I am having an absolute blast with the game. The campaign in great, and has a ton of variety, it's also challenging and makes you have to think about how you engage the enemy. Rushing headlong into a group of enemies like you could get away with in WFC will more than likely get you killed. Using your different forms and cover, as well as abilities and weapons and upgrades from the Teletraan Store to your advantage is key, and vital if you want to survive. And I can't tell you how awesome it feels to play as Grimlock!
Voice acting is superb, with several great lines, and there's also plenty of stunning visual set pieces.
For multiplayer, I love the customization, I can truly make my own character that stands out from the rest. The combat is over the top crazy fun, which I think suits giant robot combat, especially the Transformers. There are 10 maps that are all very different, but nice to explore and fun to fight on. There are not as many game modes, only four, and I miss deathmatch, but oh well. There is Team Deathmatch, Conquest, Capture the Flag, and Head Hunter. We all know the other three modes quite well, being classic game types in multiplayer games. Head Hunter, however, requires you to kill enemies and take their Sparks, then drop them off at a node to score points. It's like Kill Confirmed in MW3 you could say, only you have to do something besides just pick up the "dogtags" (Sparks).
Escalation is fun, but you really have to work as a team if you want to get far. Just getting past Wave 1 on any difficulty is a challenge. It would be nice to be able to choose any character you want, but High Moon made it to where each character fulfills a specific role, which is okay with me. Every team has a fighter that's meant to take the most punishment and dish it, a medic with a heal beam, a support character with a sentry turret, and another support character that provides an ammo beacon with a damage boost. enemy AI and strength are no joke, in the later waves there are enemies who can annihilate you if you aren't careful. There's only fifteen waves, but they get so hard that you'll probably be relieved when it's over. Key to survival here is to stay together, keep moving, and keep getting new weapons and abilities to aid you. All in all, I'm liking this new Escalation a little better than WFC's, though it was also fun seeing how many waves you could conquer.
Overall, I have been getting more enjoyment out of FoC than I did WFC, and I loved that game. Sure, there can be some technical glitches like the last games, and there are a few things from WFC that were omitted that I miss, but the more I play and have fun I start to forget about those small gripes. In my opinion, FoC takes a 9/10, it's great fun and fan service, and would even be enjoyable for the non-TF fan.
How about you guys?
