Old School Transformers Video Game Reviews

Excited for this summer's release of War For Cybertron?  To hold you over, we thought you might enjoy this trip down memory lane to remember the games of yester-year.  If you need a good laugh, check out the "Angry Video Game Nerd" review of the original U.S. & Japanese (G1) Transformers games for the Commodore 64 and Nintendo "Famicon" (Japan only)...  

Be warned the language is PG-13+ but absolutely hilarious.  Thanks to Will for passing along the sweet link!

And how old is this video? JK ;)

The Transformers: Battle to Save the Earth - a lame game for a lame system

Transformers: Convoy no Nazo - ah, yes. The game that makes you want to kill someone (including yourself). I remember when we conversed on this awful piece of garbage way back when: Ah, good times, good times. :)

While the game may be utter slag, it eventually did become retconned into another piece of Transformers history: the Alternity line fiction. The Alternity story, "To Die Game!", retcons this game as being part of a cross-dimensional game between the hyper-dimensional guardian Optimus Prime and the equally powerful Megatron, wherein Optimus had to choose one avatar (Ultra Magnus) to fight endless hordes of Decepticons empowered by Megatron. This also reveals the black-colored Alternity Megatron toy to be the the Megatron from this video game. A "game full of death and suffering" indeed! LOL XD

Also when it comes to the Nerd, I'm more of a fan of the Nostalgia Critic instead. But they're both funny. :P

I'm only really aware of the AVGN's existence thanks to his feud with the Nostalgia Critic. That Retrospective video was epic. XD

And there's also The Plastic Addict's review of the same game which is, IMO, seriously funnier.
