Review > Fall of Cybertron Shockwave (Transformers Generations, Hasbro)

One reason I’ve never gotten back into Transformers is because I felt like there was just too much product out there to get on board.

Anyway, the game looks fun, and as long as it doesn’t try to goad me into spending real money on upgrades and so forth (I’m looking at you, Jaws Revenge), I suspect it […]
