Being a child of the ‘80s, when the first live action Transformers film came out, a tear came to my eye for the pure joy. After watching the second live action Transformers film, I teared up yet again, this time in disgust. So, when I heard that they were coming out with a new transformers game that is not based on the films, I was hit with a mixture of excitement and dread. The game and film studios tried to cash in on both recent movies with video game offshoots, which were both released to bad to mixed reviews. The new game does not take place on our planet, instead it takes place back on the Transformers own soil… or silicon, back on their home planet of Cybertron. The trailer below is the first to feature real game play footage and it looks promising.
