  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Easy to control and jump into, the game itself suffers from missions schemes that are not out of the ordinary. The missions are of the ‘been-there-done-that’ variety.

    Ok, Ian, no game is worth 0/10. Seriously. This game is not worth 0/10. I've played LOADS of worse games than this, but, I confess I haveOk, Ian, no game is worth 0/10. Seriously. This game is not worth 0/10. I've played LOADS of worse games than this, but, I confess I have played better games than this. When you first play it you will find it tremoundously fun, as you knock robts into buildings and watch them crumble, but soon you start to see little cracks in the game design... 1)While the graphics do look nice, some textures and car models are extremely bland.2) The physics can be awful; hit a car at about 20 mph in vehicle mode, and it will go flying into a building. If you smah a building the rubble will fall like pieces of foam. 3) The missions are constantly repeated, but with different transformers in them. 4) You would of thought tanks would be extremely armoured, wouldn't you? Well not in Transformers the game's case, since they've obviously used the same script they used for the car, but with a different coating. Touch it and it will set on fire. And then you see the helicopters, about 5 times as hard to destroy as tanks. Strange.

    Sure it has all these problems, but you will always find joy out knocking an enemy into a building, or finding the last allspark piece, or using a tree to play golf with the tree as the club and random passing cars as the golf-ball, or finding the nuclear power plant place where there are loads of exploding barrels, and knocking an enemy into them, and sitting back and watching the fireworks, or even cruising around, looking at everything. The game has a lot to suck up, although the bad things about it would want to make you spew it all out again. A pretty decent game, if flawed, and some fun, for a while. 7/10.
