It is not a true third person shooter, the best way to describe it is that it is more like the Time Crisis games. Basically the game automatically moves you from shooting gallery to shooting gallery. The only time that you can actually control the character's movement is when the game automatically transforms you into alt mode and you have to drive (or fly) to the next shooting gallery.

The game itself is not horrible (I liked the Time Crisis games) but the game is pretty easy, and the graphics are really sub-par when compared to the vids I've seen for the other consoles.

Sorry, I wasn't planning on going into that much depth, but hopefully my opinion is helpful to someone. Like I said, the game itself is not horrible, but I'd wait until the price comes down. $20 would be a reasonable price to pay for the Wii version.


That's why I never got a Wii. Graphics are substandard across the board and I like graphics. If I were Nintendo, I'd be really worried about the new motion controllers for the other systems.

Ah, I loved TIme Crisis, though not owning and game systems, I've only played it at theme parks etc.
Anyhow, if/when I get a DS, I'll be getting it for that, I hope it's awesome. It sure looks like it will be.

I don't own the game just yet, but I will Thursday night. I'm a PC guy and folks have complained about the lack of customizable controls. People like me wondered if you could use the 360 controls, and it's now been confirmed that you can use it.

Here are the posts, and they give their yays and nays on the game itself:

I love every bit, went out and got a preorder from Gamestop and an Xbox just for this, I am not dissappointed. The graphics are awesome, the characters are awesome, the fighting is awesome.

I'm currently spending the rest of summer playing this with a fusion cannon in one hand and a MTn Dew in the other.

Here's what I want to know. About the pre-oder codes, are they Xbox Live codes you enter in the guide, or are they codes you enter at the main menu, start menu, etc., that can be shared between people? I'm hoping for the latter, but given my experiences with most pre-order bonuses this seems unlikely.

Someone please clear this up for me?

Although I don't even own the game yet (or the platform I want it on), I'm giving it infinity thumbs up. I still don't see any thoughts on the XBox versionm because that's the version I would like. My best friend was able to try out the demo download, and he said it was great, but I would like to hear others opinions. Curses to anyone who diss this game! :P :lol:

Amazing game! Simply phenomenal! :APPLAUSE:

The campaigns are fun, especially when you're playing Co-Op with friends. The multiplayer is really fast paced, so even if you're good, be prepared to die quick! I had a feeling I wouldn't be a monster in this game like I am in Revenge of The Fallen, and I'm not, in fact, I even got my skidplate handed to me a few times the first couple of matches. But I am improving quick, leveling up, and am now winning more matches quite efficiently. :) This games multiplayer is a vast improvement over RoTF's, and RoTF had great multiplayer to begin with (in my opinion), so with the good campaigns and multiplayer, especially since the multiplayer is balanced unlike RoTF (yeah, thanks a lot Jazz and Sideswipe), I agree with IGN's rating of a solid 9.0! I love it High Moon, nice work! :D

I've just got done playing the first campaign of it. First and foremost the artwork and graphics are stunning! I'm having just as much fun with this as I did batman. Gameplay is freakin awesome, so much better then the other stuff that has been out. Really, REALLY impressed with what they did with this game and the story. It really gets you into the game, you totally get lost in it.

Alright, I got this game for my 360, and I have to say, I love it so far!

Now, I can't say I'm really good at game reviews or anything like that, but I am definitely having fun with this game. My only complaints are rather minor, and really more opinion based then about any real issue with the game. I personally suggest changing the control scheme so that transforming is linked to the "y" button instead of clicking the left stick down. Through the first level, I kept inadvertently transforming in the middle of battle, and getting myself confused. I think it also would have been nice to have a quick playable tutorial level. After reading the instructions and some trial and error, the controls were easy to use, but I still had to look at the instruction booklet a few times to keep it all straight. But, like I said, minor complaints! I really couldn't put this game down for a quite a few hours, and I can't wait to do some online multiplayer!

I've already seen/heard a few homages, too. Off the top of my head, Megatron's "I still function!" line to Starscream made me smile a lot. They've got some really good banter and one-liners in there; especially when the Seekers are together.

So, my vote is 5 out of 5! Definitely worth the money and the wait, and a great addition to the TF universe! ... and I think Bumblebee is just slagging awesome in this game XD

This game is AMAZING! It exceeded my already high expectations. The fan-service is awesome! (Tell me you didn't flip when you played the Soundwave boss battle) WFC is the most fun I've had in a long time. I just hope that we get another one.

Hey Seibertron, if you're reading this, I got an awesome idea; we could hold monthly tournaments and whoever wins could hold the title of "Autobot/Decepticon Leader of the Month" or something like that, and the prize is like, um, Energon for the Heavy Metal War game or something. Just an idea I'm throwing out there! :lol:

Awesome game. Transformers: War For Cybertron is like being in the 80's cartoon and excellent grafix. The sound (I have surround sound) is perfect and I hope will be asecond part of the game (Transformers: War on Earth?). The movie could be as good as the game is. And hopefully Grimlock will be Transformers 3. SEIBERTRON.COM is my favorite and numero uno site there is. Keep up the work guys!

I love this game.

First off I am not a fan of most shooters. But can not get over how well this game plays. I have not got into the campaigns enough to provide feedback, but mutiplayer rocks. The classes seemed designed to appeal to differnt play styles and you have to play around with them to find the one that suites you and when you find it the game expands to new levels of enjoyment.

Last week I got a 60 inch tv.
Today I got War for Cybertron.
The result of this combination has rendered me unable to experience real emotion outside of this game. The entire world is less awesome by comparison. Now I know what those blue-painted woodland nerds in Wisconsin feel.

Man, oh, man! This game is AAAAH-Mazin'!!! I couldn't put the controller down!! I played for 8 hours straight and the long length of the levels is actually pretty nice. The gameplay is great, I dint have a prob with it it at all. The limited amo and health that u can't get back just by talkin cover actually gives the game a challenge, unlike the movie games which didn't do this and were a breeze. The graphics are superb on mah PS3. And the story is great, it was thought through well. I love all the characters, especially Breakdown and his constant whining xD and multiplayer is MUCH better than expected, it's actually fun and easy to work with. I would reccomend this game to anyone, if ur a tf fan or not, you will love this game :BOT:

Motto: ""Immortality shall come to such as are fit for it.""
Weapon: Ion Pulse Guns
:KREMZEEK: QUICK REVIEW:

7/10 - *******

GAMEPLAY: Wow!, what a fun game. The pacing is near-perfect for what is expected of the franchise (that being giant robots at war for thousands of years), and the combat physics makes sense; depending on just what kind of ammunition or energy you get hit with you either get downed in combat and can still target and destroy enemies, fall to the ground offline, or blow up on the spot into shrapnel shards and dissipating Energon. The level design is enough to make you either think ahead or just plain try to understand how a mechanical world is constructed and functions; the levels have yet to get boring or too tedious, or insane for no reason other than it could be -- everything that happens happens for a reason, whether through incident or narrative. Even when things seem difficult, there is better way to handle things once you start to think creatively. ****

GRAPHICS: The game only outputs a picture quality of 720p (and it shows), however it does get the job done and allows for improvement in a later sequel. Robot design is both unique and evocatative, harkening back to The Transformers 1984 roots while still paying homeage to so many other incarnations (even the recent film series in certain respects, but always in the most fan-friendly, manageable ways) enough for all manner of fan to enjoy. Metal textures have the proper sheen and battle damage/degredation a combat-weary lifeform/locale needs to. There is a grittiness here that TransFans and hardcore gamers will never stop loving, and indeed left me and other fellow players wanting more. ***

Motto: ""I'm stronger than I look, but not as strong as I think I am.""
Weapon: Laser Rifle
I picked up the game today and immediately installed it on my current computer. It played moderately well. I went through I think most of the first Decepticon mission and decided I had to give it up because the computer is barely handling it. My new one is still being built by a friend of mine.
But from what I have played I'm rather enjoying it. I plan on doing all the missions as each available character to get the feel for each class and their abilities. The game encourages the player to go through the campaign first before going on-line. :-?
Whatever.
I'm definitely enjoying this game more on the computer than the 360 platform. Incidently, the Gamestop where I purchased the game had only one copy of the gameguide. So I scooped it up.
It seems to me to be one of those mindless first person shooters like Serious Sam. I love those games from time to time. Sometimes I don't feel like applying my brainwork so it's all good to me. On the other hand, there were times when I did have to think.
At times I didn't know what to do to keep the game moving but thats good too. It made me do some looking around and scouting. Since I was on the first mission with Megs watching me, I didn't want to take too long before he beat my tailpipe into the ground.
With there being a limit to your ammunition I found it interesting how the side effect is having to swap weapons and even transform to alt mode in order to keep blasting at your opponents. This is a good thing in order to learn several aspects of each class and their abilities. I'm not resorting to stepping in with an itchy trigger finger and getting bored from monotony.
I can't wait to get my souped-up computer and play this game at it's full potential.

One question: Is it just me or did everyone get to watch cut scenes in black and white? Either thats how the cutscenes were done or my graphics card isn't up to snuff (I know it did better than my sound card).
