  • 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 DisguiseBased 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

Score distribution:

  1. Transformers doesn't make any radical changes to the classic action game genre, but it does have likeable characters and top-notch production values, coupled with enjoyable gameplay.
  2. Transformers seems like it was built by a machine to a factory spec – all the parts are here that should, in theory, form an outstanding game. But it’s like no human actually gave it a test-drive to see if it was actually fun.
  3. It's not terrible by any means, but the horrible driving mechanics, repetitive missions and the horrible timer keep this game from being great.
  4. Very similar to most Michael Bay films - graphically intense, but shallow in terms of character and story. Add to that boring combat and you have a game good for fans of the upcoming movie only, though not even Transformer fan in general.
  5. Transformers: The Game is a textbook example of a licensed game done wrong.

    Transformers movie was such a good set up for a video game, unfortunately it has gone through the same transition other movie video games have seen, and sadly this is one of the worst and shortest experiences any fan will incur.

    Describing the game at all is simply to tick off a litany of annoyances punctuated by one minor triumph, namely that the Transformers themselves look pretty good. [Sept 2007, p.90]

I played it this weekend for 10 hours with my room mates and this I grew up as a fan and was very excited to have this game finally come out. I played it this weekend for 10 hours with my room mates and this game kicks butt!. You can be a truck, jets and kinds of other bad ass vehicles and fight in tons of different levels. I read through the other press reviews and I don't get what's up w/ these people. The bar for this game isn't Gears of War or Final Fantasy. If you want a fun game that can be played by both adults and kids (my cousin who is 15 ended up taking it from me)...then don't listen to these reviewers. Let them go play their Japanese RPG's! This game is awesome and the movie is going to be awesome! Expand

    Another horrible movie to game translation. I love the hell out of Transformers, but this game blew. You can't transform in mid-air, youAnother horrible movie to game translation. I love the hell out of Transformers, but this game blew. You can't transform in mid-air, you can't turn in mid-air, the cars steer like they are driving on ice... All of the elements a basic game need, were not up to par, or just missing. It seems as though the game was rushed to meet the release of the movie as close as possible, and the game paid for it in the end. I don't see how this game could even be possible for a young child to play. It was barely mediocre. Expand

If you are thinking of buying or downloading this game, don't, it's just a huge disappointment You can tell the game was rushed just to make sales when the movie came out. I feel bad for anyone who actually paid money for this. The people who developed this game had to have known it was garbage... it takes like 100 people to make a game and you cant tell me at least 1 out of those 100 ppl didn't realize this game sucked? They knew, they all knew, but they sold out for a paycheck. This world sucks. You sir have just robbed money out of peoples wallets by being greedy. I don't understand how people like this can sleep at night Expand
