    Maybe... if you consider playing on harder difficulties or hunting for secrets replay value.

    Maybe in Poland. Anyway, my point isn't to argue quality of gameplay; rather, how little content you get for your $50. Unfortunately since it's Activision published it'll probably never drop below $20... which is what the retail price should be.

    And not for $10/hour. That's more than the average codexer earns:keepmyjewgold:

    Oh, there's also apparently 'challenges' but I don't think they're very time-consuming.

    The smug emote should be used judiciously, not spammed every post you make.

    Did you play any of those three games or know enough about them to make that judgement call?

    Actually German amazon sells pc box for 18 euro buy for some reason release date is month away. I think this would be proper price everywhere even is someone is not fan of genre or Transfomers. Anyway judging by previous Platinum games next difficulty modes should give decent replay value. In their games these usually work like proper new game plus+ with different sets of enemies and better ai.

    Soooo, can you transform at will? Is the 5 hours of game play actually fun, because if so it doesn't matter if it is 5 hours per character, beat em ups are typically quite short. SF4 takes under an hour to beat with any character, for instance.

    Yeah, it even serves few functions beyond moving faster. There are some item caches which can be destroyed by attack available after gaining more speed in vehicle mode, same with some enemies with shields. It can also serve as slam to damage enemies and unlock stashes hidden in ground and is equivalent of wicked waves in Bayonetta.

    Wish they'd finally get around to using transforming for, you you, the essence behind "More than meets the eye" - hiding and setting up ambushes.

    The game is pretty fun for an old fart like me who watched classic Transformers as a kid. Combat is solid if very formulaic for a Platinum game, visuals are really ace and the music is pretty good too. I don't really give a fuck if the game is short, in fact I'm actually glad it is because I don't think I would have the patience to play it for a dozen hours.

    It's like a better Legend of Korra basically - doesn't feel like a full production like Bayonetta but doesn't feel as cheap as Korra. Combat isn't as good as in MGR, but it's pretty satisfying and all the bots feel great, even though the moveset is the same for all of them, at least so far. There's the usual shit like jump cancelling, roll cancelling, camera is a bit shit so far especially in bosses and I kinda regret starting the game on the hardest difficulty not because it's hard, but rather because there seems to be a lot of HP bloat in bosses also.

    All in all, a great jap homage to classic Transformers, they know what's up.

    I just found out that in 2017 all the Transformers games were pulled from Steam and other digital distributors (console too), apparently it was some licensing bs.
    A good reminder that piracy is good for you.
