Transformers the Game on the Xbox 360

This is the forum to discuss all of those video games you love playing or that are coming out. From Transformers video games to Fighting games to Sports games ... whatever makes you a happy Seibertronian. Just keep it the topics and conversations game and console related.

It is a fun game, but is far from perfect.

The graphics and sound on the 360 are pretty sharp. Nothing spectacular though, and I have noted some clipping and other glitches. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say 8 / 10.

Gameplay is okay. The missions and even the action get repetitive. Shooting is often a waste of time and it is more effective to just keep smashing your melee attack button.

The biggest problem is driving, especially with Bumblebee in the Hoover Dam missions. It feels like you are driving on ice! The car seems to float and it is easy to catch yourself bouncing from wall to wall. I also find myself just transforming to bot mode to get unstuck and turned the right way. Gameplay I's rate a 7 out of 10, because smashing stuff as a big TF is still fun.

Overall, this is a mediocre game escalated to a must have game (for me anyway) simply because it is Transformers.
You know, it's weird how people keep going on about how the driving is bad....but it really never seemed to be a problem to me. I dunno, maybe I'm just better at driving than the average person. ;)
