Ken McKown writes: Optimus Prime, how have you continued to tug at my nostalgia year-in, and year-out? Growing up such a huge fan of the Transformers brand, it is hard not to get excited every time a new movie or game is on the horizon, especially after the fantastic job High Moon Studios did with the Cybertron series last generation. Rise of the Dark Spark however, is a completely new developer; one with a few solid ports and a unique free-to-play shooter under their belts. These facts gave me hope for the latest adventure with robots in disguise. Rise of the Dark Spark is not an amazing game, but it does enough to satisfy the hunger for more giant robot destruction.
