I would have liked to recommend this game, but all you can look forward to is the singleplayer campaign.
Please read my full review and consider also rating this game as not recommended.

Almost no players still play the multiplayer modes ("Multiplayer" and "Escelation"). And the only "Multiplayer" mode that people still play is Team Deathmatch (your team has to get 40 kills to win).

Why does nobody want to play anymore you ask? The awnser is simple: HACKERS.

There are 2 awesome guides that might help you to deal with hackers:
1. Hackers and You. By Anti_Sphere
2. Hackers: How to deal with them, or not

Some players in TFoC that I think could be hackers, but I might be wrong about some of them:
1. Airwolf
2. no cheating
4. Tensei
6. Red Hood
8. Sergey-glushche...

If you don't own this game yet, DONT BUY IT, you will come to regret it later on as I have. This game will NEVER EVER be the same again since the devs have stopped working on it. They won't ever try to do anything about the hackers and modders. So don't ever consider buying this game please.

If you already own this game here's a list of things you can do:
1. Uninstall game
2. Ask for refund
3. Review this game and click the "No" button where it asks if you recommend this game
4. Open a discussion or two about this game and the hackers

The developers of this game should be ashamed of themselves for not even trying to get rid of the hackers and modders. Now we (the innocent and non-cheating half of the community) are stuck with them, we are alone in the darkness with all kinds of bloodthirsty monsters (the hackers and modders) watching our every move.

If you want to join us and help us in fighting off these monsters, please do read the guides and keep killing the modders and cheaters. I don't care if he's on your team, get in his way and irritate him as much as possible then.

Really amazed at the positive reviews, but time for me to tip my hand into the pool. The gameplay is fantastic, and the work done by High Moon Studios is stupendous. Writing is unbelievably fantastic, and animations and character designs are beautiful to look at. Levels are also well designed, and the sounds and music is also really decent. Some hiccups here and there with the levels and creatures you have to fight, balance seems to be a bit off.

Now for the fun part.

There is no MULTIPLAYER FOR NEW USERS. Brother bought this for us when he ended up having IBS and Chrons attacks so there was something he could do to take his mind off of pain while in bed. After contacting support and trying whatever I could, there has still been no solution, and all current new users are reporting the same problem. Activision has stated it is due to microsoft's sign in software they use, and if true, I can understand they are beholden to them. Writing an entire new system would take a very long time, and could be very costly for minimum return. Problem is, it also can come at the cost of reputation.

The biggest problem I have is they do not display this information on the page, so any player who plays single then goes to play multiplayer just spent a whole lot for quite a lot less then what they expected. For that, and the fact they just released a new version on consoles and haven't done anything to fix any of this, I'd rate this game a thumbs down. Get it on console or on a 10$ or less sale.

Awesome story mode, cool graphics, some hiccups, but ¾ of the game does not work. Get at a major discount and you'll love it. If you pay full price or buy any DLC, and your gonna have a bad day. :P

Very soon once haters start realizing this system was put up, the reviews will be filled with negative ones. Before that happens, let me drop my opinion here. It's a great game at it's heart, it has an interesting storyline that makes you want to play through each chapter. The main feature here is it's brilliant multiplayer mode. Now you've probably heard of the hackers in this game, and yes, it's true. However the game has a thriving community which will guide you into friendly, hacker-free matches. Is it worth $60 though? No, I can not say this. However it would be worth it at any other price, so when the next sale hits, go for it!

If you loved War For Cybertron, you will love this one even more. Everything about this game is better than the first. You get better graphics, better gameplay, and the story is just awesome. It's a short game and I completed it on normal in about 6-7 hours. Some people miss the co-op campaign but I think it was removed for the better. Each character now has a special set of challenges that wouldn't have been possible with co-op. You really do get more diverse gameplay.

There are some features removed from War for Cybertron. Double jump no longer possible for some reason. Every transformer has the dash ability and sprint. There is a new feature that's a great idea, I feel. The teletraan 1 store appears in Campaign and Escalation mode. Basically, you have access to most of the weapons in the game, right off the bat. There are weapons that require you to find blueprints throughout the campaign. Once you find them, you can buy them with in-game coins. There are some weapon limitations. You can only have 1 standard weapon paired up with 1 support weapon at one time. Do you want to carry 2 rocket launcher type weapons at once? Not possible. This limitation might prove annoying to some, but I felt it created balance and I never felt the need for more than was given to me.

The multi-player mode is vastly improved and all the maps are fun. They are not too big but big enough to offer a challenging landscape. With endless customization everyone can have their own unique look.

All in all, this is an awesome game and High Moon did the Transformers community proud. It's got special touches that many older fans will appreciate. I highly recommend this game.

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.

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!

I have been a life long fan of the transformers. I loved the first game but this improved on it in so many ways. Great game and would recommend anyone who liked the first game to play this. The Grimlock / Dino Bots mission was by far my favourite.
