Lately I’ve heard a lot of talk and done alot of thinking about gamerscore and completion rates on games. Of course, everyone is impressed by insanely high gamerscores, but is that as impressive as completing a game to a full 1000 gamer points? Or is it a combination of both which earns you the title of “hardcore”? Because let’s face it. Achievements, at least on the 360, have become a big part of gaming. Getting 5 points for kicking a chicken or starting a new adventure may be so easy it makes you feel dirty, but at the same time (for me anyway) they make me want to play harder to complete a game or play through it on the hardest difficulty possible (which I’ll probably get my ass kicked doing so, but that just makes it more sweet when I beat it).
I’ve never really been a big fan of Transformers. I can’t actually tell the difference between Starscream and Jetfire. So I was abit apprehensive picking up this game. However, I needn’t have worried.. This game delivered.
It’s a short game, so unless you’re a hardcore Transformers fan who won’t mind slaving away in multiplayer mode, pick it up as a rental for the single-player. It’s true what they say, it feels like a Gears of War game. It has epic set pieces, good combat, and the characters mesh well. But because it involves alien robots, it shakes things up abit!
