Transformers is something that has stuck with me since childhood and with the glut of recent movies in the past few years the obsession has never really went away. What also has stuck with me is the never ending series of games related to the subject. Always towards the top of the games charts, especially at Xmas, these titles will be with us for some time yet. I usually tend to avoid games based on the latest movies as they tend to be made with little effort and the only objective of making as much money as possible from the tie in with the movie.
Transformers Dark of the Moon almost bucks that trend......only kidding, this is another terrible game with so many flaws I really do not know where to begin. This is a contender, no infact this could very well be, the single worst game I have ever had the utter misfortune of playing. These are hours of my life that I will not get back. It pains me to think.....
Where to start? Well the best piece of advice I can give is even if this game is in your local shop and they offer to pay you £100 to take it off their hands...don't. Your life is better not even knowing this game exists.
The first is the sheer ugliness of the game. It looks hideous on any tv screen and is offensive to anyone with even the slightest interest in graphics. There is blurring, slowdown and the graphics are so very very poor that you cannot even tell.
The main focus of the game involves driving around......well attempting to. The controls simply do not allow it, they prevent you from having any fun at all in fact. Moving the wii remote round and round with your eyes closed will give you about as much control as this game....thats how bad it really really is!
You do the same thing over and over again in the battle arenas, the same cheap tactics, the same set pieces, it really is awful, hideous and totally boring gameplay. You see the same things over and over and the gameplay is dull. Repetitive moves, matches and needs. There is little point to the game apart from destruction which is very unsatisfying. You will tire after the first one!
All in all this is the worst game on the Wii I have ever made. So badly made, so terribly put together and so darn right poor it should be a crime.
You have been warned!
