Just picked this up today, my friend has 3Dvision and was curious if he could play this game in 3D.

I would like to know this as well. Its using Unreal Engine 3.0, which powers both 3D Ready games like Batman, but also powers games that are also pretty piss poor in 3D, like Mass Effect 2. I wouldn't expect much, as its main development target is the consoles and nothing was mentioned of any The Way Its Meant to be Played support from NVIDIA and being 3D Vision Ready.

Seems like the 360 version is actually getting some decent reviews.

I guess movie tie ins can be good if they don't have to tie in with the release of the movie. Just look at Goldeneye. I might have to check this one out.

Not a movie tie in... this has nothing to do with the movies at all, which might be the reason it apparently doesn't suck... I was convinced it would suck just because it was a Transformers game, but I keep hearing good things... might have to rent it sometime or something.
