I am going to start off this post by saying that when I was asked if I wanted to play Transformers: Devastation at E3, my was brain saying no, but my face said yes. I am glad that I did, because I would have missed out on previewing one of the best games at E3 this year. I spent about 15 minutes playing the game, which was just enough time to make me wish that it was the Fall already so that I could continue playing.
Transformers: Devastation is being developed by PlatinumGames Inc, who you may know as the peeps behind Bayonetta and other successful character action games. Platinum, I am pleased to announced, has knocked it out of the park with this one. I say this because, despite my little time with the game at E3, it is clear that Transformers: Devastation is being developed by the right group of people.
Transformers: Devastation successfully delivers on the fast-paced action that Platinum is often associated with, even though the AUTOBOTS are big and clunky. Transformers: Devastation looks, feels and plays like a childhood dream come true; fast, fun, and exciting.
Outside of the action, one other great thing about the game is that a considerable amount of the original voice cast are respiring their roles for these iconic characters. Devastation will tell an entirely new story based off of the Transformers comic books.
In carrying the tradition of classic Transformers, Devastation’s art style is astounding. Featuring wonderfully polished cel-shaded graphics, Transformers: Devastation looks like a throwback to the 80s cartoons that gamers are sure to appreciate.
I was quite weary of what to expect once I started to play Transformers: Devastation, but I am glad I did. It has the promise to be a truly great and special game not only for Transformers fans, but for any fan of action packed games. The game is set to release this Fall for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, and PC.
