    That's all of the sideswipe action? Can you at least play as him when you're running around the city in the free mode place/Level/Thing?

    Once you're done playing the game, please tell me who all is playable, and who appears in the game. I plan on getting this if Sideswipe and at least one twin along with Ironhide, Ratchet, Prime, and BB.

    I'm going to assume this is Transformers : Autobots right? If you get the decepticons games, please do tell us about it!

    I am having a blast. I picked up the PC version today and just completed the Story and Side missions for the Autobots in Shanghai. I'm currently trying to polish up my skills with the advance transformation play.

    All in all....it's not a groundbreaking game, but I am having one helluva fun time with it. :D

    In the PC version you can after you clear the area. That what I'm doing to practice. I'm sure it's the same on the 360 and PS3. The other versions I'm not sure.

    You can, but there is no point to it. You can't attain goals, energon or battle any enemies. You literally can just walk around an empty level.

    Sorry, no can due. Activision has requested we do not create our own screenshots (hence why every review uses the same shots).

    Repetitiveness I can possibly understand, but not the lack of story. I don't play games for the story, and there is a small "amount" of story there. But to each his own. I still give it 8/10.

    Okay, comparing God of War to a movie game is not fair at all. God of War had plenty of development time, and is a COMPLETELY different game in regards to concept and combat. Secondly- you're seriously saying that Wolverine and Web of Shadows are fluid and... an extension of the character? Wolverine is nothing but a mindless combat game in which two buttons can be used to beat the whole game, and lacks any ingenuity in combat. Web of Shadows, again, is another mindless combat game that only gets points for having different moves for the black and red suits. The web-slinging, which is a focal part of being spider man, is clunky and only serves to take you in the direction of another fight.
    If you're going to make a good comparison between RoTF the Game and another Movie Game, please do so with Spider Man 2 the Game, which was the only Move Game that did everything right, otherwise, your arguments are pointless.

    May just get the strategy guide for all the chool character model pics.

    This game looks fun in short bursts, and the list of achievements seem decent enough to go for. May probably buy it just to have some hi-res controllable Transformers to play around with on some rainy days.
    The first game was'nt the best game, but I never got tired of tforming all over the place.

    I just want one good TF game in my game library, and this seems the best pick.
    Armada for PS2 is still awesome, but it's still just Armada characters.

    Passing on the Console version since it's just normal activision tie-in fluff. but eagerly picked up the DS version.

    I'm confused, the game is not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but seems Lacking in comparison to the first DS game. gone is the full voice acting, the switchable vehicle modes, the control scheme is changed....for the worse I think. DS Game 1 was not broke.....why did they try to fix it?

    Hi, my name is Freefall, and I just wasted 30 bucks on the ps2 version.

    I don't play video games often, thought this would be the same as the xbox and ps3 versions but it is so not.

    It might be fun... if you could TRANSFORM.

    Seriously. Only time you TF is for special moves.

    Time for a 360

    I didn't find the controls hard to get used to on the PS3 at all. 5 minutes playing and it came intuitively. It might just depend on the types of games you do play on a regular basis as to how well you adapt to the control scheme. It IS different, but I like it and it's got a good flow to it to me.

    Like it's been said, there's a lot that's better than the 1st game and a few things worse than the 1st.

    Audio in the debriefing room is all over the place as far as loudness... This is a small thing that's annoying and makes for hard to hear conversations. At least on my stereo HDTV. Could be different with surround, dunno, don't have it.

    Character models are well done, voice acting is decent, and it's great fun blowing up things. Car controls work very well, as do the flight controls. No screen tearing yet, graphics are equal on PS3 and 360, which shows Luxoflux put a lot of care into making their game a showcase game in the time they had. Multiplayer's a blast to play so far - I've just tried out team DM.

    For those of you guys wondering if it's worth it, try it - I think there's something here all the fans will enjoy if they like shoot-em up, 3rd person shooters. This brings back the old school gaming fun of trying to get your points as high as you can make them go in the levels. Something that's been sorely missed in the last few years.

    If you're on the fence, rent it, or do what I did - I traded in old games that I'll never play again at Gamestop and got it for free. :)  Can't say I'm sad to see that sorry excuse for a Ghostbusters game go. I'm definately having more fun with TF:ROTF!

    I've run into a few problems so far. First...for some reason, between missions...for some reason optimus primes voice is incredibly low volumed. The rest are loud as hell. Very annoying. Also, the transformation button and firing button are the same...and sometimes i get random transformations. When i lose the lock on a enemy...i'll transform...that annoys the crap outta me...

    but...i did find out a nice surprise that i didn't know before...apparently there are g1 episodes on at least the 360 version...i unlocked sos dinobot and i'm watching it now haha
