Just got back from the party. Many (like, 20) plasma screens set up, but only about half running the game (on XBOX 360). Saw several levels, several characters. SS Blackout Barricade Bumblebee Scorponok Pros - great bot mode models great alt mode models great transformations (well, could be a lil better) almost entirely destructible levels can pick up objects or other transformers and throw them melee attacks: you can block, so there seems to be some very basic fighting system (run up, attack-block-attack-block-run, reposition -attack-throw) but seems way simplistic. Like, it would've been cool to have a system more like Soul Calibur, something more involving This is more just run up and mash. Blackout can just grab the rotor head of his back and use it as weapon. SS does silly monkey flips. BB and Barricade have a punching/grappling thing. Scorponok does a stupid little spin, or strikes with his tail. Other than that, they all have some ranged attacks. Animation is OK. Its extremely extrememly repetitive animations. And they move like they are too light. Targetting sucks! For ranged attacks and enemy detection, there's a very rery silly looking reticule. Missile trails look faint and weak and unimpressive. When fighting, you're mostly looking at your robot's butt and back, and can have trouble discerning what simple move your enemy is making. They should have made the camera switch to a 2P fighter's camera angle for TF vs TF duel. Flight mode for SS and Blackout was sluggish. Like, flying at 60 mph Gameplay doesn't feel very epic. Very "run here, do that, run there, do that". Energon cubes help replenish your health. Totally breaks the ultra-realisitc look of the robots and environments. There seems to be a "hub" level from you can choose missions Running around was kind sluggish too and un ... immersive. But the TF's were nice. I guess I was expecting better air movements like Ace Combat 5. Expecting driving more like a real car game. Melee more like a fighting game. It kind of feels like an arcadey compromise on all of thse. But the TF's were nice. Othwerise... they wouldn't serve us alcohol. They had a photo set up, I got mine. I'll cut out my face and post it, and y'all can pretend y'all were there! There was no sound on the game, cos of the loud music. They had some Wiiis too. They gave away mad free gum. They had a raffle, and a Guitar Master contest. My friends and I had the most fun game - ping pong in the indoor court!!!!! Blackout is beautiful. SS look OK. Barricade is good. Yay, Ping-Pong!
