PASSPORT: GET

FUCK YEAH 25 DAYS AND THEN I WILL BE FLINGING MYSELF INTO AKAI'S LOVING EMBRACE.



Okay so I'm playing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen for the 360.





CONS (not to be confused with Decepticons)

-The character models are shiny, but the motions are shoddy at best during cutscenes. Like, I'm talking repeated movements and jerks when they need to loop said movement because the sentence is longer than the movement timeframe. Fail, guys.

-The voices aren't the same, but they're close enough for me to not care. I didn't get what the fuck was happening with Bumblebee until I realized that instead of speaking, he was using general voice clips. ...which got annoying. I'd rather just have him making robot-y sounds.

-Controls are a bit sluggish; even with speed-based characters like Bumblebee, I kind of button-mash my melee and wait for it to work.

-Breakaway is in it. This would be all right if it were BREAKAWAY. Instead he is a random jet that cannot heal. Clearly this is not Breakaway.

-Thus far, there is no storyline. Just "we are in NEST, les' do sum missions gaiz."


PROS

-I'M A GODDAMN TRANSFORMER

-I'M A GODDAMN AUTOBOT/DECEPTICON

-I'M OPTIMUS THE GODDAMN PRIME (SOMETIMES)

-Bumblebee, despite his annoying sound bytes, is really really cute in that he's like...half the size of most of the Decepticons. SO CUTE AHHHH. ♥

-The game is moderately fun. I get to run through cities and climb buildings and smash shit up. Oil tankers explode when you smack them.



OTHER OBSERVATIONS

-This game reeeeeeeally makes me want more Autobots at the boat. Especially Optimus (POINTED LOOK AT KUKKI) and an Ironhide.

-Okay so I was playing the game, it was relatively easy. Just a few missions; kill these Decepticons with Ironhide, he is a bamf. O no, Ironhide's hurt; Ratchet, go get him. Like that. I get to the third mission and it's like "fight these gaiz," and your playable character for that mission is THE GODDAMN PRIME. So I'm just like "ffff easy mission, I'm playing as Optimus. No possible loss here."

Those of you who've seen the first movie; remember that huuuuuuuge Decepticon in Shanghai in the beginning of the movie? Demolishor? You fight him with Optimus.

HE OWNED ME.

Clearly, as I was playing THE GODDAMN PRIME, I had thought something was wrong. So I tried again.

LOST AGAIN. WHAT.

So I just redid a couple missions and got more Energon to boost my party stats. B| Fuck you game.


All in all, my rating? ...meh. Not worth buying now, but later when it hits like...thirty. It's a fun game, but the only REAL pull is that I'm playing as a Goddamn Transformer.
