A very good video game representation of the G1 Transformers. The single player campaign has a strong plot which plays out a bitter war between the Autobots and Decepticons during the final moments of the planet Cybertron.

Game primarily playes like a 3rd person corridor shooter. Game was executed very well so the weapon and movement controls feel really good. Animations were well done and the robot to vehicle transitions look really good. The single player campaign will take roughly 10 hours or so on regular difficulty and consists of 15 chapters. The player does not get to choose which Transformer character they play through the game with the campaign regularly featuring a different character between chapters. Characters will switch between Autobot and Decepticon depending on which part of the story the player is currently playing and the game appears to feature equal time between the two factions. Difficulty on normal settings was neither too easy or difficult, but there were times that were a good challenge. Fortunately the checkpoint system was done well enough that you will not have to redo too much after defeats.

Many of the fan favorite characters are featured as playable or ally, and the inclusion of others like Metroplex, the Combaticons, Insecticons and the Dinobots were very welcome. Both the voice acting and the soundtrack were extremely well done. This helped create a good feeling of chemistry between the characters and sets the tone of the game.

The game does have a multiplayer feature which I have tried only briefly. It is cool to create a customized Transformer to do battle against or with other players. I understand that cheating does happen quite regularly but I am hopeful that this will not hurt the experience too badly. I will review this feature further as I play it more.

I had a lot of fun with this game and highly recommend it to those who are G1 Transformer fans.

I'm not a very big Transformers fan, but bought the game anyway due to good reviews. I'm glad I did. Graphics are great, storyline continuously develops and the combat styles change as you play different characters. All of this combined made for a great game overall.

Another one of my favorite games. The soundtrack is off the hook, epic moments, robots, robot dinoaurs, robot swords, fire-breathing robot dinosaurs, G1 Optimus Prime (Curse you DLC), Optimus Prime being himself (that is a badass( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEbKgIbycl4 (And this time, without Hot Rod screwing everyone over!))), and more! So, if you're a fan of transformers or just want a good game, I reccomend this title for your library.

"Nooo! I will not be denied!" shouts Megatron as he sucked into the wormhole that will transport him and his nemesis, Optimus Prime, to Earth. Meanwhile I am laughing my ♥♥♥ off thanks to the excellent and wonderful delivery of the line.

Fall of Cybertron is a cartoon game at heart. Despite all its masked brutality and complicated linguo, it still is just a series of escapades, played out by rightly coloured robots that can transform into a variety of vehicles. And this is fine. Because, saturday morning Transformers are the transformers we have come to love. Fall of Cybertron then is a modern take on the cartoon; a streamlined version of it, that does away with the thick layer of moral correctness and exchanges it for witty humour and flashy action. Perfect for the crowd of today.

However, this is not a cartoon. This is a game. A short game, I will admit, but a fun one. Fall of Cybertron is fast and varied. It is a third-persoon shooter with vehicle elements. It is a mix of speed and finesse that is fun to play and to watch. The campaign puts you in the armour of a different Transformer in every stage, while the mulitplayer mode allows you to build your own and take the fight to those pesky autobots or decepticons. The story mode is about 10 stages long and chronicles the final days of Cybertron. For those of you who are unfamilliar with Transformers lore, here is the synopsis: Cybertron is out of power and the decepticons still want more. When they hear the Autobots are preparing to leave the planet they attack to steal all their fuel so they can advance their goals of galactic conquest. Everything is delivered by a top-of-the-bill voicecast that holds nothing back to create a genuine Transformers experience.

The game does know a few shortcomings however. It is short. The campaign won't take much effort for a seasoned gamer and the split between vehicle and robot is a bit arbitrary at times. It comes down to preference in what mode you'd prefer to play, but some stages can be blitzed with little to no effort if you just tote the main gun from your Tank transformation. Multiplayer suffers from its regular slow-start hiccups. Everyone is level 40 and has planet destroyers while you try to make due with your slingshot and balloon shield. It is a hurdle, and since the rewards are always less appetising than the stuff you can unlock through purchacing DLC you might end up wondering if it is actually worth the time investment.

I would sign off with a "Transform and Roll Out!" joke, but since this game doesn't have any real cars (they're all hovermobiles) it would seem out of place. So I return to my first sentence: "I will not be denied!" If this game comes up in a sale, shell some cash, and play some of this sweet robot action.
