I'm kinda disappointed with the ride itself. Seems it just consists of random encounters and subsequent escapes. I know there's only so much you can do with a first person view from a moving vehicle story-wise, but I was expecting Evac to make a robot mode appearance at some point.
The dialogue, while a little difficult to make out here and there, seems to be right out of the movie script. The whole thing feels like a bunch of deleted movie moments (face it, each segment is too short to be a 'scene') in a reel. Devastator's five second appearance was especially jarring.
Judging from the people's reactions during the ride, especially the woman, this seems to be one of those rides that incorporates huge unnessecary tremors for every little bump going on in the filmmaterial. Those jolts and wiggles never worked for me to enhance the idea I'm actually inside the film. Rather, they distracted because they're so over-the-top.
On the bright side:
The aforementioned dialogue fits the Movieverse like a glove and it's always cool to see more of otherwise barely-visible designs like Sideways. The action and animation, though obscured by the double-layered 3d image, is pretty awesome to see. The queue, both decoration and queue videos, really evokes the NEST atmosphere and the store makes me drool.
