After reading the write-up for this game, and watching the trailer, I was very excited to get it. The story-line is very good, and the graphics are so-so. I expected this to be a “free roaming” game, with objectives, like all the other Transformers games I’ve played…but it’s not. You have NO control of your character at all, except duck, aim, and shoot(and steer in alt-mode). Part of the fun of a Transformers game, is being able to TRANSFORM WHEN YOU WANT!!! Co-op mode(2 player) is even worse. Half of the control you DO have over one character is given to the other player. It was very easy to beat, and not that challenging. No unlockables, except for artwork(whooptie-freakin’-doo). The rating is T for teen, but my 11 year-old thought this game was stupid. The write-up for this game said you would be able to create your own character…Maybe for the PS3 or XBOX, but I guess not for the Wii.

This game should embarrass Activision, a company that’s been making games for about 30 years. The ONLY thing I liked about it was aiming the sniper rifle, the rest was garbage.
First, the game gives you no choices except which campaign you play, Autobot or Decepticon. Once you choose, I thought there would be some kind of character creation page, but no. You use the character they decided was right for the mission.
And once you get into it, you quickly realize the gameplay is at least a decade behind the times. Over 10 years ago Everquest had a far superior interface with the character, letting you walk, fight, whatever you needed to do in an interactive environment. Here, you either drive/ fly on a track with no choices, or the computer walks you from cover spot to cover spot. How can a Transformer game in 2010 not let you choose when to Transform and do it yourself? My DS “Transformers: Autobots” lets you do more, and I bought it used on what should be an inferior game system in terms of graphics, gameplay, etc.
And the story was the biggest disappointment. When the game ws in preview I read that Cybertron adventures was the Wii version of War for Cybertron, and War for Cybertron was about Optimus Prime’s rise to leadership of the Autobots. Well, not this game. This drops you into a story that is already well into it, gives you no sense what’s supposed to be going on, etc. I bought this to see how they did the story! Guess they suckered me into buying this, as now I have to go for the PC version I guess.
And most games seem to have unlockable content of something for in game use. Maybe I just haven’t unlocked enough yet, but this one has just pictures of in game characters you can look at? Give me a break.
Save your money, this game should be in the bargain bin shortly if you really want to see how bad it is. I know I’ll be using mine as a trade in shortly.

I have had a chance to play three versions of the game. I bought the DS version at the local GameStop, ordered the Wii version from Amazon, and a friend of mine has the PS3 version. The Wii version is the worst. The game is advertised as an action game, but really all you are getting is a rail shooter. I gave the game a 3 star rating because as a rail shooter, it’s average, but as an action game, I would actually rate it a 1.
