Transformers: War for Cybertron is a third-person shooter video game developed by High Moon Studios and published by Activision. It was released on June 22, 2010 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Two portable versions were released for the Nintendo DS. A game for the Wii called Transformers: Cybertron Adventures was developed by Next Level Games and utilizes the same characters and setting as War for Cybertron. Hasbro also has a toy line releasing in 2010 based on War for Cybertron. The multiplayer demo was released on June 10, 2010 for the Xbox 360 and allows players to experience either "Soldier" or "Scout" class warriors.
Transformers: War for Cybertron is a third person shooter that takes place prior to the Transformers: Prime animated series, when the Transformers still lived on the fictional machine planet Cybertron. The game has two distinct campaigns, one for each faction. The story of the Decepticon campaign is a prelude to the Autobot campaign's story. Both campaigns can be played in single-player or cooperatively via online multiplayer, and can drop in or out of the game at any time. Each campaign level features three playable Transformers. If fewer than three players are present, the game's AI controls the remaining playable characters. Cooperative and competitive modes of the game are limited to online play, with no split screen features available.
War for Cybertron has several multiplayer modes to choose from. "Escalation" is a mode for exclusive pre-order characters and characters unlocked during the campaign. Non-stop waves of robots attack until the player(s) are defeated, similar to Gears of War "Horde" mode, Call of Duty: World at War "Nazi Zombies" and Halo 3: ODST "Firefight". Players are also able to spend points earned from defeated enemies on health, ammo, new weapons and unlocking new areas in the map. "Deathmatch" is a free-for-all game type where the player with the most kills at the end of the game is the winner. In "Team Deathmatch" players are divided into Autobot and Decepticon teams. The winning team is the one who earns the most kills. "Conquest" is a capture-and-hold style game, similar to the conquest mode found in the Star Wars Battlefront series. In "Countdown to Extinction" players must take an active bomb and place it at an enemy base, similar to the Assault mode in the Halo series. "Power Struggle" is the game's equivalent to the common King of the Hill game type. Finally "Code of Power" is a mode consisting of two and a half minute rounds where teams vie for a giant melee weapon.
Competitive multiplayer games do not allow use of canon Transformers. Players must create their own Transformer based on the class they wish to play which determines their vehicle form. They may then choose a specific look for that form, and customize the color scheme, weaponry and abilities they take into battle. Classes include a "Leader" class, a "Soldier" class, a "Scientist" class, and a "Scout" class, each with unique abilities, vehicular transformation, and weapon loadouts. Scouts are cars, Leaders are trucks, Scientists are jets and Soldiers are tanks. The multiplayer aspect also features a experience and leveling up system, including perks, and upgrades.
The setting is the planet Cybertron before contact is made with the planet Earth. The native sentient beings are at war with one another. A group of like minded robots have split off of the main faction to become Decepticons under their leader, Megatron. The leader of the Autobots, Zeta Prime, is killed leaving behind an inexperienced leader: Optimus, who must lead his forces to prevent Megatron from finding the legendary "dark" energon. The Decepticon story is told in the first five chapters of the game, while the Autobot story is told in another five chapters following directly onward from the Decepticon story. Despite this, players may choose to start either campaign first regardless of chronological order.
The plot of Transformers: War for Cybertron is set long before the events of the Transformers: Prime television series. It begins with the Decepticon campaign, though players can choose to begin with the Autobot campaign and return to the Decepticon campaign later.
In the Decepticon Campaign Megatron is fighting to return Cybertron to his version of the "golden age", using means he considers necessary. He discovers a source of all-powerful dark energon guarded by Starscream in his research station. Megatron obtains it and immerses himself in the dark energon. Starscream asks Megatron to teach him how to use dark energon in return for his service to Megatron. Shocked by his betrayal, Starscream's colleague Jetfire escapes the space station.
Starscream offers to send Thundercracker and Skywarp after him, but Megatron sends the trio to reactivate the energon bridge connecting Starscream's space station and Cybertron. Megatron then develops a plan to infect the core of Cybertron with dark energon, destroying the Autobots. For this plan to succeed, Megatron launches a full-scale assault on Iacon, looking for an item called the Omega Key. The Decepticons learn that Zeta Prime has placed the key under his personal guard. Megatron's forces enter the chambers of Zeta Prime and defeat him in battle, taking him prisoner. Zeta Prime tells Megatron that the Omega Key is not actually the key, but is the means to activate the true key, a transformer known as Omega Supreme. Omega Supreme chases and attacks Megatron and his minions relentlessly. Megatron, realizing his impending peril, hatches a plan to lure Omega Supreme to a rooftop defended with turrets, where Omega Supreme is ambushed. Omega Supreme sustains heavy damage and plummets into Cybertron's lower levels.
The Decepticons follow Omega Supreme and engage him in a lengthy final battle, in which Omega Supreme is finally defeated and captured by the Decepticons. Megatron forces Omega Surpeme to open the door to Cybertron's core and travels there with his minions. Upon arrival, Megatron infects the core of Cybertron with dark energon. Cybertron is then shown being fully corrupted by dark energon.
In the Autobot Campaign, the Autobot leader, Zeta Prime, has been reported dead and Optimus temporarily takes up the mantle of leadership. He begins recruiting new Transformers to the Autobot cause in order to fight Megatron and the Decepticons. The Autobot campaign begins with Optimus, Bumblebee and Ratchet defending their home city of Iacon. Optimus, Ratchet and Bumblebee then proceed to defend Iacon by activating the planetary guns. Afterward they reactivate the communication grid and defend the Decagon from Decepticons. After reaching the Decagon, the Autobots fight Starscream and are successful in driving him into a cowardly retreat.
Shortly afterward, the Autobots receive a distress call from Zeta Prime. He informs the Autobots that he is being held at Kaon prison. Ratchet immediately suspects a trap, but Optimus decides to attempt a rescue. Taking Bumblebee and Sideswipe with him, Optimus allows himself and the others to be captured by the Decepticons and taken to Kaon prison. The Autobots succeed in releasing all of Kaon's Autobot prisoners who escape on Decepticon transports. Optimus, accompanied by Bumblebee and Sideswipe, find Zeta Prime's cell guarded by Soundwave. A fight ensues with Soundwave deploying his minions Frenzy, Rumble and Lazerbeak during the fight. Eventually, Soundwave and his minions retreat and the Autobots rescue Zeta Prime. To the Autobots' dismay, Zeta Prime dies shortly after rescue from wounds previously inflicted. Optimus returns to Iacon with Zeta Prime's body and talks with the high council who declares Optimus the new Prime and informed him of Megatron's activities.
Optimus is given the task of removing the dark energon from Cybertron's core by the Autobot Council. Optimus and his team first attempts to rescue Omega Supreme from the Decepticons, who is being tortured by dark energon. The Autobots manage to free Omega Supreme and rely on Ratchet to repair Omega Supreme to the point of opening the gateway to Cybertron's core. During their journey to the core they encounter a corrupted space worm, which later attacks the Autobots when they reach the core. Once the worm is destroyed, Optimus speaks with Cybertron's core. The core informs Optimus that it can repair itself, but it will take several million years, time in which Cybertron will become cold, barren, and lifeless. The core then tells Optimus that if he carries a small piece of the core with him, the core will still survive while it repairs. Optimus accepts the burden and the core relinquishes the Autobot Matrix of Leadership.
Realizing his planet is dying, Optimus orders the evacuation of all Autobot cities. As the Autobot transports leave orbit many are destroyed by the a massive Decepticon known as Trypticon. Optimus tells Silverbolt to ready his soldiers for an attack on the Decepticon. Silverbolt, Air Raid and Jetfire enter the Decepticon and first destroy the coolant systems and then the plasma reactor. Unfortunately the Autobots are forced to enter Trypticon again and disable his transformation cog so that he transforms back to his original form. The cog is destroyed and Trypticon changes into his dinosaur mode. As Trypticon falls toward Cybertron, Silverbolt, Air Raid and Jetfire attack Trypticon's jetpack and destroy it. This sends Trypticon plunging into Cybertron. The Autobots band together to narrowly defeat Trypticon, sending him plunging into a pool of energon goo. Optimus and the remaining Autobots stay to defend Cybertron from Megatron for as long as possible. Optimus commissions a massive vessel known as "The Ark" to transport the remaining Autobots into space when the time comes.

|PlayStation 3 scores|
GameSpot gave the game a 6.5/10 and said "Even towering robots have difficulty hiding the many problems present in Transformers: War for Cybertron". IGN gave the game an "Outstanding" rating at 9/10, because of its "Great Presentation", "Fun Multiplayer", "Classy Fan Service", but subtracted from its score due to the "Repetitive Visuals".
Transformers: Cybertron Adventures
The Wii version of the game is released under the title Transformers: Cybertron Adventures. It was developed by Next Level Games and released the same day as War for Cybertron. This version still features separate campaigns for the Autobots and Decepticons, but instead of being a third person shooter, Cybertron Adventures is a rail shooter, utilizing a gameplay similar to Time Crisis arcade game. Players must defeat a group of enemies in one area from a cover point. After all enemies are defeated, the character will move along a pre-defined path to another area, and so on. Occasionally during gameplay the character will transform into vehicle, and the player must control them to reach one point, destroying obstacles on the way. Offline co-op is also featured.
Unlike the well-received PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, Cybertron Adventures received mostly negative reviews, averaging only 39% at Metacritic. It scored 3.5/10 in IGN, with the reviewer citing bad textures, poor animations, boring environments, miserable gameplay experience that even "co-op cannot save". The reviewer however praised the music and in particular, Peter Cullen's performance as Optimus Prime, calling it "the single saving grace of Cybertron Adventures." Destructoid was the only reviewer to give a positive review, giving Cybertron Adventures a 7.0. Reviewer Jim Sterling said it was "definitely not as great in the gameplay department as War for Cybertron" but that it had a "superior narrative and decent arcade action."
Nintendo DS versions
The DS versions of War for Cybertron have different gameplay from the console versions but retain most of the features from previous Transformers DS games, such as Transformers: Autobots and Transformers: Decepticons. A total of thirty playable Transformers span the Autobots and Decepticons games, with fifteen per game. A new main feature is the weaknesses of different enemy types making the player watch the weakness indicator carefully in case the enemy changes its indicator. Another new feature is that the player can bring two different characters in one level and can switch freely between them during gameplay. Character transformations have improved, and weapons visually change when the player chooses either melee or long ranged attacks. The DS versions have received fairly positive reviews with IGN stating that "War for Cybertron definitely isn't the worst of the bunch, and at the very least it's clear that this wasn't done as a quick cash-in." with a score of 6.5 in IGN.[ Digital Chumps reported that "I think Vicarious Visions did a respectable job with the DS version of War For Cybertron. It's not a great game, but at the same time it's far from bad, and Transformers fans with a DS should give this some consideration." giving it a score of 6.4/10. ][ ]
Transforming figures of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Soundwave from this game have been released by Hasbro under the Transformers: Generations banner. A Cliffjumper figure, likely a repaint of Bumblebee, is to arrive in stores later in 2010.
At a panel at BotCon, According to War for Cybertron creative director Matt Tieger, Activision is currently talking with Hasbro in order to make more titles. He also added that Hasbro is "considering" expanding the brand further into the realm of video games.
