Guide to Transformers on the PlayStation 3
The Transformers have been around since 1984 in various forms on TV, on the shelves of stores as toys, as games, and most recently in a live action movie! So for those Transformers fans out there, we are going to have a look at the game based on the new movie currently in theatres.
Transformers on PS3 is a relatively cool game. The first pleasant aspect of it is that you can choose whose side you want to be on from the beginning of the game, either the Autobots or the Decepticons. This is not always an easy decision so try it both ways, play the PlayStation 3 Transformers game twice! For a bit of added replay value you can unlock several alternate versions of characters (the original version of Optimus Prime, Jazz, Starscream and Megatron as they looked from the cartoon along with another Optimus Prime version) through the collection of icons throughout the game or completing either story.
If you choose the Autobots side, the story of the game is pretty much the same as in the movie. If you take the Decepticons side, the story will take a "what if the Decepticons won?" twist to the gameplay. There are many robots in the Transformers game but there are nine that you can play as, there are four Autobots (Optimus Prime, Jazz, Bumblebee and Ironhide) that can turn into numerous vehicles and there are five Decepticons (Starscream, Blackout, Barricade, Scorponok and Megatron) that can morph into awesome and dangerous aircrafts.
Transformers is a rather short game. If you are flying or driving it will take anywhere from half a minute to two minutes to get to the other side of the border in the Transformers world. In all the levels you will encounter areas like subways, military installations, rural regions and massive cities that have very tall buildings forming artificial crayons. Almost everything you come across on the game can be destroyed.
Every one of the campaigns on the Transformers game involves four different levels and every level has five missions. All over the world in the game there are 100 energy cubes that have to be collected. Once you find twenty you will unlock something, and every time you find another twenty, you will unlock something new. These are the smaller missions and by completing them you will unlock other cool bonuses such as Movie art, skins, TV openers and much more. The cubes are relatively easy to find because they glow but it is easier to locate them on the levels that you play nighttime, although there are a few that are slightly more difficult to find.
The overall graphics of the Transformers on PS3 are pretty good. The characters are portrayed very well but the only downfall of this is that the same things appear too often, like there are too many of the same buildings and cars where there could be all different types. This is also a little bit confusing as you might think you are back at the same place you were earlier in the game. Another negative point is that the PlayStation 3 Transformers game doesn’t have a multiplayer mode.
The cut scenes are brilliant, the lighting effects are good and the effects of the weapons are also great. The voices of the characters are exceptional as well as the other audio sounds. One of the plus signs for this game is including voice actors Peter Cullin and Frank Welker. They were the original voices for Autobot leader Optimus Prime and Decepticon commander Megatron, respectively, from the 80's cartoon. Hearing their voices in these roles again just feels right.
Those who enjoyed the movie and long time TransFormers fans may well find themselves liking this game. The more hardcore "purist" fans, however, may find themselves turned off by the new look of their favorite characters. With the aforementioned amount of playtime most gamers probably could finish this game over a rental period. Still, the PS3 version of the game is worth checking out.
