Transformers: The Game

It was looking good there for a while. Thirtysomething males were enjoying the resurgence of the must-have toy of the 80s: The Transformers. There was a pretty decent stab at a console title, then a summer blockbuster movie.
And now comes the game of the movie of the toy. And the whole thing is transformed into a stinking pile of mechanical slag. Man, this sucks! No matter what side you pick, what mission you choose, what morphing behemoth you manipulate, the outcome is always the same. Crippling disappointment. Combat is tedious and repetitive, the environments are dull and ugly, collision detection is random and control is twitchy. An absolute stinker.
