Bought this mainly for multiplayer but it is mostly dead. The team vs based games are near impossible to get in, and escalation usually ends up with only part of a team. I cant recommend this at full price, when half the game you will be missing out on.

Could only reccomend this game for the story if you are into the transformers universe, even then the game is way overpriced for its age, would recommend waitng for 75% off sale.

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!

Definitely THE best roller-coaster type shooter I've played in a long time. Surprisingly decent story (for the source material) told through linear, yet varied campaign that actually takes way more than 5 hours to complete. Really fun gameplay mechanics, not only thanks to robot transformations, but also unique character abilities and mission pacing. Top-notch voice-acting, music and graphics.
Truth be told, I think I was playing the single player campaign with a non-stop grin on my face. Most fun I've had in years.

Also, Michael Bay should watch and learn how to make a good Transformers re-imagining.

“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)

"This terrible war will reach its end. Not because all have finally become one. But simply, I fear, because all have become none." ~Ratchet

I'll start by saying i LOVE this game. It is absolutely a great Transformers game. As a Transformer-Fan or not you will enjoy this from start to finish. Now, heres my only problem. The campaign is soo broken, it's full of bugs, glitches, texture errors, which in most cases will not let you proceed through the campaign. I have come across a total of 9 glitches, 3 texture errors, and 1 bug (if you wish to, you can check my screenshots to see some of the glitches/bugs i found so far), by far the only solution i found was either exit my game (In one chapteri was knocked out to start a cutscene, instead i was knocked out but stuck on the ground, just looking around, cant move, cant do nothing, had to restart) or wait for the terrain to load up (Yes, in some cases it wont load correctly, so you will have to wait 5 minutes or so for the map to load, this depends on your computer), the AI is also a problem (Or at least for me), one time through the campaign an NPC supposed to help me to carry something, instead he decided to stay frozen while aiming to the sky, had to restart again.

Now i wont waste your time talking about the glitches, let's talk about the game it self. Let me tell you, it is awesome!. Probably one of the best Transformers game i have played in a long time. If you havent played the first game, i do not recommend going for this one, it may be a little confusing. The story is simple, yet perfect. Cybertron cant hold the civil war anymore, and both armies are running out of energon. A race for energon starts, the Decepticons find a rich energon planet (Earth), and soon find out that the Autobots will use the same portal to get there. Megatron is now trying to stop then from building the ARK, big space chase and they got ate by the portal. I dont really want to spoil you the game so i had to make this simple.
Through the campaign you get to play with Decepticons and Autobots alike. You will have to chance to play with some of the fan favorite like: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, Bumblebee, Jazz and much more.
The level design is awesome!, it really is. At one mission you get to smash some Autobugs as Bruticus or smash 'Cons as Grimlock, (Yes, you will be able to play as Grimlock, but only on the campaign, unless you pay for the DLC to get him and his teammates for multiplayer). The backgrounds are also a nice thing, they really add some immersion to the game, big space battles, big buildings, big everything!, even Metroplex is here!, you can see and command him to destroy some 'Cons (Which is really fun to watch).
Now as i said, the campaign is really buggy, but that doesnt stop you from enjoying the game, since it really does depend on your PC (As for the terrain problems).

Multiplayer, i'm not into PVP that much, but that didn't stop me from playing. You get 4 game modes:
  • Team Death Match.
  • Conquest.
  • Headhunter.
  • Capture the Flag.
With 4 classes:
  • Infiltrators.
  • Destroyers.
  • Titans.
  • Scientists.
The coolest part about Multiplayer is that you get to make your own Transformers (Well, not really. Just combine a buch of parts from others to create a new one).

And finally my favorite, Escalation.
Been playing that since the first game came, it is simple yet pretty fun. Fight 15 hordes of Decepticons/Autobots with 3 lifes, buy new weapons, new rooms, and play as some of the characters. I only have two problems with the Escalation for this game, on the first game it was infinite waves, now it is 15 for all maps, which i really dont care, but still, feels empty compare to the first game, and you cannot play with your favorite character (If hes even there *cough* Bombshell *cough*) and your favorite map. For example, Shockwave is only playable on one map, you could like him, but not the map. Each map has 4 pre-selected characters to chose from. This bothers me because on the first game you could chose between all characters on a single map, i have no clue why this change, but its pretty late to update the game.

In conclusion, this game is really worth your time, you will have a blast transformer-fan or not. My final rating for this game is a 9/10. This could be perfect if it wasnt by those bugs on the campaign and problems with the new Escalation mode system.

Hands down the best transformer game I have ever seen. This is how you make a good use of a license to make a video game. The multiplayer is hands down so satisfying. Wish I pre-ordered this game and played when the community was at its peak( I bought this in 2015 plenty of hours suprisingly). This game needs to be re-released and have added multiplayer content. Dont change the combat at all or formula copy pasta to a T maybe add more ablities to pick from. I run around as grimlock only using the cannon in vehical form completly satisfied. I dont even play the class part just the vehical mode to be grimlock in dino form. This is everything right! Bring this back right and promote it more! Years later still relivant and functional with graphics to boot. Use nvidia control panel to make this polished gem shine more. Fun for all ages, just as brutal as it should be real transformers clashing. An over haul or added dlc dont fix whats not broken at all.
