    I was watching an episode of Bionic Six on YouTube.

    I decided to check out the rest of the videos and found some clips from a Transformers PS2 game.

    The only Transformers game I saw prior to this was one that did not use classic designs and rejected it for that reason.

    This one apparently does.

    HOW DID I MISS THIS GAME!!!! :banghead:  :mad  :cry 

    I've seen it and really want to play it.

    Does anyone know more than I do (which will probably be a lot!).

    Here's the username of the person who posted the videos:

    I think that one was only out in Japan and from what some have said it stinks any way.

    IIRC, it's called Transformers Tatakai


    Like Buzzbeak said, it's generally not a very well liked game.

    Can't we sticky a topic with the title 'Tataki sucks-don't bother asking about it'?

    Yah, this topic comes up once a month and we have to break it to everyone that its like one of the worst games ever.

    On the flip side, the Armada game you rejected because it doesn't have the 'classic' designs is handily the best Transformers game released and one of the better 3rd Person Shooters I've played. Great graphics, huge environments, lots of replay value, and varied enemies. Its pretty darn good and well worth the $20 or whatever its going for now.

    Basically, It uses the G1 designs, its good fun for a little while, but so hard to come across its not even worth bothering with.

    Yeah it sucks that it was never done over in the US and EU so we might've gotten good VA's in it, but there we go.

    Also, wanna see more of the game

    look up 'sesq0' on Youtube, he did the entire Decepticon storyline, and started the Autobots and hasnt been on since.

    I think gameplay should be the presiding factor in any transformers game, and while character designs are very important for toys and even the comics/movies/cartoons, a TF game cannot survive without a balance of action, controls, and objectives.

    Tatakai is shit. the Armada game is awesome, and enjoyable even to people who don't like TFs (the license doesnt make the game, that's very rare)

    Play the Armada game.

    I'm stuck in the 80s

    For the most part, I prefer the designs from the eighties to the early 90s.

    I stopped collecting sometime after the Turbomasters and all the "special" ones were no longer available.

    After that, the only ones I bought are the Micromaster Constructicons and the Megatron that came in the DVD double-pack (I always thought (the original, gun version) Megatron had the most useless transform ever, he couldn't do anything by himself after transforming).

    I'm still looking for that mini-Arcee action figure (have no idea where to get her).

    So, for me, the visual style is more important then the gameplay.

    In any cases, most games based on intellectual properties are awful anyway (try playing any game based on a movie!!!!).

    So, I might as well get what I want anyway.

    If youre talking about the BW 3rd person shooter:
    I hated that game, I could never get past the level where your trying to rescue Blackarachnia, it was so difficult.

    Also, I couldnt do most of the missions as the Maximals.

    With the N64 BW transmetals game:
    it just sucked, period, controls were glitchy and really difficult to learn, and Waspinator didnt have enough voice sample things, Waspinator kicks ass, especially in the 'secret' Starscream mode.
    (Transmetal Waspy in meat waspys colour scheme, with Screamers voice)

    Also, I dont get the hate on Tatakai, its not perfect, but its still pretty fun, even if some of the boss battles are Hard as hell.

    Ultra Magnus, Kup and Skylynx at the same time, WTF?

    Well, the armada game has a lot better graphics and design too. EVERYTHING about it is superior to tatakai. Hell, its one of the best action games on the PS2.

    Yeh but its not G1. Which is why I didn't enjoy it.

    Loved the Takakai one, because its the ONLY game with a decent G1 story and you can play almost all of your favorite G1 characters. Sure the game play kinda sucks but its the best G1 game out there. So what can you do. If you are stuck on G1 like me then its a cool game to play.

    By they way to play it you will need to get your PS2 modded. Its a Japanese game but since it was released in Australia there is a English mode. The voice overs are tollerable.

    If you like beating up Ironhide 300 times in a row, moving forward 10 feet, and doing it all over again, and again, and again, then you may like this game.

    All it took for me was watching one video of the gameplay to know the G1 game is crap.

    SO not worth modding for and importing.

    but it DOESNT have a decent story! The transformers even comment on the invisible walls the gameplay forces them to deal with. last I checked it didnt even explain why you'll fight a mob 4-5 ramjets every 2 minutes either.

    in the armada game, you fight unicron 1-on-1. you cannot beat that. and the tidalwave fight. oh man. does an entire stage transform and fight you in tatakai? no.
