Cool for a day

Summary: My kids were very thrilled to get this game and played it for about a day and then were utterly bored with it. The play was a bit monotonous and repetitive and they just easily lost interest. I don't play video games but I always watch when they play so I am aware of what they are seeing and participating in and even I was bored after about five minutes. Some games have really intrigued me and I even enjoy watching them play, but this game isn't really one of them.
Not as bad as you think - but clearly a 3 out of 5

Summary: I bought this game to play with my 4 year old son who is a big transformers fan. As far as he's concerned, this game is 5 out of 5. As far as I'm concerned (and having played the PS3 version), it's clearly a 3 out of 5. The problem with this game is it's not advertised correctly. For starters, it's a "shooter on rails" game, meaning all you do is aim the Wii-mote at the screen and shoot the whole time. The game itself decides which direction you go and when.
Summary: First off, I am a HUGE fan of the Transformers '80s series. I hadn't heard much about this game at first, but all I know is that it was supposed to be great. So I bought it the day it came out. Bad mistake. What is a Transformers game without the freedom to transform? A light shooter with characters similar to those of the Transformers series. The graphics were OK and the sound was great, but if you're a hardcore Transformers fan, you WILL be disappointed.
Love Transformers, Not too Impressed with the Game

Summary: Although I am a die-hard fan of Transformers I find the game really aimed for a much younger audience (maybe I ought to consider Transformers as a whole for a younger audience you say? Nay!). The game leaves little in the way of real options for the player. You pretty much just have to shoot and hold down an accelerator every now and again. Not the most challenging of games. But maybe I should have been looking to a different game for that.
Summary: It's fun but there is not much freedom to do what you want in this game. It is like a classic Arcade First Person Shooter where you don't control your guy most of the time, rather he automatically runs from wall to wall and you shoot at your enemies. Between areas you turn into a car or plane and drive/fly in a pre-determined line to the next stage. The story is pretty cool and it has a lot of side stories and challenges that add to its replay value.
Summary: I have had a chance to play three versions of the game. I bought the DS version at the local GameStop, ordered the Wii version from Amazon, and a friend of mine has the PS3 version. The Wii version is the worst. The game is advertised as an action game, but really all you are getting is a rail shooter. I gave the game a 3 star rating because as a rail shooter, it's average, but as an action game, I would actually rate it a 1.
Summary: Si "Transformers The Game" nos permitía jugar con cierta libertad, aunque ésta no fuera del todo absoluta, en esta ocasión eso desaparece por completo; estamos ante un juego de navegación automática, también conocida como a raíles o "rail shooter", mezclado con partes tanto de conducción como de naves, aunque seguimos sin libertad, tan sólo para chocarnos o que nos disparen y morir antes de tiempo. Entonces, ¿qué nos ofrece este título?
