- Almost any kid that grew up in the Eighties will be happy to know that Atari today announced that Transformers Armada, a Playstation 2 game based on the popular Tv show and developed by Melbourne House, will be released on May 2004. Storyline
The year is 2010 and the war for supremacy between the Autobots and Decepticons continues. On Earth, a group of kids find a Transformer ship that crash landed long before the dawn of mankind. Accidentally, they activate the ship's long-dormant cargo of Mini-cons, not knowing that the Autobots and Decepticons once schemed to keep this ship and its payload from ever being found.
Mini-cons possess a unique ability to make ordinary Transformers extremely powerful - in fact, both Autobots and Decepticons tried to use them during the Great War. When the ferocity of the war grew out of control, a truce was called and a decision was made to rid the war of these dangerous devices: All Mini-cons were placed into a ship and sent drifting into space for millions of years. Now the Mini-cons have been awakened are on Earth and the Transformers want them back.Game Features
Transformers Armada is divided into missions; in each mission you have the chance of choosing the Autobot you prefer, and then you must battle trying to collect Mini-cons that will improve the fighting abilities of your robot. The big 3D environments, that appear richly detailed, can be explored on foot or transforming into a vehicle, if you want to go faster. It will be interesting to see how much the choice of a different Autobot will actually influence the outcome of a mission.Click here
