There's story here, but not muchThe game's plot revolves around the Dark Spark, a magical piece of tech that grants the holder the ability to bend the universe's will however they please, including slowing down time. Unfortunately, that holder is Lockdown, who acquires the piece early in the game. Throughout the adventure, you'll not only play as select Autobots, but also a few Decepticons, who have their own little power jaunt when it comes to taking control of the piece. But of course. Where Dark Spark feels best is when it tries to emulate the successful Transformers antics of old. Watching Starscream go crazy in jet mode and blast targets out of the sky is good stuff, and it's always a joy hearing Peter Cullen pump energy into the voice of Optimus Prime (and, for that matter, Frank Welker do his thing, particularly as Soundwave). However, in terms of new content, Dark Spark has very little to offer.
Sure, there's action, but very little variety
