When I was young, Transformers was about heavily-armed robots who could transform into trucks and dinosaurs and cassette recorders yet mostly hung out with tedious humans talking about boring drama between them and some other robots they didn’t get on with, then sometimes they would all get into a disappointing fight. As far as I can tell, the main difference in Michael Bay’s Transformers is that the robofights are more exciting. Nostalgia’s not what it used to be.
High Moon Studios’ recent Transformers games were pretty good for robots fighting, so I hear, though their story universe is smooshed together with Bay’s movie world now that Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark launched yesterday. Look, I’ve got a video of some robots to prove it.
