Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is a video game in the Transformers video game series. It is a prequel to Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.[1] The gameplay is similar to that of the Cybertron series, a third-person shooter with over 40 characters. The 3DS version is instead a turn-based RPG.[2] The combat itself uses 3D rendered models, whereas the overworld uses 2D sprites.

The game got poor reviews upon launch, including a 4/10 from both IGN[3] and GameSpot[4], and a 5/10 from the Official Xbox Magazine.[5] IGN said that the game was "frustrating" with "dull design" and a "confusing story".[3]
