Ok to rent

This game was ok. Not as good as War for Cybertron and def not better than Fall of Cybertron. I enjoyed it because I love the transformers, but I am glad I rented it and not paid 60 bucks for it. I rented it for PS4, but its obvious that they just got the ps3 version to play on the 4. Graphics aren't ps4, not that graphics bother me. Graphics don't make or break a game for me otherwise I wouldn't still play Mario on nes.

Pros:
--Peter Cullen reprises Optimus
--The change into vehicle form any time
--playing various new characters, including an insecticon

Cons:
--Story is confusing
--Voice acting not so good. Even peter Cullen couldn't save it. Cheesy one liners said at complete random. Even optimus yelled out watch out!....when he was alone..
--Enemy damage is way too unforgiving. this isn't demon souls. Even on normal you can die pretty quick once your shield runs out. oh, and your shield sucks too.
--weapon upgrade system

I found that you do the most damage and take the less damage in vehicle form, use it often.

So this game is the third entry in the new transformer game series, and it has some good things and some issues. So lemme go through them all.

The Good
-The characters have specials such as drifts sword dashing ability which is rather cool.
-Combines both the G1 and the Movie universes
-Peter cullen is voicing Optimus as usual
-Transformer action

The Bad
-The Voice acting aside from a few characters is downright terrible.
-The story is nothing amazing
-For ps4 the graphics look like ps2.
-Doesnt innovate enough

So all in all, this was a step back from the previous two games, if you enjoyed them and you enjoy transformer then yes rent this or even buy it for less than 20 bucks. I enjoyed it but it is not something I would pick up over and over. Fall of Cybertron is still the best TF game.

Whether you're a fan of the genre, or just a gamer, there's somethin for you here. The game plays more like a lost season of the series, than one ofv the movies. Gameplay is tough at first, and checkpoints can be pretty scarce at times. But the ability to play as 30+ different characters, all with different vehicles and as abilities, well compensates for the difficulty. Definitely worth the rent.
