Transformers: The Game interview

There's something funny about the fact that one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, Transformers, is based on a cartoon that was ostensibly a thirty minute infomercial for toys. But will the corresponding game also be just another promotional tool? Executive Producer Daniel Suarez explains what Activision did to ensure that Transformers: The Game was more than meets the bottom line.

GamesRadar: For those who haven't seen it yet, what kind of game is it?

Daniel Suarez: It's a single-player, action/adventure game that pits The Autobots and The Decepticons against each other in a quest to the Allspark, this life-giving force that had been on Cybertron [the Transformers home world], but is now on Earth. The game centers around the robots themselves, and when you start playing, you’re given the choice of either being The Autobots or The Decepticons.
