    My opinion: Sorry to disappoint everyone, but the game of Transformers Prime isn't my style of video games. I prefer Fall of Cybertron than Transformers Prime: The Game as my favourite Transformers game.

    Games that I'm into include Pokemon, Super Mario, League of Legends, COD (Call of Duty), Halo etc.

    I guess the story for the Transformers Prime: The Game was good but unfortunately the gameplay isn't really my type.

    Overall I prefer the show better than the game.


    Which do you prefer?

    I always dislike games that are based on TV shows/movies. They nearly always suck and aren't worth the money.

    What kind of question is that? Why would I like a series tie-in game more than the series itself?

    Think the show is the better option; it has more length to its running, certainly :)

    No kidding, the only movie/game tie in to date that I liked were Terminator: Future Shock and the sequel, Terminator:Skynet. Those two games were released in the mid 90's so not sure how many people are old enough to have appreciated them. However these games weren't based on the movies themselves so I don't know if they count.

    Just remembered the good times me and friends had playing Goldeneye on the N64. This one counts as a movie tie in that did it right.

    Everything else I played was fit for a sewer. I am still curious about the TF game but I'm not sure if I want to considering how bad movie/game tie ins usually are.

    I wouldn't say TFP is a bad game.

    I'm enjoying the game on Wii U. I find it fun and me my 3 year old will have a blast playing it together.

    About the countinuity...... Why are Dreadwing, Airachnid and Starscream together as Decepticons, were the game makers aware they held grudges against each other?

    Also although Thunderwing is a video game character, it looks nice if we ever got to see him in the show! :D

    So you're making a Transformers Prime game. And you're ignoring continuity. You know what would have been an awesome concept? A dual boss battle against Dreadwing and Skyquake together. Skyquake uses his super gun for suppressive fire while Dreads runs around planting bombs and shooting peas out of his blaster tube.

    No matter how the game played, you would always be like "well that was a pretty cool moment" and you'd remember the game forever.

    The show needs a flashback of the two working together or something. Gotta show off dat bromance.

    They'd need to do the licensing for both Tony Todd and Richard Green to appear on the show. Too much work for just a flashback episode.

    I enjoyed the game, it was pretty fun while I was playing through it. I still boot it up to replay one of the missions, or the multiplayer.

    And never expected it to fit into the show continuity. That's like thinking WfC/FoC fit into the show continuity.

    i found the game pretty enjoyable, and the plot was a possible way to end the series if they chose, as it resolves a few things

    (game plot spoilers)
    dreadwing-crushed by rock slide in an attempt to shoot BB
    soundwave-defeated and flees
    arachnid-defaeated then flees, but appears to be dying
    knockout-drives off edge of the nemesis
    starscream-used as shield by megatron from thunderwing's attack, appears to be killed
    megatron-seemingly destroyed by thunderwing
    thunderwing-falls in volcano, goes BOOM!

    autobots and kids happy

    Well I like the cartoons (g1,prime) and the TF's FOC game and the 1 before that where awesome. I have played a pretty good bit of the TF games and they sucked but those 2 games where great so if they keep making games like that then the TF name in games will be known as great games 1 day.
