Based on the film, Transformers the Game for Windows follows the same plot from the film in a surprisingly accurate way. Not that the film had much to follow. You have robots that run about beating up other robots and blowing up stuff, and you get a lot of the same in Transformers the Game. When the game first starts out, it makes a real positive first impression with a lot of action and robot battles. This game is kind of long awaited, and you do have an interesting concept. You can choose to play as either the Decepticons or the Autobots.

The great thing about playing Transformers the Game is thatyou are not tied to a single character. When you play, you can play as a variety of characters like Megatron. The Transformers are highly detailed, and you have a lot depth that went into the design of that aspect. However, the environments could benefit from a little more detail and variation to feel less like something that was just slapped together.

Transformers the Game suffers from boring combat after a while. The fighting is less fun than you might imagine, where you just mash the buttons over and over to do the same three combos. There is not much variation. Another one of the annoying aspects about Transformers the Game is that you have an action zone that forces you to go back into that zone or you fail. That can be extraordinarily annoying, and it is completely unnecessary. It makes the game feel more limited than it needs to be. As said before, while it does tie into the movie, it does not stay much fun for long. Activision published the game, and this is a third-person shooter/action adventure game. The graphics are substandard compared to what you can get elsewhere.

One of the interesting elements of Transformers the Game is that you have several collectibles that you can take advantage of. For example, you can take advantage of the secret mission, and it gives you an achievement when you collect all of them. You can destroy a lot of things, especially as the Decepticons. You will blow up entire buildings, which is probably one of the most satisfying aspects of this game.

The game does get rid of Shia Labeouf, which could be a positive or negative depending on who's playing. In general, the overall experience of Transformers the Game could be compared to Hulk Ultimate Destruction. The big difference here, however, is that you can turn into a vehicle to drive to the action. Overall, this is not a bad game, but it needs extra work if it were to become a great game.

Pros

  • Generic missions that make no sense
  • Fun to blow up buildings
  • Play as multiple robots

Cons

  • Impressive at first, but it loses steam fast
  • Generic missions that make no sense
