    I started playing the game today... and it's way too hard!

    The thing troubling me most right now is controlling Bumblebee when he is a car. I keep veering off the road, bumping into everything. Any tips?

    You don't need to be the perfect driver, just keep going. You won't get hurt

    The game is hard, but its also VERY EASY...

    and for me Bumble bee is perfect, Jazz is a bit hard to steer.

    No, I won't get hurt, but I'm in no way catching up with the Swindle drones who're going to Bolivia's car lot.I'm faster when I walk, but that's not at all fast enough.

    A trick I used is map out the path to get to the car lot, then get there after taking care of the first 2 drones. While you're there, check on the map t see what angle they're coming from. Stand right in front of the car lot and when you see them, kill em. Easier than taking care of them while chasing

    That's an idea. Learn how to work with that map, find the car lot first. Uhm, it's marked, right?

    Not if you're free roaming. Go through the mission a few times to see where the lot is if you don't know

    Two hours, eh? I've been playing for much longer than that. This is the third mission in the first chapter or so. Other way around if I'm mixing up missions and chapters.

    It's short, but for me it was hard. Poor planning, had to meet a deadline, etc makes a bad game

    Once you shoot a drone, they transform and will no longer try to get to bobby bolivias. They also take rediculously roundabout ways to get there, so if you know the direct route, beating them there isn't too hard.

    I've beaten the decep campaign on the PC, and that's with flying controls mapped to the keyboard and mouse (not so fun when flying), so overcoming controls IS manageable... just annoying sometimes :p

    use cut thrus. just try to get to bolivia's first while running some of the baddies off the road at the same time. Sometimes if you start shooting them they will transform and you can keep going and get ahead. Use your turbo when you can. But, if you get to bolivia's before they do you can stop, transform and engage them.

    Thanks guys. I'll do this. Someone else suggested I practive driving more first. I've been doing so for hours already while hunting down the energon cubes. Found over 80 already. Also tried all 4 submissions, but haven't managed yet to get through any of them.

    Driving takes time to get used to, but it's doable.

    Why was this moved to a "Non Transformers" subforum when it's a Transformers game?

    It's a video game topic, even though the Video Game forum is labelled as "non-transformers" we still discuss the Transformers game in this forum.

    Probably because its closer to 'games and anime' than Transformers General Discussion and there would be probably be more people in this forum that have the game.

    One thing to note when you are on the last chapter and Optimus tells you to stop Barricade, he actually means get to the green circle on the map befoe the timer runs out. It took me three times before I figured that out.

    There are some really huge design flaws on this game.
    Return to the "Action Zone" -whose idea was that?

    I got to the BB vs Megs fight on Autobot and the Blackout vs Ironhide fight on decepticon campaigns before I had to return the game.

    I found the game to be either extremely easy on parts or extremely difficult on others. There was no in-between to balance the game out.

    And Timed missions are not cool.
