I am a video game nut. I have played more hours of video games than I care to admit. In high school I would spend countless hours on the weekends playing video games. If you are reading this and thinking…wow..you must have been really lame….you would be right. I did not care what anybody thought of me. All those hours behind a controller have made me pretty good at playing games. My husband doesn’t exactly hate video games but he doesn’t care for them BUT he has a soft spot in his heart for transformers so he was willing to test this game out with me.
Here is a little preview clip to get you excited about the game:
- Jump Straight into the Action, TRANSFORMERS style ? With the fate of humanity on the brink of survival, players will fight through heroic battles in a huge variety of 3rd person action brawling, shooting, driving and melee combat, all the while wielding the power to change form and power up each AUTOBOT with unique weapons and special abilities.
- Play as Iconic and Fan-Favorite Characters ? Fans will get to play as all their favorite characters from the show including OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, ARCEE and more to defeat MEGATRON, STARSCREAM, THUNDERWING and the DECEPTICON army.
- Explore a Brand New Storyline to Continue the Saga ? The game centers around an epic campaign with original story set directly within the TRANSFORMERS PRIME universe, allowing players to forge close relationships with the humans Jack, Miko and Raf and embark on a journey to exotic locales such as Greece, South America and even outer space.
- Challenge Your Friends and Test Your TRANSFORMERS skills ? Players can choose from 11 different playable characters across both AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS to compete with or against their friends in adrenaline-pumping modes such as Brawl, Battle for Energon and Emblem Match (only on the Wii and 3DS). Wii fans can play local split-screen multiplayer and 3DS fans can play over Wi-Fi.
Activision continues to impress me with their game offerings!
The story follows team Prime (Good Guys) as they try and stop the
Decepticons from obtaining a asteroid sized chunk of dark energon. You
take on the role of a different Autobot with each mission starting with
Optimus Prime. Since OP is a fan favorite he was who I enjoyed playing the most.
I was able to figure out the controls fairly quickly. I normally have a slow time learning a new game but with this one I was playing and having fun in no time. You have to swing the wiimote to use a melee
attack but for shooting, transforming and jumping you press the buttons.
Each character has their own special attacks and power ups. I liked that the voices of the characters that we have come to know and love in the
Transformers Prime cartoon are the same voices in the game.
The graphics were awesome. I felt like I was actually in the cartoon. I have played a few other Transformers games in the past but this one is definitely my favorite. I liked the flow of the game as well as the objectives in game play.
I am also a big fan of playing games against my husband. This game is no exception. Tons of multiplayer fun. I hate when a game lacks good multiplayer fun.
Overall this is a great game for the Transformers fan in your household. Transformers Prime Wii game would make for an exceptionally awesome gift this Holiday Season!
You can buy Transformers Prime on Amazon for $39.96.
