Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark
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.
Where two worlds collide!
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.

Is it pretty? No. It's actually a little worse looking than Fall of Cybertron on PS3, and this is on PS4!
There are frequent pauses in gameplay as it loads the next part of the level, voice acting & script varies in quality, the generic bots you smash through are as generic as they were in the other two games....BUT, it essentially plays the same as War for, and Fall of, Cybertron. Which is a good thing, because those games were a lot of fun, so far the story isn't even comparable to those games, there is only one (!) multiplayer mode : Escalation. Which is disappointing as I loved playing Team Deathmatch in the previous games.
Is it worth the current price? Eh...probably not, but it is fun. There's no advantage to getting this on PS4 or XBONE so if you still have last gen console you're probably better off getting it on that (and waiting for a price drop).
Story wise it seems set between the 2 previous (non-film related) games, which can be...odd, at times. But yeah, worth checking out, I'm hoping they add more multiplayer options in DLC/Updates, oh, also : Grimlock is not a playable Character anymore judging from the selection screen in Escalation.
Somehow, things have gone backwards though. Graphics are quite poor for a PS4 game, it looks as though they've just made the version for ps3 and xbox360 and ported it across to ps4. The campaign mode was the first I tried, and it is very noticeable, that the difficulty is all over the place for it. There are 14 missions, that switch without warning or reason from Autobot to Decepticon, very unevenly. The dull audio and level design certainly don't help either, both being lame. There are plenty of weapons when you get into the game that service you well, and the 20 guns have distinct styles that look good. However, the enemies you will encounter are no fun. The special powers you get are vastly over or under powered, and the upgrading falls flat on its face, and has little or no impact.
The best part of the game, is undoubtedly Escalation mode (which is curiously absent on the Wii-U version), and is a co-op mode that lauches you and upto 3 team mates into 15 waves of progressively harder enemies on 8 maps.
Overall the game does have a few good things going for it, but all in all it feels like they are desperate to cash in on the new Transformers movie out at the same time (Age of Extinction). Disappointing. Worth a rent at best. But only if you are a massive Transformers fan. Otherwise leave well alone.
So Rise of the Dark Spark doesn't do me any favours, with the `Dark Spark' adding an even more convoluted element to the power sources that control the mechanical beings.
This Dark Spark gives the bearer the power to manipulate time and space, as well as to create zombiefied robots out of enemies. It's no Wonder Optimus Prime wants to remove it from prying hands of those who would use it for evil. Yes, Megatron, I'm talking about you. But this is a movie tie-in with the latest and fourth film in the franchise, so the whole Megatron saga is all in flashback form and the main villain of the piece is Lockdown (who just happens to the the main new Transformer in the latest movie). Overall, though, you'll just want to forget the convoluted story which desperately tries, and fails, to meld the two universes together.
The ultimate sin, though, is a post credits scene that will leave any old time fans wondering if the developer was playing some sick joke on them for the last few hours and is now just taunting them. At best it's a confusing addition to an already confusing story.
Developer Edge of Reality seemed to have phoned the gameplay on this one in. It's simply corridor after corridor, with only a few sparks (hah) of originality where grappling hooks come in.Read more ›
All we get is the 4 player CO-OP side of online play.
Though the co-op is alright in my opinion, I would much rather have had the 7-8 player team deathmatch style of online play.
Having said that the game is predominantly centred on the single player campaign that links to the 4th movie in the franchise. While I am at the early stages of playing this mode I would like to state that things certainly are put together a little bit lazily.
For example you would expect that a transformer like Bumblebee when in robot mode to be pretty tall when upright.. right? So now that the setting is on Earth you would expect him to be standing quite high compared to buildings. Well.... that's not what happens here. Like the other transformers featured they stand only a little bit taller than any human. It breaks the spell that this game should be spinning.
Ignoring the issues like the one mentioned, the story is pretty good. So there is something there for your hard earned money. However this game ends up at three stars in my opinion, stating quite strongly that this game is nowhere near the game it could have been.
