Earlier we spoke of improving character, and this is because the game includes an entertaining progression system based weapons. When we are in the Ark you can select any of the five playable characters that we have available ( Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Wheeljack and Grimlock ), highlighting what they are distinct from each other in style of play.
Here you can select the four weapons that we want to take into battle(change from one to another by pressing, something we can do even in the middle of a combo in the crosshead to its corresponding address), improve them by merging them, invest in leveling our statistics Autobots (eye with this, it is important for more advanced levels of difficulty and quite noticeable), buy and sell items or equipment, and develop a chip that improve our characters.
The only problem we found here is that the management of weapons is extremely cumbersome , since along obtain many levels that are pure trash and only serve to sell or improve that more we use. The trouble is that we can only synthesize a weapon every time (you use a database and this gets experience and skills to “consume” the other), so the process is very slow and there will be few times devote ourselves to sell almost everything not to be synthesizing weapons one by one, because to do so you have to repeat the step by step process from the beginning.
Another of the aspects that we missed in the game is the presence of the Decepticons as playable characters , so you would not have any additional state chapter’s playing with them or a campaign dedicated to the role of villains.Moreover, despite what they are distinct five Autobots have seemed few (although those could not be more iconic) and we are left with the desire to play with some of our favorites.
In terms of graphics, but does not hide its origin as an intergenerational game, the truth is that looks great thanks to its artistic design focused on recreating G1 as faithfully as possible, but beware, because not all designs are of the original series, and also we will find some robots in its version of Combiner Wars, as Menasor . Modeling of Transformers is great and it is a great pleasure to see them move through how much you have looked all animations. The scenarios could be slightly better, as sometimes guilty of some interactive and too simple, but that does not stop visually get transport us with confidence to a very dear season for many of us.
Finally, the sound brings a soundtrack with many guitar playing that gets put us squarely on the action and drive up the adrenaline, some sound effects taken directly from the series and a fantastic voice captained by the legendary Peter Cullen , who lends his voice to Optimus Prime.
Transformers: Devastation is not just an exercise in nostalgia to be attractive to all who grew up playing us with these transformable toys and watching his adventures on television, also it is a great action game that proudly wears the hallmark of Platinum Games to offer an odyssey fun, varied, frantic, faithful to the license in which it is based and with many hours ahead if we are to take advantage beyond its main story. Whether you are fans of Transformers or not, you enjoy a little good hack and slash , here’s a highly recommended purchase we will probably want to miss.
