With the Multiplayer Servers down, single player seems like the only reason to get this game. Getting the DLCs seems kinda pointless (Unless you want to get the G2 Bruticus and G1 Optimus skins) seeing as how the Multiplayer Servers are down. Basically rendering HALF of the achievements null. PLayed War For Cybertron, while it lacks DLC and such, at least Multiplayer is available.

I really like this game.........although you can't play multiplayer anymore which is dissapointing but if you get this with the Massive Fury Pack, you'll be able to play as G1 Optimus and G2 Bruticus in campaign, that's a plus.

I just hope Merc Tech can fix the multiplayer so we new-comers can ROLL OUT!!!

"Multiplayer Servers offline"
Does NOT have Co-Op as advertised on this page. All multiplayer is permanently offline and after research I found out that it doesn't have campaign Co-Op at all. They have survival mode but that is permanently disabled as well. Steam did not refund my purchase.

This game has to be compared with its predecessor War for Cybertron and that is one my favourite games ever. It’s done by the same devs (High Moon Studio) but PC porting was actually done by Mercenary Technology. I would really wholeheartedly recommend this game if it existed in vacuum but it doesn’t.

If War for Cybertron could pass as G1 intro (even with some big inconsistencies, but to be honest G1 contradicts itself), Fall of Cybertron is a clear tribute to G1. It just deviates too much – in nuttshell, it’s The Movie (1986) mixed with the first episode of Season 1 which is fine as tribute but story is a huge mess. Dinobots and Insecticons on Cybertron in their earthly alternate forms don’t have any sense. For the full mess they should just added Constructicons, too.

Every pro and con is compared to WfC.

Pros
- much better graphics
- fluid 60 fps
- Autobot and Decepticon campaign is not carbon copy of each other
- huge variety of weapons and equipment
- upgrades for weapons and characters
- Combaticons and Dinobots
- Bruticus rampage
- absolutely fantastic OST
- Steam Achievements

Cons
- worse graphical design - dark theme changed to "yellow is everywhere"
- absolutely dreadful checkpoint system
- mostly boring and illogical story even is heavely G1 influenced -->
- with too many QTEs
- you can’t choose your starting TF -->
- so almost all missions are soloing
- most weapons are useless
- no double jump
- Bumblebee lost voice (f.cking Bayformers b.llsh.t)
- even Optimus Prime and Megatron die too fast -->
- so melee is almost useless (I used a lot of melee in WfC)
- difficulty is very badly designed (it’s either joke or you die "100" times in a row and all in the same mission)
- for some reason there are only four Dinobots in campaign yet in credits there are five
- MP is cheaters’ paradise (don’t bother)

Conclusion: by on 75% off sale but only if you are die hard TF fan or you like cinematic experience.

Anyway, thank you Activision for publishing two good TF games. Licenced games done right.

Date I bought this game: 7.9.2012
Worths the price? (at the moment): No, definitely. Buy it on sales or, recommended, wait until Activision repairs or remasters ALL of it. Read the Cons below why.
Time played: 1.000+ hours
Score given: 7 out of 10.

Pros:
. • Multi-platform (available for PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and soon being remastered for next-gens, PS4 and Xbox One)
. • Amazing Campaign with unique story and nice items
. • Escalation mode (survival) is present
. • Multiple Game Modes available in Multiplayer (too bad that only Team Deathmatch is the main mode and the single one played)
. • A lot of possibilities to costumize your Characters In Multiplayer
. • Modern Graphical Engine
. • Good matchmaking (both Regional and Worldwide) that creates a team by players' leaderboard stats and not randomly.
. • Achievements

Neutral:
. • Partial support for Xbox Gamepads.
. • Ported game.
. • No in-game chat.
. • No in-game microphone support. (feature only for its console version)
. • No Steam drops while playing.
. • Doesn't work with on-board GPUs.

Cons:
. • No support / no updates.
. • No anti-cheat system integrated.
. • Instable Online servers. New comers cannot play Online.
. • Host Migration resulted in a 'kick with a reason' which may take a lot of time, unlike T:WFC where it simply kicks you in Party Lobby. *
. • In-game Friends List bug where you can't see all the friends, and can be solved only if you have less than 100 friends on Steam.
. • Capped at 30FPS. *
. • No support for other gamepads than Xbox 360 ones.
. • Not all user configurations available, many of them are missing. *
. • Kids with costumizable mods and hacks in Multiplayer.
. • No Co-op (Cooperative) mode available.
. • Tweaks and Glitches. Also the game can be easily decoded. It is encrypted in a Low level of Security programming language that is Endianness.
. • Still overpriced. Game being as this, must be under 30 bucks in my opinion.

* = it may be solved by modding. Game can be uncapped from 30FPS to any value manually. Host Migrator can be deleted from the game. And All graphical configurations can be modified from Low to something Higher. This game is set to use a poor set-up and it can be boosted up. Contact me if you want these changed.

I want a refund! I bought this game thinking I would be able to play multiplayer and escalation. But the servers have been taken down and there's no way to play either of them. I don't think I got my money's worth.

Better then its predescesor, but the multiplayer is dead. Worth it for the campaign, though. Get it on sale when you can.

The absolute best cinematic transformers experience to come to any platform in this day and age.

The story is superb with amazing voice acting for all of your favorite transformers. The in game models from the older transformers universe have been retained (NOT MICHAEL BAYS NEW AGE CRAP). The graphics are top notch and synergize perfectly with the transformer universe.

The combat is absolutely stellar, mostly involving using the same attacks over and over again but to keep things fresh I must emphasize the ability to seamlessly shift in and out of vehicle mode. I used this CONSTANTLY to both lay down fire and simeltaenously reload weapons from other forms. The animations for transforming are absolutely FLAWLESS. The movment is fantastic, with double jump incorporated with most transformers (except the flying ones I believe, but you can actually shift to vehicle mode and fly if you are mid fall which is awesome as well). All of this put together makes playing every single transformer an absolute blast.

In addition to this you also get amazing fan service in the form of dialog between the transformers. This world has never felt more alive and vibrant, the characters have never been more believable.

DINOBOTS. NEED I SAY MORE? YOU GET TO PLAY AS FREAKING GRIMLOCK!

The entire game was a thrill ride from start to finish. Where Transformers War for Cybertron felt like it moved at a snails pace at times, attempting to flesh out characters and places in the universe while stumbling over itself, Fall of Cybertron (this game) draws upon that old familiar feeling with a more linear level design that allows for intuitive combat and a incredibly smooth flowing game. It also is considered canon in that the story line fleshes out why the transformers had to leave their world.

I have to point out that I loved the first few Michael Bay transformer films, but the depiction of Cybertron in his movie was an absolute laughable disgrace and an insult to the creators of the universe. This game shows the culmination of everything the transformers had built in all of its glory, as well as its inevitable fall at the hands of Megatron.

And if you are like me the nostalgia of seeing the transformers in action is absolutely euphoric.

What are you waiting for? BUY THIS GAME.
