    Awesome. I think it would have been better if it came down to good ol fisticuffs over swords, and some brutal grapples over shields, but it was MOST excellent.

    I found Megatron vs. Optimus to be a little lackluster, but the rest of that level was WHOAAWESOME.

    I'd agree with that. I was almost floored by the awesomeness of the last level, but in replays, the actual duel is my least favorite part of the entire sequence.

    The final battle was adequate, perhaps even good, but it could've been better.

    I found the dialog was great the battle itself was ok, I just found it rather short. I would have liked it to have been drawn out a little more. It was only get in a few jabs trigger a qt button press and after the third time it was the end of the battle. It just seemed to be over before it started

    Not as cool as I thought it would be:( 

    How do you top battling Omega Supreme or Trypticon? I'll tell you one thing, it certainly isn't with Optimus Prime or Megatron!

    While it was fun to have these two finally battle it out, I highly dislike games that give enemies attacks you yourself cannot use when the roles are reversed:mad 

    The final battle is reduced to a hack and slash battle, which isn't even what this game is. The final battle is rather boring staged battle--be it easy or hard, the same pattern can be used to defeat the boss:(

    It was cool, but not challenging at all. And I guess getting impaled doesn't mean shit.

    The whole level was awesome and the final battle between Megatron and Optimus was pretty cool. I would have liked it to be a little longer but I can see where that might seem tedious or too long with the frantic pace of the whole level with the ship getting blasted and the portal closing and all.

    I would've liked to see much more characters for you to play as. Introduce Ironhide, have Ratchet go around the ship and repair injured soldiers. Have Cliffjumper sneak through enemy lines and sabotage the Nemesis's engines, have Perceptor actually do something, have Starscream come in groveling back to Megatron, and Megatron sending him along with Thundercracker and Skywarp to bomb the Ark's engines and finally make it inside for the next part of their mission. Then let Barricade and Breakdown team up and actually include them in the game. Let the Combaticons do something individually, and then combine into Bruticus. Finally, have Jazz get injured by Bruticus, and suprise... Grimlock/the Dinobots show up to lend a hand. THEN have Prime and Megatron duke it out for at least 10 minutes with their trademark axe, and mace weapons before going to the final cutscene. As everyone up top said, it was good... But it could've have been a lot better.

    It was ok to me but it could of been better but it does not make the game look bad in any way.

    It was epic in the way a series would play out..... not so great as a playable video game. Just didn't have the challenge or learning curve a d00d would want.

    I thought it was ok, although it was definitely less about skill and more about dying over and over until you figure out what attacks work best, the radius of the super attacks, and how early you have to avoid them. The battle got pretty brutal at some points, Optimus stabbed Megatron right through the chest and Megatron kept on punching him.

    There was one part where Optimus said something about his friends being the source of his power and I thought we had fallen into a shonen for a second. Anyone else catch that?

    I loved it; one of the best parts in the game for me.

    I love their dialogue; Megatron roars how Optimus was nothing before him, and now will die by his hand, Optimus snarks Megs should have gone to the library, Megatron screams why Optimus won't die after he pulls his own sword out of himself, while Prime replies Megs doesn't have what it takes. Awesome.

    I like the actual fight; avoiding the enemie's brutal super attacks and smacking them is quite satisfying, shielding their strikes and hitting back is damn cool.

    I love the beatdown sections. Optimus stabs him right through the chest and Megs just keeps on beating him, Prime sticks Megs to the floor and slams his head into the floor, Megatron beats up Prime and recieves a head-butt for his troubles. It's brutal, and perfect for the final battle of these two.

    I love the setting. As the ship explodes and crumbles around them, they just can't stop fighting. Even as the portal sucks them in, they keep trying to knock each other off, and even as oblivion awaits, Megatron screams that nothing, not Optimus and not even death, will deny him.

    Yeah, Optimus says that. Considering he's fighting for Bumblebee and the Arc and is a lethal opponent, I wouldn't doubt him :lol

    The thing that pisses me off, is when I'm playing as Jazz and I mark Bruticus for the final time before it goes to a cutscene of Jetfire bombing him... I suddenly just die out of nowhere during the cutscene, and have to start over.
