4.0 out of 5 stars Everything It Sets Out to Be. June 27, 2010
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've seen some mixed reviews on this game, with the more negative ones tending to come from professional game critics. The reasons they cite (which are largely true and accurate) include linear play, as opposed to the sandbox approach that has been taking off in recent years, and repetitive gameplay. The point that these reviewers miss, I think, is that the game doesn't fail at delivering sandbox play because of some design flaw; it is exactly what it was made to be, and for that purpose, and on its own strengths, it should not be demerited for failing to provide something it was clearly never meant to deliver.

It also has drop-in/drop-out co-op story mode play for 1-3 people. Games that have drop-in/drop-out multiplayer are designed to be easy to pick up, and just as easy to put down, in so far as there is no real penalty for quitting that is administered by the game itself. The Lego games of late, such as Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, LEGO Batman, et al, employ a similar system. Such games are not aimed at a narrow, high-challenge-seeking, hardcore audience. This particular one is also not aimed at the long-grind MMO-style crowd, though it does employ a point system for unlockable content.

It's aimed at regular people who think Transformers are kinda cool. It won't offend any but the most die-hard fan in any way, and it manages to smoothly apply simple and streamlined game mechanics to a highly polished treatment of the property. This, combined with the mid-to-low price point for new PC game software, makes the game very obviously targeted for maximum dispersion, with maximum accessibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! June 22, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a long time transformers fan and thought all the other transformer games were horrible so I was really skeptical and expecting to be disappointed. Only played it a few hours but so far I absolutely love it! I'm so glad they finally made a decent game that does the Transformers universe justice.

Being able to transform instantly at any time to utilize different abilities is a lot of fun in both campaign and multi-player modes. The four different classes, weapon choices, abilities and transformations add a great deal of depth and strategy. I love the design of the Characters and world, I've always been a big fan of the futuristic look of Cybertron and find it a lot more exciting than the old school normal vehicles on Earth. It's also nice to experience a prequel to the animated series.

It uses the Unreal 3 Engine so it looks great and runs smooth even on my system which is a couple years old (but still over the minimum requirements). NOTE: For some reason I can't run it unless I switch my desktop resolution lower than 1920x1200 even though it is listed as a supported resolution. There was no error or explanation, the game just disappeared after the loading screen. I had to figure it out trial and error.

I only have a few minor complaints. I would like to be able to play solo Campaign without the helpers just so I can do my own thing or at least be able to tell them what to do. I would love to be able to switch to 1st person perspective at any time not just with the scientist's rifle. I would love more character appearance customization options for multi-player, other than picking a chassis (not many options without unlocking more?) you can only change 2 colors! I still love the game though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Transformers game !!!! June 28, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Graphics and gameplay are excellent this game is based off the Generation 1 transformers before they went to earth.Single play is good could be better only if you did not have the AI players that follow you slow you down.Online multiplay is excellent and a blast.If your a transformers fan this game will not let you down.They even used the original voice of the original Optimus prime the other voice overs are from the transformer live action movies.

2.0 out of 5 stars A reluctant porting to PC January 18, 2011
By Casey
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a very strong, fun game. The single-player game is great, the story is good, the graphics are quite nice.

But there are two massive shortcomings.

multiplayer is a joke - and it's on us. There are absolutely no dedicated servers to host games - something that in this day and age, should be a requirement for any FPS/TPS game. Don't have it? You're lazy and cheap, period. Servers cost nothing now for proprietors to support. This results in people using buggy versions of the client (ever been in a two-sided game, 5v5 and suddenly you're on a THIRD SIDE? I have. It's hilarious because everyone can kill you!), immense lag, hosts quitting when they're getting the crap kicked out of them, and to be completely blunt a bipolaric gaming experience that goes from a ton of fun to making me quit playing it for 3-4 weeks at a time.

The second joke is the Downloadable Content (DLC). Console versions were given DLC with added models for multi-player, more characters for Escalation, etc. What did PC users get? Basics. It's a complete slap in the face for those who paid $50-$60 at time of release.

If you are a PC user, do not purchase this game. It is a waste of your time. Unless you want to play the 10-hour campaign.

For those who will point and say, "this guy sucks at FPS games," I have two Primes, so I certainly know how to be good at this game. I really enjoy playing a scout. However, the sheer stupidity of the terrible multiplayer structure is beyond patience-dwindling. Perhaps this is a Steam issue, but I find that highly unlikely.
