    I had mixed feelings about this game before its release, but after doing some research I realised that this game is different from the previous Transformers games based on the movie…which is a good thing. Fans of Gears of War will really love this game. For hardcore shooter fans, some things may or may not disappoint you. Fans of the animated series will fall in love! It plays out a lot like a CG cartoon…sound quality is very good with the voiceovers being very good drawing you in even more. The graphics look like someone took Gears of War and replaced the COG and the Horde with the Autobots and Decepticons. I know, I know, the Unreal Engine has been done a million times, it does WFC a lot of good though. Although I mentioned Gears of War, keep in mind that there is no duck and cover system. At first, this sort of disappointed me in a way, but after playing it, I realized…..robots don’t need cover!!! The game controls like a charm, but takes some getting used to as well. Another thing is, unfortunately sometimes (depending on how you have your controller layout) you will accidently transform when you didn’t intend to do so. This can be a problem…especially when trying to navigate platforming sections. Transforming in mid-air not only looks cool, but it also can be used for strategy purposes as well. It is highly recommended that you play the Decepticons campaign first. You can however choose to play the Autobots campaign first if you like. I have not played the multiplayer yet nor have I tried the 3 player co-op so I will not comment on the MP aspect of the game in this review. This game is very fast paced with a ton of action in it so far. Again, if you are a fan of Transformers, this is the game to have..I am not sure how long the single player campaign is, but it seems to be pretty long. Most may want to wait till the price drops, but if you are really thinking of getting the game, do yourself a favor and pick it up. This review is based on the PS3 version of the game. I hope this was helpful to you.

    War For Cybertron. Well what can I say about this except, this game totally blew me away. I’m going to start with the Campaign Mode this offers two unique stories and levels. I like Decepticon side because, I like being the bad guy trying to takeover, or you can be the usual good guy (Autobots) trying to save everything. But you don’t have to be good or bad on your own, you can team up with 2 friends online and be good or bad together and destroy some really cool bosses. It takes place on their home planet Cybertron (a stunning mechanical-futuristic place) of course and the best part about it you’re no longer big bulky semi-trucks, camaros and normal earth vehicles Autos and Decepts are Cybertronian vehicles which are the same as earth’s except they look way better, cooler, meaner and tougher. Now for the best part of the game Multi-Player, this offers a variety of modes Escalation- constant groups of robots attack until the players are defeated, Free-for-All- is every man for himself, and my favorite Deathmatch-is just like with other shooters two teams go head-to-head to get the most kills. The others are Power Struggle, Code of Power, Countdown to Extinction and Conquest, I won’t spoil these for you but I think you’ll enjoy them. The character customizing is absolutely awesome, players must make their own Transformer based on the 4 classes, which determines their vehicle form Scout (car), Scientist (jet), Leader (truck), and Soldier (tank) each vehicle functions the same except Scientists can fly. Each allows you two weapons, two abilities, and three upgrades each class has their own set of kill streak rewards, available weapons, and abilities and last but not least you choose the color scheme of your robot. Now for my review GAMEPLAY 5stars controls are great, very engaging and fast paced not for casual gamers, STORYLINE 5stars finally we get the Autos and Decepts history, GRAPHICS 5stars it sounds and looks great, MULTIPLAYER 5stars. Transformers: War for Cybertron 5stars it’s absolute genius.

    I read tons of reviews on this game before I got it. It seemed that in general most people said that it’s an okay game but it’s not the best ever. They then list reasons that it wasn’t good. I just would like to say this game is awesome! It’s too bad that it has such terrible reviews from everyone. If you like the 3rd persons shooter game type then this is a game for you. The multi-player is cool. There has been a lot of complaining about the levels being all the same but obviously that is just people complaining. The ability to transform adds an awesome touch to the multi-player. I always hate in game when I re-spawn and then I have to walk for 30 seconds to find anyone else. Well in this one if you are far away you can just transform into a vehicle and go and find some people. If your in danger you can transform and quickly flee the area. It adds a spin on the gameplay that other game has. I would also like to mention that the melee combat on this game is awesome. For all of you shooter game fans out there you all know that the melee can sometimes be lame in the games. But Imagine being a freaking transformer and swinging a death hammer at somebody. Or spinning in circles with and ax. It is an awesome game overall. I am not sure why people don’t like it. I don’t think that they have actually played it.
    One thing that I have to agree on that is a little bit negative is that you definitely find yourself with a huge lack of ammo. So you have to use your melee attack a ton but it’s pretty sweet too. If you are interested in buying this game I would definitely recomend it. It’s not the best game ever but this is a good game.

    This review is from: Transformers the Game (Video Game)

    As with most movie based video game tie-in’s and licensed games, Transformers looks great at first but quickly degenerates into monotony. Based on the mega budget, live action film adaptation directed by Michael Bay and featuring Hasbro’s long running line of toys, Transformers allows you to play as either the heroic Autobots or the evil Decepticons, as the civil war between the two giant robotic races comes to Earth. The first thing you’ll notice is that the Transformers themselves are very well detailed and animated, which helps take away from noticing how bland the backgrounds and areas are. For a late in life PS2 game, the game features some great robot animations that make it worth checking out alone for longtime Transformers fans. After that though, things kind of go downhill. Even if you play both the Autobot and Decepticon modes, you’ll find the game as a whole is incredibly short. Not to mention that when playing as one of the Transformers that can transform into a car, driving controls are quite sticky. The biggest flaw of Transformers though comes from the fact that the overall game just gets boring way too quickly for it’s own good. The missions are basically all the same thing, and even though the Decepticons have a mission that involves just blowing stuff up, it’s not enough to save the game from movie tie-in mediocrity. Combine this with the schizoid camera angles and you get the overall picture. Negatives aside, Transformers does offer some positives. For starters, there is some great voice acting to be heard thanks to featuring the voices of the original cartoon’s Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen, who also voices Prime in the film) and Megatron (Frank Welker, replaced by Hugo Weaving for the film), along with the film’s star Shia LaBeouf as well. All in all, if you are a Transformers fan, young or old, the Transformers game is worth checking out, but it goes without saying not to expect anything remotely great out of it.

    This review is from: Transformers the Game (Video Game)

    The graphics for the game are wonderful. The environments are completely destructible. The transformations from robots to vehicles are everything a fanboy could hope for. Walking around as a decepticon, blasting everything away in the freeplay mode is a lot of fun. Still, much of the fun comes from your own creation and not from the gameplay.

    That said, the gameplay is awful. If you hate timed missions, skip the Autobot section: their missions are essentially go here and do this in x amount of time. Worse still, the driving controls are sluggish and cause frequent mission screwups. The camera is also frustrating. At least half of the hits I landed on the enemies were from blind flailing. Enemies are repetitive for both factions. One thing that really annoyed me was that the game provides characters with awesome firepower, yet at least 90% of the enemies have shields that render the firepower useless. The game also does not allow you to choose between robots.

    I really wish they would have spent more time with the game. The level design and look of the characters is done very well. The characters just need a better camera, better controls, and more to do than they’ve been given here. I hope the makers of the game do another one because I’d be really interested to play one that they did well and without the pressure of a movie release date or tie-in.

    Rent this to get it over with. Sigh in frustration. And then go and track down the earlier Atari Transformers game instead.

    This review is from: Transformers the Game (Video Game)

    Since both are from activision, you can’t ask too much of a game, but it has the same feeling as playing spiderman, only you don’t have to make and repeat stupid tasks. Vehicle mode is like ALL vehicle games, nasty and supersensible control, like Bond from EA imposible to control the car.
    If you are not a gamer and don’t play games for a living, you’ll find it entertaining. Graphic are better than at least Spidey 2, Game it gets boring if you are seating for 5 hours playing, not if you play a mission or 2 daily. I gave it 4 stars, just because its an activision game, you know you can get something better from EA or Konami.
