Transformers: War for Cybertron

I'm not exactly the biggest Transformers fan in the world, but i do like them and i'm kinda curious about this game. Looks pretty good and it will come out in 4 days.
Oh and this is NOT based on any movie or anything so don't worry Michael Bay has nothing to do with this

Anyone else excited? Or has any xbox owners played the demo already?

Sorry can't resist to put this here but this is simply the best commercial i've ever seen

My friend, who is one of the top 10 Revenge of the Fallen players in the world (I know, exciting huh?), has been following this game for a long while. Revenge of the Fallen's community has moved over, which is fair sized since the old Chrome Hounds community fused with it when their servers went down.

From what little I've seen of the Demo it looks like an alright game. The odd 3ed person angle they have takes some getting used to, but overall its a typical class based 3ed person shooter.

The video looks amazing, but trailers ALWAYS look amazing. However this does look like the greatest Transformers game ever, so its got that going for it.

The GameSpot commercial is the single funniest thing I have seen in a long while.

Alright it wins. I will buy it, I like Transformers. (Not the Micheal Bay Transformers only ever watched that to see Megan Fox haha).

This games looks gorgeous, and pretty sweet if your a Transformers fan, I love the idea. Wish it was FPS not 3rd but I understand the reason it would be 3rd.

FPS would make no sense in this game, and likely give alot of folks that simulated type of motion sickness ...bleh

I can't understand why everything has to be FPS with some people...

I can't imagine transforming in 1st person either. Of course it's not impossible but would look pretty stupid. And besides you couldn't even see the animation.

IGN has a review up - http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/110/1100843p1.html

It actually sounds a hell of a lot better than I was expecting (or dreading). Good news that Peter Cullen is in as Prime. I was going to pass over this, but now I may have to check it out.

So where is "our" Prime at? I would love to hear his thoughts on the matter.

Well after being in Stockholm for the past month or so for work it seems I have missed a lot lately, like TFU2 and TOR trailers and the release of this.

I saw this trailer a while ago and thought it looked pretty cool and a liked the different take, even though I would prefer an earth-based game. But growing up with a lack of TF games (I really only played the one on the C64) I won't nitpick.

If I get time tonight I'll try the demo, but with the NBA draft it might be occupied.

But reading the reviews there are a couple things that are disappointing. First is the fact that the total time for playing both campaigns is about 8 hours, and that the custom transformer creation is only for MP. I had originally thought you could do it for SP as well.

Yeah it seems the SP gamer is getting shafted more and more often these days with everyone scrambling to jump on the MP bandwagon.

Being a relatively new XBox owner, the beef I have with MP is that when I pick up a game that is even a bit less than a year old in all but fairly rare cases the community has pretty much moved on. So a game that focuses on MP is pretty much nerfed in the long term. I know I'm old school, but I like going back to older games from time to time.

Hell, I'm planning on playing KOTOR and BG2 again soon...

I tried the MP demo and really couldn't get into it. I think part of the problem was not tracking down an online manual to have everything make sense. The character generation is a cool idea, but it is so limiting that it was a but of a turnoff. I'll probably pick it up when it comes down in price though.
