A very, very underappreciated game in the Transformer's genre. For the most part you will be playing it as a very diverse third-person shooter, but it has some really great setpiece level designs you will play over and over without them getting old - case in point, the omni-popular Grimlock level, where you literally play as a giant robot that turns into a fire-breathing dinosaur, destroying giant robot cockroaches and a space portal to Earth on your way to Robot Heaven.

None of that is an exaggeration.

If you don't know the difference between a Unicorn and Unicron, then this isn't the game for you, but if you do know the difference then this is a MUST buy. From a gameplay standpoint it is repetetive and I'll gladly put that down as a pitfall of the game, however the whole point of the game is to be one gigantic fan service that serves as a spiritual prequal to the Generation 1 Transformers series.

If you are a fan of the old transformers this game will have you drooling with fan service at least once in every mission, all the way from the huge cityboys of Metroplex all the way down to being full of Cesium Salami, or was it beryllium baloney? However the biggest fan service is in the ending credits, which I won't spoil because it makes finishing the game entirely worth it!

Transformers foc (fall of cybertron) is fun and a great game the graphics on max are excellent and the chapters are easy with great transition from war for cybertron to fall of cybertron


BUT


in MULTIPLAYER people ruin it by hacking or cheating to improve their rank on the leaderboards the in team deathmatch you dont have to cheat to win and i can prove this by observation no mods no cheats and no hacks that is a fair match ............not all of them are cheaters in the game but about 5% on average



*******************************************NEW PEOPLE TO FOC READ THIS****************************************************

if you are 1 getting killed every second 2 feeling over powered (in game) or just need extra fire power message me to join you AND TOGETHER WE CAN BAND TOGETHER AND END CHEATING AND HACKING






be a fair sport and dont use any forms of hacking, hard work pays off..................so what are you waiting cybertron is under attack ....join the game and me TheGoldenSpark

“More Than Meets The Eye”

Set amongst the burning ruins of a dying planet, ‘Transformers: Fall of Cybertron’ is an exhilarating, at times truly spectacular, Third-Person Action RPG - and is very simply, the single best gaming interpretation of the iconic Transformers franchise.

Campaign: Released in 2012 by High Moon Studios | Activision, ‘T:FOC’ is the second entry in the Transformers trilogy and is clearly the series’ high water mark - The opening credits thrust you into the midst of a massive space battle over the destroyed planet of Cybertron, besieged by Decepticon Battle-Cruisers, and front row to the ultimate stand-off between Decepticon supremo, Megatron, and Autobot leader, Optimus Prime. The game then flashes-back 6 days, and drops you in to play through the final few days of the conflict and events leading up to that historic last stand. An engaging story-fueled campaign takes you across a lovingly-crafted, richly atmospheric Transformers universe, putting you in control of popular characters (from both Autobot and Decepticon factions) such as Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Bumblebee, Cliff-Jumper, Jazz, Grimlock and more.

Gameplay | Graphics | Sound: From a technical standpoint, gameplay is a pretty standard Third Person RPG | Shooter | Racer (for the Transformation bits). While there is nothing groundbreaking here, there are several elements that do elevate this title – 1. Unlike other RPG’s where you control one main character throughout, here each of the campaign’s 13 chapters is framed through the viewpoint of a different Transformer allowing the gamer to control many beloved characters each with their own weapon systems, unique transformation, special abilities etc, providing some great overall variety - 2. The game’s pacing is also well constructed with third-person Shooting sections broken up through Stealth, Platforming and Vehicular missions, and intermittent set piece elements that are truly epic in both size and scale. – and finally, 3. A good number of collectibles, upgradable weapons, multiple endings and ultimately, the sheer glee of controlling some legendary characters builds great replayability into this title. Sound Design is also particularly noteworthy, with a grand operatic score accompanied by voice-actors from the original TV-series reprising key roles as Optimus and Megatron. Great graphics, well optimized K&M controls, an ‘Escalation | Survival’ mode, and a highly customizable Multiplayer experience round out a well polished title.

Flaws: For all it does well however, one cannot escape the glaring fact that gameplay is rather restrictively linear. Further, an uneven Multiplayer experience (of dropped connections, hacks and exploits, exclusion of the popular Co-op option) in addition to an unseemingly high pricetag of $60 for a 3-yr old title (Note: Steam Sale Price at $15), mar the overall package.

Overall, ‘Transformers: Fall of Cybertron’ is a fantastic interpretation of a beloved franchise – and although a pretty average RPG on a technical level - its grand cinematic campaign, breathtaking scale, phenomenal sound design, cast of iconic characters and high replayability, elevate the game to something more than the sum of its parts. This is an ode to the Transformers universe made by fans, for fans – and this is as close to ‘Prime’ as you will ever get – Highly Recommended! (Rated 9/10)

I'm a Transformers fantatic! I was raised with Transformers! I lived Transformers! And I would deffinitely dress up as an adult Optimus Prime for Halloween. All the same my verdict of this game was very positive and enjoyable. The game has pretty well cut graphics. There are no micro stuttering, and it's pretty well polished. Game content is solid, and entertaining and certainly holds up to the Transformers lore fairly well. The game does feel a bit limited at times. I had the urge to go through levels in a free play mode, but none existed. I would love to tumble through any level with any character.

Multiplayer is fairly straightforward on the game, and very entertaining. Found it pretty decent for the incoming expectations of the game. All the same I would play the multiplayer again. There wasn't a lot of connection issues while trying to get onto the online server for multiplay.

All together it's a pretty decent game that seemed to be well played out. I think it's fairly enjoyable and worth buying. I couldn't determine a good reason not to get the game.

Out of the three currently available Tranformers games for PC on steam, this is your best bet. with steam intergration in
multiplayer modes and friends list, many steam groups dedicated to the game, and probably the most played out of the three, the game is the best of all of them. the campaign may seem confusing a some stages (what the hell happened to starscream?!) it may not meet aprovale to some players, but you don't have to play it. it has nothing to do with the multiplayer (apart from a few maps might resemble parts of the campaign) and you unlock the parts for customisation through earning in-game money for the multiplayer. the customisation is my favourite part (CTF... is underplayed) as you can change every part of your character, with 3 characters for each class! and another feature: full controler suport!

I deffinatly reccomend this game, for the multiplayer, as it is the most player out of the three.
If you want a campaign experience, then I'd say go for War for cybertron

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is an amazing game with many new features that were not in the previous game. The graphics were excellent, gameplay has vastly improved and the storyline is new and interesting. However, my only con would be the character choice on Escalation (in war for cybertron you could play any character, in this 4 are set). Maybe in the next game they might change this to make gameplay a bit more... 'independent' you could say. A brilliant game nonetheless.

It's a great game, contuning from War For Cybertron, until they leave Cybertron. Its mulitplayer is fun, with creative characters. It still sucks that there are still 4 classes, buti don't think thats a problem with the amount of customization available. I don't play competive, but i still find myself comine back to play this over and over again.

Outstanding game! Graphics, cutscenes, mechanics, atmosphere are perfect. Through every minute of it I was entralled as it captured my emotions, to the epic excitments of mowing down Decepticons/Autobots to the Sacrifices that some characters made. I'd recomend before playing this play "War for Cybertron". It explains all of the backstory and so on.

99/5!!!!

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is the sequel to Transformers: War for Cybertron. Taking place on the same planet, the Autobots battle the Decepticons as they try to leave their world, before it dies with them. You start out as Bumblebee, the young iconic Autobot scout, when Megatron attacks the fleeing Ark. This is not the beginning of the game, well, the beginning level, but takes place five days after the second chapter. You'll have to see the rest.

Pros:
+ A WONDERFUL CAMPAIGN! This story improves upon WFC a lot
+ Gorgeous graphics
+ Fantastic graphics
+ Good characters
+ No more 30 fps cap
+ Amazing transformations
+ DLC does not split the community in the middle
+ Your own character for multiplayer

Cons:
- You cannot change the controls
- A lot of hackers in multi. I suggest playing regional matchmaking
- So many op weapons. For example, the ♥♥♥♥ing Subsonic Repeater.
- The devs do not care about the game. We were given reskin DLC, colors removed, and they left us.
- No cheating prevention system
- No way to communicate with teammates in Escalation/Multiplayer. It's ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and lazy.
- THE DESTROYER IS TERRIBLE! Only heavy weapons? No hitscan weapons? ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!

Final verdict:
8/10
As it does improve upon WFC, it's the multiplayer that drags the score down to the same score as WFC. Singleplayer is a huge improvement from WFC, while multi is a large downgrade

Some points that you should buy this game.

1) As I've already played WFC but FoC story is very good in comparison.
2) Multiplayer is very good it has 4 different modes.
3) Creating a transformers is tottaly awesome which makes Fall of Cybertron's Multiplayer is very good.
4) It has many good maps in multiplayer.
5) Escalation Mode is very good you must try it.

Fall of Cybertron looks amazing and is full of homages to G1. As a Transformers fan, this game was consistently entertaining and by far the better of the two games in the series.

I think I just found my new favourite 3rd-person action/shooter game. Seriously. This game is awesome. I can't say enough good stuff about it. The campaign is a solid ~10 hr's worth of gameplay, and it hits the ground running and doesn't stop right up until the credits. It's chaotic. It's hilarious. It's epic. It's everything that a Transformers fan would want in a game. If you're even slightly interested in this type of game, check out TotalBiscuit's review on it (Youtube: "WTF Is... - Transformers: Fall of Cybertron ?") and you will most certainly be convinced that it's worth every penny. Get it. Now.

I may have had low expectations, but damn, this game is actually really, really fun and well made. If you liked Transformers as a kid, and enjoy the playstyle of gears of war, you'll love this. Pick it up on a sale and enjoy! I can't recommend it (at the right price) enough!

I can recommend this game to any Transformers fan. It is story-driven game, but the story is better than any Michael Bay's scrap and on the same level as Transformers: Prime tv show (just a little bit darker). It's more like revamped classic Transformers from 80's. The design of transformers is high and resembles G1 design. Voice over is just 10/10.
There are tons of fun in multiplayer. You can create your own Autobot or Decepticon from available parts. Unfortunately you can't pick a side in multiplayer, the game does that for you to balance teams. Sometimes it chooses Autobot side which is so beneath me and defies my logic. Though when you host Escalation mode you can pick a side. In this mode you can choose any iconic transformer like Lord Megatron himself.
If you are only after the story, you can just watch walkthrough on youtube as the story is pretty much linear and you literally watch it like a movie. But if you want to play multiplayer, it's by far the best Transformers multiplayer experience out there.
You wanna know why I like this game? There are no f***ing humans, just my favorite Decepticons and those pathetic Autobots.
7/10
