I don't usually critique, but when I do, I do it right.
GRIPES 1) It shouldn't be called Dark of the Moon, since the entire game is a prequel. I wish I had played it before I went and saw the movie. 2) Optimus's chapter was great, just wish I could have smashed more Deception while playing as one of my heroes 8)
PRAISES 1. Presentation of the game was nice. Since the TFormer movies came out, I'm not a big fan of the old style look of the TFormers. War for Cyberton almost didn't get my playtime because of the blocky look of the TFormers, but I played it anyway and wasn't disappointed. I love the look of Bay's TFormers, and appreciate the work done on them in this game. 2. My gripe about War for Cybertron was the play this side, then that side campaign. DotM fixed that by making it one streaming story that didn't leave me going "But I want to play the Autobots first!!" 3. Playing as the little guys FELT like I was driving a sports car and fighting as a nimble little fighter guy. Very nice. 4. It had a very TFormer movie feel to it... the music was almost spot-on. Played the first mission with my stereo turned up... very nice.
OVERALL The gripes are trivial. This game deserves more praise than anything. Like every work, there are things that can be improved on. However, if the War for Cybertron guys keep on making TFormer games I'll be sure to play them.

Im not a hip to the gamer lingo but the truth is i was plesantly suprised by this one! I got it for my son and i ended up playing it WAY more than him. Great weapons. The transformation from robot to vehicle is seemless and exactly how id hoped it would be, I bought it!
