Transformers Devastation – The TFW2005 Review
Transformers: Devastation is the highly anticipated video game from Activision and Platinum Dunes. It’s been out for a bit now. But we wanted to share our staff’s thoughts on the game, and give it the proper write up it deserves from our crew. The game is available for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC platforms. In the game, you take control of the Autobots and take on the Decepticons to prevent the destruction of Earth. It gives fans of the classic Generation 1 cartoon a chance to live an all-new episode of their favorite franchise. But it has some great nods to the ongoing Combiner Wars toy line that newcomers will feel right at home. Game overview from Activision:
TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is an original third-person action-brawler game based on Hasbro’s colossal science-fiction franchise and developed by acclaimed studio PlatinumGames. Combining fast-paced gameplay and fine-tuned controls, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation evolves the iconic robots in disguise in a way never before seen in a TRANSFORMERS video game. As the treacherous DECEPTICONS launch a cataclysmic assault on Earth, the noble AUTOBOTS will have to muster all their strength to save their new home from destruction.
The Platinum Touch – Forged with PlatinumGames’ one-of-a-kind talent for over-the-top combat with jaw-dropping style, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation harnesses the raw power and speed of the TRANSFORMERS characters for a totally unique and electrifying action experience. Chain together moves – shifting between robot and vehicle forms on the fly – to fuel massive attacks, combos and counters against the towering forces of the DECEPTICONS.
Legendary Characters – Leaping from the screen with vibrant color and bold edges, PlatinumGames’ take on the TRANSFORMERS brand evokes the classic look of their origins with modern cel-shaded animation and visual effects. Renowned series voice actors like Dan Gilvezan, Frank Welker and Peter Cullen have returned to bring life to this monumental battle between good and evil.
A Galactic Showdown – Igniting with an original story inspired by classic TRANSFORMERS comic book adventures, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation races between Cybertron and Earth toward a climactic confrontation between the heroes of the AUTOBOTS and the leaders of the DECEPTICONS. Play as OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE, WHEELJACK and GRIMLOCK – each upgradeable with new weapons, stats and skills – to take down MEGATRON, DEVASTATOR and their allies.
Transformers: Devastation is available in stores and online now! We have a full review of Transformers: Devastation. We’ve also invited various members of the TFW2005 staff to share their thoughts on the game. Read on to check it out and feel free to share your thoughts on the game as well.
