    OMG total Nerdgasm! I've been debating on preordering this at gamestop or amazon. Gamestop offers a gold megatron/optimus skin, fanwank for lucky draw i guess or the g1 colors ironhide... either way i'm heading out tommorow to preorder one way or another!

    Sounds promising.
    Been thinking about getting a 360 for a few games.
    I just might now!

    ^Protectobot.

    Tony, is that the definite list of playable characters? Or are there unlockable characters too? That seems like too small a list.

    Until I know you can play as Sideswipe, some more constructicons and the Twins, I shall not buy. Apart from that it looks frickin' awesome.

    The multiplayer should be a blast, and I like the more tactical focus instead of the first's standard shoot/beat/run setup. There are two things that bug me though:
    1) The graphics- right now these seem like a step back from the original. The models are blurry, blocky, and lacking detail. The first game had many flaws but I thought that it nailed the designs of the bots. Devastator here seems kind of cartoonish and misproportioned, and Prime looks undetailed.
    2) The characters- With the exception of Sideways and Long Haul (I'm counting Grindor as Blackout) there are no new ROTF characters in this game, at least right now (Breakaway isn't in the film either). There are so many great new characters, like Arcee, Jetfire, Sideswipe, Skids, Mudflap, Soundwave, and the Fallen, and none are noted as playable so far. I hop we get lots of DLC, because the robot lineup is underwhelming.

    PS- The Protectobot design would be a good fit for movie Prowl.

    So that is the FULL character list, INCLUDING unlockable characters, or not? Be clear for once!

    I have an idea on how to have the Arcees in the game. Start off as one of the three, with a life bar about 1/3 as big as an average character, and when you get killed, you go to the next Arcee bike (Chromia or the unnamed one). That way you can play as all three and still have a normal play time. Also, maybe if you get a powerup or go a certain amount of time as the first bike without dying you can combine with the other two bikes. There's also team-attack opportunities here.

    What do you guys think? Sound like fun? I really hope there's more characters in the game, and I'm looking forward to lots of DLC.

    When the achievements were leaked for this game, one of them stated that there were 15 default playable characters (in story mode, so not counting the multiplayer-exclusives). The list here only has 10 regular characters. There's a few they're not telling us. ;) 

    My guesses for the last 5 default characters would be:

    -Skids
    -Mudflap
    -Sideswipe
    -Mixmaster
    -Soundwave

    And then, hopefully the unlockable characters.

    it IS 3d environments right?
    could you transform at any time?
    any other tidbits from your time playing it?
