Contrary to what was feared, the game does not drag a bunt and a leg. Technically, it is very strong with a realization that not n’écorche eyes. The comparison with Gears of War is inevitable, even if the textures are less convincing than the title of Epic Games . For cons, the explosions multiply the screen, lighting effects too, and the modeling of different actors has been the subject of special care. For the record, Jim Daly, Lead Concept Artist at High Moon Studios , told us that the design of Bumblebee was one he felt most successful in his eyes. We will think.

The War:

In terms of gameplay, it will be possible to compose a team of three before each mission, and if the other two characters were controlled by the AI during the presentation of the game, Jason Addis said the player could, once online, be supported by two other players.

To encourage the player to fight, it will be possible to recover ammunition from the carcass of defeated enemies, to rebuild their health, picking the famous Health cubes, but also to switch weapons in transit. On the other hand, the player will rely on special attacks like the War Cry of Optimus Prime, which will result in increased damage to enemies and reduce damage. Also in the camp of the Autobots, Ratchet is able to heal teammates in case of an attack, a valuable aid for those wishing to attack the game in "Hard". The developers at High Moon Studios has acknowledged having done everything that Transformers: War For Cybertron  not sunk in at all bourrinage goes and starts to test the tactical skills of the player.
