Summary: Having played both High Moon titles Transformers titles WFC is the more compelling game to leave feedback on, hence I'll begin with the bot's and con's (see what I did there? Me neither). This game is the most authentic in terms of character, background story and feeling towards Transformers Generation 1, Cybertron genuinely feels alive and vibrant amid the midst of a brutal civil war.
Summary: I usually don't like licensed video games. but the transformers games, I usually find ranging from decent to perfect. in WFC's case, it's perfect. The story is very well written for the game. I liked going back to Cybertron and seeing this incarnation of how the Transformers left Cybertron. In all honesty, I find this plot more enjoyable than any of the movies, as much as I like the I usually don't like licensed video games.
The War Seems Lost, If This Sitrep is Any Indication

Summary: Oh, War for Cybertron. I had such high hopes for you. Everyone acted like Fall of Cybertron was pretty much the same game, so I figured you would have been a cheap alternative that would be just as good. How wrong I was... If reviews and fan reactions are any indication, WfC is clearly of the same case as Star Wars: Battlefront. Rose tinted memories of a franchise seem to be pretty powerful at overwhelming any acknowledgment at how badly aged or made any game is.
A true, but flawed start to the new Transformers video game line

Summary: For a long time, there wasn't any really good transformers games with the exception on the 2004 PS2 game based on Armada. This is where they went right. They got high moon, went creative, and created this game. There is nothing wrong with aiming as it feels smooth. You have the very freedom to transform at anytime without the controls being screwy. The multiplayer is balanced where it takes skill to win, not reliance on Killstreaks.
Summary: I really liked playing this game. I am a big Transformers fan and I literally jumped off my seat when I heard about this game. The controls work really well and are easy to pick up. The story of the Autobots and Decepticons before they got to Earth is very interesting. The shooting is tight and fast-paced. People say that the environments aren't good, but I though that they worked nicely considering how little of Cybertron we have seen in TV shows.
Summary: I loved this game. One of the first transformer games I have played but I still love it. Pretty good graphics. Great sound and gameplay, and I nail biting story that will leave you itching to know what is going to happen next. The game looks a little like a cartoon but other than that it looks really good and is very addicting. Th game is pretty easy when you are on the easy difficulty but it is a place to start.
Summary: This game was great as a co-op campaign. We had a little trouble getting connected at first because we used the game through Steam and our co-op IDs had to match our Steam IDs, something it doesn't tell you but that in retrospect should have been obvious I guess :D There was a nice mixture of difficulty and teamwork, although some of the gameplay gets a bit repetitive. My only real This game was great as a co-op campaign.
