Summary: I actually can’t think of a worse looking or sounding game on the 360. Several arcade games look better. What Milestone were playing at, I have no idea. It’s massively unfortunate, because " WRC the game " actually plays pretty well. For the tiny fraction of uber-enthusiasts out there, this may just about be enough. But for the casual rally fan, it’s impossible to look past the appalling presentation.
Conclusion: The last time we saw Transformers: The Game in action, we were told that the developers actually used some of the detailed, hi-res character models from the film. While it’s true that the Transformers themselves look great, the rest of the visuals are pretty unimpressive. The environments use a lot of the same assets over and over again, and many of them are far too dark (everything about that awful Hoover Dam level made me mad).
Summary: Parents need to know that this game is rated "Teen" for violence, but most of it is machine versus machine (Decepticon versus Autobot). Transformers can punch, kick, and throw cars at each other; toss enemies into buildings; break off lampposts and swing them like clubs, and so on. There is no blood or gore in the game, not even when you encounter human pedestrians -- the cars simply drive on through without harming them.
Excerpt: Transformers seems to be something that all children of the 80s have in common. Talk to any 20-something guy about favourite childhood cartoons and the action packed adventures of Optimus Prime and his gang of transforming robots will more often than not come up. News of a live action movie brought many fans to their knees, as tears of joy swelled all around them, and a proper next-gen video game caused similar excitement.
Conclusion: Plans of world domination foiled!!! Stay away from it at all costs. You have been warned. Wish I'd never started this terrible game. (somebody out there obviously likes it though, they thumb downed my review. hahaha) UPDATE 4th October 2013: Just discovered I can give it 0.5 stars instead of a whole 1 star.
Conclusion: In addition, the bots can transform just like in
the movies, a very fun feature that’s very
entertaining and will last quite a while. There
are many ways to get through the chapters, and
finding the fastest, most exciting, and most
explosive is very exhilarating. The graphics are
stellar, which is expected of an Xbox 360 game.
The road reflects the sun’s yellowish character,
the bots properly transform as they do in their
Excerpt: Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the movie tie-in game for the upcoming summer blockbuster of the same name. The Transformers brand has enjoyed a rebirth of sorts in the video game industry with last years War for Cybertron – from High Moon Studios and Activision. With this new excitement and momentum from War for Cybertron, video game experts and Transformers fans had high hopes for TF: Dark of the Moon, especially with High Moon and Activision teaming up again.
