    No IronHide in campaign (except for acouple cutscenes) nor escalation... Dammit HMS! ur killing me.

    This is the first Transformers game i've played in the past 7 to 8 years that didn't include Hide as a playable bot. Why was he overlooked? I know his parts are available in multiplayer but... Dammit it's not the same!

    These particular characters should always be playable in any formers game especially in campaign modes:

    Optimus Prime
    BumbleBee
    Jazz
    IronHide
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Soundwave
    Shockwave

    With Shockwave being the most rare.

    I know we all can't get what we want when it comes to playable characters in game... but IronHide come on!

    If Prime is anything to go by, it's because of Ironhide's death in DOTM. Ironhide was changed to Bulkhead because Hasbro thought kids would be confused with a living Ironhide after seeing DOTM Ironhide die.

    Possibly why Ironhide is demoted to being an extra. That, or they are focusing on Optimus and Grimlock. I haven't played the full campaign, so I can't really say much with certainty. The DOTM Ironhide death, however, has been used as an excuse for no Ironhide before, it's possible it may be used here.

    New game, newish cast. At least some characters got a cameo, half of the cons didn't even get an honorable mention.

    It seems pretty clear that characters that appeared in WFC, excluding a small few, took a backseat this time around to give other characters a chance.

    BTW, isn't your title a spoiler?

    I really hope not, because that's some of the biggest BS I've heard, regardless of who from Hasbro is saying it.

    It doesn't work as an excuse for Prime and it doesn't work for this. Several other characters died in the movie series and yet they're being used in other continuities.

    I haven't started playing the game yet, but that's disappointing for me. At least I still get to play as Grimlock.

    The only cast members that should always be playable are:

    Optimus prime
    Bumblebee
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Soundwave

    Even if its just 5 minutes in a level

    Personally I was REALLY hoping for a playable Shockwave level... considering how much they bigged up that he was finally in the game.
    Ah well, let's hope we get some Campaign DLC with levels for Ironhide, Shockwave, Perceptor and Wheeljack... maybe Onslaught too.

    If they can't even put in an offline/split-screen multiplayer, I doubt they'll put in the effort to make new campaign levels.

    I don't see why any character needs to be playable

    I guess Optimus, Megatron, and Starscream, but the others aren't necessary, no matter how much we may want them to be playable
