Transformers – Dark of the Moon: New trailer video shows a lot of potential
Laser- and rocket-powered combat. Check. Lots of gleaming metal being slammed hard, punctured, blown to bits, and/or twisted. Check. Huge variety of vehicles involved in fast-paced combat. Check. While this checklist can apply to quite a few first person shooter games or space-based games, it definitely sums some of the reasons to get excited about the latest Transformers game title, Transformers – Dark side of the moon The launch trailer for Transformers – Dark side of the moon shows just how far we’ve come from the chintzy but classic animation of Optimus Prime back in the day.

Definitely a throwback and a foreign concept now because of the raw magic that is made possible by computer generated animation and imaging programs.

However, just like with any other video game trailer, it all boils down to two words: game play. We’ll just have to wait for future video releases to evaluate that crucial element.
