Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen DLC

Did you see the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen movie and/or video game? Not impressed with either? Yeah me either, but now you can get your hand son some DLC to possibly make at least the game a bit more fun to play. How can DLC save this game you may ask? Well it removes having to play with these futuristic robots born of CGI and go back to your childhood roots and use the original Autobots and Decepticons. Heck yeah! Just looking at the picture of Megatron makes me want to blow things up. You can also use a few of the other Generation One robots like: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream and Sunstorm. You will aslo get a chance to play with Soundwave, Sideswipe, Jazz and Jetfire and also get some new skins for Ratchet, Sideswipe and Bumblebee.

Here is a look at the new maps:

Courtyard: set in the U.S. east coast, pitting players directly in a central action area flanked by open skies and tall skyscrapers
Hillside: takes players to the urban backdrop of Cairo, where players will fight in the war-torn streets and alleyways of a ruined cityscape
Sandstorm: transports players to yet another section of Cairo, populated with low buildings and wide-open regions perfect for instantaneous, frenetic action

The DLC weighs in at $10 and quite honestly would not make me want to buy the game, but if I had the game I would heavily consider the content just to get the opportunity to use the Generation one robots. Pretty smart if you ask me, use people’s love of the old style robots to help milk some more cash out of their pockets, brilliant! Look for this DLC to drop for the PS3 and Xbox 360 this August 27th.

Will nostalgia get the best of you?
