    Much to my surprise, all of the playable characters have different styles. Grimlock is more of a grappler, Bumblebee is quicker and doesn't pack a punch, Sideswipe has access to a quicker dash, and so on. They're not wildly different to the point where you'll have to relearn every single facet of the game, but they're nuanced enough that there's actually a reason to pick different Autobots.

    Transformers Devastation is a delight that dazzled fans of the legendary Hasbro toys thanks to the undeniable talent of Platinum Games.

    Scratch beneath the surface and there's a deep game that gives out as much as you're willing to put in. [Christmas 2015, p.79]

    Like a robot in disguise, Transformers: Devastation is a really good game that could have been potentially great. Sadly, there isn't more than meets the eye to Platinum's effort, but what is included is superb. It's just too bad there isn't a little bit more of it.

    It's not original, it's obviously a bit rushed, and it's very short, but it's also the best Transfomers game around, far from the confused style of the Michael Bay movies, and finally faithful to the original animated series. The fact that it reuses a lot of mechanics from Platinum Action games, simplifying them, helps a lot when it comes to quality and excitement.

    Tranformers Devastation is best Transformers game to date. PlatinumGames did a great job with the fighting portion of the game and that's all we want to remember, as the rest is not on the same level.

    It's like playing an episode of the 80s' cartoon, with some Bayonetta tricks to make it really enjoyable. Fighting system is pretty effective, but the whole thing quickly feel repetitive (and sometimes clumsy because of the camera) and pretty big environments really lack life and interest when you have to explore them. But fans will probably forgive Transformers Devastation mistakes.

    SHORT AND SWEET. That's my definition of Transformers: Devastation based on my experience with it.

    I have played many video games across many consoles containing over 8 hours of single player campaign which at the end of the day when everything is set and done, i wondered if that specific game had to be that long.

    Many Game Developers design their games in a way that in order to be completed the player would have to grind through unnecessary missions, levels of story GCI that only makes the game a TASK to play through instead of what it was designed for....FUN....and I'm glad Platinum Games kept this title short and to the point.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game looks and feels just like the old movie and tv show with Platinum games quick and flowing combat. It's not that long really like 4hrs but the gameplay and story makes up for it. The graphics are great with that 80 's 90 's vibe and voice actors just giving it that old-school flashback. I really feel that only downside to it is the short story and semi-cliffhanger ending for DLC or things down the line. All in all the game is great and should at least be a try if you love Platinum or Transformers. Expand

    Wow, a Transformer game that's actually good. Haven't had one of those in a while.

    Wow, a Transformer game that's actually good. Haven't had one of those in a while.

    If you ever watched Transformers as a kid like I did, this is a dream come true. The gameplay kicks ass, it looks great, and the boss battles are amazing. It's bright and colorful, and still keeps the action element fresh and new. However, as to be expected, there are problems with this game; the levels are somewhat bland, and the loot you get is absolute crap. It IS kind of hard to recommend because it costs $50, but it's a good buy if you're looking for a fun, action packed fighter, this is the game for you.

    Transformers Devastation gets an 8/10.
