Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a Racing game. Racing games, although sometimes seen as a sporting sub category, are a well established video game genre in their own right.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience.
