Well this is the third Transformers' film to game, and Transformers third attempt to multiplayer. Now before I break it down to you I'd like you to know that this is probably the most fun I've had with a transformers campaign in a long time. WFC was fairly descent but the illuminous colors that were used for the stage made traveling a little incoherent. This game however is a whole lot more lush and easy to navigate. The only problem I had was with how short the campaign was. A total of seven chapters left closing the game's story into a prequel to the movie itself. The AI is a lot more forgiving then in WFC or any other Transformers game for that matter, and combat is a lot more fun even though to melee combat you have to press in the right stick. Almost all of the achievements are fairly easy to acquire and most can be attained within two runs of the campaign. Now on to multiplayer. Here still needs improvement, but it's a big step since WFC which had also showed signs of improved multiplayer. Multiplayer in this game is all about team coordination. However because of unlockable percs, certain team formulas can go drastically wrong. It's amazing how fast Shockwave can be spanked by two puny Autobots. It is a lot of fun but still because of the low replay value of campaign and the simplicity of acquiring all achievements throughout the game, I recommend this as a rent only title. And if you are planning to buy it as a game and not as a collective memento I'd say buy it straight from Gamefly for the discounts. This game gets a straight 9 from me.

Although not BAD as far as movie games go, the added stealth mode gives WAAAY too much power than should have been givin, making it useless to transform into Bot' mode, as you will die very fast, and the standard Alt modes are used only in "boosting"
Gone are the coop and escalation modes that made WFC have a little bit of replay value.
I would recommend anyone that wants the BEST transformer game to check out ROTF. This one just does not add up to a decent $60 purchase, and I would say most will send it back in the 1st few days
Very low draw distances...Cant climb buildings...Cant pick up new weapons...This is a major step back from WFC.
Graphics are at par..physics are a little lacking. Online modes turn into everyone using the new "steath force" modes because its silly to try and get kills in bot mode when there are so many perks to Stealth mode.
Campaign is kinda short, and is NOT a very good "prequel" as they stated.
