click above image to view more screenshots of Transformers: the Game

As excited as we are to watch Michael Bay's vision come to fruitiion on the celulloid big screen this summer, we're even more excited about the accompanying Transformers video game that will likely be released on many next-gen gaming consoles. After all, we grew up playing with Transformers toys (the metal ones!), and in this digital age we're more interested in controlling our robots in disguise than watching them dance around on screen.

From what we know, you'll be able to play the Transformers Game as either an Autobot defending the Earth or a Decepticon trying to detroy it. It would seem, then, that game features two campaigns, although we're hoping for a nice online multiplayer function, as well.

We have some screenshots of the game, but you're going to want to watch the game's trailer after the jump. If you've been waiting to see Optimus Prime fly off a building and transform midair, your wait is over.

      The Autobots were whiny? OK, yes, Bumblebee was a wussy little package of suckiness, but Starscream was the whining king (queen?). Couldn't get through a single episode without him claiming how smart he was and then screwing everything up and running like a bitch when Megatron got his angry face on.

      Looks like Dragon Ball Z with GTA graphics. Great.

      Most movie games suck and considering that the source is a Michael Bay film...Well The Suck factor gotta be at lease as high as Prime's eye.

      In the beginning I tried to have an open mind about this film but between the images I've seen, and the rampant product placement (Optimus Prime as a transforming Nike sneaker) I'm done.

      Bring on Spider-man 3!

      That's buckets full of awesome. Between Forza 2 and this, I may have to break down and buy myself and Xbox 360.

      Thanks for using the IGN embed instead of the ripped and uber-compressed flash on Jalopnik :)

      I know everyone loves Optimus and the Autobots but I have to say, I was a Decepticon fan. I was disappointed every time they lost in the end. I just thought the Autobots were kinda soft and whiney.

      It probably helped that the only Transformer toys I had were Megatron (double duty when we played cops and robbers) and the Constructicons (ie Devastator).

      I don't play video games but would consider it for this game.
