Opinions?
It does not. Beast Wars is a Primax series, tied with G1 material (most prominently the G1 cartoon).

WFC is not a Primax game, as it is part of the modern aligned continuity with the Exodus novel and Prime cartoon.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Drastically different from WFC, but a decent read. It basically establishes the world of the modern Transformers fiction (excluding the movies), even though it does contain a few errors and quibbles. Notably, it is only vaguely similar to the WFC video game, but it's best for one to read it himself to make his own unbiased opinion about it.

As for how WFC doesn't tie in with G1 (or Beast Wars), look here and here for more info.

Everything you just said happened in G1 first. G1 BEGINS with the Ark crash-landing on Earth after being boarded by the Decepticons.

And if it doesn't tie into G1 (Which, as explained before repeatedly, WfC does not) it doesn't tie into Beast Wars.

unless the fix the mp problems that plagued the original i cant see it being much of a success but at least we might get more than 4 new molds dedicated to the characters


In wfc during the level "to the core" just outside "the core" in the lake of energon area optimus and ironhide engage in some banter in which iron hide says "by the way optimus, it's nice to see you step up and be the leader I always knew you could be, what took you so long?"

optimus's response is "that is a story for another time..."

i bet wfc 2 is that story!

Or, since Exodus is also getting a sequel, and since chapters 16-39 were (loosely) adapted from WFC, I'd say that the WFC sequel's plot will be basically similar to that of the Exodus sequel.

Go read it ASAP. It's far from perfect and is really only a decent read, but it's still a must for anyone wanting to know the full backstory to the Transformers: Prime continuity.
