Summary: I got this game 2 days ago and i'm going to return it. The game is not like the movie. You do things that never even happened in the movie. Controls are crap. The driving is horrible. The five different moves to fight with(3 punch combo and 2 different guns). The graphics are stingy. You don't know what do to on your in a mission. The lock-on aiming is crap it doesnt work.
Summary: Ok, I got this game the first day it came out because I saw the great movie. I was greatly disappointed. the graphics were pretty good, but that didn't stop me. There were no difficulty levels so the game was really easy. It took me like 2 days to beat. What really bugged me was that you couldn't be frenzy (shockwave), brawl, ratchet or bone crusher. Brawl and bone crusher were my two favorite characters.
Conclusion: Even for a massive fan like myself , this was unbelievably disappointing , everything about this game is simply rubbish and it's a huge waste of time , the last transformers game was a complete JOY to play and like most fans of that , we where hoping for something along a similar line , but with this being a movie spin off , its simply trash , the developers should frankly be ashamed of themselves .
I'll remember this forever, for the wrong reasons.

Conclusion: Let's face it, translations from the silver screen to the consoles never really go that well, do they? Occasionally, a few slip through the net (Chronicles of Riddick) but Transformers is not one of those. Hilarious in the wrong way, the awful graphics and gameplay manage to overshadow the terrible story implementation and laughable mission design. A cynical rush job that will no doubt seel well due to it's licence. Potentially, this could have been great.
Conclusion: Absolutely loved the film, always have been a Transformers fan since a boy...but this is the biggest disappointment ever! Comeplete waste of time! Everything is repetative from the word go...drive/fly around, find some Transformers, throw something at them, kill 'em, drive off and start over! Pointless..
Conclusion: For some reason I decided to buy this on an exceptionally bored weekend and I have to say the first five minutes were alright.... then i played the next five minutes, felt like I'd done this somewhere before.... strange that? But in any case I played on.... and I realised what this game boils down to.... and that is.... drive, drive, drive, say"oh no a bad guy", throw bus, punch punch, throw bus, punch, drive away.
Conclusion: This game was a real let down. How could anyone mess-up a game based on transformers. The movie was tip-top and the CGI was through the roof. But the game unfortunately was the opposite. The game play was bad, the missions were even worse and the enemies & AI was terrible. I guess the game is almost worthy of being Â£15.99. The only good thing is that you can transform in and out on demand of pressing Y.
