To Heck with Bay, Hail High Moon Studios!

Ladies and gentlemen, what we have here is the greatest iteration of the Transformers franchise made yet; a game created with so much fandom, understanding and respect from the developers at High Moon Studios that brings to light everything in the Transformers universe that Michael Bay perversely destroyed in his movies.
Pay heed that this game is a sequel to "War for Cybertron," so many references may go over newcomers' heads. However, the story is treated very well and delicately as the player switches perspectives between the Autobots and Decepticons, trying to get off their now dead planet of Cybertron and their ongoing struggle to make sure the other side doesn't escape.
Throughout the storyline you'll find characters and robots that have been otherwise ignored in the past decade, from the Conbaticons to the Dinobots and Insecticons (though the beast transformers have yet to appear). The superstar voice acting cast their roles in glorious tribute as the original voices of Optimus Prime and Megatron return to add to the awesomeness.
Control and combat are handled extremely well as far as a third person shooter/driving/flying game is concerned; transfering action from transforming out of vehicle mode to fire off different weapons and vice-versa is extremely fluid and adds a touch of cinematic badassery. Throughout the game, you'll be switching controls between characters and playstyles rather quickly and abruptly, but the separate controls and powers for each robot is easy to get a quick handle on.
The online multiplayer can get rather enjoyable if you figure out a specific strategy for yourself. Between 4 customizable characters/classes you'll soon learn that switching between robot and vehicle mode will be key in surviving or beating down the onslaught of opponents. Your skills at Call of Duty are not going to help you in this fast-paced madness.
And wrap all of that up with the best possible ending for the credits and you have the quinessential Transform

Playing this game is great, but doing it in 3D is an adventure everyone has to try. Furtunate for me I have a Panasonic Vierra that can turn 2D into 3D. Words cant even describe how incrediable it is.
