Transformers: Dark of the Moon will make you want to throw your Wii Remote out of the nearest window. Surprisingly, Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a rare double atrocity in bad taste. Not only is it a terrible game, but it's also responsible for the 3DS port of the same name. And like the 3DS version, you still can't transform into a giant robot. It's pretty much the same story as the the Nintendo 3DS version, with a few key differences. Visually, the Wii version doesn't look much better than the 3DS one, and the controls are even worse. Driving is only controlled with the Wii Nunchuk's analog stick (no accelerate/brake buttons), and transforming into "Stealth Force" mode throws the D-Pad on the Wii Remote into the mix, but just for turning left and right. It controls a little better than the 3DS version nonetheless, but that's like saying chewing sand is better than eating broken glass. Dark of the Moon on Wii is even structurally the same as the 3DS game -- 18 missions, all of which are focused on making you play tag and fetch at the same. Kill enemies, run of out "Stealth Force" juice, find power-ups, kill more enemies -- it's boring and tedious.
Let me preface by saying that I am not a child of the 80s, and therefore have no particular love for the beloved transforming robot cars that dominated the children's entertainment of that era. Nor do I have any interest in the recent Hollywood blockbusters based on the same franchise, having been only mildly entertained by the sheer ridiculousness of the first installment, which is barely enough reason to subject myself to more of Michael Bay's nonsense. Reading all that, you'd probably think me the perfect candidate for reviewing a Transformers game. I booted up the latest with low expectations, and who could blame me? The gaming public has come to equate licensed games with shovelware, and having endured the awful graphics and monotonous gameplay of this clunker, it's clear Transformers: Dark of the Moon: Stealth Force Edition for the Nintendo Wii is no exception to the rule. Let's address the game's most obvious and, quite honestly, ridiculous misstep. Transformers is a franchise about cars that transform into giant robots. Now let's take a look at that statement very quickly, from cars into robots. This is the entire allure of the franchise: the idea that something as common as a consumer vehicle could suddenly morph into a giant battle robot ready for action.
What makes a Transformer a Transformer? You don't need to know the difference between Soundwave and Shockwave to know that it's their ability to change from robots into vehicles, weapons, boom boxes, and other things that defines the Transformers. How strange it is, then, that Transformers: Dark of the Moon: Stealth Force Edition strips the robots in disguise of this quintessential characteristic. Here, you're limited to the Transformers' vehicle forms and their "stealth force" forms, which are slower, more maneuverable versions of their vehicle forms with weapons attached to them. Yes, this is a Transformers game in which you never play in robot form, and this bizarre limitation prevents it from feeling like an authentic Transformers experience. This might have been forgivable if Stealth Force Edition managed to be a fun vehicle combat game, but it isn't; it's a shallow, short, and dull game that has nothing to offer Transformers fans or anyone else. Stealth Force Edition is broken up into 18 missions, across which you play as eight Transformers, including the speedy Camaro Bumblebee and the lumbering tank Megatron. None of the missions takes more than a few minutes to complete, so there's only roughly two hours' worth of content here.
Transformers fans should be a weary bunch by now. For every shining moment in games like last year's Transformers: War for Cybertron, there are traps like its Wii counterpart, Transformers: Cybertron Adventures. Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Stealth Force Edition is the latter. An insultingly bad attempt to throw some car models into the barest framework of a game bearing the recognizable logo, Transformers Stealth Force Edition is a disaster in your living room or in your hand. The premise to Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Stealth Force Edition is… Listen, there's barely a premise here. The only effort at a concept is your complete inability to transform from vehicle to robot for no apparent reason other than the amount of work it would take to make more game. Instead, every Transformer you use can shift between vehicle mode, which is a dreadfully dull arcade-style driving experience, and "Stealth Force" mode, where your character's vehicle form splits open and guns shove through the cracks. The main difference comes down to whether you want to be fast or shoot something.
