I am surprised that this game is a 6.5 average rating; however, I am writing this as a mother of the player, not as the player. My son will be 8 this month. Based on the opinions I've received from many gamers, my son is above average in terms of skill level on any game he plays. He likes this game more than the first Transformers PS2 game, indicating it has more options for the characters and it is more challenging. Though I don't have first hand experience playing the game, as a mother I would definitely recommend!
This game is very good,but I don't like the fact that you can't transform when ever you want to.I like that you can be Optimus Prime and Megatron,but I don't like it when you can't even be The Fallen.When you are playing multiplayer with someone else and you choose different sides you don't fight against the other person you fight alongside them.
