Transformers Goes Back To Its Roots

Transformers Fall Of Cybertron may actually be the best Transformers game ever. The sequel to War on Cybertron, this Transformers game follows the first with more action, a better plot, and greater gameplay.

Now everyone may actually dispute the lack of co-op in the campaign mode, it may have been the best decision may by High Moon Studios. It allowed the story to play a much greater part in the game. Characterization was much better in this game than its predecessor. While in that game, there were three characters a stage. For the most part in this one, it is one character and they shine based on the level being designed around their secondary ability for the most part. That allows the characters to have depth, rather than running around like Terminators destroying other robots.

The gameplay is action-packed with very dull moments. It is a war out there in this game, and the action hardly ever lets us. What I found interesting is that the game was not easy by any means. The AI is not fodder for Optimus Prime or Megatron, they are real challenges. The graphics are great, but I would compliment the art design. There were parts in the game that I felt like I was watching the older '80s version of Transformers. It had classic G1 Transformers all the way through it, including lines from the 1986 Transformers: The Movie.

I cannot say anything bad about this game. The only reason why I took away one point was because the length of the game is only several hours. It is not long at all, only 12 chapters. But add multiplayer with that, and the game has a ton of lasting appeal. I recommend this game to any Transformers fan, and even those who may be looking for a good third-person shooter. High Moon Studios did a great job with this one.

I can say that the story in this game had me going until 2:30 the other morning. The story was very well written and reminded me of a good book or movie. I always wanted to find out what was going to happen next.

The variety of game play keeps you wanting to play because it isn't the same old shoot and cover system. It actually changes with the character/level you play.

You can actually play the multi player without paying for some special code. So with a rental you can play the entire game. The online mode is fun, don't get frustrated if you are getting killed a lot at first. Once you level up a bit the game is very fun.

If you are a Transformers fan this is a must play game. I would also read a book called Transformers: Exodus. It sets up this game very well.

This game is awesome , great game engine, great storyline and voice over acting.

The multiplayer is a great improvement on the 1st game, more game modes, and surprisingly no online pass required

Definitely worth a rent and to buy if you are a fan of the first game
