Conclusion: Now this is a game you can flip a coin for. This game has fans pumped and most people bumped. while i wasn't a huge transformers fan previous to this game, this game is awsome! The game play is cool featuring all of our favourite autobots and decepticons including optimus prime, and megatron. also some new faces such as bumblebee, the protaginist in the movie.
Summary: People are being harsh with this game, imo. I loved Transformers as a kid and I looked forward to this game/ and movie. That said, neither is disappointing. No, this is NOT a Chronicles of Riddick, but my kids are having fun with it. Its probably more kid-oriented because the kids seem to like it more than me. The gameplay lacks a little bit. For instance, the cars are hard to control, etc. The graffix are great, though.
Conclusion: This game is not going to be the best game you play, but it's not a bad game by any means. However, most G1 Transformers fans will probably love it simply because you can unlock the G1 Megatron and Optimus Prime to play as during the game. After playing with G1 Megatron, I feel that alone was worth the $60 for the game. Gameplay is repetitious but fun. Some parts can be frustrating, but equally as rewarding when they are finally accomplished. The graphics are very good.
