The heroic Autobots and evil Decepticons battle for control of the All Spark in this new video game. Before you pick a side, read our Transformers game review!

It's giant robot time as the Transformers: The Game video game lets you control the Autobots and Decepticons from the new Transformers movie! The huge robot aliens have come to earth looking for the All Spark and it's a race to see who gets it first. The game is out for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. Gary grabbed a copy to bring you this Transformers game review!

Robots in Disguise

Toss the game in, load it up, check out the sweet graphics, then pick a side - Autobot or Decepticon and get ready to battle for the All Spark. Each side has a bunch of levels with lots of stuff to smash and other Transformers to battle. There are also mini-missions you can play to unlock extra stuff, or you can just pick your fave Transformer and go wreak havoc.

Giant Robot Action!

Giant robots have never looked this good! The Transformers video game looks almost as good as the movie, especially on the Xbox 360 and PS3. It also has terrific sound effects, including the voice actors from the movie - except for Megatron, Hugo Weaving does his voice in the movie, but they have Frank Welker, the original Megatron from the cartoon, doing his voice in the game.

Curse of the Movie-Based Game?

This game is so close to being awesome. Unfortunately, under all the cool is a big scoop of awful. The controls are weak, weird force fields (that aren't in the movie or the cartoon) make long-range attacks useless, driving around in vehicle mode blows and you can finish the whole game in less than a day.

Rent, Buy or Bury?

As cool as all the giant robot action looks and sounds, there's not enough actual video game fun going on. It looks terrific and it's almost worth playing just to stomp around as Megatron and blow stuff up. But, stick to renting it, or better yet - go get the old Playstation 2 Transformers game for some serious fun!

Thumbs Up:

  • The Autobots and Decepticons look fantastic!
  • Lots of stuff to blow up.
  • Terrific voices, including the original Megatron voice from the old cartoon!
  • Thumbs Down:

  • The controls are awkward.
  • Super short!
  • Energy force-fields?!?
  • Transforming to vehicle mode blows.
  • Game Rating: 3

    Available for: PS3, Xbox 360, Wii.
