Top Customer Reviews
Your team of playable Transformers is comprised of Hot Shot, Red Alert, and Optimus Prime. Each Transformer has their own stats for firepower, speed, defense, and power.
The controls work well most of the time, but seeing as your are suppose to be moving around giant robots, they can feel a little sluggish. How nimble the Transformers are will be one of the few clues to how massive they're supposed to be. They're not big enough to tower over the trees, they spend their time in giant temples and ruins, and there's only a couple instances where you'll be around buildings that are meant for people. The lack of humans running around, and other things of our size that we would see on a day to day basis adds to the lack of perception making it hard to keep in mind the true scale of these machines. The developers also use rag-doll physics for when your Transformer gets knocked off his feet. It looks kind of silly, because they start to appear to be feather-light, aluminum toy shells, as they bounce and flail around.
These little things can be overlooked once you get into the core of the game-play. It is essentially a straight-forward 3rd person shooter, where you'll need to get from point A to point B and kill everything in between. At this, is does a fair job with the action getting intense and even overwhelming at times given the waves of powerful foes that will head your way. A few challenging boss battles also adds to the toughness that the game can throw at you.Read more ›
So will this game be the one to break that mold? Well , yes and no. The game is fun. The fun of using one of 3 Autobots that you can Transform and shoot at evil Decepticon warriors makes the game fun for any Transformers fan. But the game seems to be a bit on the short side. You go through a few worlds that you can easily get through and the bosses aren't that tricky even on the harder levels. You sorta feel a bit let down that there isn't more to it then what we do wind up with.
A thing to note about the game is that it uses characters from the Armada toy line that was out in 2002. There is no real mention of this as they just call the game Transformers and nothing else. But it has all the elements and characters from the Armada series, including Minicons and all the characters from that wave of toys.
I am glad I bought the game as I had been waiting a long time to play a really good Transformers game but after you play it through you will see why it just didn't seem filling enough. You only fight some of the major Decepticons at the end of each stage in some boss battle that usauly isn't too tricky as long as you have the right minicon's equipped. You only get to use 3 Autobots and it just seems like so many characters were left out that could have been used in parts of the stages instead of these generic Decepticon warriors we get. The game feels a bit rushed overall and comes off as a good premiere game for what could be done in the future with more time and effort put into it.Read more ›
