  1. In the end Transformers: War for Cybertron: Decepticons ends up being a pretty decent shooter.
  2. Transformers fans can expect rapid action, a touch of a role-playing game and a capturing story. Pretty cool.
  3. Transformers: War for Cybertron on Nintendo DS is a nice action game, with a good combat system and lots of enemies to face. It's also really deep and challenging. Definitely, it's worth a try.
  4. From its voice acting to its boss battles, War for Cybertron is totally for the fans--but it will also satisfy anyone who wants a good action game on the go. [Sept 2010, p.90]
  5. I think Vicarious Visions did a respectable job with the DS version of War For Cybertron. It's not a great game, but at the same time it's far from bad, and Transformers fans with a DS should give this some consideration.
  6. The game is a lot of fun but quickly becomes repetitive; this combined with poor controls and short gameplay makes this title a lot less desirable in the end.
  7. Over-all, War for Cybertron DS was mediocre.
  8. Transformers: War For Cybertron made a valiant attempt at breaking the licensed stigma that seems to follow tie-in titles like this. While it doesn't achieve greatness, I can't help but at least give it credit for the attempt.
  9. It's too mired in tedium. [Aug 2010, p.72]

    Hey, about time transformers came up with a good game since 2007. Charecters, Multiplayer, Easy, no Wifi, and no Creat a bot. Little storyline, but it was too good for me to pay attention to that!
    10/10 yeah! DECEPTICONS!!!!!
