Transformers: War for Cybertron

Finally got around to playing Transformers: War for Cybertron. This game was amazing, if you’d of taken me and a bunch of my friend from 3rd grade and asked us how a Transformers game/story should be done this is how it would’ve turned out. It was so accurate to what I remembered best from Transformers growing up and none of that silly stuff from the recent movies.

The ending credits were amazingly 80’s! An original song by Stan Bush, the nostalgic graphics, it was great!

Playing as both the Decepticons and Autobots was a nice touch. Starscream, Soundwave and cast were always favorites of mine. Actually recruiting Starscream in the first chapter to the Decepticons side was really fun. It was cool to see that he was still working with Jetfire at the time. If you have any idea of what I’m talking about then you are an excellent Transformers fan and I have your back should you even need it.

Even if this game didn’t have the Transformers license, it’d still of been a terrific game. This is an extreme rarity and a real shame that licensed games almost always turn out bad. It you grew up liking the Transformers and ranks the death of Optimus Prime right up with the Challenger explosion then buy and play this game right away. If you don’t then still play it, it’s really good.


Transformers: The Complete First Season (25th Anniversary Edition)

When I saw the first season of Transformers on DVD, I immediately picked it up and bought it, no hesitation. When the Transformers cartoons first aired in 1984, my brothers and all my friends at the time were instantly hooked. The rist now was would I still enjoy watching them after all these years, or could this possible ruin the fine memory I have of what was an amazing show.

I gotta admit, they held up very well. The stories weren’t that bad at all. The whole end of the world when cybetron is brought to Earth was pretty cool. Always was a sucker for those end of the world plots. I gladly went through all episodes pretty quickly.

Starscream is still my favorite character. Gotta root for the bad guys. They come so close to ruling the universe too, it’s almost sad to watch them fail. I forgot that the Constructicons made their first appearance in the first season, so that was a nice surprise.

The quality is pretty solid, considering how old it is. The extras provided are so-so, nothing too amazing.
