Let me just get in here real quick and take the liberty to make it clear that I’m not slating the PlayStation 4 in any way. In the battle for the top spot between the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox one, the PS4 is winning so far in sales, but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. Here’s 5 PlayStation games we think you should never play.
Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark
Usually the transition between video game to a feature length film is a rocky one, to put it bluntly: they never work out. After Michael Bay massacred the Transformers franchise with his films, we turned to gaming in hopes to reignite some of that nostalgia of the good old days.
Well contrary to the title, a spark is exactly what this game lacked. ‘Drab’ is a compliment to what this game has to offer, it’s a linear story of stopping the bad guys from finding said spark, and that’s pretty much it. The game tries to be creative by allowing you to switch teams between Decepticons and Autobots, but it’s pretty wild and switches unevenly. And lets be honest, team switching isn’t exactly something innovative anymore, we figured how horribly wrong it can go with Halo 5.
One redeeming factor I will mention, however small, is the large arsenal of weapons, which is expected when you’re a 40 foot, outer-space, vehicle/robot hybrid. Bay massacred the films, but he was what the game was lacking. If you’re looking for a linear game with a forgetful plot and average action, pick this game up in your nearest store. It’ll be in the pre-owned section for half price.
So whoever thought that Tetris, a simple puzzle game that people of all ages can play, needed a re-boot on a next-gen console needs to give their head a shake.
To start, there’s nothing ‘Ultimate’ about it. It’s Tetris, there’s nothing much you can do with a game like that, besides maybe add some dubstep and bright explosions like Pac-Man did, that’s how you re-boot a classic. It’s adequate. If you like Tetris then go ahead, I’m not judging. However, don’t pay $9.99 for this and expect things to be different from the classic version you used to play in the back of your dads car on your handheld.
Besides a few frame rate issues, there’s nothing wrong with this game, but there’s nothing right with it either. It all depends on how much you like Tetris.
