“Devastation becomes a surprising honorific, not to the Hasbro marketing that has kept this franchise alive, but to those often unspoken animators who gave it all life. And they’re overdue for credit. Playing in something designed to mimic their work is a grand tribute.
How easy it would be to rely on the branding alone! Childhood sentimentality always sells. Devastation grasps why the sentimentality exists at all.”
