Check the link, read the comments. It's doing just fine for it's first week.

No it doesn't. I mean, it does if you skip all of the cutscenes. It actually does have a plot,
That was a figure of speech. Allow me to rephrase myself. *ahem* It lacks plot.
No character development, period.

Perhaps if you watch more television than I do then you can learn to tolerate it.
But Starscream's voice sounded good to you?
I liked his voice from Armada better than this, even the stupid voice in the Armada game.
This guy sounds like he was pulled right off of 4kids' Pokemon.
Oh and I did hear Starscream's voice from G1. In fact it seems that you were making the assumption that I hadn't seen G1. Sorry to surprise you, but despite my age, I grew up with it.

No they aren't. The EMP shotgun and Scattergun are both more than capable of taking down anything that moves, as long as you use them right. I've slaughtered many an opponent by getting up close and personal with the EMP shotgun. (Which is how you're supposed to use a shotgun)
Are you talking about Escalation or Deathmatch?
Well either way, I don't think I've ever seen a player who actually wanted to use the shotgun.
As for my own experience with it, well I hit a guy in the back with a cloaked melee attack and then shot him three or four times with the shotgun without killing him so... I don't intend to use it again.
And no he didn't have a shield on. Say that I just suck all you want (I'm more of a casual player, so yeah I do). I'm fine with the Null Ray.
Shadowman wrote:Vicalliose wrote:a lack of support for melee combat
Define lack of support. Do you mean it's bull that it only takes two or three melee attacks to kill anyone? Because I agree with that.
Only two or thr-!? How many shooters have you played? Usually it's "one and done"!
N-not the point. What I meant is that it's very restrictive. As in, it's only used for a lame quick swing, rather than actual useful combat.
Shadowman wrote:Vicalliose wrote:Jazz is voiced by a generic
This is actually a misunderstanding. Everyone in multiplayer has generic voices, because they're supposed to be generic characters. You can hear their real voices in Escalation mode.
And? I was talking about Escalation. So unless all he does is mutter all the time, I haven't heard him.
Bottom line, he does not sound like Jazz.

Oh yeah, good work kicking an animal while it's down, one that has been down for years.
Please. Stop using a show that was made in the eighties, strictly to sell toys, as a defense for the plot of anything released within this millennium. I'm sick of it.
Why can't you people try something like Beast Wars or the comics?
Oh wait you can't, because nothing has ever had a weak enough plot for you to make a good enough case.
Transformers is not the utter trash people seem to think it is. It's been done better.
