Fall of Cybertron or War For Cybertron this is not
on 27 June 2014
OK, so I saw a lot of negative reviews for this which made me hesitant to get it, but as a huge Transformers fan, I just decided I'd go for it, and I'm glad I did.
Is it pretty? No. It's actually a little worse looking than Fall of Cybertron on PS3, and this is on PS4!
There are frequent pauses in gameplay as it loads the next part of the level, voice acting & script varies in quality, the generic bots you smash through are as generic as they were in the other two games....BUT, it essentially plays the same as War for, and Fall of, Cybertron. Which is a good thing, because those games were a lot of fun, so far the story isn't even comparable to those games, there is only one (!) multiplayer mode : Escalation. Which is disappointing as I loved playing Team Deathmatch in the previous games.
Is it worth the current price? Eh...probably not, but it is fun. There's no advantage to getting this on PS4 or XBONE so if you still have last gen console you're probably better off getting it on that (and waiting for a price drop).
Story wise it seems set between the 2 previous (non-film related) games, which can be...odd, at times. But yeah, worth checking out, I'm hoping they add more multiplayer options in DLC/Updates, oh, also : Grimlock is not a playable Character anymore judging from the selection screen in Escalation.
