Ok, making great progress through the game. I'm already to Chapter 11 out of 13. I'm stuck in this Starscream level. The diamond arrow has taken me to the last of the towers that Shockwave needs to plant an EMP at, but it won't let me in the tower. I can't figure out what to do. Any suggestions?

Love the game so far. Lots of fun.

I've been uploading a playthrough on You Tube so I haven't gotten very far at all. I'm still on the Cliffjumper level because I refuse to play without recording, but I don't feel like setting up my crappy camera... I have been playing Multiplayer though. I like it a lot better than WFC's multiplayer. I'm not sure I like it as much as the ROTF game's multiplayer though. I loved that game's multiplayer.

There is a hole in the roof of the building. There's a scanner bot in there too, so be careful.

Also be aware I got hit with a glitch there. I died as the bomb went off, and the game registered that the terminal was hacked, but didn't give me the next step in that achievement.

Ooooooh, you're getting to the really fun part.

Speaking of Starscream's stage, I found the coronation crown. It's in a high-up room on one of the spires.

Turned out to be a bug. The tower wouldn't let me in from the top or from the main door (which remained closed). Upon resetting the game and going back through the entire Starscream chapter, the error didn't happen again and I was able to gain access into the tower. I should've recorded the error somehow. It was extremely frustrating that it was a bug and not something I was doing wrong.

On to chapters 12 and 13 today!

There are a lot of bugs, every single one of them are frustrating. However, all of the ones I've encountered have been fixable by restarting the chapter. Except the Multiplayer bug where you get stuck in place. That's fixable by dying.

When Starscream first reappeared and surprised the poor generic decepticons, how long did wait before pressed the button to take him out. Saw a vid that shows that if you don't do anything he will keep freaking out and trying to talk his way out of it for a comically good while.

Just finished Transformers Fall of Cybertron campaign mode. Wow was that an amazing end to this game. High Moon Studios really knocked this out of the park. Grimlock was awesome to play. Battle between Optimus and Megatron at the end was very epic.

You have to watch the credits at the end. There's nothing new story wise, but HMS had some fun with the characters throughout the credits. Metroplex playing with the Transformers and Bumblebee dancing to Soundwave in boom box mode were my favorites.

This is the first game that I've completed from start to finish since Resident Evil 2 waaay back in 1998 on the Playstation. This game was a blast. Thanks High Moon Studios!

So I've finished the game and it was EPIC! It really felt like playing through an awesome movie! Ok, but I have one minute gripe that is a SPOILER for anyone who has not played through at least level 5.

I'm pretty sure that one of the videos posted about the game awhile back showed Grimlock, Slug, Swoop and Snarl looking into a hologram/computer screen at an apatosaurus/brontosaurus. If I remember correctly, Grimlock was saying it could serve as an alternate form for Sludge. After playing the game, this makes since because he's in stasis or whatever. I totally expected to see this at the end of the credits to get people thinking/talking about what happened tot he Dinobots, but...nothing! Does anybody remember this video, what it's called, etc.?

Also, High Moon's next project should be a Dinobots add on that allows you to play as all 5 bots that tells the story that bridges from FOC to Prime (or whatever else follows for our favorites Dinobots!).

Edit: So, I've been trudging (happily) through Seiberton's old posts relating to FOC Dinobots and I found the video that I was talking about.

It's here around the 2:13 mark or so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvxl3-F4 ... ded#at=136

Did anybody else ever see this video? I was expecting it at the end as a "Meanwhile back on Cybertron" kind of thing. I may have just missed it in Grimlock's level though. No big deal, I'll be playing it through several more times over the coming weeks either way!

I know there's a Dinobot DLC coming out that allows you to play them in Multiplayer, but not Single Player.

On a side note, I just beat the game about an hour ago. w00t. Was not disappointed at all.

Also, to those of you having problems with a stuck in place glitch, try jumping and dashing constantly. Spam the hell out of it. Works to get me out; However, I'm playing on the PC, so might be different for those of you on consoles.

POTENTIAL SPOILERS!

You can find that Sludge hologram in the blast shield room in the Grimlock level, among other things on the computer terminals.

So I suck at this game ... majorly.

And i'm stuck. Going after the third cannon with Metroplex, have to cross the bridge, but it's blocked. How do I get across the bridge?

In the end credits (For PS3 at least) There is a shot of all 5 dinobots. Completed the game last night, Epic does not begin to describe this game. Took me 5 days to run through the campaign on Hard. I was very impressed with the storyline and quite frankly loved chapters 11 and 12. Leaves enough room for some games happening in the gap between the crash and the start of Gen 1. Overall I loved it and look forward to finding the rest of the goodies.

If you're still stuck, that part's a bitch. There's like, one part of the bridge you can hit it from, far right and forward. You will be rewarded for the annoyance.

completed campaign a few days after the game was released. Loved it, especially the voice acting. Got all trophies a few weeks ago. Working on maxing out multiplayer classes in Prime mode now. Getting close. Still planning to play the game on campaign, mp, and escalation even after maxing out. Feel free to add me (PSN): tornadosmith - I like using a mic for clean conversation and strategy. Fun game, really pleased with all the fan service in it.
