Transformers: Dark of the Moon - The Game Review - Xbox 360 Review at IGN
Expected, but irrelevant. I always buy the TF movie games from a bargain bin anyway.
Interesting read. Still might try this out at some point but I'm more looking forward to WFC 2 if it happens.
Main problem with this review for the general public is, if you didn't adore WFC, it's completely useless. I did love WFC, but since I also love movieverse aesthetics, I'm happy with it. You may not be, but of course, not being happy is the right of all sentient beings.
Also, not the first review. Game Informer was.
Did they play this game at all?
Meh, I'm having fun with it so far, so I could care less.
Though the comment saying it got a higher score then Duke Nukem I found pretty funny.
EDIT: Also, their reasoning that time was the reason DotM didn't come out better then WfC is what I've been saying in the official discussion thread. This was made in less then a year. Your game isn't going to be perfect if you have to construct it in such a short time.
IGN tends to shit on everything... read their Crysis 2 review and you'll see what I mean. This is still a must buy for me, I'll settle for this even if it isn't as good as WFC. Since the general mechanics are there, then its good enough for me.
now that this is out I await finding ROTF in the super bargain bin
It's a great bargain no matter what price you get for it. Best TF game ever.
Review seems pretty spot on. The game is good, but not great. Definitely worth playing, but $60 is a little steep for the amount of content you're getting, and the quality of said content.
The writer points out that. In the part talking about problems Movie Games face.
Yeah, I know.....that's why I said "Their reasoning".
I will be honest, I haven't played this game, but I have read reviews from IGN that sound like they didn't play beyond a couple hours. They would blatantly get something wrong by saying "the game works like this..." but said game only works like that in the first level or so. Also, when they do that, they give seemingly middle-of-the-way scores, like a 6, so that if the game is actually considered better by a lot of people then they were just being subjective, or the other way around.
Whatever the case, I am a little concerned about how long the campaign is. I found War for Cybertron's length ok, but anything shorter really may not be worth full price.
Now Gamespot has put up there review of it.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon Review, Transformers: Dark of the Moon PS3 Review - GameSpot.com
Eh, I don't agree with the graphics and vehicle physics complaints.
The graphics may not be face-meltingly awesome, but they're far from bad. There was a part of Mirage's level where, [spoilers]while you and Bumblebee are decenting on a Mayan temple[/spoilers], there's an instance where the setting sun starts peeking through the dense leaves of a tree and you get a bit of flare on your screen. I was kinda impressed by that.
As for the vehicles, they feel like earth mode versions of the WfC vehicles, only with a bit more control. It makes me wonder if they were using the drift button in normal vehicle mode, which makes the vehicle easier to control. Also don't agree with the "vehicle weapons aren't powerful" point. They all have their pros and cons. The sub machine guns are good for close range, the missiles for long.
Telling ya man, I am never buying another movie at full 60 bucks again. NEVER!
First movie, bust. ROTF, OK but nothing special. I'm going in with low expectations and buying at 40 dollars shipped Amazon at the most.
WFC is by far the best that I have played.
Of course, I'll know for sure once I get my hands on DOTM.
here's another review, and it's positive
Transformers: Dark of the Moon Review - review and rating for Xbox 360 platform
Dudes, don't get all upset that the normals don't like the latest Transformers games. From what I've seen, this is a fair review for a mediocre-looking game.
A bad review (or preview) is one where the author makes it clear that they don't like the movies/the aesthetic style and then proceed to let that colour the rest of the article.
