Transformers Devastation is a 2015 fighting game developed by Platinum Games and published by Activision. Although its aesthetics and story are heavily inspired by that of The Transformers television series, the game is in fact a prequel to the Transformers: Combiner Wars comic.[1][2]

Gameplay

Transformers Devastation is a hack-and-slash game much like Platinum's other games such as Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising. The game is very fast-paced and you can choose from Optimus, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Wheeljack, and Grimlock.
