OverviewOverview

Transformers: Battlegrounds is a strategy game that's accessible for a range of abilities. It offers a robot-themed XCOM style game for younger players.

You control the Autobots in the main campaign; Bumblebee, Windblade, Grimlock and Optimus Prime. Each robot has unique skills that can be used to your advantage. Windblade, for example, can knock enemies back and send them hurtling into the nearest solid object for heavy damage.

Each turn you get a certain number of Action Points that allow you to move and attack. As you progress you fill up the Ultimate meter, which lets you trigger an even bigger attack. You need to change your approach for different missions that range from objective capturing, rescues or all out battles. You need to use the varying environments to your advantage too. Take cover in desert sandstorms, avoid Cyberton's Energon storms, and battle foes in city streets.

For younger players and fans of the series this is a lot of fun without getting overly confusing. With this, the game unlocks steadily more missions and abilities to keep them engaged. It's also a good scale for youngsters.
