Transformers Devastation [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Transformers Devastation may be linear, repetitive, and not have a plethora of replay value included but what it lacks it more than makes up for in its fan service for G1 fans. Devastation offers amazing visuals, the original voice cast, an enjoyable combat system, and frequent boss battles. If you're an old school G1 fan it's the greatest looking Transformers game you've ever seen and feels like it was taken directly from an '80s morning cartoon.

The Pros: 

+Greatest looking Transformers game ever
+Original voice acting cast
+Frequent and entertaining boss battles

The Cons: 

-Very short campaign-
The Touch by Stan Bush nor the classic TV theme song is included
-No playable Decepticons

The moment Transformers Devastation was announced, I was all in. The kid in me that grew up with the TV series back in the '80s squealed and it seemed like I was actually going to get the G1 Transformers game I've always dreamt of. Nostalgia is a funny thing though, as you tend to remember things very fondly regardless of how they actually were, so I came in slightly skeptical and tried to keep my expectations manageable as I didn't want to be too let down just in case.

Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron Trailer Has Dinobots, Swordfights, And Lots Of Explosions

A potential highlight of gaming this year could be Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, the latest and possibly greatest Transformers game from Activision.  Following in the steps of Transformers: War on Cybertron, this latest TF entry once again features the Autobots and Decepticons doing battle and lots of stuff blowing up in a rather glorious fashion that will in the process make TF fans even more jaded over how crappy the live-action Transformers films were.

Activision Reveals Another Transformers Game

The Transformers franchise may have been somewhat sullied by a movie trilogy that was the embodiment of dumb and abysmal (at least to fans of the original property), but at least the Transformers are still rolling out in some hopefully good video games.  Besides the forthcoming Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Activision has just announced a new Transformers game that may be geared towards the younger gamers but aren’t we all young at heart?

Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron Images Are Full Of Action And Visual Delights

Normally seeing some “in-game” screens of an announced game aren’t a big thing since there’s always a decent amount of post-processing effects to make everything look sharper than it really is. I’ll even go as far as to admit that such visual trickery has made me jaded which is why I don’t do that many posts exclusively catered to screenshots reveals.  But I have to say that my inner geek made me do a small about face since these new images for Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron are as badass as a game about giant robots engaged in war can be.

Oh Wow, We Have A Movie Game That Could Be Good! New Trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Deep inside my geek laden heart I consider myself to be a Transformers fan. No, I’m not a Transformers fan because of the Michael Bay films or because I’ve watched some of the horrific cartoons that have been released lately. I’m basically an old-school Transformers fan who saw the G1 cartoon back in the day but then became hooked upon watching Beast Wars, which I must say is the BEST TRANSFORMERS CARTOON EVER!

Unique concept art for Transformers 3

NOTE: We got a take down notice for the images. The images have also been removed from the artists blog and Superannuation.

New Transformers: War for Cybertron trailer shows more robot action

Last month Transformers: War for Cybertron was announced and surprisingly it looks to be bucking the trend of the recent Transformers game as it isn’t tied to a cartoon or a terrible movie.  Of course some still have reservations as to whether the game will be any good and those Transformers die-hards out there are busy nitpicking the new yet still faithful design changes of the Autobots and Decepticons.

Premier trailer for Transformers: War for Cybertron

Earlier this week to the surprise of many Activision announced Transformers: War for Cybertron for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The fact that Activision was once again trying to capitalize on a multi-million dollar franchise wasn’t the surprising part, instead it was the fact that the game was being based on the look from the cartoon and comic books instead of the rubbish that Michael Bay gave us in his vision of Autobots and Decepticons.

Activision's new Transformers game could be awesome

After two awful games based on the mediocre Michael Bay films the next Transformers game could end up being the game we all want since it’s dropping the Bayformers in favor of the more “classic” approach.

Game Informer magazine has the debut of Activision’s Transformers: The War for Cybertron, which is a new third-person shooter from developer High Moon Studios who also developed the vampire-cowboy fps game Darkwatch.
