6 Cybertron Transformers Titles
A video game publisher Activision released the War for Cybertron series (2010-2014). It depicts the conflict between two factions. The shooters offer to control either the Autobots or Decepticons.
Transformers: War for Cybertron
For PS3, Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360.
A 2010 on-screen toy by High Moon Studios. The graphics are well designed and resemble original cartoons in style. The adventure uses cover mechanics for more frantic wide-open battlefields. Filled with vicious melee attacks and cool transformations, it was well-received.
Transformers: Cybertron Adventures
A 2010 visually striking rail-shooter with a good sense of depth. Audio aspects are also high-grade, with everything sounding heavy and metal. Shoot at enemies and duck behind cover to restore health or to adjust your weapons. Although critics didn’t give it a high rating, it is a fun adventure to enjoy.
Transformers: War for Cybertron – Autobots and Transformers: War for Cybertron – Decepticons
For Nintendo DS.
Released by Vicarious Visions in 2010. Here you play for both factions, learning their stories and motives. Complete linear missions, kill enemies, unlock characters and upgrade your gear and stats. Decent visuals and animations have won positive reviews for the adventure.
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron
For PS3/4, Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, Xbox 360.
A 2012 game with a bigger world and set of tasks. It is a significantly improved continuation of the story, with polished visuals and attack options. And a stronger character-driven campaign. All that helped it to become the best title with the highest rating.
Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, 2014
For Nintendo 3DS, Microsoft Windows, PS3/4, Xbox 360, Wii U, Xbox One.
The shooter failed to win a good reputation. For example, IGN gave it a “bad” rating – 4/10. This review aggregator noted good graphics and bright textures. But it wasn’t enough to make it a decent Cybertron Transformers game. No epic boss encounters, blank campaigns with boring missions, and uneven difficulty. And unsatisfying vehicle transformations and combat.
