Holiday Gift Ideas -- TRANSFORMERS PRIME The Game on Nintendo 3DS, DS and Wii (Review)

"Based on the smash hit, award-winning animated television show produced by Hasbro Studios on The Hub Network, TRANSFORMERS PRIME is now available on Nintendo Wii™, 3DS™and DS™! PRIME lets fans play as their favorite AUTOBOT characters and embark on an action-packed adventure to save the earth from the evil MEGATRON and his new secret weapon.  Along the way, gamers cultivate friendships with Jack, Miko and Raf – the human characters from the show – as TEAM PRIME sets out to protect mankind and eliminate the DECEPTICONS once and for all.  

TRANSFORMERS PRIME will also be available on Wii U beginning November 18, 2012. Rated “E10+” (Everyone 10 and older – Fantasy Violence), PRIME will be a hit in any household as fans make their way through intense multiplayer modes, as one of 11 different TRANSFORMERS characters.

§  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.

My Thoughts:

My husband was excited to review this recent Wii release, as he has been a fan of Transformers since a child, and especially loves the hit movies that released over the past few years.  I have also found myself intrigued by this popular franchise, as the animation of both the Autobots and Decepticons is stellar.  And, the action and fighting sequences really draw you in.  Like the animated series and major motion picture films, this video game does an amazing job at making you feel like you are part of the action.  This game allows you to play solo, or in a multi-player platform with up to 11 people.  

If you are fans of Transformers, then you will love being able to be Bubblebee or Bulkhead, as you join forces with the humans to bring down the Decepticons.  Through battle sequences and captivating story lines, this new video game, which is available for the Nintendo Wii™ and Wii U, 3DS™and DS™, will have fans hooked the moment the game begins.  My husband ended up pulling an all-nighter just to beat the game.  And, since then, he continues to play by choosing other Autobots characters. 

So, if you have a Transformers Prime fan in your house, young or old, why not surprise them this upcoming holiday season with this new video game from Activision?  

Disclosure:  I was sent a sample copy of this game from the vendor in order to write up an honest review. The views above are mine and mine alone.
