    This is probably a tad early, but I’ve had a pet peeve about this game for a while now, and I’m wondering if there are more to follow in the coming weeks.

    I haven’t had a chance to play the demo—I’m a proud owner of a PS3—so I don’t have any gameplay issues, but more of a presentational issue, the way characters hold his/her weapon to be more specific. Are all Cybertronian’s right-handed? It’s a little annoying to me to see so many right-handed characters. I understand that many people on our own world are right-handed, but there isn’t one left-handed character among the Cybertronians is there? Shockwave is even right-handed.

    What bothers you most about this game?

    from the multiplayer vids the action looks like mindless quick kill shooting.

    i'd like to see more of a knockdown melee style fite as u close.

    it would really be bad if u can't fite megatron as optimus in any mode.

    wheres the trees. on cybertron, where does oxygen come from? think some one hates nature. no animals, not even any tiny robots.

    hmmmm, weapons just laying around, what if a noob bot shoots an eye out for crying out load. don't they have weapon regulations? its like the autobots or who ever makes cybertron law is instigating the war.

    WHen they announce that the environments are destructible, but I've see every video that has been released and played the demo... I still haven't seen a good example of it.

    the sniper null ray should be more powerful
    health should regenerate
    better melee moves
    crouching
    bigger selection of weapons that are more creative.
    killcam for online play. being exploded randomly is lame. laaaaaaaame. iwant to know how it happened

    1) Why does a melee in the back from a Scout almost instakill a Soldier (instakill if you've even suffered a glancing shot)?

    Imagine Team Fortress 2's Scout. Now make him invisible like the Spy. Now make it so he can attack whilst invisible. Now make his bat a 1-hit kill against anything that isnt the Heavy. Imagine how terrible that would be?
    Every scout I see goes instantly for the cloak melee attack and barely even attempts to shoot.

    2) Why is there no host migration for when the host cant take a loss?

    3) Melee damage in general seems to do far too much. I see a lot of players (mainly scouts) just attempting to melee because either they cant aim or shooting an enemy to death takes too long.

    4) Grenades. Why did these need to be in the game? They dont seem to get a lot of use, and the only one I've seen have any effect is the one that messes up your vision. Even that is pretty easy to ignore and carry on through.

    5) Why isnt it out yet?

    Outside of 1 and 2, these are really just nitpicking.
    1 may just be my bad luck that Im getting double teamed by a scout who wont fight face to face and someone shooting from the other side of the map.
    2 is pretty crucial to fix as far as Im concerned. Nothing sucks the fun out like being seconds from victory and having the host run away.

    Most of all though, Im really happy they didnt go with standard regenerating health. I really hate gameplay that rewards campers for staying hidden and allows them a full heal without risk as they wait for the next poor sap to walk past.

    i think the melee is fine. in most games i play melee is a one hit kill, besides, scouts are the rouges of the game with their back stab ability. i'm unsatisfied how little damage a tank can do in tank mode. one blast from that cannon only takes out 2 health blocks

    That the game isn't out yet.

    No Ultra Magnus. (At least he is on the DS)

    That this game wont be as good as War for Cybertron 2. (I'm so impatient I can't even wait for the sequel)

    As mentioned, host migration is the biggest problem I have.

    Others:

    Twice I've joined Conquest mode but the game started up a Deathmatch. Hopefully thats just a server problem and will be fixed by release.

    Jumping and turning at the same time while boosting in vehicle is tricky, since vehicle control and jump require the same thumb.

    Edit: Come to think of it, do you have to hold forward on the left stick while boosting or will the boost move you regardless? I'll have to give that a try.

    Only 2:

    1.) The host disconnection thing. Though I can't hate on it too much because Team Fortress 2 suffers the same problem and that game is still popular as hell.

    2.) I don't have the actual game. Want now please kthanxbai.

    Honestly, I'm irritated that the best parts of the game seem only available online. I don't like online play, only because I'm more of a casual player. Going online for fun and facing off against a bunch of high-level fanatics tends to suck the enjoyment right out of the experience.

    Also, there doesn't seem to be a multiplayer setup, like a split-screen as in RE5. If so, that is seriously disappointing.
