GameInformer: "Sadly, being great compared to some recent abysmal licensed projects does not necessarily make it excellent compared to everything else. Character movement is sluggish, even for a game about giant robots. Aiming and hit detection feel iffy, partially due to a number of weapons with seemingly arbitrary hit zones. Any given level is made up of the same tiles again and again, contributing to a sense that everything looks somewhat the same.
If you’re excited about the movie or characters, for once this is an easy game to recommend. There’s nothing here that should scare away fans, and any player ought to appreciate the way each game level feels unique from the last. After this game and last year’s War For Cybertron, High Moon has proven they’ve got the chops to handle and understand the Transformers, no matter what continuity they’re playing around in. Here’s hoping that Hasbro and Activitision recognizes the talent, and continues to give the team the creative freedom they deserve."
