- Summary: Based on the 2007 live-action feature film, Transformers: The Game lets gamers control the outcome in the battle for Earth as they choose to protect it as Autobots or destroy it as Decepticons. Players experience the unstoppable power and massive scale of their favorite Robots in Disguise such as BumbleBee, Barricade and others. As the Transformers robot's war comes to Earth, gamers make the choice to join the Autobots in protecting our planet or to join the Decepticons in destroying it. With dual campaigns, the fate of the world is in players' hands. Instantly change from a larger than life robot to a high-powered vehicle such as a sports car, fighter jet or helicopter. Players crush, topple and wreck every object, including buildings and vehicles, in their path or use the objects as weapons. An unprecedented line-up lets gamers experience the massive scale, unique abilities and sheer strength of an army of characters from the Transformers universe when they choose to play as Optimus Prime, Megatron, Ironhide, Starscream, BumbleBee and more. For head-to-head battles, fans engage in melee combat that reflects each Transformers robot's character, scale, weight and power along with melee weapons and special moves unique to each character. The game's ranged combat offers a wide array of projective weapons designed to take out enemies from afar. [Activision]… Expand
Sam7The game is an entertaining diversion, a passable rental that you will probably have little interest in playing again. Graphics: The Transformers look decent, but the entire game looks like you're playing the 360 version with blurry eyesight. The smoke effects look good...if the game was cel-shaded. The explosions are decent looking. Sound: The effects are good. The dialouge and voices are not. For the transformers, during the cutscenes, it sounds like they were sitting 5 feet away from the microphone and have a cold. Controls: the scheme is decent enough, and it's pulled off in a good enough way. However, sometimes it's extremely clunky, especially for the airborne decepticons. The camera could be better as well. Gameplay: As I mentioned, an entertaining diversion. It gets frustrating here and there, and you could tell it was rushed. But if you're bored one day and at your Blockbuster with nothing else to rent, or if you're at a store in a couple years with only 5 dollars and see the game in the 5 dollar or less bin, give it a look.… Expand
Boy do I wish I looked at the reviews on this site before I bought this game. I loved the movie but they butchered the game. Most of the problem is in the camera controls, which is what I would have learned if I checked this site first. Everyoen is right, the camera is so bad that it about entirely kills the experience. Story is good, missions are good, graphics are good, but the game plays like crap due to the camera and is much more frustrating than anything else as a result. Even if I don't like a game I usually wouldn't rate it this low, but the camera makes this feel broken. Broken meand LOW score. BAD game, do not bother.… Expand
JebRand1I recieved this game as a gift and I felt obliged to play it. Every moment I wasted playing this game Activision should pay me back, as it was surely a waste of my life.
I hate games where the remote controls the camera view (e.g. Metroid 3).
This game is sooooooooo weak, the only reason I gave it a 1 is bc it was a gift and I feel bad giving it 0.… Expand
