All in all, the game is coming together quite nicely, taking the franchise to a genre that it’s never really visited before. The cartoon art style will appeal to the younger generation, while the gameplay should reach older fans who’ve rinsed everything they can out of XCOM. Through there’s a Transformers story and characters that all fans of robots in disguise should enjoy.
