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.
Summary: There are very few games based on movies that end up very good. Often times all you can hope for is a nice average game, Transformers is unfortunately not even an average game. I see no point to going into a great detail about all the high and low points of this game, other than the fact that the high point list would be pretty short. This game was awful, the controls, story, mission, everything.
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME PLAYING THIS JUNK!!! The movie was great but this game is TRASH!

Summary: I wanted Transformers the video game to be as good as the movie but I was wrong. There is nothing good about Transformers the video game. The graphics would be considered good if they were on the PS1 and there's not a lot to do with your Transformer. All you do is punch and shoot. Your not allowed to shoot people only buildings and vehicles. Hardly any people talk through the game. The cutscenes are short and boring so you won't miss anything if you skip the scenes.
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.
Transformers roll out!...... and into trade in pile

Conclusion: This is for sure the worst game i have had the missfortune of playing on my xbox. I dont have the will to play it. Poor gameplay, poor graphics and by far the WORST cut scenes in any game......... EVER! please for your own sanity do not buy this game.
