Fall of Cybertron is the sequel to War for
Cybertron and the game-play here feels very familiar (not
that it's a bad thing. If it ain't broke and all that...)
The graphics seems slightly better this time around--it feels
like things are more colorful and it's easier to tell characters
apart in fights and in-game interactions (in the first game the
background characters felt very generic). You get to have
Optimus Prime use Metroplex's weapons early-on in the game as a
remote-controlled assault weapon (which is useful and
neat!) Cool new character designs for Grimlock, Shockwave
and others also add to the appeal of the game.
To be honest, I didn't really try out the
multi-player parts of the game but I'm sure they're good (from
what I've heard).
I do hope that if there's eventually a third game
they change up the game mechanics a bit. Twice like this is good
but I'm not sure it would hold out for yet another go-around
(variety can be a good thing too).
Verdict:Excellent! A must-buy if you love
Transformers and/or video games.
