About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron takes fans through the final, darkest hours of the civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons as they fight for control of their dying planet, ultimately leading to their storied exodus from home.

Key Features:

  • The Fall of their Home Planet. The the game thrusts players into an epic Transformers story where they explore the devastated ruins of Cybertron and fight through the final, darkest hours of the war between the Autobots and Decepticons.
  • Colossal Scale. Fans can convert from robot to an alternate form.  Grimlock can change into a powerful T-Rex Dinobot for super strength and fire-breathing attack, and the Combaticons can combine into the massive Bruticus to dominate his enemies with size and power.
  • New and Unique Gameplay for Each Character. Every Transformers character is equipped with distinct abilities and personalities that are suited for the diverse missions in the game.  Autobot Jazz can deploy his grappling hook to traverse multi-level platforms.  Cliffjumper can cloak himself invisible to perform undetected stealth kills on his enemies.  Optimus Prime can call in targeted artillery strikes from the sky.  Additionally, some characters make their in-game debut including Grimlock, Bruticus, Metroplex, and the Insecticons.
  • Character Creator. Adding and improving upon the multiplayer gameplay from War for Cybertron, the character creator allows fans to design personalized characters by choosing individual body parts, colors, vehicle shapes, weapons, abilities and much more.  Gamers can then take them online to go head-to-head in Autobot-versus-Decepticon matches.
