Transformers: War for Cybertron
9 June 2012
Excerpt: Transformers, you need to have lived under a rock for the last 20 years to know have heard about them. With two Michael Bay movies (90% explosions, 10% Megan Foxx booty shots and 0% story) just about any gamers knows about them.
Summary: Transformers: War for Cybertron
is a hard game to review. Looking at it through the lens of fond memories of days gone by, I find myself irrationally inclined to bestow it with a far higher mark than it realistically deserves.
Pros: G1 Transformers, and faithful to the lore of the cartoon (which like most of 80’s vintage, is in itself an admittedly cynical marketing tool to sell pre existing toys)., Well…it, is, the best Transformers game to date, for what that’s worth., Can play as your choice of Autobot or Decepticon, shou...
Cons: Even less impressive than other third person shooters on the market currently…and that’s saying something., Wholly reliant on nostalgia – without a strong affection for the brand marketing prior to purchase, this doesn’t have much of a leg to stand on.
Excerpt: Every child of the 80s wants to play a brilliant Transformers video game. The dream would be something based on the amazing movie, complete with rock soundtrack, cheesy dialogue and classic robot designs. Hotrod would pull apart the Matrix and I'd shed a tear as Optimus Prime turns grey and dies.
Conclusion: If there's any one thing that can be stated about Transformers: War for Cybertron, it’s that you should buy this game. The single player campaign is good, and the multiplayer portion is a surprise hit.
Excerpt: So many games these days are beholden to their licenses to such a degree that the fundamentals are either forgotten or thrown completely out the window. Transformers: War for Cybertron doesn't have that problem. In fact, it would have been fantastic even if it wasn't a Transformers game.
Excerpt: If there�s been one franchise that�s stumbled out of the gate more times than not in regards to video games, it�s the Transformers. They have been tossed into a series of mediocre games due to their recent emergence in modern cinema.
Review: TransFormers: War For Cybertron (Sony PS3)
3 August 2010
Excerpt: The first release we’ve gotten from Activision in the TransFormers line that’s not tied into a movie or tv show, War For Cybertron , is it’s own stand alone title meant to tie into pretty much any continuity you want to throw at it, be it the new live action movies, the old comics, the new comics,...
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I had a weekend to play around with Transformers: War for Cybertron on the PS3, and I was sure that I was not going to enjoy it at all. After all, the previous few games based on the Transformers haven’t exactly been the best.
Excerpt: Licensed games do not really have a good reputation as being good games, especially if they are based on movies. But occasionally you get a game that actually surprises you and turns out to be a rather good game. What is the secret to a licensed game’s success?
