Transformers Dark of the Moon Review (XBOX 360)
Essay On Why Do I Like My School Last year one of the most surprising game releases in terms of quality was Transformers: War for Cybertron. Rarely do games based on movie or TV tie-ins work but High Noon Studios had developed a game which brought the world of Autobots and Decepticons to life, packing it with action and delivering it with some good visuals and decent audio. We had a lot of fun playing through the game and recommend any Transformers fan pick it up, especially now it is likely to be a low price game.

This therefore creates several styles of gameplay within each level as the various forms play completely differently. Our robot form is very weapon and interaction orientated so can fire off shots from the two main guns as well as perform special moves, for example a spin attack. Using the first chapter as an example, we also plant virus files in systems and disable equipment in robot form. When things get tough we move to Stealth mode where our ammo is unlimited and the vehicle form factor is more resilient to damage, this mode also feels different as rather than be a clunky/heavy bot we are, for example, a mix of car and hover ship. Then in full vehicle mode we are unable to fly but can travel from location to location much faster than in the other forms.
That’s it though in terms of the single player campaign… play through a number of chapters as various bot’s who all have different abilities and a few weapons each in an attempt to save Earth. Nice and simple… as we would expect from an action movie tie-in.
In addition to the single player campaign DotM also offers online multiplayer modes, three in fact. We get deathmatch, team deathmatch and a capture the flag/king of the hill style hybrid. In each we get to play as Transformers and of course can still transform between forms as we wish which really sets this games multiplayer apart from the average shooter.
Adding further value to the game are a selection of unlockables which range from video segments to extra characters for use in multiplayer. Then we have the standard achievements which add points to our Xbox profile as we progress.

The characters are also well realised and immediately recognisable as the characters from the Transformers universe.
There is however one significant issue, at least on the 360 version of the game, and that is slowdown. When we get a lot of enemies on screen, or some larger explosions the framerate does suffer and that can be distracting.
Audio wise the score is reasonable but it is the voice acting which really adds to the game, not because the script is particularly great but because having Optimus Prime voiceover any title is going to enhance it.

There are a few issues, for example the framerate drops during demanding sections and the fact that on occasion the levels launch with the gun set to auto fire (until paused/unpaused) however the overall control mechanic is good and the variation in styles appreciated as we move from chapter to chapter changing location, character and weapons.
A unique multiplayer experience adds longer term value to the game and overall it is a fun title which is ideal for playing in advance of seeing the film, or afterwards to relive some explosive action… just don’t expect a deep plot or a particularly challenging campaign.
Fans of the Transformers franchise will get a kick out of fighting alongside Optimus Prime when he drops in to assist in our battle with the Decepticons, we certainly did.
