Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, has anyone tried out the new Transformers: RotF games for 360/PS3? I read a review over at gamespot that seemed pretty positive, given its a movie tie in. It certainly has me intrigued enough that I may give it a rental. Also, it doesn't hurt that I've never really played a good 3d transformers game (played the Transformers: Autobots game for the DS a few years back) and I've been jonesing to try one (avoided the first movie tie-in because I heard it was pretty terrible).
It seems (I only skimmed the review off of GS) that theres 3 modes (robot/vehicle/robot w/ weapons) and that one of the bigger complaints are the controls, specifically going from robot to vehicle to robot. Now, I'm not under any illusions that my love for transformers in general is probably clouding my judgment here (also having recently seen the movie, which I'm sure they're banking on), but could this be a decent game underneath all that?
So has anyone given this or the new Autobots/Decepticons games for the DS a try? Not much to go off of on the DS games, I saw IGN gave the autobots one a 7/10 (which seems to be the only review I can find, they gave the Decepticons game the same score, unsurprisingly).
