A blast with Trans­form­ers past

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Trans­form­ers: Dev­as­ta­tion

If Michael Bay’s Trans­former re­vamp leaves you cold, then this old- school re­visit to Op­ti­mus and Co will be right up your street.

Fol­low­ing a mis­sion­based struc­ture, you take on the 1980s ver­sions of the Au­to­bots and De­cep­ti­cons and, while the ac­tion is fairly lin­ear, there is room for ex­plo­ration, of­ten lead­ing to hid­den se­crets or ways by which larger com­bat ar­eas can be skipped en­tirely if you so choose.

How­ever, the com­bat is quite fun, with a combo sys­tem that, to me, struck the right bal­ance be­tween be­ing com­plex enough to keep things in­ter­est­ing and sim­ple enough so as not to over­whelm.

Robots in dis­guise Dev­as­ta­tion is retro fun
