    A repetetive and broken third person shooter in which you run around as a giant robot killing other giant robots. Or just the one giant robot whos a bit harder. Or escort some people while fending off some more giant robots. Or fly/drive around smashing into glowing objective markers. That basically sums up the whole campaign, which revolves around the aforementioned missions. The good bits from the first game, like the freeroam and destruction, are gone, replaced with boring level design coupled with almost no destruction. Shooting is twitchy, due to the fact that you have to hold down the 'pull out gun' control then fire, and melee isn't all that fun. Transforming is great and all and the driving has greatly improved from the last game, there is no longer the nitro and drift and jump mechanics that made it feel like a driving game (a poorly designed one, however). Now, transforming is simply sprinting, which is a good thing as theres not so many details that the design team didn't have enough time to make it.
    Multiplayer is sub-par, with a decent mathcmaker but only 4v4 matches. There is no progression and some characters are too powerful, though all feel the same in terms of handling.

    Just as the movie is, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" is a terrible, terrible game. First it was loosely installed within my computer, possibly because of the lack of updates and patches those **** forgot to make. Not only that; the multiplayer servers are empty and disorganized, the campaign is too repetitive and monotonous etc. This is a game you would definitely love to miss.

    worst game i have bought so far. sure, the graphics were great, the multiplayer was okay, but it was. so. repetitive. the A.I was terrible, and there was no proper cut scenes throughout the terrible single player campaign: it was just a bunch of robots standing around and talking. the upgrade mechanic used in the single player campaign would of been better off been used in the multiplayer, but no. the lack of a proper free roam (and not to mention, the lack of destructible environments found present in the first game) is just insulting; the first one was just so much better. in this game's "free roam", you can choose to do free roam in Tokyo, Egypt, etc, but they are small, and are deserted. you can do longer run around, blowing up buildings, throwing cars at other cars, attack the army that are sent to destroy you (if you destroy stuff), and the random robot fight. there is little-to-no presence of life in the free roam section. the multiplayer is kind of fun, but it is lacking in things that actually make it worth while to play. and plus there are lots of little kids. the only thing that was fantastic about the game was the fact that you could unlock shows from the original TV series. the first game was so much better. however, it seems that activision doesn't give a damn about quality, and, as usual, only gives a damn about the quantity.

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen comes up short in a number of categories, due in large part to its repetition, odd control layout, poor AI and almost total lack of presentation. Running around and just shooting stuff has its merits, though it does get old after a bit.
  2. If you are looking to play a game to get the experience of multiplayer while not actually being online, this may be the game you’ve been looking for.
  3. Action. That's very much what we're going to find in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, a good action game that offer an interesting multiplayer mode. The graphic engine's just fine, same thing with the sound and it's strange voice acting. It's an interesting game if you're looking to have some fun, but that's very much all what we're going to find in this latest film adaptation.
