Review: Transformers Prime on Wii U is no Fall of Cybertron, but still quite enjoyable
29 November 2012
Excerpt: When it comes to developing Transformers games that don't have tie-ins with High Moon Studios' Fall of Cybertron , the first question that probably comes to mind is "Why bother?" After all, when the long-awaited sequel arrived a couple of months ago, it set a new standard for licensed game quality that few folks will barely be able to match.
Review: Transformers Prime - The Game provides good fan service, but motion controls get in the way of the fun

Excerpt: Given how popular Transformers Prime is with the kiddos (and the kiddos at heart), it only made sense for Activision to publish a Wii title based on the computer-animated show. The 3DS version of the game proved to be a solid handheld title. The Wii rendition of Transformers Prime - The Game is, for the most part, an enjoyable romp, as well.
Summary: There is enough here for fans of the cartoon to enjoy, at least for a couple of hours. Non-fans don’t really have a compelling reason to play the game unless they want to test their skills in the realm of platform jumping as a sentient car.
Review: Transformers Prime for 3DS is rusty but surprisingly well-oiled
14 November 2012
Excerpt: Before we start, yes, Transformers Prime , out now from Nowpro and Activision, is an adaptation of a popular TV cartoon that’s been released under the same exact name for every last Nintendo console in existence, with little to no difference in basic content between each, despite the vast differences between the machines they’re played on.
Conclusion: "Transformers Prime The Game" does quite a few things well, especially considering it's a licensed title, but its brevity severely detracts from the overall game. Even the youngest of players should be able to finish the story in a short amount of time, and after that there's nothing of any true value to really make you want to go back and replay the stages. Only hardcore Transformer fans should pick this one up at full retail price.
Conclusion: "Transformers Prime" ist ein Spiel, welches ziemlich gut funktioniert - es macht Spaß, mal ein paar Schurken zu verprügeln, indem man einfach sinnlos Knöpfchen drückt. Aber dennoch fehlt dem Titel einiges, was ein gutes Spiel braucht: Eine angemessene Spielzeit, die nicht durch endlos erscheinende Kämpfe in die Länge gezogen wird, und ein passender Schwierigkeitsgrad.
