I was pretty disappointed by Michael Bay's Transformers movies, and I'm not even a fan of the comics, cartoons or toys. I imagine a lot of Transformers fans agree with me, but thankfully Transformers: War for Cybertron
looks like just what the doctor ordered. In this trailer the dev team talks about the backstory for the game, which details the massive Cybertron war that kicked off the whole Autobot/Decepticon deal. The game looks fantastic and a lot less goofy than the films. I particularly like how the vehicle forms look like generic sci-fi cars, instead of the brand-name cars they use as disguises on Earth. It wouldn't make much sense for Optimus Prime to turn into a semi truck years before he ever hung out with humans.
