    agreed. It kicks ass. I love the Hold trigger to transform. Gives ultra fast conversion and the advance takedown.

    Yup, I remeber in the last one I tapped up and transformed. You couldn't tf during an attack or jump or anything, you had to be completlely neutral.

    I think reviewers need to play the first one to realize how much of a step up this game is.

    I was definitely curious about the button holding Transformation before I played the game but having now played it I think it's perfect, you can pull off lots of fluid moves and combos with it, I hope whatever the next TF game is it has the same control scheme.

    My favorite thing to do is on the bridge, drive forward, leap over that pile of flaming cars transform in mid-air, land and drive, then leap over the next pile and transform in mid-air and land driving. It never gets old, just feels so fluid.

    He's talking about pressing a button as opposed to holding the trigger.

    I didn't like the idea of holding down button to maintain the alt mode, but after playing it for a few hours it's like second nature now. I think those reviewers didn't spend enough time with the game.

    Trigger transformation makes it easier, as well as making the advanced takedowns and moves possible, and the game would honestly be a lot worse off without those.

    i was sketchy about the trigger TF but it works really good. its one mechanic they should not get rid of. they just need more takedowns and combos <3

    Did you guys know you can invite a friend to during Free Roam? I paused and looked at my friends list and the invite button is an option.

    Agreed. This is what I want to do here's the scenario

    Starscream flying in jet mode, Prime driving down the street, let go of the trigger and leap transform and catch and hang on Starscream pulling him down to the ground.

    No offense to you or anyone else here, but I think you all accept it because you are already biased Transformers fans. Let someone who is not a Transformers fan play this, and I think they will disagree with just about everyone here. Again, not trying to rag on anyone, but it's just a fact of life. The severely mixed reviews proves my point even further.

    To be fair, you could always actually try it yourself as opposed to just following what the critic says :D 
    It does sound really wierd on paper, but it actually works surprisingly well.

    Especially for multiplayer. Seriously, give it a shot.

    Yeah instead of letting the critics think for you, rent it and try it yourself.

    Just cause we like it doesn't mean we're biased. We just know what works and what doesn't, and the trigger transformation works better and is much more fluid then the one-button toggle.

    Yeah, I don't see how you can call us biased when the only reason we like it is because it actually works.
