I would say to anyone who is a transformers fan to play this game. If you are just an FPS fan, then maybe give it a rent and try it out.
Overall, this is a very good game and a must play for anyone who loves Transformers. The storyline is top-notch and adds a massive chunk of lore to the transformers universe by answering the question of how he became Prime and why they left Cybertron.
As a FPS game... its not perfect.
It suffers from one MAJOR issue, which I really can't understand how the designers allowed this. Its simply unbalanced in terms of ammunition and health pick-ups!
I can think of countless times during the game, either in a normal fight or against a boss, where I simply ran out of ammunition because there was NONE around to pick up, and was close to death because there was also NO health pick-ups.
It results in some of the most frustrating and insain gaming i've experienced in years.
I had a situation where I was fighting one of the harder enemies who carries a sheild for around 16 minute because I had NO ammunition in either my two weapons or my vehicle mode. I was also very low on health and none to collect.
I had to wait for my 2 A.I controlled characters kill him... slowly while I took the occasional swipe with my axe. It took a while and involved a lot of shouting.
This situation is unfortunately made 10 times worse because this game can throw LOTS of enemies at you at one time. Some fight sequences seem to go on a long time, and some enemies or boss fights can be harsh.
Another thing which you may find weird ingame, is that your Vehicle based weapon has a limited amount of ammuntion too. You would expect the transformers main, body weapon (which they use while either as a jet or a car) to be limitless incase your main hand weapon ran out? But no!!!
It also can run out... hence the reason you find yourself unable to attack anything. And the hand-to-hand fighting is useless and just results in you taking a lot of damage.
Its a shame, because if it wasnt for frustration caused by bad resourcing of ammuntion and health, this would be an amazing game!! And I mean amazing!
The online deathmatches are a lot of fun too.
The game has two other, lesser, issues unfortunately.
1) The cut-scenes suffer from BAD, and I mean BAD... screen taring. You can see the pre-rendered scenes finding it hard to render correctly and you get massive drops in animation rate. You also have times when the ingame animation suffers taring and loading times can just drop it to a halt.
2) The game ALWAYS does a "checking" thing at the start, aftering putting the disc in... which can take a while!
Ignoring those two small issues... and that MAJOR one with design... this is a great game worth playing. Mostly for the storyline.
