    I know there're other threads talking about ratings and what not, but I want to do them one better by allowing you, the gamer, to add your two cents. Please be honest with your feelings about the game, honesty is what the developers would want to hear, so let the words flow through your finger tips, but first, here are the latest ratings for Transformers: War For Cybertron from 10 gaming sites: *I will update the ratings as updates come in.

    Well,I gave a 5 purely based on the fact that it's the best transformers game we have seen,and thats what matters to me. Now sure, it could use some DLC, but I would say thats in the future.

    Gameinformer online gave it an 8.5. I give a 4 out 5. Would have been a 5 out of 5 if the roster was better and the servers didn't boot me half the time.

    I personally don't think this game deserves any less than an 8/10. It has its flaws, yes, but it's still an very fun, solid game.

    I voted 4, simply because it could be better.

    8/10. Could have used another month or two of polish to iron out the bugs like getting caught in scenery, falling through the map etc. Also needs host migration badly.

    If those things were fixed I'd give it an 8.5/10 easily.

    Well, the make or break for me is the multiplayer and i'm just not a big fan of it on this game. Maybe they could make it better with updates in the future but we need MORE people playing this game online.

    Needs more cowbell...


    Seriously though we need some more escalation maps and more chassis for MP. Also think that overshield should be banned in TD for realz. Looking forward to DLC.

    3, just mediocre. It's definitely not something I'd play for days in a row.

    I give it a 5 cause it is the best transformers game imo that has come out to date. I like the engine and am glad that high moon kept the characters close to their roots. Plus I like the fact that it looks like there could be a sequel :)

    Nothing less than a nine. It's a great game, just because it's not as great as Batman: AA or as lasting as MW2 doesn't change that.

    Hard to give it an honest review actually. Would say a 3.5 / 5 probably, it's hard being a fan.

    But with more practice in, and once getting used to all the little annoyances, a 4/5 for sure.
    Have to admit the game looked so much prettier when finally seeing it on my own tv.
    Youtube etc does it no justice. Pretty amazed by the level designs and all the atmospheric touches. Easy game to just stop and look for awhile.

    Im afraid to say this, but still not liking the robot designs much. Too much armor or something, and Megatron's face is hard to take serious lol
    The overall designs just seem cheap, even theough they still have tons of detail planted in them. Im sure the toys will change that feeling once they're all on my shelf :lol 

    Overall, while it feels like Unreal Tournament with robots, Im very sastified with it.
    Think it will be a good launching pad to build some even better Transformer games with.
    This is just practice for what's to come, but atleast they have a good foundation established for the ride.

    Been playing mutliplayer to Metal Health by Quiet Riot

    I give it 4 out of 5. Although I havent played online yet so I guess it could change. The main thing I want improvement on is melee combat. I want to be able to do combos or something to that effect. I dont like that you swing then have to put back your weapon before another melee. Also just a bit longer story mode, I like short games but this felt a little too short. Overall I love it though.

    Team overshield is a 5 kill perk for scientists.

    3. not bad. not great. average.

    I'll focus on the negatives since most people are probably going to just list the positives.

    I don't like it when cinemas on the PS3 have tons of compression artifacts all over them. blu-ray. no excuse. seriously. NONE.

    HUGE FOR THE SAKE OF HUGE character designs. hate it, hate it, hate it.

    Most decepticons look like a pile of rectangles and triangles haphazardly glued together.

    Many autobots do too, but less triangles.

    Textures are pretty awful at times. they look fine from a distance, but when you get a close-up, quite a few look really horrible. Prime's face is the worst offender (it also animates really badly) could be a style choice. if it is, I don't like it.

    Campaign is pretty short, and honestly isnt a whole lot of fun the second time through.

    Single player campaign AI is absolutely stupid. During the Autobot airship battle in the decepticon campaign, Skywarp and Thundercracker transformed at the start of the area, landed, and sat there the entire fight. This is only the worst AI offense in a very, very long list.

    Dark energon story is pretty dumb. Way to not really explain your plot device. Why is it Dark? Because it's bad. Why does it even exist if it's bad? because it needs to be a plot device. How does megatron control it? because megatron just can. no. seriously, why? because he's megatron? that's it? okay. gotcha.

    Starscream's switch to the decepticon side feels like it happens way too fast.

    MP character customization is painfully limited.

    BUT

    It's still fun. multiplayer is great. core gameplay is very, very satisfying. and I'm glad I bought it. 3 out of 5 isnt bad. it's average (to me). average isnt bad. but the people saying this is "this year's arkham asylum" just have me laughing.

    I had more fun with the Armada game, though.
