If you were a child growing up in the '80s, you were aware of the cultural phenomenon known as the Transformers. The wildly popular cartoon that initially ran for almost 100 episodes spawned an animated movie, massive toy and merchandise line, and became a pop culture reference. Well, it's taken more than twenty years, but the Transformers will be returning to the silver screen this summer. Thanks to Activision and Traveller's Tales, the galaxy spanning battle between Autobots and Decepticons will rage in homes as well when Transformers: The Game is released this June.
Tied very closely to the story of the movie, the plot of the game revolves around the discovery and retrieval of the Allspark, an item that provides the life giving soul for every Transformer. Hidden away on Earth during the massive war on Cybertron between Autobots and Decepticons, the Allspark could tip the balance of power to either side, making it a valuable tactical prize for both factions. Unfortunately for the unsuspecting humans on Earth, their world is about to become the latest battlefield between the robot warriors. Here's where players come in: as soon as the game starts, you're given your chance to decide which side you want to play. If you choose the Autobots, you attempt to protect Earth and its inhabitants from the ravaging forces of the Decepticons. This selection follows many of the events from the film rather closely. On the other hand, if you select the Decepticons, you'll follow a "what if" scenario where the evil machines smash their way through civilization.
