    I actually would've been on board with this if it wasn't turn based strategy like X-com and actually RTS like Freedom Force. My favorite X-com was always Apocalypse because it had a RTS option. I'm ok with the graphics because that's how Cyberverse looks and I've really enjoyed that show, especially season 3. I'd still be interested if they do the real time thing... and they could do it with the current gameplay style if you pause during your moves but you aren't committed to your moves like in turn based.

    Only 6 Bots and 6 Cons is disappointing.

    It's up for pre-order at GameStop. It'll be 39.99. So at least it's not full price. Imma check it out for free, give it a shot and report back.

    That would be a instinct buy if the graphics were better and wasn't based on Cyberverse.

    No kidding. I mean there's a difference between being careful not to overspend on a project to avoid risk of not making back the money and taking a page out of Mr Krabs when it comes to be cheap to the point of doing more harm then good. You'd think with how Hasbro's trying to bring the Transformers brand to the next level they would do a lot more to make them look as professional and amazing as possible but the way they're going about it is really undermining the potential to actually do so. Sure it's not that bad now because things like Cyberverse and Rescue Bots offer a lot of good things for fans,but if they keep this up,it's really going to look bad in the TF media department. We could even end up seeing a TF series that would make the Sunbow TF show's quality look lightyears better. I know that's a big exaggeration but still I don't want to see Hasbro shoot themselves in the foot by this stupid mindset.

    People actually want to buy this? well, no wonder Hasbro won't put any effort in, they don't need to for people to scoop it up. The eternal cycle of shit games it seems.

    Headline is misleading, this is not a review.  Game sites only got 30 minutes to play the game, so whatever you are reading is barely scrapes the surface of the game. I played about ten minutes each on three levels. 

    It\'s an RTS as Mario vs Rabbids sold millions on Switch, that\'s why they chose to do it, and also because they didn\'t want to do yet another TF action game - in case you hadn\'t noticed, as good as they are, they don\'t sell. It\'s a mid range title aimed primarly at a younger audience, hence using current cartoon designs. Personally I thought it was fine, the cut scenes are well done with the cast of the cartoons reprising their roles, but as I said everyone only got 30 minutes, and that was remote streaming.

    15CAAACB-1150-4669-9894-33D1ECD4AF25.png

    And HOW I MEAN ABOUT UNINSPIRED AND LAZY. IMAGINE YOU ASK SOMEONE TO DRAW OPTIMUS PRIME AND THEY DIDNT HAVE ANY INSPIRATION WHAT SO EVER, then HE WOULD LOOK LIKE HIS SHITTY EVERGREEN DESIGN. I REALLY FUCKING HOPE THESE DESIGNS WONT BE CONSTANTLY REUSED IN FUTURE GAMES AND MEDIA BECAUSE IT WOULD ONLY MAKE THE DESIGNS MORE BLAND AND STALE THAN IT ALREADY IS!


    Now that my mini rant about the designs is finished let’s get back to this shitty kids trailer.


    Next RED FLAG! The fucking SURROUNDING of the game.


    AS IF THIS GAME WAS ALREADLY UNINSPIRED AND BLAND WE ARE IN THE MOST GENERIC LOOKING CITY I HAVE EVER SEEN IN A VIDEO GAME. It DOESNt EVEN LOOK LIKE THERE HAS BEEN A WAR THERE! JUST RANDOM BUILDINGS DESTROYED AND SMALL FIRES HERE AND THERE. AND OF COURSE WE ARE ON FUCKING EARTH TO MAKE THE SHIT EVEN MORE BORING. AlSO AM I THE ONLY ONE TO NOTICE THE SAME DAMN BURGER RESTRAUNT APPEAR THREE FUCKING TIMES STRAIGHT IN THE TRAILER? GOD THATS FUCKING LAZY BUT HEY AMERICA SURRRRE LOVES THERE BURGERS AND FAST FOOD AM I RIGHT!!??? AND I FUCKING HATE THE FORTNITE ASTHETIC IT HAS! THE LAST THING I WANT TRANSFORMERS TO DO IS BECOME WOKE AND HOW DO YOU DO FELLOW KIDS LEVEL OF CRINGE. IT NEEDS TO BE ITS OWN THING AND NOT TRY TO COPY A TOXIC DEAD GAME EVERYBODY IS SICK OF! HE HAVE SO MANY GAMES TRYING TO COPY FORTNITE ALREADY. YOU ARENT HELPING HASBLOW! THE GRAPHICS LOOK AWFUL! THEY REMIND ME OF ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS AND CLASH OF CLANS. Oh yeah REMEMBER THAT SHITTY GAME ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS EXIST? YEAH I WANTED TO FORGET ABOUT IT TOO BUT THIS TRAILER MADE IT SPONTANEOUSLY POP UP IN MY HEAD BECAUSE OF HOW SHITTY IT LOOKS. I WILL not BE SURPRISED IF THIS SHIT HAS MICROSTRANSACTIONS. AND WHY A TATIC GAME?! We have fucking EARTHWARS ON MOBILE AND THAT GAME IS STILL MAKING MONEY! LEAVE YOUR MOBILE SHIT OFF OF OUR CONSOLES!

    I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO POINT OUT THE L TRAILER HAS THE MOST BLANDEST MUSIC I HAVE HEARD ADDED TO A GAME TRAILER IN 2020. ITS JUST SOME BASIC CIMIMATIC ORCHESTRATED STOCK MUSIC USED JUST EWWW! REMEMBER CITIES OF DUST FROM THE FALL OF CYBERTRON TRAILER? THE MUSIC CONVEYED EMOTION AND COMPLIMENTED THE MOOD THE TRAILER HAD. CYBERTRON IS IN FLAMES AND IS IN STRAIGHT UP RUINS FROM THE ONGOING WAR. AND EVEN METROPLEX RISES UP. BUT HEY SOME MAY ARGUE THE BLAND MUSIC IN THE NEW TRIALER COMPLIMENTS HOW BLAND FUCKING BATTLEGROUNDS IS!


    God ugh. Will 2020 get even worse from here? Look how far transformers games have fallen. I hate the current transformers media. It’s all stupid, safe, uninspired, kiddie bullshit now in days it’s jusy depressing. I hated prime. But at least it didn’t treat its viewers like mindless toddlers and babies. Thank god for the the siege anime and the upcoming siege video game

    The game is awful but the show itself is good like yeah some of the designs are bland but others like astrotrain, sky byte, shadow striker, perfect Decepticon, is far from bland and the show isn’t completely kiddie either like yeah some deaths you feel are pointless but others like starscream beating and death was set right not to mention the death of the scientist (kinda disturbing they made Wheeljack laugh while killing him)
    And siege wasn’t that good, Cyberverse didn’t great it’s viewers like toddlers it gave them obscure characters and lore, the next game isn’t based on siege.

    Huh, must have missed seeing this frontpaged. ONly noticed on Transfans today.
    The gameplay is totally XCOM, and I wanted a TF turn based strategy for AGES. I am pretty happy with this. MIght not be a huge epic game like WFC/FoC but it seem enjoyable and has a lot of characters from the look of it.
    One weird thing was how that seeker in the opening was clearly the female variety but had a male voice, huh.
    Curious what sort of special abilities your characters will get. I see Wheeljack has a lot of shielding/repair abilities.
    Hilarious btw that this reviewer keeps saying the game is easy while at the same time in the background you see him make hilariously bad tactical choices (such as not leaving characters in cover, despite how in this game you basically get "sprint" ability with everyone, meaning you can move after attacking. He loses Optimus Prime in 2 rounds due to this, LOL)

    For me, quite the opposite. All I play these days apart from ARPGs is turn based strategy - XCOM Chimera Squad, Age of Wonders Planetfall - and it is my favourite genre. I always hoped to see a TF TBS someday. This is a dream come true.
    In fact I wonder how moddeable the game will be. Would be nice if we could add G1 character models somehow.

    Huh there is a GI Joe game coming? Surprised. Maybe with the rumored Snake Eyes movie (I have not even seen a trailer despite rumors saying it is coming this year) Hasbro finally felt that franchise needs a boost.

    Pretty sure it means per mission, you can control 6 members only. Not that there are only so many characters. For starters we have seen Chromia on screenshots, so we know there are more than that many characters.
    6 is pretty much normal number in such games. The new XCOM games let you only take 6 soldiers per mission (except Chimera Squad where it is only 4). Age of Wonders 3 and Planetfall also limits the number of your troops to 6 per stack, even if you can bring multiple stacks to combat due to adjacent hex rule. Heck even in Heroes of Might and Magic games the number of stacks of troops per battle is usually between 5 and 7.

    This post made me pine for a dislike button. Seriously, I just find all your points utterly pointless and dumb. You have not even seen what the game is like (since all your points are about the designs and the trailer) and yet you managed to write this walls of text? Congrats, you have achieved "Overreaction of the Year" award. If you get this angry about a video game that nobody is forcing you to buy, I can only guess how overworked you must get about real life important problems...
    EDIT: and I see you just joined yesterday for this??? Dude this is not youtube or twitter. I don't think you will last long here with this attitude.

    New trailer uploaded on Bandai\'s YouTube page. Gotta be honest here, this game will not sell well at all. Especially when the next gen consoles are gonna be released a few weeks later after this game comes out.

    Love how they couldn't even get discount peter cullen from the show for this game. Actually, I think I might even like the voice actor from this game more than the one for the show...

    I still feel like I have very little idea of what type of game this will be. Turn based? Is it a tactics game?

    I'm digging it for what it is. I like the Cyberverse designs and I really enjoy X-Com style strategy games. So long as this is in the $30 range it will be a fun little diversion.

    Well that's a surprise, I had no expectations and I'm still disappointed. I was expecting something akin to WFC (the 2010 game) or Devastation in quality. Good enough to stand on its own and be enjoyable, as well as setting a foundation for other games to build upon, I wasn't expecting a masterpiece, but this isn't even worth £10 much less £30.
    Why didn't they contract an independent game studio to work on this game? There's tons of them and I think plenty would be willing or even excited to work on a Transformers game, as well as putting out a much better product than this, especially if the game is being sold for £30. With a budget approximate to the price point they could have done wonders! Most indie games go for roughly £15 more or less these days, and they make their money back and more. Mortal shell goes for £25 and that game looks on par with some AAA games.
    Hopefully that WFC trilogy game is still in the works, and hopefully it at least inspires something aside from painful boredom and silence.
