User Rating: 9 | Transformers: War for Cybertron PC
I dont like anything that has been done with the Transformers franchise in the last 20 years. Having said that you can imagine how leary I was about giving this game a chance but I ended up being pleasantly surprised by it. Fans like me who are stuck in the G1 era actually have something to smile about here. First off the designs of the robots more closely resemble the original versions which was a step in the right direction. Secondly many elements of the presentation down to just how the characters posed while standing were based on the G1 tradition. I will admit that it was odd to have soundwave as a vehicle rather than a tape recorder but I was able to overlook that. The gameplay is what one would expect from a transformers game; running around, shooting things with advanced weaponry, transforming and driving around. What really makes this game special is the presentation of the story and the design of cybertron. The developers did a great job bringing you into the world of the transformers using sound and the environments to bring the action to life. If you are a purist like me you wont regret giving this one a shot.
