Let’s Not Forget About Transformers Prime

Let’s Not Forget About Transformers Prime

Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Assassin’s Creed III are nice and all, but where are the giant animated robots? Right here, babycakes.

The Wii U version of Transformers Prime hits November 18. It looks much prettier.


  • Holy Hell. That looks like it was made for the Nintendo 64!
    Awful graphics are probably par for the course for the Wii; but those clunky lag inducing fight scenes are just bad form.
    I’m not sure if this is supposed to be a remake of a much worse, 64 era game; but the plot and dialog certainly make it look like that.
    Not that you can really take transformers seriously when giant robots turn into a car; on their home planet! Where they did not have cars! Whatever. They could have at least Tried to make it not take itself so seriously. How many times can you listen to Megatron scream “I will destroy you” and not think that he is just a giant hilarious caricature.
    There is just no possible reason for this. Even the recent “Return to Cybertron” had some ideas about moving the franchise forwards away from the original stupidity.
    Looks terrible. Which is exactly what we expected from them.

    • Nintendo 64 is an extreme exaggeration. Gamecube/Wii, yeah. But even Wii looks good when ran at a HD resolution.

      • Alright, I will concede that it is probably up to GameCube standards (which is still better than most wii titles)
        But this is the ‘Wii U’ the console Nintendo is trying to compete against Xbox360 and PS3 with.
        The first thing they should be trying to do is too show that their little motion control/tablet (sorry “gamepad”) integrated console is of graphical quality; in order to justify the price (which by itself Is not awful, but skyrockets when you add the gamepad, controllers, and any other peripherals.
        And it’s just not good enough.

  • Good lord, this looks like it was made for the PS2.

    I know for a fact that the Wii U has FAR more potential than this.

    Lazy dev teams at its worst.
