Based on the 2007 live-action feature film, "Transformers: The Game" lets gamers control the outcome in the battle for Earth as they choose to protect it as either Autobots or Decepticons. For those unfamiliar with Transformers, The Decepticons are the bad guys.
A score of 57%(Wii) and 56% (Ps2) on Metacritic.com, (based on an average of game reviews) would lead you to believe it's a little ahead of the recent spree of abysmal movie tie-ins, but read on.
Warning "doing both the Autobots and Decepticons campaign will only take a mere six hours or so to finish." source Deeko
Reviews Summary Wii
Likeable characters, top-notch production values, and enjoyable gameplay
Those looking for a Transformers fix should scour the bargain bins for that Atari's 2004 release
The boss battles are a frustration, pure movie tie-in fodder
Lack of diverse missions, insipid gameplay and taxing camera system results in a watered-down experience
The skeleton of a great game is here, but nothing comes together.
I can't imagine anyone but diehard fans going to these lengths
Paying $60 to play through the movies story is just too high a price to pay for a mediocre adventure game.
Reviews Summary Ps2
It’s not that this game is terrible, just kind of unimpressive and full of things that have been done better elsewhere.
While the movie stands, the video game most definitely falls.
On par with all other movie licensed games: relatively short, decent graphics, decent gameplay, and not much value to it.
Quickly thrown together with the most basic and juvenile concepts videogaming has.
Big, loud, shallow action game that severely lacks in content.
All the noise and effects in the galaxy can't disguise the lack of invention or class
