The original Transformers suffered from a lack of polish, but we have high hopes for the sequel. Revenge of the Fallen has been developed by Luxoflux, the very capable developers of last year's solid Kung-Fu Panda, so we expect them to make a worthy action title. The movie, set to release next week alongside the game, is destined to rake in the bucks, but Activision needs Luxoflux to come through on the interactive side. Here's a great inside look at the game thanks to an interview with the producer and art director; the highlights look quite promising! With inFamous out of the way and Prototype failing to live up to expectations (in our eyes), perhaps Revenge of the Fallen will fit the bill.
