I looked at this game before playing it and said that it looked retarted. When I decided just to rent it, i loved it. I think its cool how you can choose a faction. The game itself may be easy, but they challenge you by putting in time limits and getting platinum. The characters are AWESOME. And, one of my favorite parts online. I dont know why but online is so much fun. Its simple but a lot of fun.

After all the hype about improving the last Transformers' game you would think Revenge of the Fallen would be a lot better than the last lackluster installment.
Is it better? Yeah....the last game was horrible. Is it good? No-- this one is just kind of weak.
To transform you must hold down the R2 button.....not tap it--- hold it down the entire time you want to be a vehicle.....some buttons do one thing when your a vehicle and a totally opposite thing when you are a robot. Its just not fluid or comfortable for long periods of time. For a shooter to be good it has to have easy to use controls. If i had to lay blame for this games inherent failure it would be at the feet of the awkward and poorly conceived controls.
The story is nonexistent....no cut scenes or movies to advance the plot.
The game is really just a below average 3rd person robot shooter with very repetitive no name enemies. Each level does end with a boss fight which highlights a named Transformer.....that was cool.
The missions are standard stuff....killing, protecting, fixing.... and there are a few unlockable items that will maybe give you a reason to play a level a few times but it just got old really fast for me.
The voice work sounds like its all the original actors (especially Optimus and Sam) so its enjoyable and well done-- a big plus.
I dont know.....I just expected more from this blockbuster of a movie franchise. Rent it, blow up a few robots, return it in a few days.....isnt that why we all joined Gamefly.

All'n'all I thought that Transformers was a fun and entertaining game. For the type of game that it is, it was made very well. It takes a bit to get the controlls down, but after you do and you start unlocking different items you can really get into it, however this game will never be in my collection, I didnt like it enough to play it after I beat it, but I am glad that I played it.
