the game takes place before any of the cartoons and movies (not sure if it takes place in the 80s version or animated which is a decent 80s remake btw animated is the best current transformers cartoon)

this is how the conflict begins
the begining of the megatron starscream relationship and the optimus bumble bee relationship
has omega supreme and the decepticon equiv (tidel wave i think not sure since i started this love with beast wars)

looks to be as good as the armada game if not better
