GiantBomb: Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Review

"Fall of Cybertron has some truly excellent moments, but you'll need to look past some serious downsides to enjoy the overall package."
Written by Jeff Gerstmann (PC, PS3, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Xbox 360) 3/5

I perceive GiantBomb's reviews to be incredibly unique, in that they are more personal and less restricted by boundaries than other, more convoluted reviewers such as IGN, of whom are consistently contradicting their own marking scheme (Scoring criticised games perfect score for example). Whilst other reviewers are devoid of personality, such is not the case for GiantBomb, who, rather than assessing every aspect of a game by the reviewers guide, instead provide what they consider to be important components, what frustrates them and what they love.

Whilst I do wish the game had been given to a more regular Third-Person Shooter gamer, I can understand many of Jeff's points. I can see this being an incredibly polarising game review-wise, with already Game Informer scoring it a 9/10 and IGN scoring it an 8.5/10.
I am anticipating its launch here in the UK...

Dont agree with the cover system criticism, it would intfere far to much with the pace of the game in MP and it doesnt make much sense for a giant robot who has a shield to take cover.

Im still anxiously awaiting my pre order as the meat of the game is in the MP.

score is 3 out of 5

3/5 is equivalent to 6/10, also, no option is provided for "...out of 5" reviews...

You need to double check the review score selection because out of five is right there...so that's is a legitimate report
