I have never played any Transformers game in the PSP so when I chanced upon Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen based on the hit movie, I was overly excited to download and try it out. This third-person run-and-gun shooter game is bad … and boring.
You cannot transform at will, only when you activate your special powerup move will your character be able to transform. Then you will have to watch a few seconds worth of action scene from that powerup before your character transforms back to robot mode and that’s it. You cannot manually control your chosen robot at will to transform to vehicle and back. Plus, I was pissed when I played the Demolisher character of the Decepticons. This character suddenly turns itself 180 degrees even when I did not do anything to make it turn around. Add the game’s unwieldy character movement control and this game totally sucks.
While the game follows the movie’s plot and storyline, the fact that you have to switch between Autobot and Decepticon campaign after almost every mission is accomplished is annoying. It has been only a few levels that I played this game and I totally lost my appetite for it. Transformers fans may not care what the game offers but this is a disappointing game.
Time to surf for cheat codes so I can finish this game up and go on to the next game …
