When I was a child, I was into the usual for a boy growing up in the early 90’s, Power Rangers, Nickelodeon, and the WB but it was one show that I loved with a passion and that was Transformers. I would travel in the summer to New Jersey to be with my Aunt and Uncle and it was there, that my cousin DJ Akoni would let me play with his set of transformer toys. He even had a Optimus Prime figure that now in extremely rare. In the TV show you saw the Transformers travel to earth, you saw Megatron and StarScream, have their hated bromance, to the father and son relationship of Spike and Sparkplug, the reluctant Optimus take the plunge of being the leader of the Autobots and Daring Heroics of Bumblebee, but where did it all start?
Enter War on Cybertron, Megatron and the Decepticons are hell bent on finding an evil source of energy called, dark energon, and with this power use the space station that it is hidden, to beam It to the core of Cybertron, there are only three obstacles, one being Starscream and Jetfire, Zeta Prime and his key to the core of Cybertron. So then on the Autobot side, something has happened to Zeta Prime and Bumblebee is asked to deliver to Opitmus and Ratchet, to get the defenses of the Autobot capital online during an onslaught from the dreaded Decepticons. There are many twist and turns in the story but you have to play to find out.
When playing the campaign Optimus and Megatron are the leaders of the party of Autobots or Decepticons, the game plays great, Transforming is a snap (finally) just click the L3 button, the weapons are spot on and certain bots have certain special moves and its and easy shift from ground and land missions but there is one problem. The A.I. Sometimes hiccups or it waits on you when your not the commander, and it feels like they pulled all the stops in the Decepticon Campaign for the boss battles for that campaign and then then just the levels in the Autobot Campaign, but still this is a must play for any fan of Transformers its is Light years and Star Clicks away from even the good Transformers on PS2 and the Trash of Movie Tie-in games that came out in the last 3 years. So what are you waiting for, close your browsers, turn your console on, boot up, pick your side and then Roll out.
Here the the debut trailer for the game.
