    Lastly, Transformers: The Game is incredibly short, and doing both the Autobots and Decepticons campaign will only take a mere six hours or so to finish.

    The real tragedy here is that a simple attempt to emulate Atari's 2004 Transformers game would have made this movie tie-in an order of magnitude better. As is, those looking for a Transformers fix should scour the bargain bins for that classic, and leave this one on the shelf.
  3. There are a few good ideas sent to die here, and the overall premise of the game is great, but it's all mired in technical problems and awful mission design.

    To say that Transformers: The Game is anything short of broken would be a lie.

    You can't transform a turd, no matter how hard you try. [Oct 2007, p.89]
  6. The clumsiness of the controls makes combat a somewhat uneven experience.
  7. Transformers should never have made it past Activision's headquarters and it should never find its way into your Wii's drive.

Most of theBoy 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. Full Review »

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.
