Transformers: Devastation pays incredible respect to its source material, and yet that esteem could have easily been marred by poor gameplay had publisher Activision not chosen PlatinumGames, a heralded producer of quality action titles, to develop their game. Though a dedicated fan of the original series, I do feel the $49.99 price tag is about ten dollars too steep for the amount of content the game provides. However, the heart-pounding rush of playing iconic Autobots in their classic form is real, and very hard to resist for a fan, either old or new.
Transformers Devastation is a great action game marred by a few design hiccups. Camera issues can make combat a chore, but that combat is extremely satisfying at its core. Fans of cartoons, action games, comics, Transformers, and fun will likely have a good time with Platinum’s latest. Is it the best they’ve done? No. Is it still a good time? Heck yes.
The melee combat is excellent (although if you don’t experiment with different attacks you might have less fun), the five different Autobot characters are all unique, and it’s generally good fun overall. However the Transforming is underused, the shooting is awful, a lot of the non-combat game stuff like upgrades, items, menus and PC options are very annoying, and the supposedly open world is a bit too linear and gets repetitive to explore.
