    Oh you mentioned Omega Supreme! You must know everything about Transformers. You couldn't mention Trypticon or is it you didn't want to spoil that boss battle after spoiling Omega Supreme. Gamesradar has a bad history of spoiling games and it atrocious that you do it in your reviews. Also the early exploits of the autobots/decepticons have already been covered in the comic series by IDW Transformers: The War Within. I think if you were a true fan you would have mention this in your review and maybe explained to us real fans what has changed in terms of canon. You didn't mention once the amazing Stan Bush so I give your review an 8. And most of all I can't stand your holier than thou attitude when it comes to reviews. Why you get to crap all over Transformers 2, despite it being a huge commercial success (863 million world wide). I didn't personally didn't care for the racist autobot skids, but you know who did? My 7 year old nephew. Have you ever thought for a second that maybe all movies are catered to single male man in their twenties? I thought Tranformers 2 was a fun and entertaining movie (Optimus combining with Jetfire! too cool). I find it highly offensive that you essentially put down my taste because I don't share the same opinion. There are different types of movies because there are different types of people. You opinions are no better than mine. So next time you go and review a GAME try leaving your grudges against another product of a different medium at the door.

    They should have had someone that knows a little bit about Transformers write this review. Henry said, "we finally have a game that isn’t beholden to any film or modern cartoon". What the hell, man? Everyone knows this game is based on an old cartoon from the 80's called 'Transformers'. There's also been a couple movies in the last few years. It really bugs me when they have nons (my word for non fans) write reviews for games based on popular franchises. If Henry is reading this, he might want to take this advice: Do a little research next time you write a review like this. You might even get it right next time.

    I never watched Transformers as a kid. The previews looked good and the trailers peaked my interest. I did some research into the whole genre and was surprised to learn that Transformers was actually first thought of when one of the creators of Transformers was watching a rather intense episode of Lost In Space and thought to himself how great it would be to make a series full of robots. The recent movies were appearently pretty good because they made an animated series based off the movies, but it's a shame Megan and Shia didn't sign the deal, I read they held out for more money. Anyway, I buckled down and bought the game for my PC and didn't really see the hype. It's like controlling Batman from Arkham Asylum that can shoot guns. Batman, now THERE was a game. At least they got Mark Hamill to voice one of the Transformers as he did Commissioner Gordon. (And I hate to say it, but Batman would win against Superman any day of the week) I still can't tell the difference between an Autocon and an Autobot so I ended up uninstalling the game from Steam after getting halfway through level 1. It was just a run and gun experience for me and I got bored easily. Transformers definately needs more RTS elements to it to keep people interested. Oh well, I guess it's back to SC2 for me. What's great about that game is it does have units that transform, so it's almost as if I'm playing Transformers while playing SC2.

    I don't get why so many people are into transformers. They weren't even the coolest transforming toy around. go bots, mask, voltron are all better.

    I have to say I have a few complaints with this review, and I don't like to bring them up since I happen to like reading Henry's articles. But I feel I must. One error I noticed was the fact he mentioned 3 player co-op. That's incorrect. It makes no sense that every other game to date features either 2 or 4 player co-op (Re5 and Castle Crashers respectively), that this game should have 3. It actually does have 4 player co-op, just like every other big action game has, because anything else would just be silly and it wouldn't sell as well. My next error to point out would be the fact that Henry, a few times, points out how good the characters look. I'd have to disagree. The characters looks like High Moon Studios took their old Transformers toys circa '83 and tried to cram those crappy, chunky, horrific models into an HD TV and expect everything to flow beautifully. Consider that one childhood dream of being able to seamlessly switch between Optimus' vehicle mode and Robot mode and looking incredibly awesome and fluid, completely pissed on. My 3rd error to point out would be the fact you rated this game HIGHER than Revenge of the Fallen: The Game. That, is just slanderous, against Activision and against Luxoflux. The fact that a game based on a very successful movie doesn't get a higher score based off a game that has nothing to do with the movie... All I have to say is, your bias is showing, Mr. Gilbert. And finally, my biggest bone to pick, and the most infuriating error you produced in this article, was the fact that you mention the war between Autobots and Decepticons. That is simply, flat out, not true. The FIRST instance of those tow factions fighting was after Primus created the first Autobots, and that first battle, that would start the entire war, was between the original Optimus Prime, and Liege Maximo. These, were the two legendary figures that were the spark that started the war between Robot Good, and Robot Evil. http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/Cybertronian_Civil_Wars <-- I even did my homework, and have proof! It's unfortunate that Henry has fallen so far from his normally good graces with this review. It truly is. Hopefully his review of the next Transformers game, based on the 3rd movie coming out in 2011, simply title; Transformers 3. And the tag line; Remember: Bitches Ain't Shit.

    Oh, all these comments are an absolute joy to read. @Everyone who cried - It's a review. Get a fucking life. I love Transformers as much as anyone else, which is a lot, but the fuckwits who rage over a simple review that holds a journalistic opinion seriously need to shut the fuck up. Who gives a shit if this review constantly compared the game to Gears. While I along with the obvious amount of retards disagree, and think that the game isn't really like Gears (I played the demo, so I have some knowledge of it's gameplay), but who gives a flying fuck? Not me, that's for sure. Also, SL, what's up with the spamming dawg? ... Oh yeah, I still haven't got it. I'm gonna need to look everywhere to find the cheapest possible copy :/
