Transformers: Devastation Review | HNE Games

– Today, we are going to #review the #Transformers: #Devastation video game. Released in October 2015, this hack and slash video game is a love note to Generation One Transformers fans. From the classic 1984 character designs to most of the original voice cast reprising their roles, it is a treat to both the eyes and ears.

This video game starts with the Decepticons finding another McGuffin in the form of rare plasma energy. The Constructicons are tasked with tearing up the city to dig out a ship baried beneath, named the Proud Star. The Proud Star was created by Nova Prime as a time capsule for Cybertronian culture and knowledge. The Autobot’s goal is to save the ship’s core, the Ferrotaxis. The Decepticon’s goal is to drain the core of its plasma energy. Optimus Prime leads Grimlock, Bumblebee, Wheeljack and Sideswipe into action in typical fashion.

Once Starscream extracts the core from the ship, he loses control and it crashes into another part of the city. With Wheeljack needing time to patch the damaged core, Menasor attacks the Autobots and tosses the core to the Decepticons in their lair. The Decepticons then escape in a space bridge and head to Cybertron with the Autobots in pursuit. After defeating Blitzwing, the Autobots find Shockwave, where he tells them that the core’s purpose was to terraform Earth into a New Cybertron.

After battling the Insecticons, Optimus comes to the conclusion that Nova was corrupted by some entity while in space, changing the purpose of the Ferrotaxis. After Soundwave’s defeat, Magatron takes the Ferrotaxis to Earth with plans to terraform the planet. Megatron and Optimus battle for the Ferrotaxis. After losing, Megatron tosses the Ferrotaxis into space where the Insecticons, drawn to its power, gather around it. Optimus and Megaton follow the Insecticons into space where Optimus detroys the Ferrotaxis and disables the Insecticons.

After being repaired, Optimus and Wheeljack receive a message on Teletraan-1 from Defensor and Superion. The combiners swear to protect the Earth and then Optimus indicates that protecting the planet may eventually also lead to the end the ongoing war. After the credits is a post-credit scene that I will not spoil here.

This video game is a single player, hack and slash. As each character is utilized in the story mode, they gain experience. There is some limited character customization, with some items only functional for specific characters. Items have varying specifications and some can be combined to create more powerful items that increase specific statistics. Characters can be selected before each mission, once unlocked. There are even a few downloadable characters.

Each stage features a traversal area with light puzzles, an open area for wave battles and finally a boss battle. Each wave battle is typically against a combination of Insecticon, Seeker and/or Vehicon armies. The boss battles are against named Decepticons, such as the combiner, Devastator and triple-changer, Blitzwing. Transformations can occur at any time and allow for a unique way to battle.

The control scheme features heavy and light attacks as well as a special move, blocking, dodging and transforming. In addition to the story mode, there is an archive, episode select and a challenge mode.

The graphics are cell shaded, somewhere between then original animated series and the Netflix War For Cybertron series. The art style, however, is entirely based upon the original series. Most of the original voice cast reprise their classic roles. Some music is carried forward as well.

If you love the Generation One Transformers animated series and also enjoy hack and slash video games, then this video game is what you need. While there is some repetition in battles, the action rarely gets stale. As of the time of this writing, the game has been delisted and may only be available in secondary markets.
