Review and Preview – Transformers: Redemption

INTO THE WILD! The Dinobots engaged in some of the most brutal missions of the war—which made them damaged goods in the peace. Now, a mission to change the face of Cybertron offers a chance for something they never imagined… redemption.

The Dinobots, Slug especially, have been walking around with chips on their shoulders for a long time. Disliking Autobots and Decepticons alike, Slug looks for meaning in the bottom of an engex bottle up until someone waves a briefcase of money in his face. He takes the deal for one reason, justifies it with another reason, and ends up finishing the deal in a way that surprises even him.

Review: Transformers Devastation – Xbox One

Review: Transformers Devastation – Xbox One

There was really something special about the 80s, specifically with our Saturday morning cartoons. While most were there to sell countless amounts of plastic toys, there were those special series that still managed to keeps their spark, in particular the leader of the Autobots: Optimus Prime. What’s truly fascinating is he has stood the test of time as my son is obsessed with him.

I had an opportunity to play Transformers Devastation while at Hands on Transformers Devastation, and it only took a couple of minutes of gameplay to have me add this to my gaming queue. I’ve had the title for roughly a week and have torn through it. How does it compare to the other Transformer titles? Is this game more than meets the eye?

Hands On Impression – Transformers Devastation

I’ve been attending San Diego Comic Con International since the late 90s and there is one booth that always seems to be the first stop. The Hasbro booth is not only one of the largest booths, but you can’t help but stop and admire the rather large collection of Transformers as they are more then meets the eye.

While doing my routine stop, I happened to notice something a little different this year, there has been TVs in the past, but this one featured Platinum Games: Transformers Devastation. Even better, it happened to be a playable demo. Has Platinum Games made the ultimate Transformers game, or are we looking at another Legend of Korra.
