I Hope This Doesn’t Rule Out A Big Boy Transformers Prime Game

I Hope This Doesn’t Rule Out A Big Boy Transformers Prime Game

While the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 get what’s shaping up to be a pretty spectacular Fall of Cybertron, Nintendo Wii, 3DS and DS players get this.

Now I am not saying this isn’t an excellent Transformers Prime game. I’ve not played it, so for all I know it could be spectacular. It just looks like origami robots in disguise.

This wouldn’t be a bad thing if Transformers Prime weren’t such a pretty CGI cartoon series. It’s so lovely I bought the entire first season on Blu-ray even though it was already available on Netflix. I am a dedicated fan.

So I hope that we dedicated fans eventually get a Transformers Prime game as dark and pretty as the series.

Until then, we’ve got this, coming later this year from Activision and developers Now Production (Wii, 3DS) and Altron Corporation (DS). Hooray.


  • What a cop-out. As much as I enjoyed the TF:Prime show (surprisingly smart and self-referential), this game looks like dogshit next to the Fall of Cybertron game.

  • Well, it is on lower-end consoles. I’m impressed that they managed to get the entire regular cast onboard.

    I really like the Prime series, and I’m hopeful (but not really expecting) Fall of Cybertron to have more references to the Prime series, other than the Decepticon warship and Cliffjumper’s head design.
