Here's a poem a wrote while playing, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.


Transformers, more than meets the eye.
Cars that race, and jets that screech throughout the virtual skies.
Transformers, robots in disguise.
Be the good guys or the bad, oh yes these guys are wise.

You see they double the games length by giving you two sides,
It also gives you chance for once to be the evil guys.
Which although morally wrong, is really really fun.
Cos itís seldom that Iíve played a game where the bad guys won!

The thing about it though is that it is an average game,
I find myself praising it lots, even though parts are lame.
So why am I so lenient? Two reasons spring to mind.
So sit back folks and listen up, if you would be so kind.

Point one is that itís based on a big summer blockbuster,
And most film to game conversions leaves me bothered hot and flustered!
As  98.5 percent of them are positively poo.
They are wastes of disc space, rushed out tie-ins, they belong in the loo.

Whereas Transformers honestly is not that bad at all,
Compared to all its genre brothers itís actually on the ball.
So average when compared to other better games out there,
But side by side with film based games stands out beyond compare.

Point two is a bonus system that rewards your game persistence,
It gives you many things that give the game a timeless existence.
The greatest being actual episodes from the 80ís show,
With television programs as rewards I want the world to know.

Well the games world anyway that YES this is the way to be.
Give away new levels, or movies or such if you wanna sell your game to me.
Concept art is boring, character picccys too.
And the worst is movies that you saw while playing the game BOOOO!

So take a leaf out of rises book and give me free tv!
Goldeneye gave me levels and that was good enough for me.
So because of clever marketing and a game that isnít dire.
Iíll recommend this game, as the transformers are on fire!

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.

What sort of gamer are you?
