In my book, there’s only been one stellar Transformers game to date: Atari’s PS2 title, which was appropriately titled Transformers. It’s the kind of series that should result in amazing games, but the titles I’ve played have been fairly lackluster. (I know a lot of people liked the War for Cybertron series, but I never found it at all engaging.)
Unfortunately Transformers: Devastation might be another mediocre giant robot game. It’s too early to make any definitive judgements, but from what I’ve seen, this game looks like a generic arena brawler in the vein of the Dragon Ball Z games (apologies to my DBZ-loving brother, Gabe Watkins).
If this trailer accurately represents this game, I doubt it will be up my alley. On the bright side, it probably won’t be royally fucked up as the Michael Bay Transformers movies were.
