Great Successor to War for Cybertron,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Activision Blizzard Inc 84336 Transformers Fall of Cybertron (Video Game)
If you loved War For Cybertron, you will love this one even more. Everything about this game is better than the first. You get better graphics, better gameplay, and the story is just awesome. It's a short game and I completed it on normal in about 6-7 hours. Some people miss the co-op campaign but I think it was removed for the better. Each character now has a special set of challenges that wouldn't have been possible with co-op. You really do get more diverse gameplay.
The multi-player mode is vastly improved and all the maps are fun. They are not too big but big enough to offer a challenging landscape. With endless customization everyone can have their own unique look. High Moon is going to release a lot of DLC for characters so save up some money if you are into that sort of thing.
The only thing I would say is a downgrade is Escalation. My friend and I loved to play that horde mode and we could play for hours. The new escalation mode is limited to 15 waves, and we beat all those maps the first time we played. The AI is a lot smarter, and now they don't bum rush, but instead they hide behind walls and shoot, or snipe you from a distance. it's definitely a lot harder, and if you play it on hard, it is a challenge. You can now upgrade your weapons and the whole team receives the upgrades, but the level 4 upgrade costs 10,000 points. You can't even get that many points to level up to Lvl 4 until wave 13 of 15. I really hope they unlock the horde mode to unlimited waves.
All in all, this is an awesome game and High Moon did the TF community proud. It's got special touches that many older fans will appreciate. I highly recommend this game.
