The game was developed by High Moon Studios who just last year released the well-received Transformers: War For Cybertron, things are looking up for this movie tie-in. While it may suffer from that dreaded genre label, High Moon Studios proved with War For Cybertron that they are more than capable of taking the beloved Transformers universe and turning it into a third-person shooter while maintaining a compelling plot and entertaining gameplay.
Now, with the upcoming release of Dark Of The Moon, it looks as though they will be bringing back everything gamers loved about War For Cybertron while also adding new ways to play and refining the previous game’s strong multiplayer component.
Looking similar to the previous game’s multiplayer, in Dark Of The Moon, gamers will take on the role of an Autobot or Decepticon, in a squad-based environment, in order to wreck havoc on enemies. If the gameplay is indeed similar to War For Cybertron, gamers can expect some incredibly fast-paced, frantic action as they dash around the battlefield blowing up the competition.
Between the chaotic third-person gameplay and multiplayer, the gorgeous screenshots, and the pre-order bonuses that are available, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon is looking like it will manage to break free of the movie tie-in label — and stand on its own as an entertaining and engaging gaming experience.
