Transformers are actually well known for being more than meets the eye. That doesn't mean a game about them can't throw up a few surprises, though. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is a follow-up to the 2010 game War for Cybertron. As the name suggests, things aren't going so well for everyone's favourite robot planet. The result is a game that's darker and grittier than its predecessor.

As with the previous title, Fall of Cybertron is a third-person action game. Weapons have, of course, been upgraded. Similarly, each character has a unique ability. Optimus Prime even gets to control the awesome, utterly massive, Metroplex.

There are characters galore, including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee (now sans voice), Ratchet, Jazz, Cliffjumper, Ironhide, Sideswipe, Warpath, Perceptor, Wheeljack, Hound, Jetfire, Air Raid, Metroplex, the Dinobots (including Grimlock, Sludge, Slug, Snarl and Swoop), and, on the Decepticon side of the equation, Megatron, Soundwave, Shockwave, Starscream, the Combaticons (namely Onslaught, Blast Off, Brawl, Swindle and Vortex) and their shared form, Bruticus, as well as an Insecticon swarm, with Kickback, Hardshell and Sharpshot.

Multiplayer makes a return, including the Escalation mode in which players must face down insane numbers of foes. The character creation has undergone a re-working, with hundreds of different parts and paint jobs on offer for you to build your own robot in disguise.
