Jump into your Underoos and grab a bowl of your favorite, sugar-bomb cereal as we dive into the best toy commercial cartoon show of our childhood! It's Autobots verses Deceptacons as Optimus Prime and his friends vie to protect the Earth from Megatron in Platinum Games' rock-em sock-em, action filled title, Transformers: Devastation.  

In this game, players control one of five Autobots: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Wheeljack, or Grimlock. Each Autobot is able to use a variety of melee attacks and ranged weapons, and are able to transform into their vehicle. Similar to Bayonetta, successfully dodging attacks activates Focus, which slows down time around the player, allowing them to counterattack opponents. Each Autobot also has a unique special ability and a powerful Overdrive attack that can be performed with enough energy. Players can also earn credits and gain new weapons by defeating enemies, destroying certain objects, and clearing puzzles hidden across each chapter. Credits can be used to purchase new items, moves, and weapons, forge T.E.C.H. to grant passive stat boosts, synthesize weapons to make them stronger, or increase the stats of each Autobot.

Devastation!  Zagnorch just hooked me up with a PS4 copy of this game.  I know it's on the PS3 and 360, but I really wanted to wait and play it on the current gen consoles.  I might have to break down and spring for a PS4 when I get my next paycheck Grin

Yes it is Devastation!  I have it on 360 and thinking about trying to grab a PS4 copy myself.

Anyone diving into this title this weekend?

I finished it last week, and although I enjoyed it perfectly well, it is admittedly a stark contrast as far as mental engagement from Vandal Hearts. That's what is great about the playthroughs though. Sometimes we go hard in the paint with a deep, heavy-thinking title, and sometimes we tee off on a hack-and-slash button masher.

Devastation is a button-masher for sure, but there's plenty to enjoy here. The nostalgia element alone is a very strong point.

Just finished Chapter 2, and got a C rank on both 1 & 2. I always forget how brutal Platinum developed titles are until I play one, and then Iím quickly reminded (and humbled!). Iím digging the authenticity of this so far. Itís definitely hitting the nostalgia button for me, as an original Transformers G1 fan. As with a lot of other Platinum action games, it has combat thatís probably deeper than what Iím exploring so far, but works reasonably well as a button masher also. Itís weird using what is effectively ďWitch TimeĒ in this game, but it doesnít feel as natural, or as refined, as that of Bayonetta 1 or 2. That said, it has the license going for it, and that helps carry it somewhat.

Was playing again last night, and can I just say...Blitzwing is a freaking jerkface!  Holy cow, is that a hard enemy.  I had a little trouble with Megatron in the initial fight, and again with Starscream, but man, Blitzwing is giving me real problems.  I'm hoping to get over that hump this evening, but yowza, he sure is difficult.

What difficulty are you playing on?

To the surprise of nobody, I played on the easiest difficulty.

I picked this one up a couple weeks ago. I'm excited to learn it's only 5-6 hours long.
