Transformers 2 Video Game Playable Characters

Activision has released the full list of playable characters for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game.

Autobots:
Optimus Prime
Ironhide
Breakaway
Bumblebee
Ratchet
Aerialbot (Multiplayer-Exclusive)
Protectobot (Multiplayer-Exclusive)

Decepticons:
Starscream
Sideways
Grindor
Long Haul
Megatron
Seeker (Multiplayer-Exclusive)

Based on the screenshot (above), I guess Seeker is really Skywarp and they couldn't use that name for some reason. Alternatively, they could mean any number of seekers (Thundercracker, Dirge, etc) who would all share the same character model of Starscream and simply have a different pallet of colors. Not sure what Aerialbot or Protectobot means either in this context. In G1, that is like the Constructicons as 5 Aerialbots merge to form Superion and 5 Protectobots merge to form Defensor. In this case, Aerialbot probably the name for the Breakaway character repaint and Protectobot is the rename for Ratchet. Thanks to D-Squared and Gregory for the link.

Another link here to some screenshots which had the great picture of Long Haul.

  4. The Seeker (Skywarp) doesn't look anything like Starscream which I am glad for.

    Lets hope that if they are in the movie, they continue to not look like Starscream clones since that would just be a lazy cop-out, in my opinion.

    It was fine for G1 because of budget and time and Animated simply did a tribute which was also fine, but if they do that in the movie verse, that is just lazy (which is something I don't expect from them) and takes away from the originality of the characters to simply make identical clones.

    It's also kinda sad Arcee wont be a playable character... but I am finding it odd how hush hush her character has been for so long.

  5. Kind of disappointing that Sideswipe isn't playable either. Doubt I would have got the game anyways, but if he were in... I might've thought a little harder about it.

    The list, in my opinion, seems rather weak.

  8. Very disappointed the lists are so shot. I was hoping for a lot more.

  9. @Y2G Yeah, this list is extremely weak. It almost seems like it's a fake. Why on earth wouldn't they include some obvious fan favorites like Sideswipe, the Twins, Jetfire, a couple of the Constructicons, maybe even some special levels built around Arcee, Ravage, and Soundwave.

    In fact, there's practically no difference from the first game. Grindor is basically Blackout. Who's going to want to play as Sideways when you know he's going to get his ass beat by Sideswipe?

    I do agree on the new model for Skywarp and hope that carries over into the movie.

  10. I am very disappointed with that list, seriously, none of the more exciting NEW bots are playable? Soundwave? Arcee? What's up with that?? >:

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ohhhhh c'mon please don't fuck this game up!!! I was really looking forward to playing with sideswipe and the twins, and flyng with jetfire, and SOudwave c'mon how could they forget you!how!??

  14. online play should be sweet!

    I bet the playable characters are in the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  15. They screwed up again, we can't play as sideswipe, the twins, any of the motorcyle bots, not all of the constructicons, devastator, the fallen......these people dont know how to get a clue when the last game sucked cause not everyone was playable, they gotta make everyone playable.

    ReplyDelete
  16. We will se if all the characters will be playable or not.. anyway keep in mind that the game could be updated to enable more features... Unfortunately Activision rarely updates their games on consoles.

    ReplyDelete
  17. This list BETTER NOT be true! I've been dying to use the Twins and Jetfire in online multiplayer. >:(

    ReplyDelete
  18. All the characters could still end up in the game but yes, unfortunate if you can't play all of them to at least some extent. I think it would defeat the purpose somewhat but who knows, I think this is either fake or all the details haven't been released yet.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What the hell? Grindor?

    Isn't it supposed to be Blackout?!

    ReplyDelete
  20. say who's that Autobot with the number 56 on his back?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Maybe it's a Protectobot that turns into a police car.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I dont think sooooo...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Let me guess scorpio you posted this on your blog 4 hours ago

    ReplyDelete
  24. uhhh.. maybe Bumblebee had a short stint playing for the Dallas Cowboys as defensive tackle #56 - not glamorous but it payed the bills.

    What do you mean you "don't think so"? What else could it possibly be? Streetwise is the Protectobot who turned into the cop car, and cop cars usually have a giant number on their roof. Unless maybe it's Prowl, but since the Protectobots have been announced, and Prowl hasn't, I'm gonna go with that.

  26. I just thought of something, wasn't there a article earlier about downloadable characters?

    ReplyDelete
  27. -Let me guess scorpio you posted this on your blog 4 hours ago-

    Anyone else think this guy is a dick. I`m sure what that guy meant was that the thing was already uploaded so you could have talked about it hours ago.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Why in the hell do they have Breakaway as a playable character instead of Sideswipe?

    ReplyDelete
  29. why are they nameing the blackout rip off grindor? Grindor is originally a minicon. They could have made him into a chopper with a different model or they couldve just named him blackout. this is one of the many screw ups in this retarded list. To put it lightly,this really sucks! maybe they will put more characters in multiplayer mode but i doubt it! is amazing how the are destroying a game that has a theme with so much potential! Well i guess it wouldn't be the first time that the video game world has let me down.

  30. i read a articl online saying that this game will have a ton of downloadable content, witch tells me that they are teasing us with a few playable bots an cons the they will give us more to download.

    ReplyDelete

    Dick. You`re just doing this to annoy people arent you. Well that blog is cool anyway. I like the Timelines and his 3D Sharkticon model.

  35. I agree with above. That blog is cool. Not as good as this one but still pretty cool. This one has all the information. The Scorp blog has it uploaded quickly.

    I agree with the Anonymous guy. Scorpy mentioned his blog 2 or three times and 1 of them was to reply to someone who asked about the blog. Just leave him alone since he hasnt posted his blog link since as he said. By doing all this you are only inviting the blog owner person to delete comments like what happened to the Devastator thread.

  38. Autobot Wall-E5/15/2009 5:12 PM

    I have always been an advocate of leaving Scorpio alone... I am an over eager younger fan too (I'm 14) Some other TransFans yell at me to stop posting five million TFW2005 topics everyday, but I am just excited for all of the new toys and the movie coming out soon.

    /off topic

    The game was boasting 40 characters playable (no reference to whether they include download characters)

    I think that they should include all movie characters for NON-DOWNLOAD. Otherwise that kind of defeats the purpose of having non-download new characters... (why have them programmed in when people would actually but them online?) They should have a deal like with MUA2 where if you preorder you get an extra character exclusive to pre ordering (I know about the gold deal) Like you can play as Jetfire online if you pre order (maybe he is single player only)

    In any case, there are Protectibots, Combaticons, Aerialbots, COnstructicons, Omnibots, and Seekers in the Battle for the AllSpark game v2. They are rendered like they would be in the game so I am guessing all of them are drone classes in the game as suggested before. I would like to play as Omnibots non-download, but this may not be the case. Other characters outta be included too.

    Last thing: That robot Sideways is attacking is probably Wheeljack seeing the off-white and blue color scheme, the sporty look of his overall form, and the little light-up "ears" that are puny in the picture, but would be him none the less. Does anyone else see that?

  39. "Autobot Wall-E" is a reformatted version of "SkidMudswipe" from previous posts. From now on, I will go with this seeing how that is my TFW2005 name. I am done with the long process of getting the AIM SkidMudswipe name to load.

  40. The Transformers always brings back memories of being a kid. Great franchise!
