Transformers Revenge of the Fallen
Family Friendly Gaming

Excerpt: Transformers Revenge of the Fallen is the officially licensed video game from the Summer blockbuster movie of the same name. Since the movie received less than pleasant reviews (and after seeing it I can see why), I was eager to find out how the video game would fair.
Excerpt: I've yet to see the latest Transormers movie, having had my hopes dashed by friends claiming it's a huge disappointment. As a life-long fan of the original cartoon and comics the first big-budget Michael Bay movie managed to tick most of the right boxes, but the game failed on almost every count. Activision claimed to be righting many of the wrongs found in the 2007 game, so my hopes were raised. Could Revenge of the Fallen actually be pretty good?
Excerpt: Movie based games have always had the reputation of being ‘stinkers’. Incomplete, rushed and full of glitches are words often used to describe even some of the most promising movie based titles. So when Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen for the Xbox 360 arrived at my home office I kept my expectations in check as I typically do with these types of games.
Conclusion: When you first start out, the game is a ton of fun, as getting to romp around the city as a Transformer, in robot and vehicle form, and kick butt for whichever side you like, is as close to pure video game pleasure as you can get. But when it quickly becomes clear that there's not much more to do, besides romp some more and kick a bit more butt, the thrill subsides, only returning when you take your game online for multiplayer fun (though the inclusion of some G1...
Excerpt: Less than meets in the eye – a phrase that could easily be applied to the first video game tie-in to Michael Bay’s action-heavy robot opus, Transformers .

In truth, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a much more focused project than it’s movie counterpart.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Xbox 360) Review

Summary: Revenge of the Fallen is definitely better than the movie. That's the first major relief. If you're looking for a game that you can pick up and dive right in, this isn't it. If you've got time and patience and can dedicate both to a game that, ultimately, you may not find worth the effort...go nuts. ROTF is not a BAD game, but it could have been GREAT with some of the control issues ironed out and a bit more attention to detail with graphics and sound.
Xbox 360 Review - 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'
3 July 2009
Summary: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen propels players straight into an adrenaline-pumping battle for supremacy across the globe where every second and every choice makes the difference between mankind's salvation and annihilation.
Conclusion: The game isn't downright awful, but there is little to distinguish it from any other action game we've seen, save the Transformers brand attached to it. Yet another movie tie-in with endless possibilities, that does not take advantage of anything it's given.
