    A little let down by the lack of mixture of bots, for goodness sake there are over 40 to use, but I still like what I see.

    From what I've seen from the gameplay on Youtube the campaign actually looks solid.
    Looking a lot better than the last movie tie-in. Seriously, there's so much of the game that they didn't show off! Those character vignettes didn't do it justice at all!
    The menu looks really cool and I love the music that plays over it, (I wish someone would post it in it's entirety) and the opening cinematics/title sequence was awesome! I'm liking the dialogue too. The writer/writers clearly know their stuff! And they got all the voice actors back which is a huge relief! I hope the rest of the game is as polished.

    The banter between the characters is outstanding. Similar to war for cybertron since they are close to your side for the missions. I'm thinking there might be co - op in the campaign since it's setup just like war for cybertron. The only negative is there are no new weapons that I've seen. But the cybertron parts look beautiful. I'm thinking this is a prequel to FOC

    Yeah, I feel the same! it reminded me so much of WFC!
    They've really nailed the relationships between Starscream, Soundwave and Shockwave. I was worried for a while but EOR have definitely done their research.
    Starscream: "Ahh yes, ever the scientist".
    Shockwave: "As you once were".
    Soundwave: "CONVERSATION IRRELEVANT".

    I love that Swindle has 2 missions. He's one of my favorite characters. He also seems to talk during his whole mission

    To quote lordsice: A little let down by the lack of mixture of bots, for goodness sake there are over 40 to use.

    ^^^This x1000!!! I mean, COME ON!!! Did Drift, BumbleBee, Swindle & even Prime need more than one chapter (in Primes case, i'm cool with him having 2... but that's it). Awesome characters like Jazz, Starscream, Wheeljack, Onslaught & IronHide have none... WTF!!! Would it have killed them to make more missions like chapter 2 with Shockwave & Soundwave both playable. That mission looks fantastic! Chapter 3 should have had IronHide playable as well as Sideswipe, one of Swindle's chapters could have had Onslaught & Blast Off playable... and no Megatron... SERIOUSLY! And what's with everybody having the grapple ability??? From the look of things, this game had a lot of potential but it all was wasted in favor of laziness. Now i'm hearing only 15 waves in Escalation... smh.

    In the 2nd mission you switch between Soundwave and shockwave. Are you sure there aren't any other missions that do the same? The missions are setup just like war for cybertron. There might be a chance there is Co-op gameplay

    Do we actually know if those other characters won't be playable in the campaign? Wasn't it only the first four or five missions that were uploaded online?
    If Shockwave is playable in Chapter 2 then I'd presume some of the other characters will have their own sections as well.
    Personally I think it's better to focus on a smaller group of characters rather than trying to make as many playable as possible and only have them for a short time.
    Seriously, there's at LEAST twelve different playable characters in the campaign. That ain't bad! :L

    Yeah I can't believe people are complaining about the lack of characters. We're getting 14 missions. That's one more than Fall of Cybertron!!!!

    In the trailer released a few days ago, there's a shot of Drift using the grapple, but he uses a sword special in campaign, perhaps in escalation each character has two abilities to select?

    I think in escalation each character has its own ability. He obviously can't use blade dash in it. Maybe you can select your own ability. That would be awesome

    Yeah, you chose your character's weapons and abilities in Escalation. I'm 90% sure anyway.

    Do the characters from different universes ever actually meet? Cause if not then why sell it as a crossover?

    In escalation you have never been able to choose the ability for the character sadly cause if you could im pretty sure everyone would just have cloaking :D
