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 movies.
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.
Summary: This game is one of the best games you could play if you are a transformers fan. The story is pretty long. There are about 5 chapters for both the autobot and decepticon levels. Plus there are objectives in each level that makes each chapter about 45 minutes. The online playing is good too. The connection, gameplay everything about this game is awesome. It is a must buy.
Summary: When I first started this game I was astounded at what I found. I started the campaign backwards (I started with the autobot campaign when I should have started on the decepticon one for a real order of events), and I had a really hard time getting away from it. It looks like you'd expect cybertron to be like. There are actual metal clangs, and real gunfire sounds! They even used the transformers language on signs! The gameplay is excellent.
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.
