Another summer of transforming robot battles is upon us! Is Transformers: Dark of the Moon worth your time? Read our game review right here on Kidzworld to find out!

Last year's Transformers: War for Cybertron was really a decent game. It had great multiplayer modes, good gameplay, and decent story and graphics. The newest game in the series, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, brings back a lot of the good stuff and tries to introduce some new features that don't quite work out as well.

More Than Meets the Eye

Just like the previous Transformer games, Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a third person shooting game with some driving and vehicle combat mixed in. The fact that your character can change between vehicle and robot at any time makes the game unique and different from other third person shooters. Every playable transformer has its own pros and cons as well as its own unique weapons and tools, making it interesting to try out each character and find the one that best fits with your style.

The game follows the story from the movie and is quite challenging, even on normal mode. Enemies will suddenly appear in great numbers and it can be hard to avoid all of their attacks. Unfortunately, like most movie adaptations, the game gets repetitive quickly as there isn't much to do except defeat all the enemies and proceed with the story.

The Dark Side

Transformers: Dark of the Moon has Stealth Force mode for your transformers. This is the default vehicle mode and it will give your vehicle lots of weapons with endless ammo. You can take more damage in Stealth Force mode than in robot mode and vehicles are speedier as well. This effectively makes robot mode a bit useless, as you can do everything with Stealth Force.

Online competitive multiplayer mode is back, but missing are three player co-op and Escalation survival mode. Multiplayer is still fun, as transforming between different modes leads to interesting battles. But in the end, you will most likely end up using Stealth Force the most.
