Review of Transformers Movie Video Game from ToyFair 2007

This is the forum to discuss all of those video games you love playing or that are coming out. From Transformers video games to Fighting games to Sports games ... whatever makes you a happy Seibertronian. Just keep it the topics and conversations game and console related.

this all sounds fine and dandy now but it really means nothing this far from the actual release date. the fact is they're only a handful of really good games every year and the rest are usually utter crap. plus being a movie based game, the odds are it'll suck ass. i always wanted to see a tf game made kinda like the metroid games on cube. those are awesome and i think it could work for tf's. have it first person in bot mode and swith to third person for vehicle like samus and her morphball. anyway since its based on the craptastic bayformers i'll pass. i'm not paying 50-60 bucks just for g1 skins.

As much as I liked the Armada game, I agree with kimmer. A Metroid Prime style game would be perfect for TFs. I actually thought the same thing after playing the Prime.

I'm a bit worried about how the game may turn out, actually. While everything sounds kinda cool so far, it's already being compared to GTA, and I don't like that. I friggin' despise the GTA series. Hopefully it isn't a carbon copy of that. Otherwise, I'm happy to hear Wii and DS versions will be available.

Is the post saying that they're two versions for DS (Decepticon and Autobot) if so, that'll be cool, adds more content, and if Activision makes it as good as their Marvel games, I'm sold.

Why don't the good games come out for the PC? I really really want this one! (particularly throwing humans and the Burger King sign). Now, who wants to throw the creepy Burger King mascot?

Well, it's good that it's coming out on Ps2, but that doesn't do me much good seeing as how mine is dead. It would be more convenient if it was being released on either X-Box or Gamecube. But I really didn't see a DS version here.......an Autobot & Decepticon version....kinda like Poke'mon! And I am so happy that both Autobots & Decepticons are playable. I just hope there are a lot of G1 references & unlockable skins (G1 Prime, G1 Megatron, etc etc....) I guess the game won't suck......

*edit* Wait, I just thought of something, if there are unlockable G1 skins, that means there will still be the same movie alt. mode, won't there? so even if it looks like G1 Megatron, it'll be a G1 Jet Megatron......luckily Prime has something close to his G1 form...........

Sounds like a plan. Can't wait for it to hit UK shelves. I'm hoping around November time at the most? My Wii and I will enjoy this very much.

Incredible Hulk got a pretty good score too, so this one could go a loooong way.

Causing chaos in human cities and playable Deceps were the only thing missing from the Armada game. And every free roaming around a huge environment type game gets compared to GTA nowadays. That's just because GTA was the first to successfully pull it off in such a huge way. And PS2? I am definatly getting this.

As it said bosses won't be playable characters, I rekon we won't get to play as Megs. So his G1 skin issue of a flying pistol is mute (even though he was a flying pistol in at least one ep.) But playing as Decepticons in cities and basically doing what Deceps should be: Demonstrating their power to the "fleshlings". I'm hooked.

They said there would be G1 references, but they didin't confirm them as playable characters. Still, the game looked really fun.

Hulk: Ultimate Destruction was an awsome game. Every one knows how good the GTA games are. I for one, like the look of the movie, and I'm pretty optimistic about this game. Will it have a lot of replay value...probably not. But it sounds like it will have a killer 4 player mode.

It will be coming out for PC, the News Crew just forgot to add 'PC' to the list of supported platforms.

I'm guessing Prime will be the final boss for the Decepticon side, so does that mean he won't be playable?

That would be a stupid idea. Why make a Transformers game if Prime isn't playable.

And Activision has already said Prime WILL be playable.

He might be the final boss, too. The Decepticon game is a "what if" scenario, in this case it's "what if the Decepticons won?"

I think that one thing would make this game greater: MULTIPLAYER MODE. That would rock. I also think that what the Armada game was missing (other than CONS) was cities. This game has it.

I want this game. NOW. Beta tests aren't usually this good.

That sounds cool, what bout Megatron though? He has the be the Autobot final boss but the IGN link : http://ps3.ign.com/articles/763/763523p1.html states that Megs will be playable with flying levels with Starscream, so what bosses are they talking about?

Even thought it NEVER happen how fucking sweet would it be to have Unicron playable in this game?!?!?

Hahaha, God mode. It would be so easy. Slam dunk a planet and eat it. 15 seconds later you beat the game.

Cool, they're actually doing Grand Theft Autobot!

Image

I made that two years ago, thought it appropriate to bring it up. It's a bit rough I know.

Anyway, I usually avoid movie games, but this is a big exception, and it sounds like a great game. Here's hoping it has a good camera and control.
