New Transformers Game Hits Shelf

Movie-Game tie-in for the Transformers franchise hits the shelves

Keen to make the most of the release of the movie of the same name, Activision has released Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which is available in stores now.

It will be available in various versions for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and DSi consoles, as well as the PC. There has been no mention of a PSP version.

Players will also be able to engage Autobots and Decepticons in massive single and, for the first time ever, online multi-player battles as they fight to protect or annihilate all of mankind.
Each character has its own with their own distinct abilities and weaponry, with the game st in unique environments across the globe such as Cairo and Shanghai, the game allows players to instantly switch between vehicle and robot modes as they drive, fly, fight and blast their way through intense, pressure-packed levels.  After engaging in single player action, players for the first time ever will be able to go online and battle friends in all-new multiplayer modes.

Also available are two Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen games for Nintendo DS, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: Autobots and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: Decepticons.

The Wii version follows a similar storyline to the film and allows players to battle as both Autobots and Decepticons, through 15 levels featuring vehicular sequences, flight-based rail levels and blistering combat chains full of close-ranged strikes and projectile missile attacks.  Both games also feature instant-join co-op game play throughout the intense campaign.

The Nintendo DS titles enable players to engage in global competitions through Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection where they must help their side win the conflict between the Autobots and Decepticons through downloadable challenge missions.  For the first time, gamers can customise their own Transformers robot with a modular body part system that allows them to scan objects to access new parts and upgrade their character by installing unlockable pieces.  Additionally, players can challenge friends to intense, head-to-head battles through local wireless multi-player in Deathmatch mode.
