    So, this is basically a beat-em-up? Sounds a bit like the PS2 Armada game I have... that I played once because it was soooo boring!

    I love how the author stated he was British and then went on to use the word "fender" and not the correct bumper.

    And who is this "we" he refers to when stating the cartoon was too childish? I don't recall what year TF hit UK TV screens, but I know I was 8 years old in 1984 and if that's too old for the G1 cartoon then I don't know who the hell Hasbro was marketing those toys to! Maybe he was already a teenager in which case he'd likely not be into cartoons of any description.

    Also, he can't be that much of a fan if he doesn't know that the "transformer that turns into both a tank and jet fighter" is Blitzwing. I haven't even seen the game, let alone played it enough to review it and even I know it's Blitzwing! I call BS on his fan status! :lol 

    Anyway, can't see me rushing out to buy this; even though it's G1 I really detest beat-em-up games as they're so repetitive. When will the G1 Transformers get a really decent video game, al-la Halo, or (as referenced by the author) Gears of War? It's long overdue. Just my 2p! ;)

    How is a beat em up with a complex set of fight mechanics (ala Bayonetta) more repetitive than a modern first or third person shooter?

    That just sounds more like people equating genres with certain eras.

    Man, lighten up people and just enjoy shit, would ya?!?

    Does every single video game you play have to be a 30 hour epic saga? (with 60% of them cut scenes?)

    Just shut up and play.

    The Cartoon IS the most important thing. Even if the stories might have been better in the Comics.

    Why? Hasbro should've gave us a proper G1 game. Where we can play both sides have a multiplayer and escalation again. But no the y give us a campaign and expect $40? No thanks

    Though I love all the nods to the G1 cartoon aesthetic and especially the return of many of the original voice actors, I still have my doubts about the game. The cyberforming of Earth is a storyline that we've been down several times before, most notably Season 2's "City of Steel" from the Sunbow cartoon and the first G1 miniseries by Dreamwave Comics. I suppose the biggest disappointment is that lack of Autobots from what I've seen, playable or otherwise.

    Yeah, it's cool that there's lots of Decepticons, even TWO combiners at that with the inclusion of Menasor alongside Devastator, but it stinks that you can't play as any of the 'cons.

    And again, as for the Autobots, only FIVE? Unless, there are a bunch of the other Autobots as NPCs like Prowl, Jazz, Ratchet, and the rest, this is kind of underwhelming.

    I don't know, I'll probably get it when a STEAM sale pops up, but I think I was still hoping for something that connected to Fall of Cybertron. Unfortunately, I think it's safe to say that those possibilities are now gone.

    That's such an awful cliche. A game is only a mindless button masher if you play them like that/don't learn the mechanics or play on the easiest difficulty.

    I was excited initially for it but when I saw the game review its not worth the price. I'm going to wait till it goes up on sale.

    Come people don't trash the game yet! Hell it just came out and I'm sure there will be plenty of DLC to come or a part 2 of the game.

    Since I grew up in the G1 era of cartoons and toys, this is a game I will enjoy, button mashing or not...
