    Gee, maybe it could be because of how horrid the ROTF game was...

    Nah. Probably just a coincidence. :p

    Horrid? Fuck no.

    Single Player compromised for a fun multiplayer? Pretty much.

    Overrated on this board? Yes.

    But horrid? Even at its worst it's passable and at its best pretty sweet. And I was first in line to rag on it.

    Eric, you are getting worse.

    I liked the controls and transformations in the game, the hold-down-and-go concept was new and different, but worked great.

    As for luxoflux, kinda sad since I enjoyed the one game of theirs I bought, but oh well, it happens.

    Man that sucks. I actually enjoyed the copy of Kung Fu Panda that came with my Xbox for free.

    ROTF game was okay. I'm still veeeeeery slowly working my way through it. It's basically what I pop in when I'm not in the mood to play anything else I'm currently playing through. It's passable...it got too much attention here for understandable reasons, but yeah horrid is a little strong. Superman 64 was horrid. Back to the Future on the NES was horrid. If I had to describe ROTF I'd call it unremarkably competent. The best compliment I could pay it is that I've enjoyed it more than the movie it was based on.

    Kung Fu Panda was really fun though. Other than the Lego games, it might be my favorite of the games that belong to my kids.

    Even Twist can admit when he ends up partially eating his words. ;) 

    As for if the game was overrated. At the beginning, yes. Now most of us agree that the game is better then most movie tie-ins, but isn't "OMG AWESOME!"

    I still think that this and Armada are the two best TF games released so far.

    If they had done more to make the single player interesting it would have been super awesome. That and put in some kind of thing to stop Daggersrage being so fucking good at it :(

    Dagg is a god. There is no game you can play him at that he doesn't whip your ass in.

    The first time I played online and saw 4 Decepticons coming at me in Vehicle mode (including two jets) and Transform, and the chaos that followed made this game worth buying. I hate to see another game company go under. Their contribution to Transformers wasn't the best, but it was playable and fun with buddies.

    One time I logged onto Live, and was immediately logged off when the system realized Dagger was on... that's how good he is.

    I well enjoyed the ROTF game, it was much better than I was expecting. It may not be great but its certainly enjoyable enough that you don't feel its a waste of your time. I don't want every game to be the next Mass Effect, it was perfectly acceptable for a movie based game.

    What Recall said, and I really liked what the Devs did with the Transforming. It was risky when the obvious choice would have been a single button pressed, but once used to it, the combo system with Transforming gave yet another advantage to using what Transformers do best, Transform... I kinda wish WFC adopted this.

    Have you played War for Cybertron yet?

    After the first movie game this one just seemed that much greater. PS2 Armada and ROTF are the two top TF games in my opinion. Hopefully though that will change completely in a few months.

    No, just wishful thinking.
