well I dont now how my excpectations are set because I mean look at it guys, it's a movie game. although I allready went and preordered my game for psp because of the fact that some g1 playable characters will make an appearince in the psp exclusive, maybe a g1 skin for optimus and megatron.
Even though it might suck lets look on the upside,we have frank welker repriseing his role and peter cullen as optimus prime! thats good enough for me. hopefully, in the end it will turn out as good as the armada game did, it got an 8 out of 10 in electronic gaming monthly magazine.

The only way I'll buy this game is if they make a easter egg which makes all the movie transformers look like G1 characters. Then it would rock!

I think thats what they're doin' Mathew. although it might not be all of the characters maybe just the popular ones' like starscream, megatron, optimus, bumblebee, etc. its said to be a psp exclusive ability though.
