For online play, you can create and name your own transformer to play as. I would buy this game just for that fact alone. P.S. All Hail Lord Megatron!
@Damu_Jxne5 we can always hope that, they release dlc with more characters and stuff... or release mod packs so that fans can create there own characters and maps...
This game has a crap load of weapons! List for known guns in the game: Null Ray Neutron Repeater Energon War Axe Engergon Duble Axe Dark Engeron Morninstar Ion Blaster Thermo Rocket Launcher Thermo Spinder Mines EMP Shotgun Scatter gun Energon Club Energon Hammer Energon Blade Photon Burst Rifle Thermo Grenade Launcher Proton Launcher Snertry Turrets: Both maned, and unmaned Guided Missile Fusion Cannon Decepticon Battle Pistol Autobot Battle Pistol And thats just what we know of so far! This game has more guns then you as a gamer could shake a stick at! That dose not count the vehicle weapons, and pickup weapons we may have in the game, There is also several unkown guns like the Dual cannon in some vids, the heavy rapid fire laser thing, and several more I can't list here.
@ Wolverine 97: List of known transformers in the game starts here: AutoBots: Ratchet Jet fire Sideswipe Silver bolt Warpath Iron Hide: Hes a car this time sorry man, still tough and armed with EMP Shotgun, and a Double axe! Air Raid Jaz: pre-order for now RC: MP only Decepticons: Megatron StarScream Skywarp Breakdown: Now voiced by the man who plays Kakashi in Naruto, great choice IMHO! Soundwave Thundercracker Brawl Barricade Shockwave: Pre-order for now Demolisher: Pre-order for now Note: The devs said there are at least 10 other skins you can unlock for each class in the MP game, RC is one such unlockable skin for the scout class, it seems it might have even more then those listed here! Plus you can have 3 custom colored, and different modeled/loadout for class!
is there gonna be a Ironhide with 2 massive cannons, 1 on each arm that can cause havoc? please let there be.
@Darthrocker oh ok well i really hope this game does really good in sales so we could have a part to coming because hot rods my favorite character
@Damu_Jxne5 the story is at the very beginning of the war... if it holds true to the original 80's... those 2 don't come in till very late in the war... also i can't wait to preorder this game... but ebgame.com.au has only console games for preorder at the moment...
4get bubble bee wheres ultra magnus and hot rod how u gonna 4get about them i already kno where this is goin i feel bad for those that reserved dis game lmao
Oooooooh please be good please be good please be good I WANT YOU SO BAD. Corny, but I'm 100% serious.
Dude if you hate the game don't buy it. I for one have pre-ordered it already. On top of that these guys are Gamers them selfs, they have a deep love for Transformers, and on top of that it has had over 200 hours of MP testing, and gameplay testing from their own developers. It also go massive testing from critics as well each time there was a comment about why it worked this way, the devs took that to heart and worked to fix it. Unless your looking for a game based on Transformers to be number 1 in critics I play games built for gamers, not reveiw blow hards who get payed on how many high score reviews they hand over to the big developers, and publishers.
this is going to fail.... ppl seems to overlook the fact why batman AA was successful... it had plenty of testing in alpha and beta phase by fans and game critics, which is the only game I know that is not an mmorpg that has so many testings done (pokemon aside, pokemon is the largest nonmmorpg fanbase testing to date) the dev keeps this game under close wrap,we know so little about it. which is why this will fall short
G1 FOREVER! IT was the best of the best for the Animated movies, it had the best voice Actors for both Megatron, and Optomus Prime, as well as the best looking combat sceens even in modern animation. IE it had the best full 2 hour movie I ever saw as a kid. It was great. BTW: For once the Good guys look just as bad ass as the bad guys! I love the new looks for the Autobots. Even in the G1 series they all had that kinda lame looks to them, for the good guys. Now there are some good guys that look as sweet as their evil counter parts! The design team has done great work!
Now this is how the Transformers movie should've began and this is how the Transformers should've looked. I really hope the franchise gets a reboot with a new director and a new direction that truly pays homage to G1. No robot humping action.
Amazing, can't wait!!! As for Jaspers comment on Megan Fox, I hope that was sarcasm? She is one of the main reasons the Transformer movies sucked so badly, aside from the Director being an air head , among other actor short comings... This game has nothing to do with the movies, so of course it'd have no humans.
As a Gen1 fan, just because of the storyline, I might not be too disappointed if the gameplay didn't meet expectations! I'd play through the game just to check out the story. It would be great if they can take all the cinematic scenes as you unlock them, and then watch them seemlessly as a CGI mini movie.
ahhhh.this trailer remind me when i was a kid and plying with those transformers toys. i love them and now for every birthday party of a kid that im invited i buy one of those, they are awsome, of cours everyone love theyre transformers toys. wow so many memory and now theyre closer to real with this game. hope they put megan fox in the game, she's great,lol.
it does look very good!!! its a shame the old 80s cartoon couldnt be made in the same fashion, maybe a sequel activision???
hxczuner~lol~ owww....this series looks more promising than other transformer game series....this should be an interesting gameplay..and sure i would play $100 for a great game~~
ha ha lazerbeak, im 22 and im the same. I still go out and buy the toys to screw around with. I cant wait for this game
it's because we are true G1 fans and there are many more like us.Just go on you tube and look at all the people who have double copies of the original G1 toys.i am 32 yrs.old and i would play with the toys.that is pumped i am.
@Lazerbeak2125. Dude you pretty much mirror my thoughts...lol. As a fan of transformers that watched the old G1 cartoons as a kid (and I still do) this may very well be the most anticipated game of my gaming life. And it's got MP that mirrors Call of Duty? Sign me up
So far it looks very promising. But if the game-play is just like the previous Transformers games, it's gonna suck balls!!!
This is aswome for any kid that watch the cratoon back in the day. I only hope the game play does not suck. For the story looks good, for any transformer kid. So far they done well with both movies, The way I do a game is by stroy, game play, and graphics. If one those sucks then I can get by the others, but story is the big one.
@amari24 In the original cannon Starscream and Jetfire/skyfire were explorers. Starscream was neutral until Megatron brain washed him. Starscream thundercracker and skywarp were seeker jets on cybertron. Optimus prime was the cargo freighter orion pax and was rebuilt as one of the "new defenders" by alphatrion.
this looks great, but I have to wait for release before purchasing....haven't been happy with other releases in past
This movie just got me really excited for this game. Not that I wasn't before. Just now having seen this I'm going to be pre-ordering this one
Coronithofcork, the previous transformers games were based on movies so they rushed them, this game is not based on a movie so it is going to be amazing and not tied to any movie but rather based on G1 Transformers. ^_^
I have to admit it looks pretty cool. But i'm going to wait for the review first. In my opinion i didn't really enjoy the previous transformer games. So you can probably see why I'm hesitating...
sorry modern warfare 2, but this game will pwn u. Im getting this the first day, and already pre-ordering at Gamestop:)
This is stacking up to be a great game, I just hope it doesn't fall short like Lost Planet 2 and who thinks M.B. should rent this game to get the movies on a GOOD story line??
jeeze! I had only really signed up and started getting interested in this game for it's multiplayer element, THIS STORY however...!!! Is also freaking interesting. I was always a helpless StarScream fan as a kid. I love that he's getting a bit of background in this story
