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.

"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.

Do you like robots? Do you like fire-breathing dinosaurs? Do you like enormous guns that crush and smash and assimiliate the energy of your enemies? Do you like a simple story with lovable characters that you can't help but root for regardless of their allegiance? Do you like a fairly clean story that you can play with most of the family? Do you like an enjoyable and asymmetric multiplayer with customizable aspects?

Of course you do. Get this game.

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 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 campain 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.

Transformers Fall of Cybertron is a third person action game, developed by Mercenary Technologies and published by Activision – being released in August 2012. Being a bit of a fan of the Transformers franchise, this was my first foray into the games for the series so was quite excited to see what was on offer.

The game play is played from the perspective of a number of main characters from the series, you don’t play as a single side of the factions, you swap from side to side which was an interesting way to take the game, throughout the campaign you get times where you will swap characters midway through cut scenes in order to help the story flow better; this was done really well and made the game a much more memorable experience overall. The action in Fall of Cybertron is done really well too; there is an element of cover based combat because as soon as you enter open grounds you tend to just get pummelled into mincemeat by incoming fire so you have to use your environment to your advantage. All of the characters you play as have their two different forms, these can vary from a car, tank, or planes, all following suite with the lore of the series. The characters will also come equip with distinct different abilities, some of which are a little out there such as stealth mechanics which didn’t really fit too well, but it was a bit of a change from the norm.

Throughout the campaign you’ll run into a number of fights which are done on the larger scale, obviously being a Transformer you are much bigger than most enemies anyway, but some fights take place in large open battlefields where you are really tested against your skill and of course you’ll stand side by side with a city sized autobot which just wrecks anything in its path quite early in the story too so you’ll really want look forward to that!

Even though this game is nearing on four years old now, it still looks fairly decent, you can definitely see a bit of the aging come into play when you get up close to some textures, but the majority of the time you are able to forget that this game came out in 2012 because it doesn’t look like it. The animations of characters are really well done, especially the transformation from different forms, I was almost expecting it to go through to a pre-animated cut scene to see these play out but they are all done in engine and real-time which was a pleasant surprise. Voice acting is spot on with all the veteran voice actors; Peter Cullen and Fred Tatasciore making an appearance which is always a major plus for any franchise game to get the actual voices of the characters involved too.

Whilst the majority of the game play from Fall of Cybertron is fairly easy and simple, there were a few times which had me dying a lot. Any mission which involved defending a NPC whilst they carried out a task, always seemed to end up with me dying constantly. After a few attempts I was able to get passed but that is probably down to me being more of an incompetent player. The game does have varying level of difficulties which you can change on the fly throughout the story mode which is a key factor in getting the longevity out of a single player experience if you ask me – start on the highest difficulty and then work your way down if you find things too tough.

The single player mode of Fall of Cybertron took me just over eight hours to complete – this consists of 13 chapters and a decent amount of cut scenes to allow the plot to flow more easily. Whilst there are alternative endings to the game depending on an important decision towards the end, you’ll probably only get enjoyment out of a second play through if you are a real hard core Transformer fan. It is also sad to say that the multiplayer scene for this game is none existent; I wasn’t even able to find a match to play in so I can’t even comment on whether it was any good or not.

Even though I enjoyed Fall of Cybertron, and it’s a good game; I was at no point really looking forward to playing it whenever I booted up my computer. It took me over a week of real life time to actually finish a game, and normally for games like this I can blast out in a day or two; it didn’t have that real WOW factor that a lot of games have now days; even though my review talks mostly about the positives of the game, and even though there are no real negative points it’s still hard for me to recommend this game higher than a mere recommendation for when it is on sale. The premium price tag of £29.99 is way over marketed for what is essentially a single player game with not much replay ability going on.

Tom's Score Card
1) Stay away
2) Not Recommended
3) Only recommended when on sale
4) Recommended
5) Highly recommended
6) This is a must play

Ok where do I start. The graphics are pretty good, the multiplayer works great (at least for me I've read that someone has issues with logging into multiplayer), the story line is well done. I really like the game. Of course a lot of games these days require a good PC but you ain't getting around that. I mean mine is 5 years old and the game runs alright for a longer period of time but I can see a lot of people complaining in the community about problems with certain games. Guys, do what I do. Just save money for a better one. Everyone who has a PC should be able to save at least some money. I've done the maths and I need to save money for 2 more years to get a REALLY good PC. Meaning a new one which works a lot better. However I'd only need one that works a bit better. So 1 year and a half should do the trick. Yes it's that easy. There's nothing wrong with the game. It is most likely your PC.

War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron are Matrix-down the best Transformers games ever made. Devastation is a lot of fun, and a great nostalgia time for us G1 fans, but as a game it doesn't quite match these two. The only con(heh) I can think of is, the rather sad multiplayer base. The single player is awesome. The multiplayer is also fantastic, but it was hard to find decent games even when it was newer due to lack of PC players (they all seemed to be on Xbox as I never used to have trouble with WfC even as it got a bit older, but I long since gave away my Xbox). Otherwise, if you like Transformers, you're missing out if you don't have these games. :)

Having played and enjoyed the other Transformers games in the Cybertron series, I knew that when I saw Fall of Cybertron on sale I had to try it out. The game is a prequel of sorts, taking place during the autobot construction of the Ark, prior to when the planet cybertron is completely destroyed.

I haven't played the multiplayer that the game has to offer, but for the sales price tag, the single player alone was a really good deal. The game itself is extremely well done, the voice acting is top notch. Hats off to the team for putting together Peter Cullen (Prime) and Frank Welker (Megatron) to help make the game feel complete. The old-style models come to life, and the gameplay itself is engaging and fun and action oriented. The way that the campaign switches you between autobot and decepticon really helps relive that childhood feeling where the show would often times bounce back and forth between the two factions.

Transformers may not be for everyone. For me, it's a huge shout out to my youth, especially since I still have some of the original G1 toys in an old box in my closet. If you aren't a fan of the franchise or the toys, it might still be an enjoyable action oriented robot shooting game. It's a "low thought" type game where you just load it up and start charging in, guns blazing.

Having beaten the game, the only other thing I wanted to mention is that I really appreciate what the developers and studio put in there during the credits. I won't spoil it, but it's definitely worth beating the game to watch the end sequence. Well done!

I think that it is a really good game, multi player and singleplayer. Yes, the story gets repetitive, but its still really fun. But there are hackers and modders everywhere, and that can ruin the experience. Really fun, but watch out.
