    Platinum never ceases to amaze me, and thankfully Transformers: Devastation continues to prove why Platinum Games is the best action genre developer in the business today.

    Transformers Devastation is a fantastic love letter to G1 Transformers fans, and a great game in its own right.

    Transformers Devastation is a great example of how to take a licensed property and turn it into a quality title. While the game is a little on the short side, it's strong from start to finish.

    This is unquestionably the best Transformers game ever, a game to satisfy a yearning fanbase, a game instantly accessible for any non-affiliate who simply wants a good hack ‘n’ slash, and a sufficient platform on which to build a series.

    Transformers: Devastation is the best that the genre has given recently and it's a game clearly by Platinum Games. However, the game is perceived a bit short and it's never an expensive production. The cel shading aesthetic works and you remember the TV series of 80s. It features the quick fights and the vehicles you want.

    Finally, a Transformers game where the characters look like plastic toys. While limited, this is no mere cash-in. [Dec 2015, p.85]

    This isn't a passive action game, because if the player pays attention, the opportunities to prove him or herself are abundant.

Those games, however, took a terrible turn with the release of Rise of the Dark Spark, essentially ruining any chances of getting a good game (or any game) in that continuity again. Devastation was the absolute best way to recover from that. Instead of trying to be like the Cybertron games, it decided to follow its own path, and that was definitely the right decision. Filled with beautiful cartoony animation, solid gameplay, and awesome characters, Devastation is a great game for any fan of G1, or just Transformers in general. Expand

The animation looks like the origional G1 cartoon but better of coarse. Fun story and dynamic of combining weapons. This is a very fun game and well worth $50.00. They could do so much with this genre. I hope for a sequel and more playable bots! Expand

    Muy buen Hack n Slash que quizás repita escenarios pero cumple con su cometido sobradamente, muy frenético y adictivo.

    Negatives
    * Even on lowest difficulty this game has many enemies that still cause huge damage to you quite easily which is a unacceptable
    *Very short, only 11 chapters and only the difficulties prolong the game.
    *The game has a lot of build up for the Nova Prime character, but you never get to encounter him in the game.
