Transformers: Devastation Review
You got the touch! You got the power!
Platinum Games are known for their prowess in creating satisfying action games. They've proved themselves, time and time again, with titles like the masterful Bayonetta 1 & 2, the action packed Vanquish, and the over-the-top Anarchy Reigns. Likewise, they even did a fantastic job taking over the reigns of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
However, Platinum was charged with making a licensed game based on The Legend of Korra, and the result was fairly mediocre. While the game wasn't bad by any means, the combat was nowhere near as satisfying as previous Platinum games. Needless to say, it made me wary when a Transformers game was announced by the same team.
Thankfully, Transformers: Devastation does a lot of things right. It's not perfect, and it probably won't be a substitute for action games like Bayonetta or Metal Gear Rising, but it's a competent action game that feels great to play.
So let's take a look at what's good, what should have been improved, and our final verdict.
