In an effort to merge High Moon Studios’ successful Cybertron series with the movie tie-ins based on the Michael Bay films, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is a muddled mess that drags the Cybertron series down in the process.
New hero (or antihero), new superpowers, and a new open-world, as a half-sequel, half-reboot of the franchise, InFamous Second Son expands upon the strengths of its predecessors but it doesn’t manage to offer anything genuinely new to the genre.
