    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.

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

    Overview: Nostalgic blast. Gameplay that smacks of 80s and 90s arcade games, Vince DiCola rock tracks, cel-shaded "Generations"Overview: Nostalgic blast. Gameplay that smacks of 80s and 90s arcade games, Vince DiCola rock tracks, cel-shaded "Generations" Transformers, and a plot worthy of the cartoon. If you're mid-to-late 30s this game will probably speak to you. Mash-up of some of the great gaming experiences of yesteryear with modern production values behind it.

    The Good: Great graphics, great music, great voice acting, great sound. Gameplay is addictive and replay value is huge. This game has a "fun" factor more typical of 90s arcade classics than modern AAA titles.

    The Bad: The leveling system for characters and weapons in this game is very nebulous. The absence of multiplayer modes is absolutely tragic. Game seems too short, a problem that would have been remedied by adding some multiplayer combat.

    Bottom Line: Must buy if you're a fan of classic arcade games or G1 styled Transformers antics. Plenty of content for the money if you replay any aspect of the game at all. Otherwise, wait for a sale if you fall outside of this description, but you will want to play this game at some point.

    Es un juego cortito, bastante cortito, (unas 5 horas la primera vuelta, sin explorar demasiado), pero eso si, este juego es muy rejugable, con extras muy buenos y por eso merece la pena sin duda.

    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.
