The Battle for Earth Begins... gamers control the outcome of the planet as they choose to protect it as Autobots or destroy it as Decepticons

Santa Monica, CA – June 26, 2007 – The fate of the world is in gamers’ hands with the announcement that TRANSFORMERS: The Game from Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), under license from HPG, the licensing division of Hasbro, Inc. has shipped to retail stores nationwide.  Timed to the highly anticipated theatrical release of the “TRANSFORMERS” live-action feature film from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, the game allows players to experience the unstoppable power and massive scale of the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS in an epic battle for Earth.

“TRANSFORMERS: The Game lets you choose your side – Autobots or Decepticons – to either protect or destroy Earth,” said Will Kassoy, senior vice president of global brand management, Activision, Inc.  “The game features fully destructible environments, an army of playable characters, split second changes from robot to vehicle form and a storyline that goes beyond the film to include some elements from the property’s long history that will also appeal to Generation 1 fans.”

“The Activision team has done an outstanding job of replicating the live-action movie scale and realism into TRANSFORMERS: The Game,” said Jeff Burdeen, Vice President of Digital Media for HPG.  “Across the current and next-generation platforms, gamers will have an awesome TRANSFORMERS experience from the amazing vehicle-to-robot changes to the heart-pounding action.”

In TRANSFORMERS: The Game for the consoles and PC, players are presented with dual campaigns as they choose from an unprecedented line-up of characters including OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, IRONHIDE, STARSCREAM, BUMBLEBEE and more.  Gamers must master each character’s unique weapons, moves and instantaneous conversions from robot to vehicle mode as they rampage through fully interactive and destructible environments in their quest to protect or destroy Earth.

The Nintendo DS™ offers two completely different games, TRANSFORMERS: AUTOBOTS and TRANSFORMERS: DECEPTICONS. Both titles enable players to engage in the “AllSpark Wars” through Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection where they must help their side win the global conflict between AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS via daily challenge missions and global player stats comparisons.  Each Nintendo DS game features 20 unique story missions plus more than 20 challenge missions as well as local wireless multiplayer modes for up to four players.

The PSPÒ (PlayStationÒ Portable) system version of TRANSFORMERS: The Game features more than 20 playable TRANSFORMERS characters with three combat modes and 19 story-based missions that have players playing both AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS as they progress through the game.  In addition, gamers can battle in four-player Ad Hoc wireless competitions including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Ascension Rites (king of the hill) and Secure the Energon (capture the flag), in more than 10 multiplayer arenas.

TRANSFORMERS: The Game was developed by Traveller’s Tales for the Xbox 360™ video game system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, Wii™ home video game system from Nintendo, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and PC, and is rated “T” (Teen) by the ESRB.  The PSP system version was developed by Savage Entertainment and is currently rated “E 10+” (Everyone 10 and older – Violence) by the ESRB.  Two unique games for Nintendo DS, TRANSFORMERS: AUTOBOTS and TRANSFORMERS: DECEPTICONS, were developed by Vicarious Visions and are rated “E 10+” (Everyone 10 and older - Violence) by the ESRB.  For more information about the game, visit http://www.transformersgame.com/.

I bought the PC version at Target today, as I suspected, it won't work on my Desktop, but it does on my laptop, so woot for that!.

I played only the first chapter on the Autobot side so far (I actually am having trouble getting past the second chapter, which is like a race/fight thing, wonder if there is a difficulty level change I haven't found).

From what I've played so far though, it is really cool, you can see your stomp prints in the ground! Driving in car mode is a little tricky though, especially when going fast. I might invest in a game controller for my computer to make things easier, keyboard on a laptop is not as easy as desktop.

Enough of my banter, let other post their stuff if they wish.

I bought the Nintendo DS versions. I plan on playing them by myself. I do like the Decepticon one better so far, just because I like the bad guys better. Yeah, vehicle mode is hard to get used to. You can scan other vehicles throughout the game for later use. It's a hard game to put down.

I'd like to get the Wii version of the game, I don't have a Wii, but I think it's time to consider buying one. Sorry, I'm sold on Nintendo. I prefer to play games on TV versus a portable system. I like this game better than the Armada based game on PS2. I still like the PS2 game. What I like better about the PS2 game is that you actually use popular characters like Optimus Prime, and Red Alert. They put a lot of effort in making these movie games.

No matter what source you have to play the games, if you like video games and Transformers, then I highly recommend buying one of the movie based games.

i dont know why maiden felt the need to "troll" in Spanish but, with that aside the ps2 vesion is pretty good....however im really disappointed at the so called "G1 skins"

I have to correct myself, you do use other characters in the movie game. I thought you just used the rookie robot the whole time. I guess I was wrong. I like the game even more now.

I have the DS and the Wii version. Both are great, and I just beat them both on the Autobot side. I just need to play through the Decepticons on the Wii game.

Oh yeah, you do get the opportunity to play as G1 Prime and G1 Megatron, but you need to collect the hidden Autobot emblems and Decepticon emblems to unlock them. These are the full models, and not just the skins like the ones you unlock with codes.

I bought the cybertron edition for my 360 and I'm actually disapointed.

The Negatives:No VS. mode, no character select screen. The camera is a pain in the butt. You just button mash the melee button against your foes as the weapons are useless against the decepticons. Once you start a melee combo it continues in one direction until it decides it's finished and then you can readjust your self to continue attacking. The levels are pretty much the same. (fight the drones, transform and head to the next section). The cut scenes are not from the movie.

The positives: You have two stories to follow, Autobot and decepticon. There is bonus content you can earn. Nice graphics but not mouth dropping. Some G1 repaints.

Overall a 6.5 out of 10. It only gets this because it's a Transformers game otherwise it would be a 3 in my book.
