    So the purpose of this game is collect all the decepticons and trade them with other players who have the autobots version?
    This rings a bell...

    Decpticons you play Decepticons.
    Autobots you play Autobots.

    Bother games have different missions, one will have Desert levels and the other has Antarctic levels.

    So the differences are somewhat more significant than between the Pokémon games?

    As for wifi, you fight in some battles online, and whichever game is winning, is what side shows up on the main website.

    Hell no there are lots of things wrong with the game! Incredibly dull and repetitive. 12 year olds may like it but us with gaming experience wont.

    I actually went and preordered the pc-version of Transformers: The Game yesterday. Now I have to wait for both the movie AND the game for nearly two weeks so I really don`t care if the game would turn out the reincarnation of Superman 64, I need my dosage of these fantastic bots! [​IMG]

    And yes, I have a pile of the comic-books and the action-figures at home. But at 25, while it`s still cool to read the comics, playing with the figures would probably just get my fiancé worried. So I`d better find a digital playground for my toys. [​IMG]

    This is actually fun, shooting controls suck, but the free roaming is nice, like gta w/o blood.
    That said, I want moar games that free roam.

    I just wish it wasn't pink.

    Pink? Seriously?

    This game is great. It's just like GTA but with giant robots.

    The flickering is minor in only a few parts, barely an issue. It also has tons of voice.

    I like everything about the controls except transforming. You have to tap the screen to do it, which is kinda understandable since there aren't any other buttons for it. Same for scanning and mission details. Maybe they could have used the select button. Next time I guess.

    In robot mode - L and R control the camera, directional pad moves, B is jump, A is attack, X picks up objects and Y is your blaster.

    After holding Y for you blaster, left and right on directional pad is strafe.

    There are problaby even more controls since I couldn't get the blaster until I leveled up, which gives you more moves.

    I even played online, which isn't technically online. What it is is an offline destroy the ememy in a set amount of time mini-game. After you do it you connect online to add your score for daily rankings with either Autobots or Decepticons. I'm ranked 25 as screenname "60fps".

    The cool thing is you still level up in the online battle also. After I got level online I got weapons for vehicle mode.

    Overall fun game. You can even pick up other Transformers and throw them.
