Toy-based sci-fi robotic brawler gets repetitive.

Common Sense Media
23 August 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that while Transformers: War for Cybertron is violent, it is a sci-fi brawler between robots. In this war between machines, you can shoot at or whack enemies and watch as they explode, but there is no blood or gore.

  • Summary: Transformers: War for Cybertron is this year’s Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: It's packed to the rafters with pure continuity porn, with dozens of characters, hundreds of references, and that "tch-tch-tch" transformation sound. War for Cybertron is like the Transformers: The Movie prequel that never happened.

Xbox Evolved
24 July 2010
  • Summary: Overall, this is the first truly fun, substantive Transformers game that succeeds in also being a love letter to fans of the Transformers universe. It isn't a quick cash-in or a movie tie-in game.

  • Cons: : Multiplayer isn’t that unique or fun, color scheme makes it sometimes to see what is attacking you
