    Dude, online was seriously fun. We need to get this thing going with 8 players. Stupid Ass IGN giving the game bad reviews is what's probably keeping people from trying this when the online game is a blast, especially if you played single player long enough to really get the controls down. I DONT recommend playing online without learning the game first or you might get frustrated.

    Gamespot gave it a pretty good score. More people visit gamespot than IGN last time I checked.

    Yeah, MP is serious fun; makes me not want to play single player over it.

    Currently slugging through the PSP version of the game. I'm not impressed. I'll do a full review once I'm done.

    Picked this up yesterday, seems fun. Is G1 Ironhide unlockable at all, or was it just an exclusive bonus?

    Yes you DID! Yes you diiiiiid!

    *pats head and hands over cookie*


    Buckmana: Calm. The f**k. Down. Both consoles are getting DLC. No need to get all console-wary.

    Locus: G1-colored Ironhide is unlockable in the game. And looks damn good.

    I got the game yesterday and think it's a big improvement on the first one, I've enjoyed playing as Ratchet and Long Haul the most though I also like the 2 snipers ( Sideways & Breakaway ).

    I've not had a go at multiplayer yet but shall be doing so once I've got the hang of the controls a bit more.

    If I have any real issue with the game it's to do with the fact that none of the new Autobots that are seen in the movie are controllable though hopefully this will be rectified in the DLC.

    Sideswipe in particular has the potential for some awesome melee attacks and he'd be my no 1 choice for a new character followed by the twins.

    I did a kick ass combo on Thundercracker (I think) where he transformerd into robot mode, as I sped towards him as Bumblebee, transformered and did the melee combo, froze him with my special power, punched him twice, transformed into vehicle mode, then transformed back and punched his lights out.

    And I didn't like starting with Breakaway last night, but after I realized that he's a sniper, not a fighter, I had him perched on buildings taking people out and jetting away in vehicle mode. Definitely fun playing multi

    Bah, when I use those codes it tells me that if I use them, the game won't save, I won't be able to earn trophies, and it'll lock multiplayer :(

    Well after seeing the movie last night, I'll be picking either Prime or Bee. And should Sideswipe be DLC, that boy is mine.

    Well I finished the Autobot campaign last night. Devastator was a pain in the ASS! He gave me more trouble then The Fallen did.

    Yeah, he was probably the hardest part of the game. Finishing him off by shooting him in the head was a bitch.

    As a casual gamer - not hardcore like many of you - I love this game. It isn't too hard but has the ability to be challenging. Much, much, much better than the first, which was only good while drinking ;) 

    I hope to play some tonight online MP once I get back from seeing the movie.

    Question - who are the drones? I have been trying to identify them, but so far only the seekers and longhaul's drones do I get. Who are the ones earlier in the game; are they combaticons? I can see them being swindle, vortex, etc. But the bigger guy with missiles on his shoulder, the autobot drones, etc., I haven't a clue.

    Of course you realize the downside to that is that in the likely event Sideswipe IS DLC, whenever ANYBODY playing as him in multiplayer takes down anyone, you'll be hearing "DAMN I'm good" so. Many. Times. :lol
