    No kidding. One such problem is bullets not landing where the player places the reticle. It sucks to high heaven when your red reticle doesn't land a single hit.

    I was playing Campaign coop on 360 yesterday and I had it lock up twice (new slim model, so I doubt it's the system). Watched movies and played Limbo after and everything works fine. There's issues. Nothing that has annoyed me to death, except losing my progress, but I'd still like to see them addressed.

    Prowl would not complain. Only thing I'd still like is Coop Multiplayer. But with the expectations kids have these days, them not including multiplayer would be like asking for the game to fail.

    Ok, well coop is a good idea to keep.... But if they can't hold up servers well then whats the point of having them.

    How many here had issues with co-op story play? The only issue I had was getting trapped between objects and falling through the floor—not a lot but a few times. Aside from that, everything felt and played pretty well. I'm in Japan and I did a bit co-op play with a buddy from the States and a guy from Australia with ZERO lag whatsoever:D

    I have a minor bug with co-op and escalation. But nothing as bad as the other multiplayer modes.

    I remember when everyone asked asked when a new game came out if there was online multiplayer. Sometimes it even comes first.

    Without the online multiplayer I wouldn't have go this game, the demo on the 360 sold it to me. Even with the great story I'd still say the multiplayer is more important to me.

    Maybe they don't have a fix yet. Do you really think they're going to announce something they may not be able to deliver on? Give it some time, it's not like you can't get into a match ever. I've already played about 14 hours online and I'm always having problems. I'm not saying it doesn't suck, but to me it's worth it. Gotta have patience.

    after 30 days of bugs is a good excuse to be irritated and impatient, after 60 days is a good excuse to let go and move on

    Found this -

    SDCC 2010: The Transformers Panel ? One Of Swords

    "Tieg tackled a few valid questions: Why wasn’t Peter Cullen used for Ironhide’s voice? Because the characters were reimagined, and while they didn’t want to mess with Optimus, they took creative liberties with other characters. Will Zeta Prime and Dead End appear as DLC, as one website suggested they might? “Hasbro, Activision, and High Moon Studios are completely behind this game,” said Tieg, “and if the game continues to go on the track it’s going, we will continue to support it.”

    And when asked about a common criticism — that the game doesn’t have enough ammo since enemies don’t drop it — Tieg said that issue didn’t come up during focus testing (and honestly, I didn’t find it a problem either) — but “It is not outside the realm of something we could patch” by putting more ammo in crates, maybe 300 units instead of 100 units. He described that as “not a big change” that could be implemented. He didn’t say if it would happen, of course, but it sounds like they’re aware and listening."


    I really hope that part that I put in bold isn't just BS.

    This too-

    I hope people actually ask good questions.

    ...are you saying those of us that have are making it up?

    I'll never understand why others feel the need to say they haven't had any issues with online play while the vast majority says they have? The online play HAS issues. It, apparently, hasn't affected everyone, but most people. It doesn't happen every game, but it happens several times a time.

    *Spider senses tingling* Someone's going to post "I haven't had any problems with online play, and I've had the game two weeks before it launched.

    Disc to install, actually. Disc and CD key. I just never had any problems myself in this matter.

    As well, even on campaign I'm not seeing an ammo problem either. But, if High Moon is listening to those complaints, then who am I to argue?

    It does get pretty annoying when most of the discussion here is only about the issues with the games Multiplayer. But I suppose that's just me being hypocritical as I'd probably complain if I encountered online issues as well

    Or its the people who have the problems are the ones doing most of the posting. I don't think he was dismissing people who have had issues, but like him I haven't had very many issues at all. I'm not going to make threads or jump in and randomly post about how great my online games have been.

    Theres no proven way to tell the percentage of people who are having crummy games to those that aren't. Like most things on the internet the negative is heard over the positive.

    I would consider "Multiplayer issues" to ecompass all online features. I can't you how demoralizing it is to play a public game of escalation and the host quits/disconnects/freezes and everyone else loses their progress.

    When I hear "Host migration for multiplayer" I hope they remember escalation as well.

    Oh well, I will wait until the next double XP weekend finish up my MP ranks and then get rid of this game. I will not pay for DLC that I can only use online with their broke ass servers. Great single player game I loved it but the ammo was never an issue with me, maybe that should fix what does not work first.
