Haven Review: Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark

First up is our disclaimer.  We got this game because we wanted to review it, and as such all views in this article our are own. No money has been exchanged for this review.  TransformersAnnounce_Screen2

Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark based around the movie Transformers. You think the game would be good but tragically it is far from it. The controls at times are clunky and slow and extremely hard to play with. The character development is based solely on what you would learn in the movies.Rise-Of-The-Dark-Spark-Is-New-Transformers-Game-Listing_jpg 1392391632

 

As well as the animated series if you watched it as a kid. It is interesting to see the two get tied in together but it feels forced and the game runs dry. Besides all this the games audio seems borrowed from the movies instead of having its own musical score.

Hoping that the soundtrack for the movie and the game would be good enough for both but it falls short of making the cut-scenes and gameplay come to life. The greatest sin of this game is its multiplayer where it just falls short and is non-existent. Is it a game worth getting?

Only if your buying it for your child other than that. Its one robotic disappointment.
