* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Megatron]], leader of the Decepticons, is the instigator of the titular war. A merciless tyrant, Megatron is bent on the conquest of Cybertron and the destruction of the Autobots, with the resulting war ravaging Cybertron and devastating its population. After taking control of the powerful [[TheCorruption Dark Energon]], Megatron infects Cybertron's core with the substance, further damaging the planet and bringing it under his control. When this corruption is cleared away, the core is forced to shut down, leaving Cybertron on the brink of death. As the Autobots try to leave the dying world, Megatron has their ships shot down, endangering the future of his own species to satisfy his hatred for the Autobots, before sending the monstrous [[HumongousMecha Trypticon]] after them. In ''[[VideoGame/TransformersRiseOfTheDarkSpark Rise of the Dark Spark]]'', Megatron acquires the Dark Spark and uses it to resurrect dead Autobots as mindless drones who will fight on his side. When offered a truce by Optimus Prime in ''[[VideoGame/TransformersFallOfCybertron Fall of Cybertron]]'', Megatron refuses, [[NeverMyFault blaming Optimus]] for Cybertron's decline, declaring [[ItsAllAboutMe himself the planet's future]], and trying to destroy the Autobots' last hope of leaving Cybertron alive. After discovering the damaged Trypticon, Megatron, [[BadBoss not caring if Trypticon is still conscious or not]], has him forcibly converted into a warship for his own use. As the Autobots flee Cybertron, Megatron stages one last assault on the Ark, doing his best to kill Optimus Prime and doom the Autobots. Ruthless and [[BloodKnight bloodthirsty]] beyond measure, [[TheUnfettered Megatron]] is willing to doom his own homeworld and his entire species to satisfy his lust for power and hatred for his enemies.

* MostAnnoyingSound: Not at first, but wait till you have to fight [[spoiler:[[FinalBoss Trypticon]]]] multiple times ([[ThatOneBoss and you will]]). You will sicken of hearing "You thought you could destroy me?! You thought you could destroy [[spoiler:TRYPTICON]]?! Haaa... pathetic!" "He's just laughing at us!" fast.
** Those who are used to Bumblebee being mute might feel this about him talking.

Added DiffLines:

** That gigantic corrupted space worm you encounter during the latter half of "To the Core".

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: The game itself is well-liked. The game's place in continuity is... hoo boy. ''War for Cybertron'' is very unapologetically "G1 Fanservice - The Game", and High Moon consistently acknowledged throughout its development that they seemed to see it as a G1 game. Hasbro, on the other hand, insists that the game takes place in the Aligned continuity and is a prequel to ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime.'' Except given the above, ''WFC'' and ''Prime'' really don't fit together except in BroadStrokes, and their only real tie is that both involve Dark Energon heavily (which really isn't seen as particularly important, given that it's basically just an interchangeable MacGuffin). Their fanbases don't really overlap either, for that matter. Then there's the ''Literature/TransformersExodus'' novel, which tries to tie them together [[ContinuitySnarl but actually meshes with neither.]] This leads to a number of factions: fans who wish the High Moon games would just get declared to be the G1 games they were meant to be, fans who wish the High Moon games had taken more care to fit in with the ''Prime'' cartoon and vice versa, fans who see the entire Aligned continuity experiment as an unneeded mess, and fans who stick by Hasbro's word, treat the "WFC is G1" crowd as the usual suspects, and insist on trying to tie it all together.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Averted with the PS3, 360, and PC (barely) versions. ''Cybertron Adventures'' for the Wii, however, is a mediocre ''RailShooter''. WordOfGod states that the Unreal engine used in ''War for Cybertron'' simply doesn't work on the Wii, and that High Moon Studios didn't have the in-house facilities needed to develop a Wii game, so the production had to be farmed out to another developer.
