Video Game Give-Away — Transformers: Fall of Cybertron
Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron was just released worldwide and is one of the most anticipated video games of 2012.
We are giving away five Xbox 360 and five PlayStation 3 original copies of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, courtesy of Activision. Tweet and/or Instagram a photo of how you game to win! Don’t forget to tag your post with #drjaysfree and the desired console copy #xbox or #ps3. Don’t worry, we’ll find you. Winners will be announced September 7, 2012.
Hands down, this is one of my favorite games so far this year. The story is action packed and well written. In campaign mode, you play as several Transformers characters — Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Bruticus, Grimlock and more! I was skeptical about the online game play at first, but it is almost as good as Halo and Call of Duty. Yes, I ranked it up there.
The ultimate winning feature is being able to transform from vehicle to robot during the game. Since we’re such impatient beings, there’s a boost/dash button that we all love. The battle arenas were designed for this fabulous feature. However, I wish there were more places to hide behind, as well as a “crouch” button. Maybe even the option to lay down for a drop shot. But then again, they are robots armed with sexy massive weapons.
The campaign story takes you to the final days of planet Cybertron, where you experience first hand the darkest hours of the civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. After playing as different Transformers and mastering their weaponry, you should take your skills online versus other players, regionally or worldwide, in Team Deathmatch, Conquest, Capture The Flag, and Head Hunter. Or fight off waves of roots with friends in Excursion.
Now here’s the sweet seller. If you want to be a pink Optimus Prime, you can. In the online mode, you can customize and create your dream Transformer to battle with. Choose from four different classes: infiltrator, destroyer, titan, and scientist; each has its own strengths and weaknesses. You can change classes at any time during battle. Outfit your Transformers with a primary weapon, secondary weapon, and ability of choice. You can upgrade and unlock new weapons as you rank up and earn XP points. You can also trade in those points for aesthetics such as different heads, wings, torso, arms, and much more.
Check out what the big timers are saying:
“This is where it all began, it’s the epic story of the TRANSFORMERS leaving their home planet,” said Peter Della Penna, Studio Head, High Moon Studios. “From day one, we knew we were going to create the definitive TRANSFORMERS video game, a phenomenal action experience combining a deep, emotional tale with one-of-a-kind gameplay that lets you convert from robot to vehicle whenever you want.”
“This is the fall of their homeworld, and by far the biggest scale we’ve ever seen in a TRANSFORMERS game,” said Mark Blecher, SVP of Digital Media and Marketing, Hasbro. “We could not be any happier teaming up with the great talent at High Moon Studios to deliver the official backstory of the colossal battles that led to the TRANSFORMERS’ exodus from Cybertron. We can’t wait to have fans and gamers experience this amazing title.”
