Videogames based on movies always sucked and have always continued to follow that trend.

If they can put something up equivalent to the first TF game it'll be ok.

Movie games are mostly poor, due to there being little in a movie that would actually make for good gameplay.

The only movie game thats even looking worthwhile is TMNT.
As for Spider-man 2.
I wrote:It was good, but it lacked a bunch of things. Namely replay value. Once you go through the entire game, what was there? Collecting of coins and tokens which give you what in the end? Diddly. Then you swing around and beat up thugs, then swing around and beat up people breaking into a rooftop door. Then you swing around and do a spidey race, then, oh look, more thugs. The only thing that was unlockable were upgrades for spider-man, wow I can make Spider-man swing a little faster, yay?
It got boring quick. There were no unlockables. The cool thing was the staggering size and detail of the environment, how well it flowed together.
It marked a huge leap from the first Spider-man Movie game, which really was a Spider-man 64 port updated. But it still wasn't a really great movie game. Thankfully Ultimate Spider-man, while on a smaller scale and basically the same game, gave some unlockables and extras for completing the game among other things.

GTA wasn't all that special to begin with(no one's gonna change my mind on this, I friggin' hate those games), so I don't see why the TF game needs to copy the formula. They could do so much better than that.

A year might sound like a long time... but when you consider design changes, plot changes (hey, there might be some since that year old script... hopefully), and the difficulty of the engine involved with playable characters that transform, it really isn't enough time to put together a solid videogame, let alone 6 or 7 video games (Xbox, PS2, Gameboy, etc., etc.)!
I'm not trying to excuse them--just stating the plain fact. Video games based on movies will suck 9 times out of 10 unless a lot of information is known about the property ahead of time.

Still though, they better get their act together. In a game where you can throw just about anything, physics is VERY important.
