    I know this is far fetched, but i think it could work with some tweaks.

    We could use a map that is like an elongated version of bumble bee's driving portion in exodus, have vehicle abilities and weapons activate once you collect them on the track, and have separate track types based on class

    I know in a lot of other ways this would be hard to implement, with a lack of braking affecting how effective this would be, using tanks , some type of xp system but it would be interesting if it could work.

    Who knows, maybe it is one of the yet to be revealed game modes

    I'm pretty sure it's already been done with Dark of the Moon for the 3DS. You're tied strictly to vehicle mode, though I'm not sure if there's any actual racing involved.

    EDIT: Oh, gametype you say? Sorry, I thought you were talking about a separate game! In that case, I don't really think it would work in FoC. The physics just don't seem...right for it.

    If it were one or two levels where your vehicle mode were... what's the word? Oh, useful, then I would say do it.

    I hated the PS3 Transformers games before HMS--they were horrible. I hated these games they made transforming a chore. There's also the fact that it felt more like a racing game with robots forced into it:lol 

    That said, I would love a racing mode game in FOC, so long as it wasn't just your average racing course with Cybertron in the background. Imagine if it had obstacles/traps in which transforming may or may not be the best way around them; imagine a race in which flying vehicles raced land-based ones--naturally, I would expect the difficulty for those who use jets to be upped a tad to make it fair race.

    I'm all for a racing game in Transformers Prime. The more modes the game has, the more fun it'll be!

    I've contemplated this idea as well actually. I can imagine a scientist race in which the goal is to land at various floating checkpoints and planting mines on some random devices, etc the fastest. Or a smash derby style mode with destroyers and titans. Game modes like these opens up a lot of possibilities with what is possible in the fact that you're controlling a transformer, and would give vehicle modes more purpose. It would help in distancing this game more from being just another shoot em up.

    Yyyyyeeeeaaaaa- no.
    I don't like racing games, they barely have any plot unless it's shoved in. Plus we already sorta got one with Cybertron Adventures.

    Anything that's not just a variation of "shoot the dudes." A racing gametype sounds awesome. In fact I'm kind of upset and surprised it doesn't exist. I love shooting dudes as much as the next dude, but we need some flavour.

    Wait, is he implying there's a plot behind conquest?

    Also the driving controls are way better than WFC. A racing game would be well worth it.

    It's so obvious they're going to try and shove a story in. Plus racing games are boring when you just race over and over unless there's variety in gameplay or something to keep you interested like robot mode intervals or a story, or some reason behind the constant racing. And it would probably take quite a while to think of a better reason than "WE HAVE TO GET THERE FAST", rinse and repeat.

    Uh, I think he just means like a gametype, dude, not a mission or story segment. There's no story behind conquest.

    Again, do you need an explanation?

    Also instant easy solution: Obstacle course. Parts where you have to climb or jump or shoot hazards etc. Still a race but not just driving.

    WFC had some neat racing courses in the bonus missions. They were a good distraction from the kill everything and move formula. Plus racing to collect checkpoints with the highest checkpoint total at the end of the race is the winner was a very fun multiplayer game and my friends and I had some very fun races. Yep, WFC had a lot of fun game modes. On the DS.

    As a game mode? That would be awesome and I would buy it and love it and hug it and name it Ellie.

    putting a story in a multiplayer game (like racing) is like putting a story into a porno, its badly done, breaks up the pacing, and every one fast forwards it anyway :p

    haha the plot is that if you don't capture all the points optimus and megatron will solemnly tell you that you lost the match.
