5.0 out of 5 stars Rock and Roll Out 15 July 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   

Well, where to begin? At the beginning, is probably best.

The Story:

Fans of the original G1 Transformers, rejoice. Transformers has finally come home; the story is set before the war on Earth, on Cybertron, shortly after Megatron, self-proclaimed leader of the Decepticons, has kicked off a planet wise civil war, that pits Cybertronian against Cybertroniann. Megatrons Decepticons aim to reforge Cybertron and its people into warriors and soldiers, to bring about their own 'New Order' to the planet, Galaxy and beyond. Standing against them are the Autobots, who are clinging desperately to their more peaceful way of life, and who are suffering for it in comparison to Megatrons more ruthlessly trained forces.

Single Player:

The Single Player is divided into two campaigns, but both are positioned on the same timeline. Chronologically, the Decepticon campaign comes first, followed by the Autobots.
As the Decepticons, you follow Megatron and his minions as they search for the secrets of 'Dark Energon' aboard an Orbital Station, confront Zeta Prime and try to wrench the Omega Key from his grasp, with the goal of dominating the heart of Cybertron itself.
In the Autobots campaign you take on the role of a field commander by the name of Optimus, and the troops around him, who begin to organise an effective resistance to Megatron, resuce comrades from a Decepticon Prison Centre, and confront some of the most deadly soldiers and weapons Megatron can throw at them.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than Meets The Eye 25 Jun. 2010
By BE20
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After the latest mediocre attemps of both the Transformers Michael Bay movie games, we were all wondering when we'd get a good Transformers video game experience. Thankfully, it's High Moon Studios to the rescue as they have created Transformers War For Cybertron. The best Transformers game in years and the best one ever made.

The story is set millions of years before the original G1 Transformers cartoon series, as Megatron is trying to use the power of Dark Energon to destroy the Autobots in their final attempt to rescue Cybertron. The story is fantastic. Many classic Transformers fans are going to fully enjoy this one. A lot of questions are answered like how Optimus became a Prime, how Megatron met Starscream and more. It's an absolutely explosive and action packed story that will keep you glued to your screen.

The game is a third person shooter much like Halo and Gears Of War. You carry and find many weapons to blast everything in sight, as well as the ability to transform into vehicle mode at any time. There's plenty of shooting to be had and the occasional platforming sections that feel just right. You'll be playing the Campaign mode with the Decepticons and Autobots sides each with an equal amount of chapters. You may play the campaign in single player or 3 player online co-op. It's a thrilling ride. Also there is online multiplayer where you and another team go head to head in a variety of multiplayer games, as well as being able to create your own Transformer out of 4 classes. Also there is a mode called Escalation where you take on wave after wave of enemies much like Gears Of War's Horde mode. There is plenty of modes here to keep you going for a long time.

The controls are spot on. You'll get into playing the game within a matter of seconds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 13 Jan. 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game for christmas and since then I have not played any other game other than this, and have not got bored at all after playing the same levels over and over again. This game has one of the best graphics I have ever seen, it is easy to pick up and does not have any blood and gore scenarios unless you count a blown up metal robot as one. The abilities and powers of each individual transformer seem endless and even the achievements are great. There are also tons of different platforms however they all look sort of similar since it is a planet made of metal. The only let down is the fact that even though each level lasts about an hour there are only 5 levels on each campaign making 10 levels altogether, however they are still great to play over and over again. Altogether I think this game is fantastic and I can't wait to play Fall of Cybertron and all the others that are bound to come next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Transformers 80's style 15 Aug. 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game in my eyes has revived the transformers franchise, If you liked the original series and the film from the 80's then you will love this game as i have.
Ok so the only difference is how megatron looksbut all the other transformers look as they did when the series first started and to be honest it works the new look of megatron just makes him seem over all more evil and bulky.
From the beginning of the game there are quotes from the original film, i wont say what but you will know them when you hear them.
Game play think gears of war meets a kind of halo, dont worry no overly jumpy players i mean more the movement, you can transform anywhere and at anytime.
Likemost of you problys did i played the first Transformers game on the ps2 you know the one with the mini cons and that game was soul destroying, this game brings it back, the combat makes you feel like you are in the original film all over again, from hords of enemies either desepticon or autobot this game ha it all weapons fast paced action everything a good shooter needs. This game has went as far as made me buy all the old series on dvd trust me get it you wont be disapointed there is a reason this game is rare and it because every1 who buys it wont let go of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game!
Great game and was worth every penny. The only down side to the game is the lack of players playing online, not hard to join a game but turns out to be laggy mostr of the time.
