Transformers: War for Cybertron

Transformers: War for Cybertron challenges players to become the ultimate weapon as a Transformers character in the final, epic war that will determine the survival of their entire race. Armed with a diverse arsenal of lethal, high-tech weaponry and the ability to instantly convert from robot to vehicle at any time, players will engage in heart-pounding battles on land and in the air in this gripping, 3rd person action shooter set in the Transformers’ war-ravaged homeland.

Complete with several multiplayer modes, Transformers: War for Cybertron allows gamers to play through story missions with their friends in drop in/drop out online co-op, and also create their own Transformers character for competitive head-to-head multiplayer modes, choosing among four distinct character classes, personalizing its look and selecting from a huge variety of weapons, skills and abilities.

I was sceptical after the slightly poor recent releases connected to the films, but this one instantly showed promise from trying to distance itself from them.


Red Dead Redemption

When you see a game by Rockstar Games you know its going to be good. For the uninitiated were talking the makers of Grand Theft Auto. As with the GTA series this is of epic proportion and boasts hours of gameplay.

I’ve played for well over 20 hours now and there’s still loads and loads to do.

It does suffer from the usual monotony of Rockstars GTA series in that you get a bit bored of getting from A to B. This is accelerated by using a campsite where you can fast travel to different locations.

It’s not one for the animal lovers as part of the game is shooting and skinning anything that moves, from your trusty but dead steed to a blood thirsty wolf.

I’ll keep this brief as a simple Red Dead Redemption search will bring up countless reviews, but if you want to stretch out that hard earned cash then £40 will give you a lot of gameplay.
