    I'm not expecting Mass Effect level storytelling or Uncharted. I'm expecting a solid Transformers story that also uses the levels and events to show the plot, not tell it.

    It even appears that part of this will be that the story is partially about the Ark, hence why Vortex's level involves destroying a bridge to stop an energon transport; this way the Ark won't have enough fuel to leave.

    I'm looking forward to the banter between the transformers themselves

    I agree. The recordings in the demo so far did a good job of explaining the back story, so i believe that will help.

    I just hope reviewers understand how much they should expect of a game story based off a children's cartoon.

    I hope it's good, but I'm not expecting the greatest story ever told.

    I think high moon is going to surprise us with a great emotional story. Some A-hole critics will give it low scores because when they think of transformers they think of michael bay and you know the critics hate michael bay

    Oh, you're gonna fit in WELL here... I sincerely hope you're some guy's troll account, bro.



    I hope the story's good, I don't expect much more than backstory that drags the player from one fight to the next, but WFC managed to do a passable job, I'd expect the same from FOC.

    What truth? You say the story will be stupid; that is purely a matter of opinion, especially given that this particular story is dealing with the Cybertronian population having to cope with their entire planet dying due to the ruinous actions of their civil war; the Autobots seek to escape and survive, and the Decepticons pursue vengeance and tyranny. That concept alone can make for a very well-done story. The fact that this game is applying such a factor to giant alien shape-shifting robots fighting each other is amazing in itself.


    Illogic, my friend. Illogic.

    Comparing two separate games that have absolutely nothing irrelevant to each other is utter stupidity, plus whoever said Transformers was realistic? Yeah, sorry bud, but i doubt you'll do well here.

    You join the boards and start off by acting like this? And calling a Transformers plot unrealistic, that's a good one :lol
