The announcement of Transformers: Prime the Game set a very worrying precedent. What is the franchise going to do with a game that may annoy a fan base of a beloved franchise? Let's face it, good Transformers games have been very few and far between. We're going into the idea that this one will not be much different on the quality scale.

But then again, perhaps Transformers: Prime the Game could surprise us and makes some amends? The show the game is based on is pretty good and serves up the potential to make a decent game. Then again, we see this time and time again that a game spawning from great lore turns out to be remarkably average at best. But let's give Transformers: Prime the Game a go anyway.

Rolling Out Once Again

The narrative may come as no surprise, basically because every Transformers media uses the same storyline. Optimus Prime and his Autobots are battling against Megatron and his Decepticons for whatever reason. That's just how it goes, apparently. It's safe to say that Transformers: Prime the Game won't inspire you in terms of story, but what's a bit of a wake-up call is that the gameplay is actually decent.

It's easy for a brawler game to be a bit lackluster, but what's surprising is that Transformers: Prime the Game actually introduces a fair bit of variety in its missions. You'll find that overtimes, you'll undertake a range of objectives, including combat, escape, exploration, and other little things that spice up the overall gameplay. Even though the narrative isn't brilliant, it doesn't really need to be - the game is fun!

You'll play as different characters across both factions, where no two feel the same. Each has its own game personality and control mechanism, offering different ways to defeat your foes. You can use lasers, fists, or more significantly - you can even descend into vehicle mode for more creative ways to accomplish your objectives.

The variety and diversity in the game are an eye-opener into what Transformers games can be should there be some effort. Transformers: Prime the Game may not be the most stunning brawler, but you can't write it off. It's a good game, and really the fun doesn't stop until its end. This little number was a surprise, considering most games based on TV series are questionable.

Machines That Work

Suppose you put Transformers: Prime the Game up against other similar media-based titles like Thor: God of Thunder. In that case, it's miles ahead in terms of quality. Perhaps the biggest shock is that the expectations going into this game were low. Somehow the franchise decided they needed a decent match to pair with the TV series and made it happen.

8

Transformers: Prime the Game is by no means the best brawler out there, but it's good enough to make you actually want to play it and finish it, for that matter. The narrative isn't exciting, but players will get a thrill from controlling the characters they've come to know and love in more engaging fashions. It's worth the drive!
