  1. This bland, uninspired adventure will probably make your wrist hurt. Fortunately, it's over quickly.

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has close to zero redeeming qualities. I only say "close to" in case I actually forgot something, though at the moment, I can't think of any. Well, I guess the almost complete lack of Shia Labeouf is one thing.
  3. In truth, there is absolutely nothing good about Revenge of the Fallen on the Wii. From the horrible graphics, sound, controls, camera and value I could not find a single meaningful positive thing to say about this game. This is yet another poorly made videogame adaptation that should have never been made.
  4. The game is unforgivably short, looks bad, the waggle controls hurt, and the game forces players to do too much melee.
  5. 40
    This game only exists to feed the marketing machine, and as such isn't a dreadful game, but it isn't enjoyable either.
  6. The controls were raw at best, and infuriating at worst. The graphics are workable, but not stunning. The game play was repetitive and drab.

    I didn't entirely enjoy the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. the same can also be said for this version of the video game. the storyI didn't entirely enjoy the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. the same can also be said for this version of the video game. the story of the game is like taking the movie plot and excluding the human characters. while it is better than the movie plot, it isn't by much. in the end, the plot is kind of bland. the gameplay acts like a blend of beat-em-up and shoot-em-up. and it's actually pretty cool. the combat is pretty good, though it can get repetitive when all you're doing is swinging the Wiimote and nunchuk like an idiot. the graphics for the game, at least for a Wii game, are passable. character models and environments are pretty well done, and are impressive for a Wii game. This game also has its share of issues, the main problem being the camera. the camera is constantly shifting and zooming in and out, and you can't do anything about it. this seriously gets in the way when in combat, especially during the boss fights. another problem is the environments. most of the time, environments are too dark, and seriously get in the way of progression sometimes. the sections where you take control of a vehicle are pretty bland. these try to go for a rail shooter kind of gameplay, but it's seriously boring in these sections. In the end, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a pretty boring game. while the gameplay is neat, it becomes hard to have fun with it thanks to dark environments, camera issues, and repetitiveness.
