    lockdown in the DS? Oh come 360, I hope so!

    Also, that head on Laserbeak looks really good! Not as goofy as the toy, this has a more menacing look to it.

    Though I love the goofy head on the toy.

    I love how Mirage looks. I can't wait to see these guts in action. Especially in stealth mode.

    Is boost gone completely?

    It wasn't clear if Stealth Mode keeps the boost and adds the weapons or if it's not.

    Boosting was one of the more fun parts of the game, so it'd be a little disappointing if it's gone.

    Thanks, sir! :) 

    Feels sad knowing that there is no PC version. War For Cybertron was awesome.

    i spy with my little eye... crankcase! in 2 shots! the one with warpath, prime, megatron, and the railroad tracks, and the one with bumblebee, shockwave, and warpath in tank mode. crankcase is standing on top of the rail car in the second one.

    i also see baby face breakaway!

    there are some awesome screen caps here. shockwave, mirage, and laserbeak are looking BUTCH.

    How was it playing the Decepticons (in either single or multiplayer) in the game?

    (If you did play one of course.)

    "There are 4 classes, similar to the WFC model. They use in-game models, which you can then rename and re-color."

    Boost is basically "regular car mode". You are driving at Boost speed in that mode, with no weapons. When you let go of the top button, you naturally fall back into Stealth Mode, which moves slower like regular "driving around" in WFC. Plus you have your weapons available then.

    I played as SS in MP, and Megatron "Truck Mode" in MP. Plus, a Decepticon Scout.

    Only played with BB in SP.

    Megatron was slow, but his fusion cannon when it lands, is powerful. Starscream I did my best with, the flying controls feel VERY similar to WFC, so I didn't have a learning curve.

    There is also a SECOND Megatron model in MP, the Tank mode from ROTF. I didn't play that one.

    So it's like an improved version of WfC then? Cause that's what I was hoping to hear, which means I'll be pre-ordering.

    Ok, thanks!

    Glad to hear the speed factor isn't missing entirely.

    Well....I think that seriously sucks.

    I think the "stealth mode" should have been a secondary mode to alt mode. So it sounds like seeing transformers in thier primary alt mode will only be seen for seconds, while everything will be tanking around in stealth mode. I dont like that.

    I dont mind the stealth mode, I like it, but I want the focus LESS on stealth mode, and more on robot, and Alt mode..

    Im a huge gamer, and they way everything is described to me, is in multiplayer we are just going to see a ton of stealth mode vehicles fighting. I just dont hear any reason so far NOT to be in stealth mode. Car mode, is just for boost...If your in robot mode, your too weak and you'll get cut down...

    Sounds like they turned this into twisted metal, where you sometimes turn into a robot and die..

    Im not gunna say, I aint gunna play it, because I AM, but I sure as hell wont buy it, I'll gamefly it, and buy it when its $8 on gamefly like I do with everything else now..

    ROTF was the best Transformers game.
