    I just finished the DOTM Game [pretty fun game in fact, I don't get why so many negative reviews from my fellow gamers, I actually liked it better than WFC], I noticed something funny: Optimus unleashes more funny one-liners against the Driller than goddamn Ironhide does throughout The whole movie.

    I mean:

    "Close. NOT QUITE."

    "Missy Miss!" [I swear to God he said that].

    "You'll have to do better than that!"

    "Getting away already? I'm just getting warmed up." [against Shockwave].

    "Not a fan of rockets?" [this one had me laughing to death].

    "How do you like that?"

    And MANY more. Dude, he regained his sense of humour single-handedly in one game and lost it on the following movie again?

    I agree, Optimus was amazing in the game. As well, I agree with your general sentiments on the game, I greatly enjoyed it as well.

    "Not a fan of rockets?" nearly murdered me as well. :lol 

    Peter Cullen is best when he's having fun, this cannot be denied.

    There are lots of good one liners from the other characters as well.

    My personal fav was Starscream's,

    "For the glory of Starsre...err...ahh...Megatron!"

    Warpath,

    "You look pretty silly with your face bashed in."

    I'm glad to hear I wasn't the only to like this game.

    Indeed, this is proven here:

    ‪Peter Cullen and Frank Welker interview - part 2‬‏ - YouTube

    "You kidding, I KILL YOU?" these two should make a podcast.

    This game had some great lines for the character you are playing, my favorites were "That Autobot had 0% chance of survival." [Soundwave] and most of Ratchet/Ironhide dialogue:

    Ironhide - "Ratchet, You must shoot more!"
    Ratchet - "And you could AIM more."

    Ratchet - "Don't let these 'Cons interfere with our escape!"
    Ironhide - "What if I were just to shoot them?"
    Ratchet [deadpan] - "That could work."

    Ironhide - "This is going to be rather messy."
    Ratchet - "With your aim? I would expect nothing less."

    Ironhide - "There's something wrong Ratchet, these 'Cons don't want to come out and play."
    Ratchet - "Try playing nicer."
    Ironhide - "Unlikely."

    There was also this gem:

    WheeljaQ - "With this, you can fire at will Ironhide!"
    Ironhide - "You do realize I'd do that anyway, don't you?"

    I love Optimus with a sense of humour. That's the thing, he never gets a chance to pal around in the actual movies, so I've really missed it.

    I wish Prime Prime would joke around. :(

    Its because here his dialogue was written by High Moon Studios' writers. They can make Optimus funny. He was pretty funny in WFC. I still can't get over Optimus's "Its a matter of perspective" joke to Bumblebee in the Kaon Prison Break level.

    I was replaying the WFC campaign the other day, and that gem knocked me on my ass. :lol 

    High Moon may not be able to support a game after release...but they sure can make one hell of a base game.

    I like Optimus having a sense of humor too. It's one of the aspects I dislike about Prime Prime; that he's almost always in SUPER SERIOUS EPIC SPEECH MODE

    These are the kind of lines that were missing in the movies so damn bad!

    They make characters loveable and they do it fast without taking much of a screen time.

    More lines like "Class dismissed" and less "YOU DIE NOW!"

    I would've seen the movie a hundred times if Optimus said "What's the matter, Shockwave? Not a fan of MY FIST"

    Starscream had a lot of silent scenes!

    Imagine him while destroying and ripping apart the Ospreys going like "Your human viechles are nothing compared to the might of STARSCREAM!"

    or while he blows up the Autobots ship "Boom go the Autobots!"

    He's on screen! Use that time!

    I was hoping Adler would do his own version of Blum's "IN THE NAME OF STARSCR- uhhh MEGATRON!" :(

    Well, Starscream DID say "HADOUKEN" when taking down the Ospreys, though.

    It's easy to miss, but if you pay attention, you can hear Starscream pulling out his blades on his hands, and just before he charges against the humans, he shouts "HADOUKEN!"

    I spent a whole minute laughing after that.

    Well, I know what I'll be doing when I buy the Blu-Ray.

    That is, watching that scene over and over again, ad nauseum.

    We'll never know, that phrase actually isn't subtitled anywhere, so it's probably some random Cybertronain gibberish. It can sound either as Locustus either as HADOUKEN.
