    Thankfully, War for Cybertron impresses with an excellent single-player campaign with full co-op support, the included Horde-alike Escalation mode, and surprisingly deep and inventive online multiplayer component.
  2. After years of uninspired movie-licensed games, we finally get to run, fly and drive around with the Transformers and be happy about it. The lacking AI and unvaried fighting sections kill some of the fun, but the game does have a lot of redeeming factors and with a second player you'll feel right at home.
  3. It's the first game I've played that nails the personality of the bots and it genuinely delivers a solid gaming experience alongside the nostalgia.
  4. A Third Person Shooter with some gameplay innovations, a great atmosphere and full of action. Slightly simple in design of levels and repetitive mechanics, but fun.
  5. This game may tell a pretty banal story, it may tackle you with some moronic puzzles and the decepticon bots may sound as evil as Winnie The Pooh on amphetamines, but the bombastic, continuous action of this third person shooter lets you beg for a break.
  6. War for Cybertron is a huge leap forward compared to previous Transformers games.
  7. Its campaign is only worth seeing through if you're extremely curious to see how it ties into some of the other Transformers lore out there, and the multiplayer is solid, if perhaps a bit uninspired. It's a good diversion that'll keep you engaged for a few days, but don't go in expecting long-term excitement.

    Excellent singleplayer game. corridor style - but what a corridor! the transforms are fast and done very well. weapons are really good andExcellent singleplayer game. corridor style - but what a corridor! the transforms are fast and done very well. weapons are really good and varied, crates well-placed and not too obvious.

    each mission is physically long and challenging. some of the later ones are very challenging. it's beautiful, too. was playing and checked my graphics and they were set to medium - and it looked great. bumped it up to high and it was gorgeous.

    the story is excellent!

    it's on sale on steam right now for 75% off for $7.50, so just get it.

The game play is gripping and is surprisingly fun. Unlike some games I can play this casually and dive straight into it without having to try and spend 2-3 hours trying to get into it. The voice acting is superb and The environment looks amazing. Defiantly worth 8/10 Expand

Традиционно, между двумяСобытия игры Transformers: War for Cybertron разворачиваются на Кибертроне – родной планете автоботов и десептиконов. Традиционно, между двумя этими фракциями идет бесконечная война, только теперь она переместилась с поверхности Земли на поверхность металлической планеты роботов. Мегатрон, как обычно, пытается вершить зло. На этот раз его взор пал на мощный источник энергии, с помощью которой тот может уничтожить автоботов.

    Новая часть игры про Трансформеров кардинальным образом меняет идею игрового процесса. Если в предшествующих частях, действо в которых происходило на Земле, мы вольны были уничтожать автомобили на автострадах, да по небоскребам прыгать, то теперь продукт High Moon Studios предлагает пользователю окунуться в настоящий экшен, где нужно и с недругом бороться, и за хелс-поинтами следить.
