    I started playing this game positively, I'd heard it was like gears of war with robots. But, sadly, no. Before i'd played the campaign i'd previously played the multiplayer which I enjoyed. If I was rating the multiplayer i'd give it 7/10. But when I got round to playing the campaign at a friends house I was disapointed. The robots were the same colours as the extremely boring and bland setting. Not just the autobots but the decepticons aswell. The combat is just boring and the weapons are just unsatisfying. One reedeming quality was the vehicles that was pretty innovative. But overall its a terrible game and thats coming from a transformers fan! Expand

    LOL, these scores are too high. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY THIS GARBAGE. you have been warned LOL...
    awww man, i gotta do 150 characters minimum? ok here it goes:
    Looks: terrible, way to b lazy craptivision
    Mechanics: not enough ammo, "powers" are lame, lackluster, all basically the same
    umm, what else. ok, basically u run from one cybertron themed room to another fighting generic
    robots. sub-par graphics, it really is all that is wrong with movie games. if u absolutely must play all transformers games then please just rent it so they dont get any money at l;east, but seriously, this is beyond a "skip", this deserves serious repercussions. seriously craptivision, how hard is it to just make a decent game?

  1. It's not subtle or clever, but this unashamedly uncomplicated shooter is one of the best of the year.

    As an action game, this can't contend with the top dogs in the genre, but that's a moot point, because it isn't just an action game. It's a Transformers game. And Transformers: War for Cybertron is better than anything else we've seen from the license before.

    Transformers: The War for Cybertron is definitely a love-letter to fans of the G1 cartoon series. All of your favorite characters are here and somehow mixed in with a genuinely fun and competent shooter.
