    Sometimes it could be a nice game experience transforming from robot into car, but not for an extended period of time.

    As a fan of the Transformers since the very first episode in 1984, I couldn't help but feel disappointment when playing Dark of the Moon – Autobots. The license deserves so much more.

    It's a pretty bland campaign. The accompanying multiplayer mode adds a mild amount of extra interest, but it gets old pretty quickly.

    Even their signature vehicle forms are samey. [Aug 2011, p.74]

    Mediocre at best. There are a few positive aspects, like the voice acting and the missions. Unfortunately there are more things in the game (like anything else) that will drive you insane.

    Local wireless matches add a solid perk, but otherwise Dark of the Moon is a step down from previous entries, and a waste of the beloved license. [Aug 2011, p.90]

    A rather horrible game and a waste of money. Both Autobot and Decpeticon versions are mediocre and a very large step back considering allA rather horrible game and a waste of money. Both Autobot and Decpeticon versions are mediocre and a very large step back considering all other transformers games for the platform. All you do in the game is run around an environment which hardly changes and shoot Autobots or Decepticons depending on which game you purchased. you can go and find upgrade slots which are used in the upgrades section to improve your characters endurance and firepower. other than that the game is the same all the way through. if any upside it would be the voice acting. the controls are awkward and there is no sense of challenge in the game other than avoiding being killed be Autobots. the graphics had minimal effort put into them and are clearly a lot worse than that of the other transformers games for Nintendo DS. Overall summary. bad graphics, no challenge, awkward controls, repetitive environment, only saving grace is voice acting. Expand
