Next month Activision will release Transformers Devastation, a new game that looks every bit like the '80s cartoon series come to life. It even features the voice of Optimus Prime himself, Peter Cullen. Fun fact, Transformers began in the '80s as a cartoon series that was created to sell a line of toy robots that transformed into different types of cars. Naturally, it was a hit. Then, they had the smart idea to kill off all the major characters in a movie to make way for a new line of toys.
Which is why when head of the Autobots Optimus Prime died, that single event ended up being traumatic on a cataclysmic level for a number of kids. Which is why even though the recent Michael Bay-directed films were based on a cartoon series that was based on a toy line, they were still seen as completely soulless to Transformers fans.
Which brings us to Transformers Devastation, a new game from Activision and Platinum Games. Even small glimpses of it in action does more for the franchise than Marky Mark ever could. It feels like the real Transformers.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, they brought back Optimus Prime in the cartoon series. Turns out that killing off a character that kids loved was not the smartest idea in the world.
