ATTENTION ALL GAMERS WHO ARE CONSIDERING GETTING THIS GAME: STAY THE HELL AWAY.
This game is pure garbage. During the first half of the game you play back when the transformers were still on Cybertron. Now this sound good to you, it sounded ammazing to me, but the developers were too lazy to even try to bring the charm from the previous games. Character models are ripped straight from the previous games with absolutely no texture upgrades or improvements. Oh, but they couldn't be bothered with bringing in all of the sound files, because nearly every single character is missing one of their transforming sound effects. Pre-rendered HD cutscenes have been replaced by laggy, buggy, boring cutscenes that use in-game graphics and end up looking like garbage. Instead of buying weapons and their upgrades, you earn chests at the end of levels that randomly give you character trophies, perks, gear, and weapons. This is a failed attempt to innovate the game because 90% of the time you are getting ♥♥♥♥ you've already gotten, which it then converts to a crappy perk or something.
The second half of the game takes place on Earth in Michael Bay's Transformers universe. If this doesn't already activate red flags just take a seat, sonny. Now, I will give it credit; the graphics on Earth are beautiful. Bright vivid colors, smooth textures, and good looking character models are just a painfull reminder of how good the first half of the game could have looked. My biggest complaint is absolutely pathetic character roster. You can play as Optimus, Bumblebee, Drift, and Grimlock. That's ♥♥♥♥ing it. Oh, you liked playing as Grimlock in the last game? Good! His controls, transformation animation, attacks, sounds are exactly the same as they were in Fall of Cybertron, just with a new half-♥♥♥♥♥ skin slapped on it. Oh, the final boss is a joke, so don't get your hopes up.
Even after you finish the god awful campain mode, they ♥♥♥♥ up the multiplayer, which was the part I was looking forward to the most. Instead of modes like team deathmatch, capture the flag, head hunter, etc, with a decent character creator, you get a half-♥♥♥♥♥ escalation mode that forces you to play as characters from the game. It's not fun at all because nobody else plays, so good luck finding a match.
This game is a disgrace. It pisses on the good name the last two Transformers games had built, robs you of SIXTY ♥♥♥♥ING DOLLARS, and wastes time you could have been spending on a better game. ActiVision should be ashamed of themselves. A SHAMEFULL DISPLAY!!
