Transformers: War for Cybertron got online multiplayer right, treating the Autobots and Decepticons like soldiers rather than children's toys. The problem was the setting of Cybertron didn't exactly lend itself to varied battlegrounds and colors other than red and purple. Movie tie-in Dark of the Moon fixes that.


The other problem with War for Cybertron was the bots were on their home turf, and on a planet built for them you lose the awesome sense of scale of seeing giant robots battling around Earth-based locations. Dark of the Moon fixes that as well.

Sure it stars the hideous Michael Baybots, but underneath that ugly exterior lies the same development team that finally made a good generation one-ish Transformers game. Knowing that, I can overlook the Bay for a little while to see how well the multiplayer holds up when we humans have home field advantage come June 14.
