Megahit action films and games tie-ins are joining soda and garden chair on the list of summer icons. PSP users have wanted to blend those characteristics by going outdoors with the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The 3rd person run-and-gun shooting game is ultimately usable, however the badly tuned gameplay is boring at best and worsening at worst. Although blasting your ways through swarms of hostile robots can be gratifying, the spotty gaming mechanics, clumsy melee control, dull visuals, and awful sound FX badly mute the appealingness. There's a significant quantity of gaming at this position, but you will be hard pressed to catch any excitement.
Frequently, though, you will just be running and shooting manoeuvering your way around hostile fire. Although the maneuver is working and passably stimulating, it is not exciting. You are facing a similar oppositions and repetiting a similar formula again and again (there is a two players Challenge mode if you prefer to do them all in an arena). Additionally, the aforesaid problems, oppositions will at times run onscreen while shooting at several entirely different directions. Those rough edges give the entire PSP game a slapped together feeling. Revenge of the Fallen must try extremely hard to keep the baffling gameplay and second-rate presentation successfully on track, and it does not have any vitality available to entertain you.
