Transformers: Devastation is and hack-and-slash video game based on the Transformers franchise. The game is currently unavailable in digital marketplaces due to the expiration of Activision’s license deal with the franchise owners Hasbro.
The game takes place during the Insecticons attack on New York City. The story follows the Autobots: Optimus Prime, Sideswipe, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and Grimloc on their fight with Insecticons and Megathron who wants to cyberform the Earth making it a new home planet for Cybertronians.
Structurally, Devastation consists of seven chapter with several missions in each. The gameplay shares many similarities with other Platinum Games’ titles, especially with Bayonetta series.
You can choose one of three main characters. Each of them has unique characteristics, ranged and melee weapons and abilities. The game incorporates a dodging system similar to that of Bayonetta. Dodge made at the right moment causes time to slow down for enemies, giving the player the ability to relocate or perform a series of attacks without any resistance. Every Autobot can transform into a particular vehicle, which gives new possibilities and moves to the player.
The game has many collectibles, unlockable items, weapons, and a crafting system based on loot you get from enemies and chest scattered across the levels.
