Transformers: War for Cybertron
29 July 2010
Summary: Long before they had the touch or the power, the Autobots and Decepticons were locked in a power struggle for control over Cybertron. This brand new Activision game attempts to tell this story. While this is hardly the best game of the year, Transformers: War for Cybertron shows that Activision is headed in the right direction when it comes to their games about giant robots! This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
Excerpt: Video games have long been my hobby, dating back all the way to the original Atari game system. Second only to video games is my enjoyment for collecting and watching Transformers – specifically Generation 1 Transformers from the mid 80’s. Unfortunately the two have never been able to successfully combine into any type of entertaining experience…until now.
Excerpt: Transformers: War For Cybertron isn’t more than meets the eye. It’s obvious in its ambitions, both as a game where players shoot stuff, and as a mash note to Generation Y-ers whose first religious experience was the martyring of a giant red robot who could turn into a truck. It does succeed on both fronts, but not unmitigatedly.
Conclusion: Fans of Transformers - real fans, the people with the cartoon series and die-cast toys - will probably get a huge kick out of the story behind Transformers. They might even get enough out of it to overlook the insipid level design, borrowed gameplay elements and sloppy AI. For everyone else though, Transformers: War for Cybertron is less than meets the eye.
Excerpt: På Cybertron krigas det, ordentligt. Faktum är att det krigas så pass mycket och ofta att frågan kan lyftas huruvida de båda fraktionerna av Transformers, Autobots och Decepticons, någonsin sysselsatt sig med något annat. High Moon Studios Transformers: War for Cybertron utspelar sig hur som haver i inbördeskrigets barndom, och spelaren kastas in i handlingen just när gamle burkhuvudet Megatron leder sina Decepticons i en attack mot en forskningsstation.
