Transformers launch trailer

Transformers launch trailer

Activision is on a roll this week, as not only did they release a new FPS mixing Bioshock with Timeshift, but they also launched Transformers: War for Cybertron, developed by High Moon Studios. According to the first reviews, the game is apparently a nice surprise, especially considering how awful the previous titles in the franchise have been in the past few years. It is certainly due to the fact that it is not movie related at all and that the developers really tried to please the fans. We wish we had some homemade footage to show you guys but unfortunately, Activision has not answered our mail so we don't know if/when we will get our own copy. That being said, the launch trailer is available inside for those of you who want to check if there is more to it than meets the eye.

The game looks amazing, of course. But I just can't go back from the movies' robots design to their original ones. The evolution has got me.

Seems like the first really solid Transformers game ever. Played the MP demo and it was pretty fun/awesome.
I don't have the $$$ for a game like this though.

more like the design is a piece of crap *^_^*

The engine that can gave us Mass Effect quality of scenery, is just used in the same blocky shitty copy/paste of repetetive constructions.

I was surprised by how poor the visuals were when I played the game. They had an in-game cutscene of Megatron and his face was a blurry mess. I had to check my PC settings to make sure it was on high. Not to mention the bs 30fps cap.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks EA's license is supposed to be up this year I think. I wish 2K could make an NFL game again. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks NFL2K was also the franchise that made it painfully obvious how little Madden was changing year to year. EA had to buy the NFL, and 2K bought the MLB in response I believe. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Even though EA had their games on the Saturn and that flopped hard, the Saturn ran headlong into the famous "$299" mic drop moment. (2 Hours ago)
