TF DarkSpark

Is this what we got in celebration of Transformers's 30th anniversary?!

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is a third-person shooter game based on the Transformers franchise, developed by Edge of Reality in 2014. It serves as a "multiversal" crossover between the Michael Bay movie Age of Extinction and the games War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron.

Plot

The game’s story is centered around the Dark Spark, a powerful relic capable of traveling into other universes. The movie-verse Autobots and Aligned-verse Autobots alike fight to prevent the Dark Spark from being used by the Decepticons.

Why it Sucks

NOTE: PC and console (non-portable) versions only

  1. The story is quite a wasted potential; it is inconsistent with their source material, and full of plotholes, not to mention continuity errors.
  2. Bland Transformer designs, making it hard to tell between who is an Autobot and who is a Decepticon, a flaw shared with the Michael Bay movies.
  3. Poor voice acting safe for Peter Cullen, who reprises his role as Optimus Prime.
  4. Dull and overly formulaic level design.
  5. Stiff controls, especially if you’re on vehicle mode.
  6. Only one multiplayer mode: Escalation, which is basically a co-op survival mode. To make things worse, this mode is absent from the Wii U version.

Reception

The game is met with mixed-to-negative reviews from critics. It currently has a score of 43 in Metacritic, from 32 reviews, and is widely considered to be one of the worst Transformers games ever made.
