    Coolest Atmosphere 2010 - Limbo - Xbox 360 - IGN

    War for Cybertron has been nominated for the XBox 360 "Coolest Atmosphere" award, but it's up against stiff competition from Alan Wake, Limbo and Red Dead Redemption.

    It'll be interesting to see what wins out on that one. In my opinion just getting nominated is a huge victory!

    It would be so cool if War for Cybertron would actually be able to pull off a win! It bring alot of recognition to the game, but with bigger titles like Red Dead in there, I'm afraid we might not get so lucky.

    Still, I cast my vote for Cybertron, and I hope will others do the same. Can't wait for the results! :)

    There is no way this game deserves to win, given the competition.

    Yeah, no way this one's going to win. The atmosphere in the game was good, but not near as terrific as some of the other nominees.

    While cybertron was awesome, and better than many of those other games in terms of atmosphere, there is no way that it could beat Limbo. That game existed for amazing atmosphere and did so much with very little. Cybertron will allways beat anything with 'call of duty' on the cover though. I just don't care for 'real world' games.

    War for Cybertron is incredibly underrated. Hope it gets some mercy votes... the atmosphere is incredibly immersive and detailed and satisfies my long held curiosity of what Cybertron would look like.

    voted WFC on both, one thing Assassin's Creed II in a sci fi category? I don't get that at all. I understand for the machine involved but calling it Sci Fi seems a stretch at best.

    Sorry, but I played Red Dead Redemption, Limbo, and War for Cybertron, and being a transformers fan isn't enough for me to vote for it and ignore everything it did wrong, including atmosphere.

    War for Cybertron does not deserve awards. It's a decent game, an okay game, but it's sense of atmosphere was pretty much non-existant. atmosphere is not the same thing as "cool setting".

    I will say that it's more deserving than NBA 2K11. Why the hell is THAT there?

    As for Best Sci-fi game, yeah, NO. Mass Effect 2 exists, so Transformers is not going to win that, nor should it.

    WTF, guys WFC gave us an believable atmosphere that no other game has given us in a long time the closest thing i can think of is halo 2. a nice alien atmosphere ravaged by war whats not to love. im sorry but Black ops sux asss. there is literally nothing in that game that i havent done in others. If it wasnt for High Moon's Crap servers that would be my Fav online game ever.

    Agreed, its one of the most atmospheric games I've played in a long while. I'd put it up there with the best on that list. Very hard for me to choose between WFC, RDR and Alan Wake.

    It's because there are better games out there and in those particular categories for which it is nominated, it is up against far superior competition. Limbo smashes War for Cybertron in terms of atmosphere.

    Because it's Transformers doesn't mean I should blindly pledge my allegiance to it. When it comes to games, quality and enjoyment is what counts, not brand name marketing.

    War for Cybertron doesn't even deserve to be up against Mass Effect 2 in any category.

    While I don't think it's better than some of the other nominees, I'm still gonna vote for WFC since it's the underdog and I'm a TF fan.
