Here is my report: This game looks awesome. And it might just be the game I didn't even know I was looking for.
I am, I admit, the target demographic. Transformers: Devastation is not a modern take on Hasbro's changeling robot franchise. These are not Michael Bay's Transformers. These are cel shaded recreations of their '80s incarnations, rendered in 3D to look like cartoons that burst into another dimension. And they look really good. I can't help but thinking, as two representatives from Platinum play through a couple of levels and discuss the game, that it looks just about exactly like what I pictured in my head when I was a kid. Video games have made playable cartoons possible, and somehow, impossibly, Optimus Prime was still here in 2015 to prove it.
