    I've been seeing on various sites, that there is are talks going on with Activision, Tomy-Takara, and Hasbro about making an only multiplayer G1 Transformers game for PS3 and PC only (they haven't been mentioning XBOX 360 for some reason). Do you guys think this is possible? Personally, I think its really iffy, I can't see them pulling that off.....too many copyright issues....

    No, WFC/FOC already exist.

    No need for another TF game.

    I hope not. G1 games always end up being crap.

    This could be the one that breaks that trend.

    The only other Transformers game that we know of is the MMO that is being planned.

    I'd like to see a link to where this is discussed to see if it is genuine. IIRC it might be the Korean MMO and someone getting their info mixed up with FoC.

    I'd love to see it. Although being based on Earth (presumably) they would have to have extreme attention to detail to make the environment look good in relation to the scale of the robots.
    Earlier earth-based TF games have felt like you're driving a toy car around legoland, rather than a real car in a real city.
    civilians roaming the streets would be a must, even though we probably wouldn't be able to run them down in a hasbro game :tongue:

    I like it, but it's hardly a masterwork. It's a simplistic time-waster. Once you've gone through the limited number of missions included, you know how to beat them, and if you are playing Cybertronian Arena and pull Grimlock or Shockwave on your team, you win.

    I'd love to see an update or sequel, where the developers flesh it out into an actual proper, fully-formed game with actual strategy involved. But until then, it has about the depth of Solitaire using TF pictures.

    But I agree with you that the idea any G1 game will inevitably turn out crap is ridiculous. If Atari could make a great Armada game, someone can make a great G1 game.

    It has a higher Metacritic score than any TF game out there. Just saying that if somebody automatically dismisses all G1 games as crap, then you have to dismiss every TF game as crap.

    i doubt it. i mean i wouldn't be surprised, but i doubt it only cause it would be financially foolish to leave out microsoft as a useable platform unless it were an exclusive like LBP.

    and i agree with NCStarscream. a TF edition of sylanders would be awesome

    That is absolutely meaningless thanks to the people who vote on such things. For the price, yeah, it's a good value, and it's a fun time-waster. But it's a short game that you can 100% in about 45 minutes and without any depth or strategy whatsoever.
