Wait, Transformers: War For Cybertron Is Great?
In my Ones To Watch for June I figured I’d shine a little ray of hope on Transformers: War for Cybertron on the PS3: “And why not, Transformers: War for Cybertron could be good.” It turns out I was wrong because it’s apparently great!
IGN has awarded it a 9.0 “Outstanding review”, and 1Up has given it a B+ score. I took a few minutes to watch the IGN video review and was surprised to hear that three-player campaign co-op is also included in the game alongside the fast-paced head-to-head multiplayer modes.
Hasbro has even blessed this game as official Transformers canon. It’s set during the Autobot-Decepticon war on Cybertron so it apparently fills in some history for fans of the Generation 1 cartoons from back in the 1980s. Things like how Optimus became Optimus Prime (voiced by the one and only Peter Cullen) and how Starscream joined the Decepticons are apparently part of this story. Check out the reviews and the trailers on the PlayStation Store (and probably XBLA as well) to see for yourself. Maybe you’ll see a robot you remember fondly from your own youth. Omega Supreme anyone?Tags: playstation 3, transformers: war for cybertron
