Transformers : War for Cybertron Trailer
Story : The story takes place in Cybertron where Decepticons declare war and Autobots try to resist against them. The entire game takes place in the Autobot world Cybertron. There are two different campaigns in the game, the first one tells the story of the Decepticon uprise and the second campaign tells the story of the Autobots after the Decepticons' uprise.
Graphics : The graphics are pretty mediocre. I am sure it is still better than the console version, though there isnt much optimization and you do not have enough video settings to have better overall quality. Please note that the game is capped at 30 fps which is a terrible experience. However there is a fps unlocker specificely for this game that can be found in internet, and when you download this unlocker, you can play with any fps you like. If you want to play Transformers:War for Cybertron make sure to install this fps unlocker.
Gameplay : Transformers is a 3rd person action game where in each mission there are 3 characters to choose from. When you select a character, the other two characters still remain with you throughout the story and assist you in your fight. You rarely brake up from your fellow comrades. You mostly control ground vehicle based characters in the game, such as Megatron or Optimus Prime, however each campaign has one mission where you can control an airbased character such as Starscream. The gameplay overall is pretty basic, you just drive, fire, shoot and if you are close enough, you can hack and slash your enemy. You can transform into a vehicle or vice verse anytime you like, and by doing so your weapon changes to a vehicle specific one.
Sound : Nothing great, nothing bad about it. It is as mediocre as the graphics. However I should say that the voice actors of Megatron and Optimus Prime are the same voice actors from the cartoons and the movies. I personally get into the game more every time Optimus Prime talks.
Length : You can finish both of the campaigns in less than 10 hours on the hardest settings.
Multiplayer : The multiplayer game types are your typical death matches and capture the flag kind of missions, however it is pretty fun for a few rounds. I cant see anyone being hooked by the multiplayer for a long but from time to time I play a few rounds. Though I must admit that it is very difficult to find someone playing the game online.
Replay Value : I can not see myself coming back to single player again, and I am sure that the multiplayer will be deserted very soon.
3DVision : There isn't a 3D profile for this game in the Nvidia Control Panel, however the game was ok in 3D. You just need to set divergence accordingly. It is especially fun to play the game in 3D when you are in control of a flying autobot or a decepticon, but besides that the shader and crosshair problems will bug you after a while. I would rate the 3D effects of Transformers as "Fair".
Price : I can't recall how much I paid for this game via Steam Sales, however the game at the moment would not worth anything above 10$. If you are not a Transformer fan at all, that 10$ will even be too much.
