But there’s nothing I find here to be epic, or even memorable, about this rail shooter.
That’s right, this game’s a rail shooter. You don’t get to explore anything; the game makers dictate where you go throughout the game. While you are following the set path, you engage in two distinct game modes.
The first one is a copy of the Time Crisis franchise where the player has to shoot several sets of certain number of opposing guys, but the player has the option of hiding behind cover to avoid taking fire. But in cover the player can’t take down the opposing guys, so there’s a risk/reward aspect.
Cybertron Adventures takes the idea of Time Crisis and adds a nice touch: the sniper rifle.
The other play mode is the driving/flying mode where the player has to guide the robot through an obstacle course and shoot debris and planes. It’s just okay.
But what are not okay are several problems this game has.
First, there’s the lack of content; there are eight small Autobot levels and eight small Descepticon levels - which most players will breeze through in about four to five hours. After that, all you can do is play those sixteen levels a second time in Story Mode or Challenge Mode.
Second, there’s no difference between any of the robots in the game. I was using the same tactic and weapons with Megatron as I was with Bumblebee - and all the other robots. Boring!
Third, the game dishes out points at the end of each level and gives a rank up to the player after gathering a set number of points. But there’s nothing to be gained with a rank up. I don’t get better guns, more health, or a better chance to score a critical hit.
This game is good as a distraction, but I wouldn't pay $50 of my hard earned money for Transformers: Cybertron Adventures. RENT IT.

First of all they changed the title from Transformers: war for cybertron to Transformers: cybertron adventures. Why the heck did they even do that. I was thinking that they typed it wrong. and this isn't what i`m mainly mad about.
they even changed how the game play was. i didn't even get to move around at all. i just got to shoot and drive. that really stinks!
but the worst part about all of this is that i didn't even get to make my own transformer. that is mostly why i got the game. this game made me so angry that i actually threw the game controller across the living room (I actually did). even if you watch the game trailer don't, i repeat don't get game. it might look cool but it isn't. the same thing happened when i got the transformers revenge of the fallen game for PS2. the trailer looked cool but the game was different in so many ways i don't know where to start. thank god i didn't buy the game.remember, DON'T BUY OR RENT THE GAME!!!!!!

The graphics are nice and I like how they tried to combine the looks of characters from their 80s original versions to the newer '00s movie versions. Still, the gameplay is so lame as for it not to be any fun.
Maybe it's better for the PS3 or XBox.
Worst controlls for a Wii game Ive ever played.

This isn't the same game as War for Cybertron. Instead of dumping a scaled down port to the Wii, Activision gave the Wii it's own version developed by "Next Level" The people behind Punch-Out.
Transformers: Cybertron Adventures tells the pre-exodus story of the Transformers. And they tell it very well in this game. Strong vocal performances all around, including Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime!
The game features a campaign for each faction, which is best played simultaneously(Autobots Level 1, then Deceptions Level 1, etc.), as opposed to beating one campaign then starting on the other. This is a great way to see the story as each side gives a different view of the events that had taken place during the level.
You can tell that a lot of care and polish was put into this game, as everything looks and sounds great. I didn't notice any bugs either. Its very clear that Next Level took their time on this.
The game play is sort of like a rail shooter, but is played completely from the third person perspective. The on-foot sections are very reminiscent of Time-Crisis, in that you have available cover to hide behind. There are also driving and flying sections. Each one as enjoyable as the next, and there is a two-player mode, where the second player acts as extra covering fire for player one. Which makes some of the time sensitive areas less hectic!
I played through on normal difficulty. The game is about medium length, if you play both campaigns, and even lasts longer if you replay the old levels for achievements, which are found in the game's challenge mode. The game has unlockables in the form of character artwork. Not that exciting really, but certainly not worth taking points off for!
I'll be buying this one.
