Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (15):

The award-winning game makers at Traveller's Tales (Lego Star Wars series) do a great job of giving you the feeling of controlling enormous machines. Transformers: The Game also features gorgeous graphics -- especially with the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 versions -- but this game doesn't rely on just its good looks to keep you interested.

That said, the game isn't perfect. It is quite short, only offering about seven or eight hours of play. Little strategy is required during combat sequences; a few punches and kicks and the enemy is down. Perhaps the game was geared more toward novice or younger players, but simplistic fighting and a short campaign are not a good combination.
