Could've been a little improved.

As a Transformers fan, I do have to admit: this game is not that appealing. The graphics are so-so, the story is too confusing, and there are a couple of glitches. While the gameplay is fun, it's basically the same thing in every level: shoot all the enemies. This might be the last time I buy a movie tie-in game, after playing through the awful The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game. There goes $60 that I'll never see again!

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much consumerism
