    I just want to see the other opinions.

    B.T.W. I know I spelled "coming" wrong and no I don't hate the movies.

    I dont know if I'm buying it yet. I'll have to play a demo first. and if no demo is released, then it had better get a bunch of stellar reviews for me to feel somewhat comfortable giving Activision money.

    Because it looks like it may be the first truly great Transformers game.

    Obviously, given the date started and the context of the options, I know this is a WFC poll, but you might want to remember to actually name the game you're talking about next time around.

    As for my two cents, I'm not. Yet. I think anyone who blindly shells out cash for a brand new game without playing it is insane, especially up here in Canada. This sucker is gonna cost about 60 bucks new here. I ain't taking a chance for 60 bucks. I'll rent it first, see if it really is decent, then I'll maybe pick it up.

    Activision is only publishing it, High Moon Studios is developing it. The first movie game was developed by Traveller's Tales while ROTF was developed by Luxoflux.

    Usually the company publishing the game has little to nothing to do with its gameplay or story. They are mainly responsible for marketing and manufacturing, ie putting the game onto discs, into cases, shipping them out to stores and advertising for them. What goes into the actual making of the games is not their responsibility.


    If you've had previous problems with any games published or developed by Activision, no need to worry about WFC because it's not made by them nor is it made by the same minds behind the first 2 TF movie games.



    I'm buying this cuz I love Transformers but don't like how the first 2 movie games play nor do I care for the stories to them.

    Same reason as someone else said, it looks like a great game to buy with the previous TF's games bein soooooooo very bad. Plus, I've heard that this game plays alot like Gears of war anyway so if its true then this game will certainly rock for any TF's fan.

    I know activision isnt developing it. I know what a publisher does.

    But I also know what kind of company activision is, and I dont want to give them money unless absolutely necessary. so far in my 23 years of gaming, I've managed to avoid doing that. it's going to take something special to change that.

    It's looking like that will probably have to change though. have yet to see anything that makes me not want it. but I dont buy games blindly. either gonna take a demo, or stellar reviews from trusted sources.

    The game looks pretty rad.

    BTW The 2007 DS game, Transformers Animated DS game, and ROTF for 360/PS3 are all pretty good. The ROTF game may not have the best story, but it has pretty solid gameplay.

    I like Transformers. I like Videogames...That's my answer.

    Obviously I will probably wait and see what reviews will be, but it's sounding like it'll be, at the very least, a decnt action game.

    The thread is also in the WFC thread. That's a clue.

    How about option "F" - Waiting 25+ years for someone to tell the full story of how the war started on Cybertron in nice CGI graphics.

    Well I put gameplay and Graphics, but my real reason is that there isn't anybody playing ROTF on Xbox anymore. I love the MP ( though the arena's are pretty small) and the only people playing are jazz and G1 SS spambots. Not that me and Stealth BB don't hang and bang them out, but i'd like some more options.
