Transformers is a franchise that remains dear to the kids of the 1980s, but recent film reboots from Michael Bay seem to be missing one key element – Cybertron! It's nice to see Optimus Prime and Megatron duking it out, but it would be even better to see it on their war-torn turf.

War for Cybertron takes you right into the heart of the Transformers' home; an epic wasteland of twisted technology and broken circuits. All because the Autobots and Decepticons couldn't get along. So sad. Not only do we get to see the alien planet in its entirety, the story for the game acts as a prequel of sorts, telling the tale of the civil war that led to a most bitter rivalry.

As a result, you get to clomp around as one of the Autobots or Decepticons in a third person adventure that strings multiple close-quarter firefights together. As well as pummelling your foes, you also get some long-range weapons, missiles and the ability – of course – to transform. Doing this allows you to use some unique abilities – Optimus can turn into a truck and zoom out of harm's way, or ram opponents for example.

Team-based co-op play is available, or you can turn against your friends and compete in a number of multiplayer modes.
