    No offense taken. And you do make a valid critique.
    It’s kind of like deciding which is better between 2D & 3D games: there’s plenty of great stuff to be had in both types of games.
    I do like the open world of Armada, but the linear structure of WFC & FOC is great too.

    I got a great deal of enjoyment from the Xbox 360 Revenge of the Fallen game. I enjoyed it more than FoC and WFC, thats for sure.

    One not listed here is the tie in game for the first movie.

    Free roam + fluid controls + engaging gameplay?

    The graphics were also ahead of it's time.

    Out of the games I've played, I'd give the win to Fall of Cybertron. It was just a really good game, and is probably one of my favorite video games of all time. Oh, and the VGA Trailer still gives me chills to this day.

    WfC (I think it had a better sandbox than FoC)

    RoTF (Fluid gameplay, lots of unlockables and plenty of replay value)

    WFC and FOC got a lot of things right, both story- and gameplaywise, so they're sort of "definite" Transformers games out there. I haven't played the 07 movie game or ROTF game, but they seem to get some love around here and they definitely seem rather fun.

    But hey, the Armada game for PS2 was simply amazing. Alright, it was titled just "Transformers", but anyway, it was such a fun game. It was great to roam around in that one. One of the few reasons I regret not having PS2 for, otherwise I've been pretty content with sticking to Nintendo for the most part. :D

    For the DS, my votes are for War For Cybertron: Decepticons and Revenge of the Fallen: Decepticons.

    War for Cybertron of course. It's gameplay mechanic way more better than Fall of Cybertron.

    For all the WAR AND FALL of cybertron fans

    have a few questions

    as I just bought both Fall and War for cybetron for my boy who was asking for it for Easter .

    is the ultra magnus , dinobot, ect, DLC packs only workable in multiplayer modes? and not single ? I would love to play those characters but if they are only available in multiplayer online battles I may skip it because there is only like 7 people online it says and none of them join in so my boy can never do multiplayer

    also

    my boys online name is RyunosukeM please add him if you are playing so he can join in on the multiplayer games, I might too if I have time LOL

    and if you know of when or where I can get with other people so he can play , please advise

    Yes, Ultra Magnus and the Dinobots are only playable in Multiplayer (Grimlock is an exception given the campaign).

    For me, I’m on Xbox. I’ve learned that the best times to be playing these games are during the afternoon/evening.

    However, WFC is essentially dead as it’ll go for days without any Multiplayer lobbies. FOC on the other hand usually has 1-2 matches active on average.

    Also, be wary of any cheaters/modders. They’re more common on WFC. It’s best to avoid them as they ruin the fun and tarnish these games’ good name.

    Unfortunately, these games aren’t cross-play compatible, meaning players from different platforms can’t connect and play with each other.

    If you’re looking for PC players, check out Johnny Flash on YouTube. He is basically the pillar of the Transformers PC community. Also, if you use Discord, he has a server dedicated to these games. You can play with all kinds of players ranging from PC, Xbox, and PlayStation (mainly PC). It’s really easy to make friends and ask people to join you in matches.

    As for cheaters/modders, they come in many different forms as they’re a lot of in-game mechanics to take advantage of. If you see anything over the top (like spamming Orbital Beacon 2.0 or getting rained by Omega Missiles left and right), you should probably take it as a sign.

    Yeah. It feels like fall of cybertron but with a tf prime/rid aesthetic.

    Then it really is a shame Hasbro pulled the plug.
