The only problem I have with Transformers: War for Cybertron games is the linear and repetitive game-play. Other than that, this is the best Transformers game I ever played. As a long time Transformers fan, and after buying the two previous Transformers games title, Transformers: The Game and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, I am not prepared for another letdown. Luckily a friend bought this first, and I got to try it at his place. I fell in love with the game right away and got myself a copy.
They finally made a decent Transformers game.
Here is some snapshot which I took from my PC. I know that they are not my best screenshots, but when you get distracted by the beautiful cut-scenes, it is difficult to capture screen 🙂 The graphics for this game is simply breathtaking. Once the game starts, you are immersed in the metallic and futuristic look of Cybertron.
Other than beautiful graphics, the best thing about Transformers: War For Cybertron is instant transformation. You are able to transform from vehicle to robot and vice-versa instantly at any time to utilize its different abilities.
The control is quite simple, especially when I am only using my keyboard and mouse instead of a joystick.
If you are playing the solo campaign mode, you will start as Decepticon. Although the Autobots campaign only starts at chapter 6 if you follow storyline strictly, you could actually choose whether you want to start playing as Decepticon or Autobots. At each chapter, you are given three characters to choose from to play. Although the linear type of game-play, but with different character classes, abilities and weapons to choose from, you will enjoy spending the long hours to complete this game. Even my son is asking permission to play the chapters which I have completed. He is only allowed on the PS and PS2, when it comes to PC games, he has to ask first.
My current status – I am only at Chapter IV, to capture Zeta Prime. Another 6 chapters to go 😀
If you are interested in buying this game I would definitely recommend it. It may not the best game, but it’s the best Transformer’s best game ever. More details here
