Summary: Let me cut to the chase. This game is not very good. The cutscenes were lazily animated, the physics engine was cut-rate, and the gameplay was frustrating and repetitive. Pros: - Good melee animations and slowdown upon melee kills - Area-based freeplay for those who want to mess around and blow stuff up until they feel like moving the story forward - Semi-destructible environment Cons: -Featherweight objects (walking into a car makes it tumble end over end 100 ft away) -...
Summary: The only real positive about this game is the graphics. The transformers look very nice in all their detail. The transformation is great to look at too. Going from vehicle to robot and back again is a repeatable enjoyment as long as you're not involved in a mission. The worst part of this game is the camera work/targeting scheme. This is revealed best when you're recovering the All Spark as Bumblebee.
Don't buy it. Funding horrible games makers gives them an OK for making them

Summary: I bought this game when it first came out. I paid $75 for it at Wally World. It will be the first and last movie themed game ever. This game is run on some game engine that although appears to be like a sandbox, it's very limited. Graphics were ok, but gameplay gets 1/5 stars. Everything elses was pretty bad too.
Summary: The game seemed cool...until the second chapter. I always get irritated when game-makers create characters and situations so difficult to control that it's nearly impossible to complete a task. Challenging players is fine; frustrating them is not. Thank god I only payed $10 for this one.
Summary: This game came with the Xbox 360 my wife bought for me on ebay so I thought I'd give it a try. While it is fun driving through the streets and then transforming into a giant robot, the missions in this game are mind numbingly dumb and frustrating. Guess my biggest complaint is when you're fighting the bosses, you have a very small green area that you have to fight in. Get outside the area for a few seconds, and you're going to have to repeat the mission.
Conclusion: This is probably the worse game I owned, what a waste of money. The people behind this game should be jailed. Firstly, the action is boring, repetitive, meaningless and some cases, extremely diffculty that it verges on impossibility - this is the most fustrating part. If it was easy, at least the mindless, boring action headed somewhere, the difficulty made this game a great waste of time.
Conclusion: I had read reviews on this game and seen the videos prior to renting it (for free on Blockbuster Rewards). I will say that I am glad that I did not pay for this game. It has a very cool premise; Transformers, being able to control one and transform at will is awesome, but it does not deliver in playability and visuals. The voice over work is steller (thanks to Peter Cullen - the original Prime and Frank Welker - the voice of Megatron from the old cartoons).
Conclusion: This game was horrible. I am a huge Transformers fan, and this junk of a video game is pure injustice. The positives include the audio and the individual robot detail. The cutscenes were cool..... This game set video games back to 2002 when it was common to press 1 button to fight your way through the game - - Punch Punch Kick - - Punch Punch Kick. After the first 3 drones you kill, you will find yourself bored into oblivion.
