I can recommend this game to any Transformers fan. It is story-driven game, but the story is better than any Michael Bay's scrap and on the same level as Transformers: Prime tv show (just a little bit darker). It's more like revamped classic Transformers from 80's. The design of transformers is high and resembles G1 design. Voice over is just 10/10.
There are tons of fun in multiplayer. You can create your own Autobot or Decepticon from available parts. Unfortunately you can't pick a side in multiplayer, the game does that for you to balance teams. Sometimes it chooses Autobot side which is so beneath me and defies my logic. Though when you host Escalation mode you can pick a side. In this mode you can choose any iconic transformer like Lord Megatron himself.
If you are only after the story, you can just watch walkthrough on youtube as the story is pretty much linear and you literally watch it like a movie. But if you want to play multiplayer, it's by far the best Transformers multiplayer experience out there.
You wanna know why I like this game? There are no f***ing humans, just my favorite Decepticons and those pathetic Autobots.
