Xbox 360 PS3 Wii

Activision announced Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen earlier this week, and here is the first trailer. The game has a staggering five developers, where Krome handles the PS2 and Wii versions while Luxoflux does the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 versions.

Activision press release:
The fate of the earth and the survival of the human race hang in the balance in the TransformersTM: Revenge of the Fallen video game from Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI). Based on Hasbro's legendary TRANSFORMERS property and the most anticipated blockbuster film of 2009 from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures in association with Hasbro, the game propels players straight into an adrenaline-pumping battle for supremacy across the globe where every second and every choice makes the difference between mankind's salvation and annihilation.

"The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game will give fans the chance to experience their favorite AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS in an all-new, movie inspired adventure packed with the thrilling and explosive action that only the TRANSFORMERS universe can deliver," said Rob Kostich, vice president of global brand management, Activision, Inc. "We are thrilled to announce that after experiencing the rush of commanding colossal robots on their own, players can challenge their friends for the first time ever in full-featured, blistering multiplayer action as their favorite characters."

"Activision has developed a Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game that will give gamers and fans a truly compelling way to experience TRANSFORMERS," said Mark Blecher, Hasbro's General Manager of Digital Gaming and Media. "The Activision team's passion for the property clearly shows in the character development, intense action and rich graphics that really deliver an immersive experience for the user."

The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game lets gamers step into the shoes of the AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS, select any available mission and pick from the largest, most diverse range of playable Transformers - each with their own distinct abilities and weaponry. Set in unique environments across the globe such as Cairo and Shanghai, the game allows players to instantly switch between vehicle and robot modes as they drive, fly, fight and blast their way through intense, pressure-packed levels. After engaging in single player action, players for the first time ever will be able to go online and battle friends in all-new multiplayer modes.

The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game is currently in development by Luxoflux for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and for Windows PC by Beenox Studios.

Also, award-winning Krome Studios is developing distinct WiiTM and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system versions, utilizing the individual platform features to deliver an intense 3rd person action adventure game that combines dynamic robot combat with arcade-style vehicle sequences and flight-based levels. In addition, two completely different titles are being developed for Nintendo DSTM by Vicarious Visions, allowing players to take on AUTOBOT or DECEPTICON-specific campaigns. For the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, a unique, fast-paced action arcade title is being developed by Savage Entertainment.

The first film was fantastic but the game was diabolical! Hopefully they have learned their lesson this time! but im doubting it as movie tie in's have been an absolute disgrace since the bloody 80's!

First film was eeehh. Still wish they'd found someone else other than LeBOUF and "random hawt chik#451".


The CG was insane though.

The game based on Transformers Armada was awesome, but... it was based on Transformers Armada. :|

So the irony is that despite the goodness of that game there still aren't any halfway decent G1 Transformers games. Also, it seems Activision has no intention of letting Melbourne work on the movie property, which is a shame.

I didn't have a problem with Shia LeBouf (or however his name is spelt, lol!) and I don't think Megan Fox was that hot and a bit of a bland actress. However I thought they messed up the movie by not sticking to the original designs and by having the movie told from the humans' point of view rather than the Thransformers' like the original cartoon. Also the movie was just full of unfinished plotlines. I don't know why they didn't just make a live-action version of either the original cartoon pilot (More Than Meets The Eye) or Transformers: The Movie. More Than Meets The Eye features the Decepticons stealing the Earth's oil to make energon cubes, how topical is that?!

Because humans were meant to go watch this film. Ordinary earthlings as opposed to just people who went there with a prebaked total understanding of the Transformers universe. They HAD to tell that story from a perspective an uninitiated audience could relate to.

I personally thought there were a surprising amount of winks and nods to fans, and I fully expect the sequel to explore the more fantastical bits more in depth.

Simon: well they totally went overboard with whoring it out if you ask me...i mean, the only thing 2008 transformers has in common with 80s transformers is the name(s).

In any case i don't give two shits about this game, though i kind of want to see the movie. Mainly because of the awesome cg. It was awesome in the first and will hopefully be awesome in the second :)

The original Transformers cartoon was watched by humans and humans went to the cinema to watch Transformers: The Movie (yeah, I know it was actually a flop at the cinema originally but it became bigger on video) despite the TV show and movie being from the Transformers' perspective and if it wasn't for those then there wouldn't have even been a live action movie so I don't see the problem making the live action movies from the Transformers' perspective. At least they caved in a little to the actual FANS and have Peter Cullen doing Optimus Prime's voice and kept his look at least resembling the original. I still think a live action version of Transformers: The Movie would make $1 billion! (Worldwide.)

Shia Laboeuf is pretty fantastic as far as young actors go. I find him wholly convincing in everything he's in. It's actually a shame that Indiana Jones 4 has to sully his resumé.

I'm SO glad they changed the designs of the all the Transformers. They simply would have looked retarded otherwise.

My biggest gripe with the first one is that stupid cd player Decepticon. It's animation and impish voice were just too goofy and didn't help the movie at all.

the only change in design which i didnt like was prime. he should have been a flat nosed truck imo. not the long nose he was in the movie. paint scheme shouldnt have included lame ass flames either. i honestly dont get why those choices where made tbh.

That stuff really didn't bother me at all. They said the truck design they used was simply more massive and imposing. The flames were kind of dumb, but it's not something I gave a second thought about.

I was a fan of Transformers as toys; I was really into them as comics or cartoons though.
