I remember being really excited by the prospect of Platinum Games making a Transformers game. So much so that I went out of my way to interview the Director and Producer of Transformers: Devastation – the previous collaboration between Activision and Platinum. Of course, that game turned out great, which is more than what I can say for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan – which has received extremely mediocre reviews thus far.
Personally, I would argue that even at £24.85, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan represents poor value for money – especially when there are so many other games that are worthy of one’s attention and can be had for a lot less. But if you’re a fan of the Turtles, and can’t wait any more for what is ultimately a game that is only going to plummet in price, then maybe Mutants in Manhattan is worth getting now.
After the amazing Bayonetta 2 and the really good Transformer: Devastation, I’m really surprised as to how quickly Platinum Games has fallen from grace – where before it was regarded as being a highly dependable developer whose games were often held in high esteem, to now where some of its games aren’t even worthy of being bargain basement fillers. Hopefully Platinum Games can get back on track with regards to outputting high quality titles on a consistent basis, and whilst the Microsoft published Scalebound looks like its going to disappoint, hope that Nier: Automata lives up to potential.
