Transformers – Consumer Guide

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Fantasy Violence

Parents
should keep kids away unless they're up for a real challenge because the game is excessively difficult, even on the easiest setting. Between getting killed by swarming enemies and stumbling around looking for powerups, it's a perfect recipe for frustration. The only violent contents are gunfire and exploding robots… extremely tame stuff. There is no sexual content and no questionable language.

Action gamers will find a simplistic third-person shooter that has great graphics and little else.

Transformers fans will love the nostalgic extras and bonus goodies to be unlocked, but the game doesn't have much going for it gameplay-wise. It's the best Transformers game to be sure, but that's not really saying much.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers get the shaft. There is no text for any of the cutscenes, although in-mission briefings have it. It's all right if you don't care about the thin plot, but it's still a half-assed job providing accessibility.
