Like the movie it’s based on, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen isn’t trying to radically change the genre or introduce innovative new features. It’s giving you great-looking robots that go off and fight other great-looking robots as you watch the resulting explosions. The game takes the best part of the first Transformers game (the robots) and wraps it up in a satisfying combat engine and a mission structure that encourages you to replay the game. For these reasons, fans of the film or the first game, especially younger gamers, will have a great time playing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Still, there are plenty of great things in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen to warrant purchasing it. I haven't even talked about the multiplayer, which is awesome when you've got a full roster of robots in the fray, and the extra missions and unlockable content are enough incentive to replay the main game as both Autobot and Decepticon factions. If you like Transformers, buy this game. Even if you don't (or you just hate Michael Bay), you should still give Optimus Prime a try.

There will be plenty of debate as to whether Michael Bay is systematically destroying every shred of our robot-fueled childhoods or not, but I do have to admit that this title is better than its predecessor. While the free-roaming world doesn’t quite deliver on its promise, and the voice work may force me to commit murder, the multiplayer does deliver in spades. The single player feels like multiplayer arenas with a bit of storyline tacked on, but it works in a somewhat disjointed way. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a title that almost works. Perhaps the next title will take that final leap towards making a free-roaming Transformers world that all fans desire, but in the mean time, this isn’t a bad title – as far as movie tie-ins go.
GameSpot (Jun 24, 2009)
Though it isn't immediately accessible, Revenge of the Fallen has a good amount of fun and satisfying gameplay. The initial awkwardness of the controls is a bit vexing, and some issues linger no matter how good you get. The single-player missions and multiplayer game modes aren't very diverse, but the various bonus challenges and strategic nuances add some welcome depth. What Revenge of the Fallen does best is make it fun to be a Transformer by giving you a powerful set of abilities and open maps where you can put them to use. It's enjoyable and engaging, and it's probably the best Transformers product you'll see this summer.
Game Chronicles (Jun 24, 2009)
So my final score is based entirely on my personal experience with the game and the franchise. Fans will certainly enjoy all aspects of Revenge of the Fallen much more than I did, so take my review and the score with a grain of salt and adjust for your own love of the Transformer universe.
GamingBolt (Sep 18, 2009)
We continue to see movie games fail to live up to their movie counterpart. As far as movie titles go, this one is top notch and seems like some legitimate effort was put in to make it more than just a movie tie in, but compared to what other games are out there, it falls short of greatness. If you really like the Transformers and want to take them online for some fun multiplayer action then by all means pick this game up, it will not disappoint. If however you were looking for an engaging story or anything you can’t find in your run of the mill movie tie in game then stay away, this game will only disappoint.

Au rayon des adaptations de films, Transformers : La Revanche figure clairement en tête de gondole. S’il souffre d’une réalisation moyenne et d’un manque de diversité de l’action, ce soft est une bonne manière de prolonger l’expérience cinématographique en incarnant Optimus Prime et ses potes.
Cheat Code Central (Jun, 2009)
With the multiplayer being its biggest redeeming quality, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen doesn’t really improve upon the formula of the first title. If anything, it takes a step or two back overall when it comes to the single-player experience. If you are looking to play a game to get the experience of multiplayer while not actually being online, this may be the game you’ve been looking for. While the fun of giant robot battles may draw you in, the multiplayer experience will keep you coming back to this title. Even with all its problems, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ranks up there with most worthy movie-based games.
UOL Jogos (Jun 23, 2009)
"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" é mais um daqueles temíveis jogos baseados em filme que prometem grande produção, mas decepcionam. Ainda que não seja o pior do mercado, com personagens bacanas e momentos de grande ação, falha em deixar qualquer marca e logo se apaga diante da concorrência mais sofisticada. É um típico produto que agrada somente aos fãs mais ardorosos da linha de brinquedos e seus derivados ou aqueles que buscam por uma diversão casual com elementos de fácil reconhecimento.
IGN (Jun 23, 2009)
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen comes up short in a number of categories, due in large part to its repetition, odd control layout, poor AI and almost total lack of presentation. Running around and just shooting stuff has its merits, though it does get old after a bit. At least the multiplayer offers up a pretty good time for when you tire of the short single-player game.
1UP (Jun 24, 2009)
If nothing else, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is an apt representation of what you'd expect from a Transformers movie: a disposable, explosion-laden piece of mindless entertainment featuring robots beating the crap out of each other. And judging from the movie reviews, it actually sounds like this solid, if flawed, action game might turn out to be better than the movie. That is another fact that my six-year-old self would not have believed if I used a time machine to relay it to him.

Sorry, Luxoflux - das war nix! Dass man technisch nicht mehr als nötig macht und bei weitem nicht den liebevollen Detailgrad von z.B. Kung Fu Panda erreicht, kann man noch hinnehmen. Dass man für die im Durchschnitt etwa fünf Minuten dauernden Missionen eine gefühlt ebenso lange Dialog- und Ladezeit in Kauf nehmen muss, stört nur kaum. Und selbst an die unglücklich belegte Steuerung, die den kurzfristig aufkeimenden Spaß immer wieder sabotiert, kann man sich gewöhnen. Dass die Missionen auf Dauer allerdings so monoton sind und die Kampagnen bis auf zu wenige Ausnahmen zu gleichförmig verlaufen, muss man Luxoflux übel nehmen. Wo die letzte Lizenzumsetzung der Kalifornier berechtigte Hoffnung machte, dass Spiele zu Filmen nicht immer Stangenware oder gar Schrott sein müssen, könnte man bei Transformers – Die Rache schnell eine andere Meinung gewinnen. Selbst Ice Age 3 ist inhaltlich und spielmechanisch liebevoller designt.
Jeuxvideo.com (Jun 26, 2009)
De A à Z, cette adaptation du second film inspiré par les Transformers est un échec. Prise en main absurde, intérêt absent, level-design tenant de la farce, même la signature de la franchise, la transformation qui lui donne pourtant son nom, n'est pas exploitée correctement.
