I played for a couple of hours last night. It's alright.

It looks a bit...generic TBH. It's supposed to be Cybertron but could be from any game on the xbox that uses the Unreal engine.

Also, assigning transformation to clicking the left analogue stick pisses me off, as I keep transforming by accident.

Generic isn't always necessariy bad. Transformers for the PS2 was a generic 3rd person Halo clone, but it was hella fun.

I'll be downloading this demo ASAP. La Fuerza 418 if we're not already friends.

Sorry, I meant it looks generic. The art direction is very dull

Thanks to a Gold promo ( 1 month for a dollar? SOLD) I shall finally get a chance to play.

Huzzah! :joy:

Let's switch that to: $#@^#&@@#%#$% I keep getting killed, I can't aim for **** and the connection keeps kicking me out of matches, so I lose any xp I might have gained!

SO not awesomesauce! But funny as hell at the same time. Everyone is a **********. :o I also keep transforming by accident, and yes it also pisses me off.

Hmm... anybody know if this will be released for the PC? I'm quite curious to check it out myself.

yeah i think it is.

In terms of the tranformation button there is a different button layout that puts it at Y and weapons selection on the Dpad.

It takes a little while to adjust but overall its better. Transforming definitely adds an element to the usual multiplayer shootery. Mainly be making it easier to run away...

They have definitely come up with a better control set up than ROTF

In terms of the decor - yeah its a bit generic but its only one level so far right?

My other gripe would be that the melee is quite hard to direct - i seem to often end up jumping past he guy i am trying to hit and lading right in their sights.

Based on this though i'll be getting this i think.

I played the demo of this and wasn't too impressed. But then I prefer co-op over pvp, I am still interested in the campaign mode of this game though.
