.
Biggest video game disappointment in as long as I can recall

Summary: This game should embarrass Activision, a company that's been making games for about 30 years. The ONLY thing I liked about it was aiming the sniper rifle, the rest was garbage. First, the game gives you no choices except which campaign you play, Autobot or Decepticon. Once you choose, I thought there would be some kind of character creation page, but no. You use the character they decided was right for the mission.
Summary: After reading the write-up for this game, and watching the trailer, I was very excited to get it. The story-line is very good, and the graphics are so-so. I expected this to be a "free roaming" game, with objectives, like all the other Transformers games I've played...but it's not. You have NO control of your character at all, except duck, aim, and shoot(and steer in alt-mode). Part of the fun of a Transformers game, is being able to TRANSFORM WHEN YOU WANT!!!
Conclusion: This game is simply outrageous. I totally agree with the review above. Gameplay is a nightmare as you can't actually move with the control stick. You can only hide or shoot or change weapon. You can't even transform when you want to. " Transform and roll out "- You can't even do what it says in the phrase. Terribly disappointed. If you are a Transformers fan, please don't get this game on the Wii, get it on another console.
Transform and roll on past this wasted opportunity.....

Conclusion: First off, The listing for this game is incorrect as it is actually "Transformers. Cybertron Adventures.". This is a game made exclusively for the Wii and unfortunately it shows. Sadly the Wii just is not a powerful enough console for this type of game and looks as if it came out about 15 years ago. As for the actual gameplay? This too is not very good at all.
