I was sent a copy of Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark for the Wii U so that I could play it and review it. Opinions of the game are 100% my own.

I have played many Transformers video games in the past. Most of them were based on the movies and one based on the Transformers Prime cartoon. They were pretty decent but lacked something. They were rigid in that the characters couldn’t transform at will and the worlds weren’t immersive enough.

It is awesome!

Only when the kids are in bed or out of the house do I switch to the full TV Screen to play. Continue reading Video Game Review: Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark Wii U Version
