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.
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.
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.
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.
Completely different from the PC/PS3/X360 version. It is basically ...

Summary: Completely different from the PC/PS3/X360 version. It is basically an on-rails shooter, where you use the Wii remote as a gun. Very short and very forgettable game. I guess it's OK for a Transformers fan.
Not War for Cybertron but still fun while it lasts
9 June 2012
Summary: This is not war for cybertron but for what it is(on rails shooter/driving game) I had fun playing it, I did beat the whole game in about 5 hours but I had fun during those 5 hours and there are missions and ranks with unlockable artwork to add to raplayability and I did find myself replaying it...
Summary: it is nothing at all like the trailer. you can not turn from vechile to transformer whenever you want and you can't choose where to move plus, you cannot do it in co-op mode. this game is awful
Summary: This is NOT the advertised War For Cybertron. This appears to be a shortened version of it, without so many of the interactions, missions etc. It is still good to play, but a little repeatitive as the console moves your character when in robot mode.
