Almost finished the game.
Pretty fun. Lots of funny little parts to cut the tension. The most fun part so far is playing as Grimlock.
The tank mode feels slowler than simply walking, or running though, which is kinda lame I feel. Oh, playing as Bruticus was sick too, although a little too short. I actually feel like they put a lot more into the game in regards to mechanics and visual assets, such that the actual length of the game feels a bit short.
Keep in mind I don't much care for single player games in general, and am just waiting to finish it so I can start with the multiplayer.

Well i decided to say to hell with it and pick it up and im kinda disappointed, played the single player for a few hours & the story seems good and the characters are spot on but the graphics are horrible and ive encounter numerous bugs & glitches. The gameplay switch up throughout the chapters is a cool idea but the levels are linear and i can tell theres no replay value save for trophy hunting. Checked out Escalation & its just another hoard mode that keeps you occupied for about 30 minutes and online is generic multiplayer. The character customization is a nice addition but the color choices are horrible and you should be able to make a different bot for each faction. So far i feel like i wasted $60 but i wont pass final judgment until i beat the game. plus gamestop screwed me out of the PS3 theme i was suppose to get cause im a power up rewards member. But the G1 pack is pretty cool, the Megatron gun should actually sound like Megatrons gun though.

Lota truth here, except that the graphics are pretty sick on pc. Nothing super insane, but theres barely any aliasing. Def a very lush world.
And definitely fun multiplayer though.
Ya wtf is with the megatron gun sounding like an average laser gun and not the oldschool fusion canon. It should be more of a "TSHEEABBHH" sound. Still cool though.

I was really looking forward to this game but I have to admit that it's a bit of a let down when compared to WFC. While everyone keeps saying the graphics are so much better... I don't see it. The character animation seems stiff and awkward when compared to the WFC and so far the story is far less compelling. Even the idle animation falls short of what I saw in WFC. I just picked up FOC yesterday and I've only completed the first two campaigns (I work so I don't have time to play all day)... but in comparison to FOC by the second campaign in WFC I was already enthralled with both the plot and the gameplay. This particular game has yet to really grab me like the WFC did.

I'm hoping that as I continue the game that it will improve but so far this is my initial impression of it. I am currently playing single player on XBox 360 so I don't know if perhaps that is the reason why I'm not that impressed with the graphics... but it sounds as if people on PS3 are having similar complaints about the quality of the gameplay. I don't play PC games so I do not have that to reference.

Even though I have found FOC somewhat of a disappointment so far, I'm still proud to own the Shockwave action figure from it. :)

I got the PS3 version and they totally screwed us over, graphics are blurry, explosions show up as green squares instead of explosions(looks more like tron than TF), lighting seems off sometimes but that could just be from the haziness of the graphics, but the cutscenes look great. if your going to release a game cross platform make sure its the same game on every platform dont just put a half assed port on one of them cause your to lazy to learn how to program on that console. If its going to take more time then push the release date, i bet if they stuck with the original release date this wouldnt have happened. All us PS3 owners can do now is hope for a patch but i doubt we'll get one.

Got the game and finished it yesterday. Got it for the PS3, but don't really recall green explosions. Also, I knew that I wanted to get the grimlock figure already... now I want it even MORE :twisted:

Couldn't help but feel reminded of another certain Tactical Espionage Action game in one of the campaigns.
