Review Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (3DS)
A decent game in disguise
After reviewing the absolutely horrid Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark on Wii U, it would be hard to get our hopes up for the 3DS iteration if it weren't for the name on the back of the box. Unlike every other version of the game, Rise of the Dark Spark on 3DS was produced by the handheld experts at WayForward...
About The Game
Serving as a follow-up to both the upcoming live-action film Transformers: Age of Extinction and Activision's Transformers: War for Cybertron and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron titles, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark jumps worlds and factions as it weaves the tale of the hunt for an ancient relic as powerful as the Matrix of Leadership – the Dark Spark.
Players will be able to switch between the heroes of the noble Autobots and the nefarious Decepticons (over 40 playable characters in total) throughout the single-player campaign. Similar to High Moon Studios' Cybertron entries in the highly regarded series, gameplay features nimble, fast-paced running-and-gunning combat paired with traversal and vehicle action across open battlefields for dynamic large-scale conflicts.
Players will also see the return of the fan-favourite multiplayer mode Escalation, which delivers wave-based survival-style gameplay for up to four players online cooperatively. It features upgradeable defence systems, recognisable adversaries from the lore, and an expanded roster of playable characters from past and present.
Additionally, an exciting new levelling system transforms single-player and multiplayer into one unified, persistent character development path. Experience earned in any part of the game unlocks potent awards and tactical loadout choices – including new characters, stronger weapons, special abilities, and consumable bonuses – for use throughout the entire game.
The only thing that leans me away from the game is that its an RPG. But otherwise, can't say its bad.
Perhaps this is a good glimpse of what Rise of the Dark Spark could've been had they been given more time, and High Moon Studios was the one making the game.
