    "Transformers: The Game" is not THAT bad. It has gleaming graphics with good lighting textures. It's only the repetitive campaign, uninspired story, and a lack of multiplayer that pulls this game out of the "good game" lane.

    This game has everything an action gamer could ask for. Fast cars, big explosions, and exaggerated physics. In how many games can you say that you can throw a bus at a giant robot? Visually it's presentable and the game play is somewhat repetitive but is fairly entertaining.

    I don't know what game the reviewers were playing, or how, after correctly identifying the gameplay as "somewhat shallow" (a huge understatement), they can go on to give it 84. 84!! This game just isn't fun. You walk around shooting with 2 buttons. That's it. The sound effects? Tinny and terrible. The graphics? passable, as long as you don't look too closely.

Each board consists of killing X number of guys to proceed or getting someplace within a certain amount of time. Boring and frustrating. Don't pay for this one. Collapse

    Well... to be honest, the graphics were just mediocre and they do look a little blurred even without the effects on. The sounds are still nice to listen to and the concept is great, being able to transform at will, destructable worlds and all. I find if kind of weird that you need to throw objects on certain enemies in order to defeat them. Also, your guns will be practically useless most Well... to be honest, the graphics were just mediocre and they do look a little blurred even without the effects on.

I find if kind of weird that you need to throw objects on certain enemies in order to defeat them. Also, your guns will be practically useless most of the time. Transformer fans would sure get a whole lot of fun out of this action packed game, that is if they have the endurance to complete the entire game even though it is deemed as relatively short. Oh yea, the CG movies were awefully detailed too. Well, the most problematic thing is probably the driving mechanism. You seem to be driving on ice, so whole a lot of missions in which you need to chase, persuit, escape, reach in time, will prove to be a chore to complete. Perhaps a 6.5 would be more appropriate. I expected more from this game seeing the fairly high scores it got from above. The movie was ingenius though. Expand

    The only redeeming thing is the cool looking graphics. Otherwise, complete waste of time. Buggy controls, annoying camera, horrible collision detection, bad level design, plays like it's on rails.

    Cool concept, poorly done... The animations really do suck, and so does the sounds. But the graffix are ok.. I give it a 3, just because i love Transformers.

    While a game where you are two storey high Transformers rampaging around town sounds great, the developers of this game suck out all the fun with tedious and ridiculous "chapters", awful controls, and a general lack of any refinement in a rush to get this out the door for the movie release.

A very good example of how bad the industry has gotten when you look at the money that went into this game, versus what came out the other end. The graphics are nice for sure, but that doesn't count for much when you are turning the game off in disgust. Expand

    The only bit of the game that really holds up or is worth the money is the bit where you change from robot to car/aircraft/ect and back. Other than that, it's not worth the money, except maybe for diehard fans.

    Designed to look good in screenshots, actually so terrible Its indescribable. Avoid at all costs. The pedestrians are particle effects, the combat is boring, the enemies are idiotic, the cutscenes forget to play most of the time, and its just plain terrible.

    While the combat is enjoyable, the game overall is bland and rushed. The controls are almost non-responsive, and if you climb on a building and look at say, a park, you'll find that the park is an almost Minecraft-ish block of land with no curves at all. I could have done that on Paint, and they have it in a high production game. Pah.

    This game has both good and bad. The missions of the game are unbalanced. Some of the missions are so easy and repetitive while some are hard and frustrating. The last battle against Megatron in the Autobot Campaign is so easy that it doesn't feel like an epic showdown at all. Nevertheless it had some great battles.

(More battles than the movie itself) Another pro is that the Transformers themselves. There are lots of Giant Alien robots with special weapons and vehicle modes as playable or fight against and also most of them have dialogues and special scenes which is something the movie lacks. (Except Ratchet who only appear in 2 cutscenes of the game.) Also with good freeroaming in different environments, additional tasks to do and collectibles to find, this game was enjoyable and worth spending time on. Expand

  1. While the gameplay is somewhat shallow, and the racing elements sometimes frustrating, there is plenty to say about getting a Transformers game with high production value and an all-star voice team. Activision and Traveller’s Tales have brought the new movie to life with a decent beat-em-up title that doesn’t succumb to the movie tie-in curse.
  2. Transformers doesn't make any radical changes to the classic action game genre, but it does have likeable characters and top-notch production values, coupled with enjoyable gameplay.
  3. It’s about on par with all other movie licensed games: relatively short, decent graphics, decent gameplay, and not much value to it.
