All I can is this game is awesome! GS gave it a bad review for no reason. Check the other reviews to see for yourself. Sure the game had some problems but they just recently sent out a patch and the game looks and feels even better than before. If you are a fan of Transformers you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy. See you on line with some Death Match or Conquest.
It looks good. Screw the GS rating, I'm going to buy it. 850 people can't give a bad game an 8.7 rating.
I've stopped using GS as a site to find reviews. I don't mind people having a different opinion than me as well as it's well thought out. GS, X-play had all, if not more, of the same complaints that you did and they gave it a 4 out of 5. IGN gave it a 9. But these are only a few examples, for more go and check out the 850 GS users who gave up an average score of 8.7. I guess in the end it really doesn't matter. GS usually screws over my really good games, they did the same thing with Too Human
I have the game and i have to say that it is amazing!! The campaign and multiplayer are really good, and here we go as Gamespot saying "This is not a Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto game, let's give it a 6". BS
It's no suprise that unless GS was playing a COD clone IE big inflated guns, and objective markers, and dumber then dumb AI that stand there and take shots at you while you use cover it's not COOL in their eyes. The biggest complaint I had was that the MP tends to drop players off the console as a whole when a host leaves that was it. He complained about lack of ammo and clear objectives and dumb AI. Well for starters he ran by Ammo at every turn. I found ammo boxes all over the place, in fact more ammo then I needed at times. He also skiped out on health pick ups in boss fights constantly, and could not drive to save his soul. Plus the fallowing sites gave this game an 7 or higher score: IGN 9.0, Destructoid 8.0, G4TV! Frikken G4! 8.5, Game Informer 9.5, Game Trailers 7.7 (Not bad but not great he at least stated that he was not a fan so he was going for just gaming stuff, still he did say that it was a worth while game to pick up, or at least try out) Heck Euro Gamer was also smug about it by slamming the game out right with a 6.0 the lowest score yet. It seems only the hardcore COD fans in reviewers get miffed about it taking some parts of COD, and Gears and mixing them togather so well.
