What a disappointment after the magical WFC
Such a disappointing followup to WFC.
They took out pretty much all the big epic boss fights from the first game, which were so memorable and fun. The only boss fight you really get is against Bruticus at the end.
You think you’ll get to play Megatron and fight Starscream when he proclaims himself the new leader of the Decepticons. But instead you just... fight waves of noname enemies in a giant purple arena. You never actually get a boss fight against Starscream. Unbelievable bullshit.
They got rid of a lot of the wide open spaces to fly around in that you had in the first game.
They got rid of the campaign co-op.
You’re limited to one regular weapon and one heavy weapon this time, which unnecessarily limits your weapon options.
Playing as Bruticus, which should’ve been the big highlight of the campaign, felt half-baked and lame as hell. Instead of feeling like I’m now a giant combiner towering over the level, it felt like I was regular-sized and everything else in the level just got shrunken down. It looked cheap and shoddy and never gave me that awesome feeling of being a giant combiner that it should’ve.
Playing as Grimlock wasn’t fun at all. You just found yourself walking around throwing explosive barrels at things. Terrible gameplay. You also never got any boss fights against the Insecticons. Another huge missed opportunity.
Fall of Cybertron was much much worse in basically every way.
