Delivering extensive control, gamers can select from the largest, most diverse range of playable Transformers ever – each with distinct personalities, abilities and weaponry – and jump straight into action as they instantly switch between robot, vehicle and weapon modes to fight for the preservation or annihilation of all mankind. In addition, for the first time in the Transformers universe, players can also fight the epic war between Autobots and Decepticons online in explosive multiplayer combat.

The Story
Set a few years after the defeat of Megatron in the first game/movie, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen reveals that the threat from the Decepticons is in fact, far from ended. Since the time of the epic and apparently not so final battle between the two Transformer leaders, Decepticons have started popping up again all over Earth in alarming numbers. And now, a mysterious object from space seems destined to shift the balance of power and give the upper hand to the Decepticons.

Mission-centric Gameplay
Unlike Activision’s Transformers: The Game, released along side the original movie back in 2007, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen relies less on open-world gameplay and more on structured, but varied mission play. The variety in these missions comes from the fact that players can align themselves with either the Autobots or Decepticons, and that the available missions both parallel the events of the movie, as well as events unique to the game. During these missions players will be able to play as a variety of different Transformers from either side of the conflict, and with success in mission play will be able to unlock additional Transformers and earn points used to upgrade your selected faction. Playable characters include on the Autobot side: Optimus Prime, Iron Hide, Breakaway, Bumblebee, and Ratchet; and from the Decepticon side: Starscream, Sideways (a new character), Grindor, Long Haul, and Megatron. Additional Transformer types will be available in multiplayer modes. The game features a simple control toggle that not only allows for quick switching between mech, vehicle and weapon forms, but also allows for a more easy learning curve of the acrobatic moves from the movie.

Key Features

  • The Choice is Yours – Players can step into the shoes of their favorite Autobots and Decepticons such as Optimus Prime, Starscream, Bumblebee and Ironhide, along with new characters making their first appearance in a game. With two distinct campaigns that allow gamers to save or destroy the human race, gamers will unlock missions and be able to play them in any order they desire and with different characters for a whole new experience.
  • Outmaneuver Your Opponents – Instantaneously convert from a colossal robot to a dynamic land or air vehicle such as a diesel truck, sports car, military chopper or fighter jet. New, ultra-fluid transformations can be performed in-motion anytime and anywhere, allowing players to strategically propel through and decimate hordes of enemies with incredible agility.
  • Take the Battle Online with Friends – For the first time ever in the Transformers universe, gamers can engage in full multiplayer action, taking the epic war between the Autobots and Decepticons online to play with friends in a multitude of competitive game modes as they utilize their characters’ unique weapons and abilities to lead their teams to victory.
  • Demolish Your Enemies – Each Transformer can unleash a unique array of assaults on its enemies ranging from powerful missile attacks and rapid-fire chain guns to explosive energy blasts and visceral melee strikes, allowing players to pick from a variety of weapons and moves in their character’s arsenal that deliver diverse gameplay in every brutal encounter.
  • Intense, Heroic Missions – Every second is precious as players drive, fly, fight and blast their way through gripping, pulse-pounding levels straight from the film and beyond to determine the ultimate fate of the world.

Multiplayer Options
One of the major improvements of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen over any previous Transformers releases is its extensive multiplayer options, both locally and online, co-op and versus. These modes include standard head-to-head/team options such as Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, but also unique modes like ‘One Shall Stand’ where players must take out the opposing leader, ‘Control Points’ where teams struggle to control specific map points at specific times, and ‘Battle for the Shards’ which is a ‘capture the flag’ variant tasking teams to collect and hold all the pieces of the destroyed Allspark from the 2007 film.

    Picked this up for my son, and was very impressed with it. Good action, great graphics, a blast to play overall. My itches with it were relatively minor, but they did hinder my enjoyment.

    1) Lack of quality voice acting from the movie, or the series. Even though it’s the same actors from the movie, the voices just don’t sound right. It serves to pull you out a bit when the voices are so different, but that could just be a diehard fan like me.

    2) Having to hold the transform button down to stay in vehicle mode. When Optimus rolls out, I doubt it’s a conscious effort to stay in that form.

    3) The mission style of gameplay is a bit dated, especially when you don’t get any free roam capabilities, which would have made this game 10x better.

    4) Multiplayer is only over the internet, no 2 player splitscreen co-op, or even deathmatch. This is very lame, especially with this generation of consoles, this should be standard.

    Other than that, it really is a fun game for what it is, but very much linear.

    Transformers revenge of the fallen makes for a good purchase but I don’t think it has enough replay value to justify its price unless you enjoy online multiplayer or if you enjoy collecting games like me ^^
    Mission enviornments are nicely done and usually there are large amounts of destructable objects in each level.
    Autobot and Decepticon models look good, are highly detailed with nice textures and everything is scaled correctly in game.
    Each mission takes place on a open-map,some maps have pedestrians and vehicles that walk and drive around the city that can be either crushed or destroyed ^^

    Free roam is nice but there are no enemies to fight, it would’ve been nice if the developer luxoflux had added bots and possibly a skirmish mode like they had in Vigilante 8 and Second offense to give the game more replayability, I know that may be asking too much considering this is a movie licensed game…One negative is when the robot transforms to a vehicle we can’t stop or reverse, the vehicle is always zooming forward, Its frustrating.

    I completed both campaigns in about 8 hours but I was taking my time and having fun exploring the maps, blasting enemies and laying waste to enviornmental objects, I really like stepping on the tiny little pedestrians ^^
    14 zones containing 23 missions take place in such exotic locations such as the American east and west coast, the Atlantic ocean, Egypt and China.

    The enemy AI seems intelligent enough to provide some fun, they will climb buildings or transform between different vehicles but they usually don’t present much of a challenge.

    I recommend it… Its fun, looks nice graphically, provides a fair challenge but doesn’t have much replay value unless you play the missions over and over or play online.

    The last Transformers video game is too difficult for my son. However, my son is having a blast with this Revenge of the Fallen game! Our household really loves Transformers and saw the movie on opening night,so we all get into this game. The game is so exciting to play. My son is still getting used to the controls but he’s doing well enough to advance pretty good through the game since he’s had it over the past two days. He will be starting preschool in a couple of months. I usually don’t let him play a game as much at one time like I have been but he’s amazing me and my husband, and my husband loves playing it with him even though he’s not the gaming type. It was worth the money spent already!
