Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark - Review - YouTube
Now we can ignore it.
IGN every so often gets their reviews right, this is one of the example that proves my point.
This game is an absolute waste.
I thought it was fun. After all it is a tie in game like Dotm. The story wasn't the best. It's basically an expansion pack for FOC.
The game is a 6 at best.
7 I say. The only down points are the earth missions
Guess I'll wait for it to drop in price
$60 for what should have been a $20-30 download only title... This game is a massive joke.
Hacktivision running another franchise into the ground.
By making false claims about the campaign structure (FoC didn't have separate campaigns), criticising the music - that was reused from FoC (plus having a dislike for dubstep influence the score is somewhat unprofessional in my opinion) and criticising the gameplay - which was the same as FoC?
Sure, give the game a low score because it was weak in some areas but lowering the score based off of some aspects that were praised in the last game is nonsensical.
Sounds about right.
more like $10 DLC for FoC. this game was awful. id wait for it to hit a sale on steam or amazon, dont bother paying more than $15 for this junk. PC users, it's prone to randomly crash just to let you know.
Here's a great review I saw posted on youtube.
There was very few original music that was in the game (only one that I, admittedly, like). The rest were just imported from FOC. Of course they would criticize that, showing how lazy EOR is (even Nintendo bothers to remix or create original variations of classic tunes from their old titles).
Just like the music, the gameplay is FOC 2.0 DLC instead of "a brand new game". They praised the gameplay last time because it was "similar, but different" new to WFC. The weapons, the art direction and graphics, gameplay in FOC were similar to how it was set up in WFC, but expanded upon, changed, and/or upgrade to feel different and new. Even Warner Bros Montrel's Batman: Arkham Origins feels more original than this game (which is funny because the development, hype, and backlash for this game and B:AO is uncanny).
The only "new" thing that are even worth mentioning in ROTDS is the Escalation (which has its flaws, but it seems decent).
It's not like IGN or the other parts of the TFW community are the only ones saying this.
So, no, it's not nonsensical.
God this game lacked so much I'm very disappointed in it. Sure it was fun playing as AOE Grimlock, but.... goddamnit, the story confused me.
Well the story on Earth I like to pretend didn't happen, and it got ridiculously hard at times, and sometimes the characters are see-through during gameplay (not exaggerating,) but the Cybertron levels were just as fun as FoC. Which was awesome. I especially liked Jetfire's level for some reason- maybe the awesome British accents?
Anyway, this guy was terrible at the game, if that was him playing in the background. No wonder he didn't like it, he couldn't even aim straight.
Although I enjoyed the story the game was bad. The only real redeeming feature is escalation but I still think it should of got a OK rating.
The star map theme is my favorite piece of instrumental music from all of Transformers, and holds a lot of nostalgia and feels for me.
I was very sad to see it desecrated during the Sharpshot level.
This game really wasn't anything new or special but, it seems like those who hate this game the most expected too much. People saw the trailers yet still insisted on buying it full price then complain about it being disappointing and too expensive. This was a budget cash-grab not a AA game.
