    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Transformers Fall of Cybertron improves on the original in the graphics and story department but the general gunplay, movement and ground vehicle sections feel like your average paint by numbers shooter. The basic game is great , I finished it in two days playing on and off but while I experienced a few of those moments that make you go whoa! (like walking into the acients star map room), FOC couldn't keep it up. Awesome moments such as playing as Grimlock felt extremely cumbersome and I enjoyed the idea of playing a robotic dinosaur, the reality was lackluster. Also the whole movement thing of the transformers feels off. they clunk around like giant metal robots should but they feel slow, not in a realistic way but in a frustrating, "my enemies are faster than me" kind of way. The environments were great, detailed and way more colourful than the original, but I felt myself being herded through them much too often and the ground vehicle sections felt barren and tacked on by comparison. Best levels are by FAR the flying ones, great level design and transforming in and out of vehicle while in flight is always super fun. Overall if you are a even medium transformers fan you should pick it up because it's a great portrayal of the series, but as an actual game certainly has issues. Most notably the actual transforming isn't fun on the ground and changing weapons is waaay too slow, this is extremely frustrating because the action is so fast paced. Basically T:FOC is a generic shooter with the transformers logo attached, you destroy a number of faceless minions and go through different levels without going onto any gunplay or gameplay that will make you think too hard. I'm really excited for the next Transformers game by High Moon as they just seem to keep improving on themselves. Expand

    If you manage to look past the large amounts of fan service and really dig deep into the game you'll quickly find just another average shooter with some interesting visuals. This is a game by fans, for fans.

    High Moon has put its soul into this one, and it shows. [Issue#90, p.70]
