As licensed tie-in products do, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" scores an unintentional direct hit as a game that, for seemingly avoidable reasons, feels every bit as disposable as the movie on which it is based.
It didn't have to be this way, because "Fallen" does an awful lot right on the mechanical side.
The various Transformers — and you can embody quite a few of them by playing out the story from both the Autobots' and Decepticons' sides _ control as they should in robot form. Outside of some temporarily clumsy helicopter controls, they also move fantastically well in their vehicular incarnations.
