Kombo: Potential ran high with the first Transformers game, released alongside the original film in 2007. However, a variety of issues plagued the game, including control problems, repetitiveness in gameplay, and the sort of general blandness that is so often associated with license-based titles. But good news awaits for Transformers fans out there: your game has arrived.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen fixes many of the problems associated with the first title. Activision, and developer Luxoflux, took the widespread criticism of the first game to heart and resolved to fix these issues in pursuit of a better game experience. The game shares at least one similarity with the original, in that players can choose to side with either the Autobots or the Decepticons. Depending on which side players choose, different objectives will have to be met. For example, Autobots may be tasked with protecting the same city that the Decepticons are out to destroy. The original game made it unpopular to play as the Autobots as it penalized players for collateral damage. This time around, the game's rules seem more understanding about the fact that gigantic robots doing battle throughout major cities are going to leave a couple potholes behind.
