    A prime example of how to disrespect the fans of something as big as Transformers: a £50 game that can be finished on a single GamePad charge. Yuck.

    Quotation forthcoming. [Sept 2010]
    • 21 Metascore
    • 26 Critic Score
    The controls are hideous. [July 2010, p.95]
    • 32 Metascore
    • 26 Critic Score
    Awful.

    • 23 Critic Score
    The dragon is impossible to control. [Jan 2010, p.87]
    • 48 Metascore
    • 22 Critic Score
    It's dull, it's repetitive and it's as much fun as being cuddled by a cactus. [Nov 2007, p.87]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 22 Critic Score
    It's utterly boring. [Aug 2008, p.101]
    • 23 Metascore
    • 22 Critic Score
    A true classic gone horribly to seed. It'd be funny if it wasn't heartbreakingly sad. [Nov 2012, p.99]
    • 48 Metascore
    • 21 Critic Score
    Granted, we quite like the animated Gordon Ramsay but the rest really is a shambles. [Dec 2008, p.100]
    • 46 Metascore
    • 21 Critic Score
    Endless Ocean, we get - it has a point. This, on the one hand, is ridiculous. [Nov 2008, p.104]
    • 46 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    There's always one dreadful launch game (remember the GameCube's "Universal Tour"?) and Rampage: World Destruction is the Wii's. Even if you once enjoyed "Rampage" you won't like this. [Jan 2007, p.82]
    • 35 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    It's like a compilation of gaming's worst moments, wrapped up in a film license. [Feb 2008, p.20]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Straight to the top of this month's Avoid At All Costs pile. Hugely repulsive. [Oct 2009, p.88]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    A shambles of a port that is an embarrassment to anyone who decided it was ready to be released.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    It's horrible stuff: a yawning, Nietzschean abyss of a game that makes you believe those people who say that there's no point in video games.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 18 Critic Score
    Thanks to some lazy localisation and poor design choices, this is nearly unplayable. [Apr 2010, p.95]
    • 31 Metascore
    • 18 Critic Score
    Absolute dross: a joyless, inept, tedious, ugly, lazy, messy waste of your time and money. We hoped games this bad might die out with the Wii.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 16 Critic Score
    It's completely broken. [Aug 2009, p.99]
    • 44 Metascore
    • 15 Critic Score
    How Sega thinks it can get away with this utter detritus is beyond us. [July 2008, p.101]
    • 27 Metascore
    • 15 Critic Score
    It's a dire shooter with an unwieldy new controls system. [Christmas 2012, p.110]
    • 16 Metascore
    • 14 Critic Score
    You'll find it tough to unlock all 101 games. Not that you'd want to bother because they're so abysmal, not even of the standard of your average Flash game.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 12 Critic Score
    A complete howler. [Mar 2009, p.87]
    • 28 Metascore
    • 12 Critic Score
    About as funny as a flu epidemic. [Sept 2010, p.97]
    • 24 Metascore
    • 12 Critic Score
    As welcome as an ingrown toenail and twice as ugly. [Jan 2013, p.100]
    • 37 Metascore
    • 11 Critic Score
    You might as well chuck your money down the drain instead. At least you'll be able to control where it's going.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 11 Critic Score
    This is just rubbish...Cheap, tacky and completely untitillating, this has no place on WiiWare. [Dec 2009, p.99]
    • 11 Metascore
    • 11 Critic Score
    ONM Coroner's Report: Patient suffered a psychotic breakdown while playing this game. No treatment possible.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 8 Critic Score
    It'll take you mere minutes to complete, but the dark, oily stain that it leaves on your conscience will take years to fully cleanse. [Feb 2011, p.97]
