Is It Any Good?
While fighting games can be hit and miss on mobile devices, especially from this franchise, this brawler has a simplicity and depth that's fun for fans of both. In Transformers: Forged to Fight, those robots in disguise have to duke it out on an alien planet where, oddly, some Autobots are jerks and some Decepticons are nice. But what makes this fun is that it pairs simple fight controls with a deep bench of iconic characters, all of whom can be upgraded. Aside from a story-driven single-player mode, this also lets you fight your friends or random strangers online, as well as team up with other players to compete in special events. But it's the solid controls, the core of any good fighting game, that makes this work as well as it does. Because while they may be simple to learn, there's a depth to the moves that makes them effective when you learn how to chain them together. Which is why Transformers: Forged to Fight will appeal to fans of fighting games as well as the casual gamer or robot fan.
