Where to start? This is a pretty good game. The story is top notch for Transformers. It's interesting without being overly complex or trying to be something more than it is. The co-op is gone, making the campaign more story driven, though this makes the campaign seem gimmicky at times. The ability to buy and upgrade your weapons is a really nice feature.
The graphics are really detailed. Transformers have a nice glossy look. The locations are more varied. The music is pretty epic and times and always sets the mood for the action. The voice acting is great.
The Escalation or "horde" mode is remade and well done. The waves only go to 15 but you have multiple tries to complete, which MAY make it to easy for some, but there is always hard mode. Everyone in the lobby can choose their own difficulty without effecting everyone else.
Now we get to where most people spend their time on this game. Multiplayer. This game has some SERIOUS balance issues. There's always something over powered and annoying you have to deal with. And the players are VERY annoying. Everything from kill stealers and campers (on the convoy map ALL you ever see are jets camping at the top) and the heavy classes dominate everything. This game is just not suited for competitive play. If you want a good competitive game, go for War for Cybertron. The PvP in this game is just for joking around.
I give this game a 7/10. It has a great singleplayer experience and fun co-op.
