    I´ve bought Transformers War for Cybertron for Nintendo Wii today.
    I haven´t opened it until now, and I think i´ll take it back to the store to get my money back.
    I found a review for the game which says that the WFC game on Wii is crap.
    Has anyone of you played it yet and can tell if I should save the money?

    I´m thinking about buying a Xbox 360 next month. Maybe that´s better :-S

    I paid 39€.
    The Xbox version costs 69(!!!)€...
    I don´t like the PS3 and I´d prefer a Xbox but i´ll wait for the Xbox 360 Slim.

    Thank you for posting the video.

    Good decision, fortunately for you that you had the money to spend whereas most people don't.

    Tieger went into the technical reason why they couldn't just port it to the Wii, it's because the Wii simply does not run UnReal, the engine that powers the High Moon version of the game. Obviously they couldn't remake the entire thing with a different engine just to suit Wii owners, but I think they could have put certain conditions on whomever they contracted the work out to. The Hasbro exec whose name escapes me, the one who oversees the entire Transformers brand said it was a Hasbro decision to kiddify the game.

    I like the use of dialogue and the way the story plays out in that gameplay clip, but I can see how this might be kind of a boring game. I was disappointed with ROTF for the Wii, and this looks like it's not much different aside from better storytelling.

    Too bad they couldn't just port WFC to a Wii engine that's close enough to UnReal.

    It's not a bad game. Nowhere near as good as the PS3/360 games, but it's still fun to play.

    People like shooters, but only shooters like TPS or FPS, but for some reason, Rail Shooters and Shmups aren't that popular...

    I rented it, and I'm starting to wish I rented a different game. Compared to the PS3 one, it's pretty lame. I remember now why I'm not a big fan of rail shooters.
