Dark Spark Battle Pack
Annihilate your enemies with this all-in-one weapon/character pack.



Skywarp: He has never been interested in power or conquest, only the pursuit of knowledge. He joined the Decepticons to produce powerful weapons and experimental systems for use in combat.

Thundercracker: A Decepticon Seeker: a master of flight and aerial combat. He defected to the Decepticons with Starscream and Skywarp and now serves Megatron.

Stinger: A silent and mysterious bot. His motivations are unclear, but his prowess in battle is nothing to be trifled with. There may be more to Stinger than meets the eye…

Glass Gas Cannon: This weapon creates a distortion field in mid-air, suspending opponents in mid-air and rendering them helpless before sending them smashing into the ground at high velocity.

Electro Bolter: This weapon launches deadly harpoon-style projectiles. The kinetic energy of these projectiles knocks enemies back on impact and can even pin them to walls.

if you want a transformers game get TF:WAR FOR CYBERTRON and TF:FALL OF CYBERTRON. these games are the first two of this series and were made by high moon studios they were great but good ol' activision decided high moon would be better off making cod ports and left edge of reality to do this game. WORST IDEA EVER. everything is just reused assets with slightly different textures that just dont fit at all. The grimlock mission from TF:FOC was great so they decided to do that again but they made grimlock look like the movie one but kept the same trnsformation from the previous game which just made it look so bad.

I did not believe. I could not belive. I did not want to believe... The negative reviews, I mean...

I was fully aware this was not a High Moon game. That it would pale in comparison to War for Cybertron or Fall of Cybertron. And honestly, I didn't even expect it to be great. It's just that, after seeing how the same engine was used, as well as the assets, I thought: "Well, perhaps at the very least the shooting is going to be enjoyable? I mean, it cannot really be that bad, right...? right...?".

right...?

<sobs>

Lets start by addressing one of the most important things that's missing from this Transformers game, which is NEARLY ALL TRANSFORMATION SOUND EFFECTS. Call me crazy, but I remember spending two minutes pressing F over and over again when I first played War for Cybertron, only for nostalgia's sake. Yet here, off all the assets reused from other games, the only thing they should have reused is missing almost completely. Some of the robot transformations are completely silent.

Oh, right, speaking of assets, nearly everything other than voiceovers is reused in some way here, with very little new stuff added. And it's all put together in such a lazy way it's honestly just painful to watch. The environments are bland, empty, ugly, the sound levels are all over the place, the animation is wonky and the pre-rendered cutscenes are so low-res you'd think they were recorded off an Xbox One or something (heyoo!). Not to mention, the level design is a joke, leaving little to no room to use transformations in any fun way, and offering no interesting sights to look at.

But whatever, Fall of Cybertron was also short on vehicle segments. The question is, how good is the action?

It's not...

I can't even fully comprehend how they've manged it. Putting aside the fact that the luck/grind based item/weapon unlock system is utter garbage, and the controls somehow feel less responsive than the previous games, the real issue is the fact the enemies are glitchy, dumb and cheap. Enjoy shooting at enemies stuck inside or under a texture, running blindly into a wall while standing next to you, or sniping you from a long distance with a couple of extremely precise rapid fire rounds. Heck, even the Bruticus and Grimlock levels are glitchy and... boring... HOW DO YOU DO THAT?!

The only redeeming thing about the game are some of the dialogues between known characters and some background lore. Still, neither the Cybertron's, nor the Bay's "story" fit well anywhere within their respective timelines.

Oh, didn't I mention that about 1/3 of the game is based on Bayformers? As if things couldn't get any worse...

I got this game off a sale thinking it may not be AS bad as people say, and at the very least I'll enjoy some mindless action. I was wrong and I regret the purchase. I should have played Fall of Cybertron for the 10th time instead.

Yes, it has ♥♥♥♥♥♥ graphics. Yes, the story is drivel. Yes, it was clearly rushed. But, the gameplay is still strong in the sense that the engine is solid and blasting your way through levels is still fun and rewarding. This game is also a step up difficulty wise; the previous games were severely underwhelming when it came to challenge, even on hard. This game gave me pause, and frustration, which I liked. If you're a fan of third person shooters, this game is for you. If you're a fan of Transformers or story driven games.. Perhaps not so much. Solid 6.5/10, based purely on gameplay.

This game has its moments i wouldn't recommend this unless your a Transformers fan, in any case you would probaly have bought this regaurdless. not as good as WfC and nowhere near as good as FoC

Pretty average 3rd person shooter, no big speacial moments, horrible story started off strong then just dies, even manages to ♥♥♥♥ up playing as grimlock.

Some replayability in the form of challenges during each mission which are quite fun and hard to get.

was disapointing

I was really excited to play this game when it came out, so I bought it ($50) and started to play. IT CRASHED WHEN IT WAS LOADING UP THE FIRST LEVEL!!! Apparently there is a bug that crashes the game when you try to play the campaign or the escalation (multiplayer) modes. And one top of that, only a few peaple get this problem. I find this unfair. I had this for almost a year now and it still won't work! I might as well ask for my money back or to exchange for another game.

I do not recommend getting this game until Steam finally decides to fix this bug.

Just finished this around 6 hours game time. I read about how bad it was since High Moon didn’t develop it and this game goes to show you how much High Moon loves this franchise because this game definitely lacked the heart of War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron. I am a huge HUGE fan of both of those games and they are the only reason I wanted to try Rise of the Dark Spark. Can’t customize the controls, no FOV slider or fix just like the previous games but at least you can fix the controls with 3rd party software and the first two games had fixes available for the bad FOV however in this game you can’t adjust the FOV at all and I could only play this is short bursts because of massive headaches. This game had a couple of good moments with Jetfire and BumbleBee but that’s pretty much it. The sound needed serious work as it kept cutting to low volume to high volume, missing transforming sounds, enemies repeating annoying lines etc. The first two games had such booming sound effects that you must play them with the volume cranked. My goodness High Moon needs to be saved from the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ CoD franchise and put back on other games.

I only recommend this game if you are a huge fan of WFC or FOC and even then this one is barely passable.

I don’t have Dark of the Moon, is that one any good?

ATTENTION ALL GAMERS WHO ARE CONSIDERING GETTING THIS GAME: STAY THE HELL AWAY.
This game is pure garbage. During the first half of the game you play back when the transformers were still on Cybertron. Now this sound good to you, it sounded ammazing to me, but the developers were too lazy to even try to bring the charm from the previous games. Character models are ripped straight from the previous games with absolutely no texture upgrades or improvements. Oh, but they couldn't be bothered with bringing in all of the sound files, because nearly every single character is missing one of their transforming sound effects. Pre-rendered HD cutscenes have been replaced by laggy, buggy, boring cutscenes that use in-game graphics and end up looking like garbage. Instead of buying weapons and their upgrades, you earn chests at the end of levels that randomly give you character trophies, perks, gear, and weapons. This is a failed attempt to innovate the game because 90% of the time you are getting ♥♥♥♥ you've already gotten, which it then converts to a crappy perk or something.
The second half of the game takes place on Earth in Michael Bay's Transformers universe. If this doesn't already activate red flags just take a seat, sonny. Now, I will give it credit; the graphics on Earth are beautiful. Bright vivid colors, smooth textures, and good looking character models are just a painfull reminder of how good the first half of the game could have looked. My biggest complaint is absolutely pathetic character roster. You can play as Optimus, Bumblebee, Drift, and Grimlock. That's ♥♥♥♥ing it. Oh, you liked playing as Grimlock in the last game? Good! His controls, transformation animation, attacks, sounds are exactly the same as they were in Fall of Cybertron, just with a new half-♥♥♥♥♥ skin slapped on it. Oh, the final boss is a joke, so don't get your hopes up.
Even after you finish the god awful campain mode, they ♥♥♥♥ up the multiplayer, which was the part I was looking forward to the most. Instead of modes like team deathmatch, capture the flag, head hunter, etc, with a decent character creator, you get a half-♥♥♥♥♥ escalation mode that forces you to play as characters from the game. It's not fun at all because nobody else plays, so good luck finding a match.
This game is a disgrace. It pisses on the good name the last two Transformers games had built, robs you of SIXTY ♥♥♥♥ING DOLLARS, and wastes time you could have been spending on a better game. ActiVision should be ashamed of themselves. A SHAMEFULL DISPLAY!!

With High Moon butchered and sent off to make Call of Duty ports for the rest of eternity (hereby referred to as The Activision Purgatory), Rise of the Dark Spark is a game built over the grave of the phenomenal "Cybertron" series of games, by new developer Edge of Reality, the studio that bought you... err, The Incredible Hulk. And the console port of Dragon Age: Origins. With a pedigree like that, what could go wrong.

Technically, there's everything in this that made War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron work - appealing third-person shooting, familiar faces and voices from the G1 Transformers cartoon, and gimmicks hooked in from the Transformers universe that are, admittedly, as compelling as they have been, if nowhere near as fresh. It's deprived of a soul, though.

It's a product, built and manufactured with devious precision, from the inclusion of the Michael Bay film universe to satiate marketing drive, to scenarios that seem to be outright ripped from prior games. Very few new things happen in this game, instead opting to be some kind of weird, bad DLC for Fall of Cybertron, only selling at full-price, as a tie-in to a often-derided Transformers universe, at least by fans (the same fans that made the High Moon games successful). It's an insult, albeit a perfectly playable one, with a confusing plot, bored actors, tried-and-true gameplay that has nontheless run its course and has been sucked of all joy. Also, it is really ugly. Ech.

No-one deserved this. High Moon especially, their legacy trampled on as they scream silently in The Activision Purgatory. Rise of the Dark Spark, bafflingly, takes two of the most intensely passionate games of the last decade and turns it into the definition of "shovelware". I could recommend it to people who really, REALLY want to play more of Fall of Cybertron but much, MUCH worse - and if that sounds like it could be fun to you, well, bully t'you, but it's not exactly my idea of a good time, and I don't doubt most would agree with me.

If you're played the other two Cybertron titles you'll know that they had no right being as good as they were; the first was a solid third person shooter with an enjoyable story, co-op and a good multiplayer. The second game improved everything about the first game, removed the co-op for a better campaign mode and had a really good multiplayer mode. Where's this game fall into place? Bottom of the barrel.

I've only played one mission (about 20 minutes in) and part of the second and this game is a massive disappointment. The first mission has you as Drift, a new autobot from the forth film who's a Samurai that blurts crap about "honor" but has a deep voice that makes him sound Native American. Right. Oh, and you're also on Earth and things are going down all over the place. You're just dropped into some conflict without any explanation and Lockdown (the seemingly villian) is already established as the enemy. I take it you'll have to see the movie first for this to make any sense. The gameplay is the same from the first two titles, you mow down enemies, transform into vehicles and use special abilities. This game each character has a unique ability, in the case of Drift you get a one-hit-KO attack where he dashed to any nearby enemies and kills them. It looks really really bad. Speaking about looking bad the environment looks awful, you get a drab looking city without any details that looks like it's from a game made 10 years ago, painted brown (of course) and the characters really just don't fit in. Character models look great by the way. Except their vehicle modes, not because of a lack of detail but because I don't think they licensed any vehicles. So instead of turning into a Bugatti Veyron like in the film you turn into a generic sports car that somewhat resembles a Veyron, like how Rockstar does for the GTA games so they don't have to pony up the money. I didn't get a chance to play as the other characters in the intro and Bumblebee and Optimus didn't Transform so I can't say if all vehicles are imitations of what they're supposed to be.

The second mission I was playing as Shockwave and Soundwave on Cybertron and it looks just like the old games which is really nice, Cybertron has lots of detail and the characters really fit in. They also retain the aesthetic the first two games established and the same voice actors reprise their roles. All is well on Cybertron. But I'm not sure why I'm there? If you remember the end of the last game all of the characters battle on the Ark and get lost in the depths of space in a cliffhanger and presumingly to arrive on Earth but nothing is explained here. The first mission I was already on Earth and the second mission I'm on Cybertron? Again? After we already left? I'm going to assume the rest of the story explains it and that the game is taking place during the other two and after the other two games. At the same time. Or something.

Last but not least, and the greatest offender and the whole reason why I can't recommend this game:

There's NO multiplayer.

Well, there is, but in only in the co-op "Escalation" mode that was in the previous two games. You fight waves of enemies with friends on different maps and nothing more. This mode was never populated in either of the previous titles because the team deathmatch was just so good. I've dumped more hours in Fall of Cybertron's multiplayer than I have in most of my Steam titles. It was that good and if you've played it you know that I'm right. I was hoping this game would improve upon it, give us more characters to use in multiplayer and repopulate the playerbase which at this point is lacking in Fall of Cybertron. It's ironic that the team that made this game, Edge of Reality, made their mark with the multiplayer only "Loadout" and then completely scrapped the best mode in the Transformers series in favor of a bad campaign and lazy horde mode.

Don't buy this game and instead buy the first two and enjoy the hell out of them and join me and the many Russians that still play Fall of Cybertron's multiplayer. I hope that if his series is to continue, it's under the hand of High Moon Studios. I will amend my review if I feel the game gets any better as you play further into the campaign.

Update: 3 hours into the game I'm on Chapter 8 out of 14, there's probably 2 hours left into it. The game has stayed mediocre throughout, but thankfully most of it takes place on Cybertron. I actually haven't gone back to Earth, though I'm guessing the end chapters take you back. So far everything has been a rehash of the same art assets from the previous two titles but don't live up to either games' level design. You even get to play as Bruticus again and it's completely boring; you're in a small area and you spend 10 minutes fighting three different types of enemy and nothing changes. There's a lot of areas where you have to fight wave after wave of enemies and can't progress until you kill enough enemies.

The dialogue is fantastic though, and you get to play as a lot more characters in this one which is a really nice touch, but the rest of the game doesn't hold up. If you're a big Transformers fan and you have to play it, wait until it's $15.

I really, really love the Cybertron franchise but as a loving parent and devoted fan I have to slap this one silly.

So where do I begin ?
I did not like it and I don't recommend the game. It's sad to see something that I really like assembled in sush a lazy way with no love or care put in to it. The way the game is played is EXACTLY like its predecessor Fall of Cybertron, with little to no effort to optimize. It's littered with re'used animations, props and models from both Fall and War slapped together in a lazy and awkward manner. There are also lots of inexcusable texture fails as well as some really awkward animations in the cutscenes. As an artist this really got on my nerves. The level design was also random and awkward with random prop everywhere or the lack of any with a single console in the middle of an empty room.
[Edit: What I mean is that many times the game feels really flat with empty rooms and flat textures. Other times I see pieces of the world placed strangely serving no purpose, it's just there.]

Playing this game made me feel like it was Colonial Marines all over again.

The audio was inconsistent and the com link had this strange and really annoying sound, was driving me nuts ! It got bugs and glitches everywhere, the companion A.I. is really bad too. It really feels like an unfinished product.
Lastly the Story feels like a really bad fan fiction ... There are 2 story lines, Bayformers and Cybertron. The first 2 or so chapters begin with Drift in Bays universe discovering the EVIL plot device ‘The Dark Spark’. The rest after that is pretty much just explaining how "the EVIL plot device" got there in the first place through the Cybertron universe. And then there's another 2 er 3 or so chapters in the end again with Bayformers with MIGHTY GRIMLOCK !!!! Slapped in there at the last moment as a ‘glorious finish’.

Honestly it's all a real mess and the Bayformers part feels really off from the rest of the game.

But ... I did really like the dialogs. The interactions between the characters were as awesome and wonderful as always. It had an interesting level and upgrading system. I will say that the game works smoothly in combat, the vehicle forms are still a little clunky. But I say that cuz’ it's more or less exactly the same as Fall of Cybertron.

Does this make up for all terribleness in this game, no. Do I recommend this game, no.
However as I wrote, I did like the characters, they’re awesome. Shockwave, is. Weird ...
So it is worth a look at ... But please for the love of everything that is Transformers !!
Do NOT, pay full price for this game !!!

Or maybe, watch a game play of it first ?
Just to make sure you really wanna spend money on it.

Edit: Thoughts on Escalation.

I don't like escalation that much I'm more in to tdm multiplayer; sadly Dark Spark did not have one. However Cuz' it's so identical to Fall I can see why they did not have one. But anyway; the escalation is definitely one of the games strong points but the maps do suffer from the things I've mentioned previously. And the bad A.I. doesn’t help. This version of escalation does provide a lot more freedom in both characters and gear, you can mix and match as much as you want, (This also leads to some characters gettin' a tad ooc "out of character" e.g Grimlock with stealth and sniper). However I felt it lacked a sense of progression and the dispensers were placed a little odd, or I dono, it was a lill' off to me.

But in the end, I can see the charm in it. Personally I got bored with it rather quickly. Felt more or less like a DLC to Fall.

Edit, edit:
Ya know what ?
Sooo Mungry says it all: (Escalation)

The biggest insult of a game since Alien: Colonial Marines.

I'm a huge fan of Transformers and this game was just a great failure! Really!?! After those great games WfC and Foc(War for Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron) we get this. The campaing sucks and WE HAVE NO MULTIPLAYER! Only escalation(it's the only good thing in the game). No new weapons, just 5 new characters who are from Bayformers... and if I remember right 8 maps to escalation mode where players fight together agains 15 waves of enemies. Thats it. SPOILER WARNING!!! The campaing start in cyberton and the transformers are looking for the mysterious dark spark. After many of boring levels(the leveld don't even fit to FoC storyline) we get to earth AND THE BAYFORMERS UNIVERSE! After great story in the other games before this stupid game, the makers of the game decide to kill everyone! Well Optimus, Bumblebee and Drift are alive... but everyone else is DEAD. No Unicron, no continuing the old story, just combaining Bay's movies and the old good games. The story really SUCKS. There is still some new things: You can level up your character in campaing and escalation(it doesn't effect the game anyway) to level 25, and then you can activate "Prime mode". It means that you have level your character again to level 25 and unlock all characters and weapons again. What is the point in it? And from like achievements and completing waves in escalation you get gearboxes. When you open those boxes you get new weapons, characters, abilities, and upgrades. First its fun, but after a while it will be very boring! You get like 100 gearboxes in 2 minutes! Well not really that much, but I think you get it. The graphics are the same they were in FoC, and controls too. Buy this only If you are a big fan of Transformers. I'm so disappointed to this game... maybe next time we get a better one? :) This was my first review in Steam, I hope it helped you. I give this game 3/10. Sorry Edge of Reality, High Moon Studios just makes better Transformers games.
UPDATE!!! I was wrong about the story(I went to wiki to check it). The Dark Spark just appeared in the movie universe. But, the story is still very bad. :(

WARNING: This game is locked to 30 FPS for the multiplayer portion. The campaign runs at smooth 60 FPS.

Pros:
- Coat of polish to the old and recycled assets from previous games to make them look good.
- The cybertron half of the game is great.
- Top notch voice acting
- uhhh...

Cons:
- Difficulty spikes. Sometimes you have to fight little drones which are like over powered aimbots. They have extremely high accuracy, very small hit box, and very high rate of fire and damage.
- 'Cinematic' 30FPS for multiplayer portion (it is locked at 30 FPS. No way to change it. Tried altering V-sync but to no avail)
- Recycled animations/models/multiplayer maps
- Cut scenes are so bad its funny
- Grainy low-resolution cut scenes
- Unfinished details in environment
- Only 2 new earth multipayer maps, both of which are very small
- They didnt bother to recycle/add more maps, making the game feel lacking in content for a full priced game
- New assets (eg. models/textures/FX/Animtions) look like cheap ♥♥♥♥
- Very little new content, most content is recycled
- Campaign is very short
- There is no PvP competitve multiplayer, only 4 player coop horde mode (Escalation)
- Escalation is only 15 waves

If you are huge transformers fan and are willing to look past these flaws, pirate the game, see if you like it, then buy it if you like it.

I really had high hopes for this game, being a direct sequel to Fall of Cybertron, and by extension War for Cybertron, both outstanding games. This game however is a big disappointment. Remember how in the previous games you could customize your Escalation character? That's reduced to a fraction of it's former glory. Remember the charming and amazing nature of the previous games? Also nonexistant here. And the worst part? Complete elimination of online competitive multiplayer. Seems like a rather major factor to miss, to me.

A weak storyline, trying (and failing) to combine the War/Fall of Cybertron and the movie universe, making it more confusing than it should be. Added to the lack of PvP multiplayer, It's lack luster.

When I heard about this game, I was excited about it. But after playing this...I somewhat felt like the game isn't worth its price tag. Note that I will be comparing this game with War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron.
*Spoilers are here*
Plot: The game's plot iss underplayed. For a game that focuses on the Dark Spark, the Dark Spark nor its holders did anything. Lockdown did use the Dark Spark to simply time freeze the Autobots but never capitalize on that. Megatron only used the Dark Spark to create what I will call Terrorcon based from Transformers Prime. Other than that, Megatron never use the Dark Spark to his advantage. In contrast, War for Cybertron focus on Dark Energon. As such, Megatron utilizes Dark Energon to corrupt Cybertron tippng the balance. Thus, I feel as though the entire Rise of the Dark Spark's plot is just another Autobots vs Decepticons fight with nothing that can tip the balance.

Gameplay: This game is similar to Fall of Cybertron in terms of control. Progression is different. Instead of gathering energon shards from killed enemies, you now have leveling system. Leveling doesn't boost your character in the campaign. It only serves as a means to reaching Prime mode. Campaign and Escalation are linked with each other. So, if you level up in the campaign, your level in Escalation will be the same as well as the amount of EXP you have. Unlocking and upgrading weapons depend on gear boxes that you get from challenges and leveling up. While this sounds good, it's not. Every time you open the box, you have a chance to earn random items from weapon unlocks, upgrades, TECH item, HACK, and so on. With that said, it can get frustrating to go through many boxes and not get a weapon upgrade to get the last upgrade.

In terms of the game overall difficulty (assuming you play it on normal), the game tends to spike in difficulty. For example, in a mission where Starscream, Shockwave, and Soundwave are searching for the Dark Spark, they come across a group of Guardians. Okay, nothing too difficult...right? No, there are small drones identical to CLUTCH that can destroy in less than a second. Why? Because they hit very hard. Two or three shots can rip your shields and possibly kill you off. Again, these things are tiny and hard to see. Thus, you have to slowly progress through the level while keeping an eye in the air for one of those nasty thing.

For online gameplay, you are left with only Escalation...yes, no online competatitve multiplayer. While I'm not a big PVP kind of person, having no online competative multiplayer make this game not even worth the $50. While Escalation is fun, but I have seen people just simply spawn camped the enemies make the game even less of fun time.

Graphic/Presentation:This game is similar to Fall of Cybertron but a bit lesser. The Earth mission areas are somewhat barren especially in the city. The only minor redeeming factor is the looks of mission areas in Cybertron...but it's something that I've already seen.
The game does have its own soundtrack, but the majority of the music you will hear is from Fall of Cybertron. This is true when you are playing on Cybertron.

Summary:Overall, I would not recommend to buy this game until the price is down. Even then, you probably won't get your money's worth if you have played the previous game. If you want to get into the Transformers series, this is not the game you want to play.
