    Transformers 3 gives the player a nice sense of freedom, since you can transform anytime you want. The single player campaing is short but challenging, you can upgrade your weapons and abilities and the graphics are well done. What a pity the action is very repetitive.

    Transformers 3 is an overall average action game for you iPhone: what really stands out is a good powerup system that will grant you the chance to customize your autobot in the best way for blasting away those not-so-nice Decepticons. A worthy purchase if you're a fan of the brand.

    Replay value is fairly low, save for the opportunity to pick up any missing achievements. There are 3 difficulty levels, so you could try to play through on a harder level, but we don't anticipate doing so.

    Just not as good as we'd expected it to be. Less than meets the eye, you might say.

    While the iOS version of Dark of the Moon isn't the worst Transformers game in recent memory, it's a textbook example of copy and paste level design. The enemies just aren't entertaining or challenging to fight, making the repetitive levels exasperating rather than something I could look forward to.

    Transformers: Dark of the Moon is exactly what you'd expect it to be - a shallow excuse to shoot bad-guys in the face with your space-robot.

    Unfortunately it's one of those mediocre movie games with standard graphics and gameplay.

    Fans of the franchise will enjoy this game, as will fans of shooters, but I fear there is little to keep anyone interested for very long. Each level only takes 10-20 minutes to complete, and the game can easily be beaten in a day.

    It all gets repetitive quickly. [Oct 2011, p.96]

    Even the most dedicated Transformers fans will likely feel let down by this one, perhaps being left wishing they'd transformed their dollars into something else instead.

    As tired a Transformers tie-in as you're ever likely to see, EA's Dark of the Moon soon descends into repetition, and is far too tedious as a result.

    Transformers: Dark of the Moon is just about as interesting as the movies have become, which is to say, not very interesting.

    You can toss Transformers: Dark of the Moon onto the pile (it's more of a mountain, really) of terrible movie based video games. It's one thing to see this from the likes of Activision, but with EA's success on the App Store, we expected better.
