Im a big transformers fan, back to Gen 1. But I'm a little leery about this game. They seem to be putting alot of emphasis on the multiplayer, and we've seen time and time again that a shitty MP will hurt the singleplayer experience as well.
Anybody think this game will be a success?
I really hope not. I think it looks really good (I love that Omega Supreme is one of the bosses), but that doesn't really matter if there's nobody around to play the multiplayer, since it's the focus of the game. I suspect that it will be a flop. Might make for a good $20 purchase down the road, though.
I cancelled my pre-order. Wasn't ready to commit to buying it. I'm not that into multiplayer, and haven't heard much about the campaign from previews.
That said, I'll definitely pick it up if it reviews well. Transformers were the crux of my existence when I was a lad.
I hope the game is quality more than I have hopes for it's financial success. It's weird that they're putting so much focus into the multiplayer & having tooled around with that demo I can say that it was fun but didn't seem to have much staying power. You roll around & shoot stuff, you unlock a few features that makes it easier to avoid being shot, but that's about it. If the multiplayer is going to be the focus of that title then I don't have much hope for the single player portion. Still hoping though!
The demo had so little of the game to see that all it really did was show that you move and shoot stuff. I saw a video of someone who got it early and they said the campaign is quite short, saying quote " even if you play through both campaigns on the three difficulties, you would be done in a day". This was video of a dude talking, no gameplay, no proof he even had the game. So it might be BS or speculation on his part. He looked like a day to him literally means he sat in his room all day while growing his neckbeard and playing nonstop, so a day might mean 20+ hours.
The endings to both campaigns are already on youtube, both consist of huge boss battles reminiscent of the Armada game's Tidal Wave encounter.
I think the game will be a success, not a huge breakout hit that will be anyone's game of the year, but it will sell well to the TF fans that game. They chose a great time to release the game since Botcon (the big TF convention) is this weekend so fans are geared to get some TF action. The old Armada game was a success too, and it had far less going for it in terms of story and setting. Optimus was the only original character in it, everyone else was from later series.
I sure hope it does well since it's probably the most fun I've had reliving my childhood in a long time. My only fear is that if it does go well Activision will rape it to death just like they do everything else. Course the multiplayer is a lot of fun so I won't mind seeing some DLC.
It was an OK game. I didnt really care about the Deception campaign, it felt like it just dragged on. Other than having no cover system, my biggest complaint was some of the boss fights, especially the last like 2. It was basically drive around in circle, then shoot X-target on body as much as you can before you have to start moving. It was just to common, it seemed like every boss had a similar feel.
Yep i think it will for Transformers Fans...Awesome game,im loving every minute of it!
