Purchased the Transformers DVD the other day and it got me thinking about the game. I was able to play a little on the rented 360 when I had some friends over, and my opinion of the game pretty much falls in line with the GameSpot score: disappointing.
This follows the tried-and-true formula of games based on movies – they must be terrible. It would have been nice to see Transformers: The Game buck this trend, and you think it wouldn’t be that hard. I mean, you’re transforming machines that blow stuff up! How can that not be made into a fun game?
I guess I need to be more specific – it’s not that there wasn’t any fun to be had, it’s just there was so much potential that was lost.
But who knows? More movies are to come so there will be more chances to get it right. . .
Autobots, roll out!
