    Despite the lack of co-op Fall of Cybertron is a huge improvement on its predecessor, offering plenty of entertainment for the non-fan and out-and-out geekgasms for the Transformers acolyte.

    Offers one of the best single player campaigns we've seen in years. Entertaining, different, intense, spectacular and with really memorable moments. It sticks to the original series, something fans will definitely love. It offers everything Transformers fans have always asked for. Its multiplayer modes won't be consider revolutionary, but it is a must-have, above all if you're a fan of the series.

    Transformers: Fall of Cybertron oozes quality, in every aspect, easily surpassing its predecessor (which was a mediocre game in any case) and is definitely counted among the best third person shooters of the year. [October 2012]

    It's exactly what meets the eye - which is to say a good-hearted festival of a game about talking robots shooting and smashing each other, shouting itself raw-throated in joy at the toys it gets to play with, but no more than that.

    By its impressive setting, missions great variability and a perfect screenplay, dignity has been restored to the Transformers' game series. This is a great mound scrap iron performance that is going to make every Transformers fan happy.

I am a huge fan of theThis is the first game I have been truly excited for since Batman: Akham City, and it has not dissapointed one bit. I am a huge fan of the source material for both titles, and High Moon Studios has shown that they are just as knowledgeable and devoted as Rocksteady. The game delivers on al fronts: the single player has been vastly improved from War for Cybertron, making each level a totally unique experience. The multiplayer has been improved as well, with the possibility of creating your own transformer. The game has not let me down on any point, and is by far the best and most original shooter I have played in months. Now I am left thinking the Michael Bay movies could have profitted from some of High Moon's expertise. Expand

Escalation mode isThe Best transformers game now after War for cybertron being the best before! Great Multiplayer and customization options. Escalation mode is improved and provided with other tactical options! Campaign takes 10 hours on normal so the single player itself is worth it. This game is a must for G1 Transformers fans and will keep you playing for months! Expand

A scale bigger than god of war 3. graphics are great, audio is great, and the controls with m/k are tight. if youre not a fan of transformers, download the demo, this game might change you. if you are a fan, GO GET THIS RIGHT NOW. you will get goosebumps every 10 seconds of the story.

    High Moon has done it again.
    Big fan of the G1-Michael Bay mixed style for the transformers, and the atmosphere right off the bat is quite chilling. Within the first 10 minutes you can feel the desperation for survival from the Autobots' perspective.
    There's always something to do; if you can get what you want to work. With that said, I am perfectly fine with the few glitches in the interface, or lack of VOIP, text, etc. in Multiplayer matches. To me, that was to be expected.
    We all have to remember that at one time, the PC community was not going to receive this game, and for that I am extremely grateful to be able to play it with a mouse and keyboard. Story is good, Multiplayer is better, and all my favorite transformers are in this installment. 9/10.

    A solid third person shooter with Transformers wallpaper; underneath that, the game is clearly made by fans who understand why kids in 1985A solid third person shooter with Transformers wallpaper; underneath that, the game is clearly made by fans who understand why kids in 1985 went crazy for these things. For an old fan, the many references to the 1986 movie and the inclusion of Shockwave, the Insecticons, the Dinobots and Metroplex is worth owning the game for. Expand

I have not completed the game, so I cannot comment on story besides the fact that the first few missions are awesome. I had a tear in my eye, so High Moon did well there.

    The multiplayer is fantastic, not quite as in depth as the first one, but just feels tighter altogether.
    BUT

    The multiplayer never works. I am plagued with negative countdown timers (the matches never start) and a barebones community. WHEN I get into a match, it is some of the best multiplayer action I have experienced in a long time.

    Other features that are missing from this obvious console port are communications. There are no chat lobbies, dedicated servers, VOIP (voice chat), or any other means of communications at all. This game REQUIRES being able to speak to each other. Private matches are there, which is nice, but there is no real way to play ranked 5v5's or 4v4's with your friends (premade). In order to play with your friends you have to play against them. I don't like that. I like being able to play a game where I can rely on teammates and have strategy.

    One of the biggest things that bugs me is the general clunkiness of the menus. Everytime I have to duck a lobby, because it isn't launching, I have to communicate with Teletraan I or whatever. I'm sorry. This needs to be done at the end of a match. Even then, it should prevent you from doing anything. It should run in the background.

    TL;DR This game has some serious matchmaking issues. The story seems cool so far. I am requesting a refund from Steam because half of the game doesn't work. Hence 4/10.
