    This review is from: Transformers: Fall of Cybertron (Video Game)

    The sequel to High Moons awesome War for Cybertron is finally here. Yesterday (August 21st, 2012), I went to GameStop and got it. Mine was preordered, so that will explain the things that are included in this review that involve the G1 Retro Pack.

    Graphics- The graphics are prettier than War For Cybertron. Probably the best on a Transformers game.

    Gameplay- Like War For Cybertron, Fall Of Cybertron is a third-person shooter. You got weapons from WFC, like the Neutron Assault Rifle, and the Scatter Blaster, but also new ones like Riot Cannon (But its probably just the Fusion Cannon with a different name) and the Corrosive Slime Cannon (I think that’s what it’s called). At the campaign, you get the G1-esque weapons Throwback Cannon, and, my personal favorite weapon, the Slingshock. And for you guys that go, “But that’s only if you preordered!” I already discussed that in the beginning.

    Story- I don’t wanna spoil too much but here’s the basic plot- The Autobots, who are on the ark, are being attacked by the Cons. Bumblebee was sent to help Optimus, who was duking it out with Megatron. Then the game shows you what happened 6 (earth) days ago, on Cybertrons last days, all leading up to what happened on the first chapter. I hope that’s not too revealing.

    Multiplayer- Awesome multiplayer. You can customize your character in four different classes; Infiltrator (Scout), Destroyer (Leader), Titan (Soldier), and Scientist. Each class has thier own ability you can do by pressing RB (ei, Infiltators have Cloak, Scientists have Heal Beam, etc.) You also have items you can use by pressing X to equip them, and then using either the left side or the right side of the D-Pad to activate it.

    Other- Metroplex and Grimlock. Need I say more?

    Graphics- 8/10

    Gameplay- 8/10

    Story- 9/10

    Voice Acting- 10/10 (Peter Cullen and Gregg Berger FTW)

    OVERALL SCORE- 8.5/10

    EDIT (8/23/12:) Today I beat the campaign (on Normal) and now there are parts that I left out, once you beat the campaign, you get the weapons you won’t get in Multiplayer; Electro Bolter and the GG Cannon (GG is Glass Gas). Also, I forgot to mention Escalation, which is kinda like Firefight from Halo Reach. Yes, WFC has it too, for those who haven’t played that yet. There are , I think, five, no wait, four locations you can play in: Oblivion, Ancient, Downfall, and Ignition. And the last thing I forgot to mention was the lack of co-op campaign, which is unfortunate. Hence the score is now an 8.5.

    This review is from: Transformers: Fall of Cybertron (Video Game)

    When I was a kid, I watched the 80’s Transformers cartoon religiously. I spent countless hours with the Hasbro toys dreaming up epic robot battles, and even used scraps of trash and metal to create a pretend-Cybertron world. To this day, my faithful companions stand proudly on my work desk, reminding me of a time when big robots and explosions were the only thing I could think about. In a way, not much has changed. When Activision reintroduced the franchise to the gaming world with Transformers: War for Cybertron back in 2010, the sequel was the only thing on my mind.

    It’s one thing to pay homage to a beloved cartoon, another to tap into its origin story – these are dangerous waters when you’re dealing with diehard fans, but developer High Moon Studios managed to do the impossible. They created a back-story that fans of the original have joyfully embraced and made the Transformers’ universe feel fresh, relevant, and better than ever.

    The Good
    - Breathtaking graphics
    - Character specific abilities keep the gameplay diverse
    - Make your own Transformer
    - Dinobots

    The Bad
    - No more campaign co-op
    - Occasional texture pop in and technical hiccups
    - Shorter and easier than the predecessor
    - Disappointing end fight

    During the finals days on the Transformers’ dying planet Cybertron, the Autobots have built an Ark in hopes of reaching a new home beyond the stars. Shortly before crossing a portal, they’re attacked by the Decepticons in their warship Nemesis. A battle breaks out and Optimus Prime ends up on the receiving end of Megatron’s gun. In an attempt to save Prime’s life, Bumblebee plunges between them and takes the shot. We’re then taken back six days prior to the launch.

    If you’re unfamiliar with the predecessor, the game is best described as a Gears of War with robots – but it’s so much more. You can’t duck behind cover and constant movement is necessary to survive, but the third-person shooter principles are fundamentally the same. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron keeps the gameplay diverse by introducing character specific abilities. You’re playing a different Transformer in every chapter and new skills that change the way you traverse the levels keep the battles fresh and interesting. Autobot Jazz, for example, has a grappling hook that allows you to zip to high places. His levels offer more verticality and sniping opportunities. Cliffjumper’s stealth segments present slower pacing and exciting silent kills. You can even play as the colossal Bruticus who transforms from several smaller Combaticons.

    While all the different skills are fun to play with, the biggest and most exciting addition are the Dinobots. Taking control of Grimmlock for the first time in twenty years is invigorating. I still remember playing with the Dinobot as a kid, pretending to crush other toys with his tail and fiery breath and now I’m doing it with a controller in my hands. Awesome! Grimmlock can’t transform at will like the other robots. Battling opponents accumulates rage and he can change form temporarily. This brings a bit of strategy to combat, as you need to save your transformations for the most heated battles and deal with the rest using your powerful sword while in robot form. Unfortunately, Grimmlock is the only playable Dinobot in story mode. This is very unfortunate, because it essentially feels like the Dinobots were just tacked on – rather than being a significant part of the narrative. Nevertheless, the variety in the gameplay is really refreshing and the elasticity of the campaign is the game’s strongest point.

    The visuals in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron are superb. While the predecessor boasted incredibly detailed environments, they were repetitive and monotonous. Fall of Cybertron is a graphical masterpiece. Cybertron breathes with its moving machinery and feels surprisingly organic. The Transformers’ home planet feels like a place with history and I commend the team for pushing the console to its max. The frame rate is fairly steady, with only minor dips during extremely hectic battles, but texture pop-in prevails throughout. It’s not game breaking by any means, but it happens often enough to be noticeable and occasionally distracting.

    There’s more variety in the environments and you no longer feel like you’re running down the same corridors. The scenery changes with each battle and the Dinobot chapters have a mechanical-jungle vibe to them. The lighting has improved dramatically and adds a deeper, more realistic sense of atmosphere. Of course, the real stars are the Transformers and they look spectacular. Each robot is enveloped in meticulous detail that’s constantly in motion. They animate flawlessly and you never feel like you’re controlling the same machine.

    Cybertron is a war torn planet and the deep, throttling explosions follow…
