Beat the campaign in 1 day it was pretty good. Escalation eh online is really laggy. The graphics may not be next gen but hey i enjoyed the gameplay. So hopefully they will have next gen graphics in a new transformers game so yea worth renting but not worth buying.
I just don't understand how you can have 2 decent Transformer games in a row and then regress to this. The only thing I found semi decent about this game was the graphics. Neither transforming or combat was fun. Everything felt clunky. Another movie game where they are just trying to make a quick buck.

I am going to keep this review very brief since this game doesn't have much to talk about.
First off, this game is a prequel to the newest movie that just hit theaters on June 27,2014, Age of Extinction. So if you are not caught up with the stories then watch all the transformers movies and even the War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron games before playing the Rise of the Dark Spark game.
Second is that the game is about the various factions of the Transformers trying to stop Lockdown from using the Dark Spark, or even using it for their evil plans. Also the Dark Spark is basically the Dark Side version of Optimus Prime and do so much more things instead of just imparting wisdom, like pausing time and such. It is a great story if you a transformers fan but for an average game this is a great game for kids and young teens.
Graphics and Sound quality I have to say doesn't bode well for the PS4 version. Its like a outdated PS3 game that is updated a bit for output at 1080p HD. It's not bad but it is okay look since this game is done both next gen and current gen systems. The only great thing about it is the particle effects of smoke, smog, dust and such are way more detailed on the PS4 than the current gen versions, probably same for Xbox One and maybe Wii U versions. Sound is great but the music the only thing is well done about this game.
Gameplay is fun and entertain if the game was lower priced. Unlockables and online features like the Escalation mode will keep anyone busy for a little while but not for long.
Overall I give this game a 6 out of 10. Its an Alright Transformers game anyway.
