GAMING REVIEW: TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE DARK SPARK (XONE/PS4/WIIU/X360/PS3/3DS)

OUT NOW

The same as with the review for the latest Spider-man game a few weeks back – Transformers has taken two steps back after a step forward.

After impressing with two Cybertron-monikered iterations in 2010 and 2012, there’s no disguising these robots simply don’t cut it in this latest version – despite an impressive array of weaponry and decent multiplayer Escalation mode.

But sadly the storyline – as you switch between Autobots and Decepticons missions – is fairly dull, the ‘transforming’ and fighting mechanics extremely clunky – and despite the odd glimpse of ingenuity ends up looking rather dated.

Rating: 2/5
