    no. I'm not disappointed at all. I feel sorry for Japan they didn't get the great Armada game.

    Not in the least... We got the Armada game, they got the G1 game, and we came up so much better on that deal it's insane. But if you like repetitive gaming and poor use of what should be great material for a video game, yeah, it's a bummer it wasn't released here.

    What is it with this game? This is like the third thread on Tatakai this week.

    I didn't even know anyone outside Japan had played it. Apparently the graphics and character selection are terrific, but if the gameplay is poor and so forth that really doesn't matter if it looks good.
    Still, people said the same thing about the Robotech Battlecry game and I love it, so I'd still like to get a chance to play it.
    Whats wierd is that it has english voices and the characters have the US names not the Japanese ones (prime instead of convoy for example). You would think something so well known as the G1 era, amongst the general public as well as fans, that they'd make a decent G1 game for our market. Still the reason for SONY knocking back release outside of Japan is that they think there isn't a market for G1. WTF?

    A lot of people outside of Japan have played it. There are these nifty things called "swap discs" and "mod chips"...
    Honestly, the graphics aren't even that great. They're decent, but not great. The best thing about it is the number of characters.
    Go ahead, but it's not half as good as Battlecry. And I still think Battlecry is just above mediocre.
    They knew people in the Western market would import it, I'm sure.
    More likely we didn't get it because Atari had the US license to make TransFormers games at the time, and because the game wouldn't be worth working out the licensing hassles. I doubt Sony even cares one way or the other.

    Apparently there are a froth of good games not distributed evenly. That Transformers game is fortunately not one of them (shame that the game was butchered however).

    How about a sub-forum for TF-related games in general? It would still be tiny, but at least there could be more than one topic of discussion. We could all get together and reminisce about how awful the Famicom game is.

    Is it just me, or is that version of Jazz a bit... flamboyant?


    Also, best line ever...

    Yeh, not into the mod-chip stuff. Its a shame though that G1 didn't get a stellar game like Armada. I own it even though I'm a G1 fan, but if its the only decent one available - I'll live with it.
