The first thing I want to write about this video game is that it is a dream
When I was a little kid dreaming/fantasizing about being in the transformers
universe/on cybertron I could only dream of a game like this, the game is
visually much better than my dreams could ever be !
So almost needless to say, for a real transformer fan this game is to die
for and a must have.
But the game goes beyond fans... sort of I think... this game is very
Each mission is unique and stands by itself, very little repeated gameplay,
very little repeated story.
Every mission is like a story in itself and it's pretty fricking awesome.
This game has carved itself into my memory and I had to give it a week or so
for it to sink in... I needed a week to decide if I would write a review
about this game yes or no... I just wasn't sure if the memories would last
and if the awesomeness of it would last, but yes it does.
This game is awesome in pretty much every possible way, it already starts
with the game intro/menu/music. Just for that the game is already worth it.
I already look forward to a follow up to this game, just to see the next
menu design/system/graphics/music that the come up with.
The music is godly/godlike... modern with classic with vocal songs in it...
like uber catoclysmic ;) :) Like something big is about to happen, some big
story is about to revealed, and you bet ya ! ;) =D
Now come some spoilers so you might want to stop reading here.
My favorite part of the game is the last mission triology or whatever.
The part where I get to play with soundwave. (There is also a robot called
shockwave, not to be confused with).
Soundwave is pretty much the coolest sounding robot, but it's ability is
what makes it really cool. It has these little robots inside of it in the
form of cassette tapes as true fans of the series know... and that's just
awesome... soundwave can eject these little robots to fight for him ! ;)
I thought maybe people forgot about these awesome little robots, but nope !
They are in it ! At least 2 out of 3 are in it ! And that is exactly where
my critique is at this game... but they probably did it for me to want more
Two out of the three tiny little robots are in it:
1. Rummble !
2. Laser beak !
But my favorite one is missing:
3. Ravage ! The dog like robot ! which kidnapped spike in the television
series if I remember correctly, but my memory might be wrong anyway.
Another point of critique is that soundwave says: "rummble eject"... but it
also ejects laser beak which is fine but it doesn't say it... it should have
It should say it in a sequel/serial like:
"Rummble eject !" "Laser beak eject !"
Even cooler would be if I had the choice which one to eject if not even all
So a future game should have all three options as seperate options:
1. Rummble eject !
2. Laser beak eject !
3. Ravage eject !
And it would be even cooler if I could control any one of them... and take
over control and fight as rummble !! or ravage !
Other parts of the game I liked was the interaction between Jazz and
Cliffhanger ! Very cool to hear those voices again after so long ! Jazz is
definetly one smooth cool sounding and playing dude ! and so is cliffhanger
! ;) That part of the game is pretty cool.
I even replayed those parts for the coolness of it and to collect some more
I might also replay the first mission to hear the awesome optimus prime
discover metroplex... and the nice white light or something... "I sense your
It was also major fun to play either optimus prime or megatron at the end of
It was also fun to see megatron get destroyed...
It was also fun to see optimus prime captured.
It was insanely super cool to see the research projects of shockwave and to
hear that voice analyze those prehistorian dinosaurs/bots and mention their
strengths and weaknesses and also other projects. That voice is ubercool.
Unfortunately this research had little applications in the game itself... I
hope this will change in a sequel and make it more usuable or so... that
would be nice.
The return of grimlock/the voice was also super cool... very nice to know
that these guys are still alive.
Grimlock's fighting and dinosaur mode kinda bored me... I didn't think it
was that cool... though fighting in robot mode was kinda cool. A bit too
powerfull maybe but nice none the less.
The search for his friends was uber cool.
There were some unfortunate disappoints in the game.
My biggest disappoint is the voice of bruticus... I was looking forward to
hearing his original voice... one of my favorite deep/dumb/stupid voices in
the original series. I was hoping to hear this dumbed down body builder
scrambled super powerfull voice... a bit like arnold schwazneggert you
know... but in a bruticus way... Maybe the voice of arnold schwarzneggert
with some distortion and scrammbling and tweaking and twisting might sound
nice/better than the current voice... I didn't like it at all the current
voice and it kinda ruined the game for me.
STARSSSSCRRRREAAM didn't sound screaming at all... another one of my big
disappoints in this game.... it wasn't bad... but the original was much
better and more suiting... this voice needs to sound much more screaming and
screeching like... like it's trying to cut glass with it's voice... like it
was sharpened with a razor blade.
The voie of megatron was also kinda weird and a bit strange and probably not
the original though the wikipedia says otherwise... but I don't mind about
megatron... the original voice kinda annoyed me so it's a good candidate for
I kinda liked the voice of megatron but it sounded a little bit too high
pitch.. it needs to sound a little bit more dark... and less
theatrical/gayish... just a bit deeper and darker would make it more evil !
;) :) =D
What totally blows my mind is that they actually managed to 3d model
something that looks like an arc.... the yellow spaceship that crash landed
into the mountain... very few details of it are known... from the series...
very little is known about the interior of the ship... but we still get to
get a little peek inside of it which was totally awesome ! I could not
believe that I was actually inside the bloody fokking yellow arc ?! OH MY
GOD !!! The awesomeness of it ?!
The other thing which was kinda weird... is teletraan 1... (first of all
double A ? kinda weird but ok;)) but the real weird part is... it were some
kind of remote consoles... which were apperently linked up to teletraan 1
which is apperently on cybertron... and teletraan 1 talks to both robots...
I guess this is kinda normal because it did do this to the robots in the
original series... just the voice of it sounded to human like that was kinda
weird... it should sound very dry and robotic like without any emotion...
there was too much emotion in teletraan 1's voice. The original teletraan 1
voice had absolutely no emotion as far as I can remember... and computers
don't really have emotions so it makes perfect sense for it to be as
emotionless as possible... <- so lots of room for improvements for a future
game to make it more authentic. Don't get me wrong though the "stay cool
jazz" was kinda cool... but that's not how teletraan 1 talks... so it's a
big deviation from what it should be... dry, boring, emotionless , sometimes
simple, sometimes technical, definetly nerdy, but definetly not cool.
Teletraan 1 should be a big nerd, and not a cool dude ;) :) =D
The end portal were the ships disappear into was kinda weird... no
explanation is giving for this ? Why was there a portal ? Why do both ships
get sucked into it ?! It's kinda weird... nothing was ever mentioned about
it in the original series, but I will cut the developers some slack here...
to expand on the transformer universe/story and make it possible for them to
place the transformers in different universes before they reach earth for
more awesome gaming and story development. But some kind of explanation
should be given for the portal it's not required but it would be cool,
otherwise it remains unknown which is fine too but a bit whacky.
The death ? or major injury of bumblee at the end was cool... I kinda hate
this little yellow fokker... but I also kinda love this little yellow
fokker... I want to see him killed really badly... but I also want to see
him come back alive... like the little fokker he is ! Like a cockroach...
hard to extinquish, like a bug up megatrons ass, and sometimes optimus's too
lol ! ;) =D Little fokker he is, a joker and a pranker... him dieing and
coming back a live... biggest joke he could possible pull off ! ;) :)
Wieeee... you though you got rid of me ?! Well guess what ?! NOTTTT !!!
Bubble here to stay ! To bug you more up yours ASS ! ;) =D
The flying part in the game was pretty awesome as usual I would almost
say... but it was definetly even more awesome then the previous if I
remember correctly... The transforming from flying mode to robot mode back
to flying mode was also pretty much butter smooth and really helps to get a
feeling of action going on ! I do wish the transforming sound was a little
bit more higher volume cause it's cool.
The big BHWOOOMMFFFEDD that the helicopter robot makes in robot form is
coooool... like the transformer movie... it's some kind of shockwave....
blast off is his robot name... yeah... it's some kind of blast wave ! ;) :)
Nice tough to that robot ! ;)
I kinda missed playing with the other robots which form Bruticus ! I do hope
to see all of them in a sequel... or at least the missing robots ! ;) :)
I especially wanna see the truck
