    Sounds fun. Too bad I can't be part of it because I'm poor and I have a Wii.

    "Alternate modes are restricted to class, and are car, truck, jet and tank."

    I might be misreading this, so I'd like some clarification ^_^

    Is it saying...
    -that each class can ONLY be one of those four forms (all Scouts are Cars, all Leaders are trucks, etc...)
    -that each class can be any/a specific set of those four.

    I keep thinking it's the first, but I'm hoping I'm wrong because I wouldn't be too happy with that :D

    Being restricted to one vehicle type per class sounds really disappointing. I can understand it from a balance standpoint (you wouldn't want nothing but jet dudes on the field) but it makes me feel like the customization is going to be pretty restricted :x

    I am almost 100% sold on this. I just need to see a little MP gameplay and I''ll go right to the store and pre-order it

    But you can still pick a different character within that class. Say, if the class is truck (leader?), and Optimus, Soundwave and Ratchet are all trucks, then you will be able to pick either one of those to use as your character.

    It's still a bit limited, but there will still be some variation, luckily.

    It does make sense that a scout would be a small, fast car, and a scientist/healer type would be a jet so he can fly all over the map to find comrades to heal...

    Balls. Doesn't hinder my enthusiasm for this game, and I could have figured that Create-a-Character would be limited in some ways like this, but it doesn't mean this news still doesn't crush my hopes :p

    I have that particular issue and in it they claim that multiplayer modes are only for custom characters. I hope Game Informer was just misinformed.

    But we've already seen that these 'custom characters' are nothing more than exisiting bots with different colors and weapons :) . We've seen Brawls, Ironhides, Bumblebees, Jazzes, Air Raids, I even saw a white and blue Prime wearing Megatron's gun somewhere.

    It might be possible some characters aren't selectable to use, but I wouldn't worry about only being able to pick 'drone' types.

    It's a bit disappointing that the alt modes are restricted by class, but it does make sense, in a way. If a Leader could be a jet, then that might pose a bunch of balance issues if Leaders have powerful abilities and can fly around the map raining unbalanced death.

    Although the restriction of jet modes to scientists is an amusing reference to G1 Starscream's and Jetfire's roles as scientists.

    I hate CoD's perks system. But this nonetheless sounds fun. I am totally fine with the classes only having one Alt-mode type. A scout being a tank or jet would be silly.


    The game types however sound great.

    Oh well, I was planning on being a Scout anyways... The cars they have in the game look very sleek and Cybertronian, so I'll be zooming across Iacon as one of those! :p 

    But I am disappointed they didn't have two vehicle types per class... Bikes would be great for Scouts, for example.

    not being able to change individual body parts is incredibly disappointing. doesn't make me not want the game, but it definitely lowers my excitement.

    Still psyched for game but I wish they would give you head swap option and the ability to do seriously customized paint jobs and decals. As the creativity of radicons prove, a little customization goes a long way. Too bad...
