    Here's the problem with this game...no one is playing MP! The last reviewer talked about SP, and I can't do a whole lot to defend it. Its ok. But he failed to mention anything about what makes this game a sleeper. We've wanted the ability to play with transforming robots online. And this iteration is a pretty damn good attempt. There are plenty of varied robots to choose Here's the problem with this game...no one is playing MP! The last reviewer talked about SP, and I can't do a whole lot to defend it. Its ok. But he failed to mention anything about what makes this game a sleeper. We've wanted the ability to play with transforming robots online. And this iteration is a pretty damn good attempt. There are plenty of varied robots to choose from, each having a unique special ability. Graphically the robots and transformations are nice, the maps and other textures not so much. Maps are a little tight, but work out fine. The 8 player cap would be a complaint, but its rare that you have to deal with that issue. Game modes, TDM, pretty straight forward. DM, One Shall Stand, basically VIP from Halo, Capture the shards, and Capture the point. Of all of these I enjoy the Capture the point the most. Its a mode we all are familiar with, but the see saw battles are super fun. Hopefully more people will pick it up as DLC is supposed to be steady. Expand

    It's mediocre. About 6 hours worst case should have both campaigns complete for you, so there's not a whole lot packed into this for single player. The campaign missions get pretty repetitive as well - there's a reason for the name of the "Grind On" achievement. Hardcore fans of Transformers should give the game a rent, there's probably enough in there to justify the It's mediocre.

But to outright buy the game for anything more than $19.99 would be criminal. It's not the worst movie tie-in game ever, but there's not a whole lot in here, it's not challenging, and will probably bore a lot of people. Expand

    a very poor attempt at a good game. when i first looked at the tutorial, i was really exited about what the game is going to be like. but then when you start doing the missions, comes the disappointment. very repetitive, very boring, and really not worth your time or money unless you are a real fan of transformers.

    I have been a transformers fan for a while but didn't expect much from the game, but once I started playing it I found it a great experience, game play was fun but nothing too new but overall enjoyable and as a nice little reward activision gave us a few G1 episodes as unlocks which I thought was a pleasant supprise, for once a good movie title! i have to admit I own 3 transformers gamesI have been a transformers fan for a while but didn't expect much from the game, but once I started playing it I found it a great experience, game play was fun but nothing too new but overall enjoyable and as a nice little reward activision gave us a few G1 episodes as unlocks which I thought was a pleasant supprise, for once a good movie title! i have to admit I own 3 transformers games and I have enjoyed all 3 of them(Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and war for cybertron) Expand

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is by no means a great game, but that doesn't make it a bad one either. I like the idea of playing as an autobot or decepticon, but there was not even a story to begin with. Instead you just get a loading screen with some dialogue and some banter in missions. Also, the combat isn't stellar, but the transforming can be cool, if not finicky at times withTransformers: Revenge of the Fallen is by no means a great game, but that doesn't make it a bad one either.

    It's not a bad game, but it is still not perfect either. The story is just playing missions that get really repetitive. The gameplay is actually decent. The multiplayer is the best thing about this game, but now in 2016 you might not find anyone though.

  1. Transformers – Revenge of the Fallen isn’t the greatest action game to ever grace the current generation of consoles and as such will only appeal to fans who will love getting to play as some of the favourite characters from the movies.

    Revenge of the Fallen is exactly what we were expecting. No more, no less.
  3. It all amounts to a game that'll keep you busy for a few hours, but only because you want to unlock bonus content or score achievement points/trophies. If you're into disposable content and transforming robots, Revenge is a decent rental.
