This is not a game; this is a love letter to Transformer cartoon fans everywhere. Improving on the original title, the combat mechanics are more varied (your robot avatars stealth, platform and fly across the levels as opposed to the first game's lackluster cover-based combat) and there is more variety to the robots themselves. The level design is somewhat improved; the original game was endless halls of metal but there is somewhat more variety in the sequel. Still, compared to the diverse world-spanning locals of other franchises, the levels can't compare in color or style; it is, after all, based on a robot-planet.
Still, while the gameplay is improved it is still not exceptional. It is the robots that are the stars of this show; the Transformers so many of us grew up with. Fighting battles with Jazz, Starscream, Metroplex and Optimus (amongst many others) is something no fan should miss. But I can imagine that people who don't love the franchise might find the experience lacking.
