First, the good. The transformation sequences are really cool, as you leap from being a large fighting robot and land as a fast sports car. There are of course a number of different vehicles to choose from, depending on which character you are. You don't get to choose the character, though. You choose a side, good or bad, and then as the storyline progresses you play through as a variety of characters. The mission tree is very linear, and each stage has its own main character and goals.
The cut scenes are relatively short and help to move the story along. You can of course skip them if you want to launch right into destructive mayhem.
You would think with a "town" to explore that there'd be a lot to do and see. And in fact they do have the traditional hidden items for you to gather up from back alleys and such. However, the game is always driving you hard to go to the next spot and start the next mission. When you do, you have very short time limits to get a certain task done - destroy all of the ZZZZs, fight all of the YYYYs, move from point A to B. Sometimes the missions are a combination - move from A to B, destroy a bunch of ZZZZs, move from B to C, destroy a bunch of ZZZZs, and so on.
This is where the game gets extremely frustrating. Missions go on for long periods of time, with repetitive inane tasks, and if you get stuck on one part of the task, you go all the way back to the beginning. That wouldn't be bad if the game controls were responsive and the gameplay itself was sensical.Read more ›
- Charactor design is very good. Looks like characters from the movie.
- Interaction with the envirnment. Being able to pick up and throw objects and the distruction of an urban city makes it feel like you are in a true transformers world.
- The voice overs are decent and not over done or cheesy. Real voices from the film is always a plus.
- Range of playable characters is a big plus too. The lack of characters on the transformers game on the ps2 a few years back really plagued that game.
- The story line keeps the game going. Some movie to game have a real boring story line when trying to adapt a film script to a video game. Transformers does a nice job keeping the flow going.
- Controls are difficult, especially while transformed. Driving is just plain frustrating. Alot of botton mashing while fighting other robots.
- Lack of detail for the surrounding environment. I still find it strange that after a year and half of the 360 on the market game developers still do not use the full power of this console.
- Way too many cut scenes. This does slow down the action of the game.
- Repetitive game play. No strategy what so ever. Like I said, alot of botton mashing.
- Not much room for free roam. The setting is just to small for this game.
- I dont understand the purpose of having weapons when every robot has an energy shield. The only way to defeat a ememy is either throwing objects or melee. This does not make much sense.
I did give this game 3 stars because it does have good aspects to it, but it is not worth $59.99. I would wait for this bad boy to drop in price before purchase.
When I saw the first released footage of this game my jaw dropped. The visuals looked incredible; ultimately the final product lived up to that hype in the graphics department, but fell short everywhere else. The problem is, once you get past the visuals and the overall feel the game creates of being a giant robot able to Transform. Once you get past that the entertainment value drops quickly and then, well then the game deludes into a repetitive nightmare that will haunt gamers. When it's good, it's ok. When it's bad, it's a bore and it's a lot of repetition that often requires luck and not skill to complete.
As with so many movie titles before it Transformers is throw away big screen to game adaptation. The problem is with movie games like Chronicles of Riddick the bar has been set a lot higher. With this game once the "wow" factors wears off you get past the very entertaining aspect of: running, climbing, bashing, transforming (worth two or three hours of bliss) once you get past all that there is a very medicore, linear game that is often redundant and often more annoying that challenging. While there is no difficulty selection, I found the game to be about normal. It's not that it was too difficult in spots, it's that the challenging points were not overall very fun. In fact when there is no skill or puzel to solve (when you're ability to complete a mission is based 50% of luck) it's a very, very unpleasant gaming experience.
When you're a fan of specific characters and you're starved for a good TF game you have a choice to make.Read more ›
