Xbox 360 PS3

Activision has finally released a new batch of images from Transformers: The Game. The release is planned to be this summer, so it's surprising that they still haven't released any trailer yet.

I'd much rather have them make a stand alone Transformers game instead of movie-based one....

The new Transformer designs have no character at all, they all look exactly the same save for the colour scheme.

And the proportions are still fucked right up. Those robots both transform into *cars*.

Michael Bay (ew!) specifically said he wanted them to be realistic (there's that party pooper word again!) and therefore be able to physically transform into whatever they become. No magic shrinking tape recorders or anything like that. So, I guess Bumblebee transforms into one huge camaro.

I guess they started the game really late. This smells like a rush job. I almost feel bad for the poor studio that is in charge of making something playable out of the last minute assets they received.

Publisher: "Take a Million dollars and make me a Transformers game"
Developer: "Great, the cartoons will be enough source material"
Publisher: "Are you fucking kidding me? If you want source material look at the trailer!"
Developer: "How much time do we have?"
Publisher: "Have a demo ready for tomorrow, we are launching in six months, so the game has to be ready for press in 4!"
Developer: ... *cries*

The real stupidity at work here (if profitability is viewed as clever, and I think it should be) it's that they actually took this away from the people who made Transformers Armada for PS2, which was bloody excellent, and gave it to a team that are unlikely to treat it with as much love and care.

Sort of exactly like when EA took Buffy from The Collective and gave it to fucking Eurocom. Wtf?

Disregarding of the utterly charmless iteration of transformers this represents, surely the shift in developers is the most worrying thing. In terms of development time however, this has been worked on since ages back. Not that i believe that will actually make a difference.

Let's hope the movie fails miserably so these designs don't echo for long though. It's depressing to the point of heartbreak to see what they've done to everyone besides perhaps Optimus Prime. :(

The minute Michael Bay was announced as the director, your expectations should have been drastically lowered :P

Oh they were, but nothing could prepare me for the first teaser. When I realised the transformers would look like Number 5 I freaked out completely.

I really hate this new style of Transformers. The robots look like assembled piles of junkyard trash.

Noone will be able to make a personal connection with the robots like we could as kids because of this

Oh, dang. Synce beat me to the junk analogy. Still, the art director & modeling crew for the film should commit mass suicide. Not for mis-interpreting the Transformers, but for creating about the ugliest things ever.

Those transformers look horrible, I must admit.

This may be the only instance where someone should refer to the 80's for a superior art model.

Michael Bay has single handedly destoried the look and feel that made the transformers such endearing characters in the past. The now all look like generic cg models of Robots basicly humans could build, not robots from another planet. Both Optimus and Megatron have lost all the character thier old 80's counter parts have, I only hope this game has a "classic" model mode where you can have the transformers looking like they did back in the glory days of the cartoon, atleast that will be somthing.

Thank you Michael Bay for raping my childhood! Hope you never make another movie after this shit

Is this the game about the Citroen commercial? I love the dancing robot and the skating robot. WHEEE!

Oh I see, its some sort of ultracynical, pretentious, neo-scifi nonsense version of the Transformers. They look like shattered blocks of ice. Or maybe they're damaged! You can see their bare naked endoskeletons.

The robots in the commercials are more Transformers than this BS!
