Transformers: Fall of Cybertron First Impression

Fall of Cybertron has been out for a couple of days now and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time playing it.  First off the game looks and sounds amazing, the transformers are well animated and the environmental sounds and voice acting are top notch.  I have tried to split my time between the single player and multi player experiences.

The single player experience is slightly different this time with the removal of Co-op and not allowing you to select what transformer to use.  This enables them to structure each chapter for a particular robot and their special ability.  I have made it to Chapter V and love it so far.  Changing robots every chapter keeps the story and game play fresh and lets you enjoy abilities like cloaking and grappling.  So far there have been a few spots where I continuously end up getting killed and have needed to set the controller down for a short break.  They mostly consist of being bombarded by enemies with a limited space to hide but after a few more tries I managed to complete the objectives.

Multi-player has also been a blast.  I have spent some time playing both Team Deathmatch and Conquest and get owned in both.  The ability to customize  your robots in depth is a lot of fun and allows you to create one designed just for you (Prime in Decepticon colours looks strange).  The multi player maps are well laid out and a lot of fun to explore (and in my case get killed!).  You level up your 4 different classes and unlock perks to help you kill your enemies faster or to help you stay in one piece.  I have had no problems finding matches to play in which was a little bit of an issue in the first game.

Overall this game is SWEET.  Its a solid follow up to War for Cybertron and I cannot wait to find out what High Moon Studios plans to do next (be it Transformers based or not).
