Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Xbox 360) Review
29 September 2009
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.
Conclusion: All in all ROTF isn't a flop and despite it's lackluster Campaign and the hard-to-master controls it's the multiplayer where your skills come in. It's not that good but it sure ain't as bad as the first one. Definetely worth a rent especially if you want some easy G.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I refused to purchase Transformers Revenge of the Fallen for many months. I went to see this movie in the theater and was very disappointment with it. Eventually I determined it was important to do a review of this DVD for Family Friendly Gaming.
Summary: This may surprise you, given that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is rated T for teen, that this is a video game geared toward a younger audience. Now I’m not saying you should go out and buy a copy for a 6 year old (they’re probably busy playing Halo 3 anyway) but for a young man or woman in...
Summary: If you really love Transformers, this game is worth buying. Otherwise, wait until it drops in price a bit and buy it cheap for a quick playthrough or 2.
Pros: -Outstanding visual quality., -Near-perfect voice acting., -All of the primary transformers from the movie are playable., -Fairly long, factoring in both sides of the story., -Simple, yet fun combat.
Cons: -Online play is lacking, to say the least., -Extremely repetitious if played for long periods of time., -Both sides of the story are basically the same.
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.
