    Game 1: a direct port of the 360/PS3 version, but the game itself wasn't very good to begin with.

    ROTF: The game that caused me to go out and buy a 360 when I had previously only had a Wii. This was just an abomination (you could not transform, in a transformers game) , but the 360/ps3 version was good if you're more of a TF fan than a hardcore gamer.

    WFC (Cybertron Adventures): A rail shooter. Again, you cannot transform at will, thus kinda screwing up the concept of a Transformers Game.

    And now with DOTM, you don't even get the opportunity to play in robot mode! Unbelievable!

    I'm so glad I have a 360 and have preordered from Gamestop. Sorry, Wii folks.

    Yikes. I hated the ROTF wii game too. Wii just isn't for me. I want good graphics, thats why I got a 360, and I really don't like swinging around the controller. It's really more of a familiy game system.

    For the Wii? Do you have a source for that?

    Nope. The Wii only gets the Stealth Force edition.
    Unless, of course, you see something here that says otherwise.

    I'm disappointed with the 3DS version being just Stealth Force. Don't have a Wii (but got a PS3 for WFC).

    There's been a woeful lack of content for the 3DS so far, and now there's a Transformers game I have no interest in.

    Blame the Wii's less powerful hardware. Its easier (albeit still complicated) to port from PS3 to 360 and vice versa. The Wii was the cheapest of this generation of consoles for a reason.

    Still, they did it for movie game 1, and you would imagine a port with heavily diminished graphics and animations would still be both cheaper/easier to produce and more fun to play than making a whole different game that's "customized" for Wii gameplay.

    do you just like everything then no matter what? :confused: 

    that explains why they have to do the game over rather than a straight port, and why it's not as good.

    What I still don't understand is why they think we need a Transformers game with no bot modes. Maybe I shouldn't prejudge it here, but it sounds like the last thing I'd want.

    For me, that's as egregious as it gets, even more so than not being able to transform at will which is an automatic dealbreaker for me. Thank god I have a 360. I could have tried to lie to myself and play through the Wii game, but seeing what I was missing with the 360 version, I just couldn't do it.

    Ah well, I pretty much expected something like this from the get go. I'll give the game a shot, though, as it could still be pretty good (for example, I thought Cybertron Adventures was a decent game, just a bit overpriced for what you got).

    Let's just hope that we eventually get WFC 2 for the Wii U.

    Apparently we should think of it as a transformers-themed vehicular-combat game rather than an FPS-type game.

    Still wish I could get a decent Transformers game for my 3DS though, one with actual transforming robots(!). Oh well.
