The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy Review | Gamekult

Replaying these three PS2 episodes of Ratchet & Clank would be like, for a soccer fan, to replay FIFA 2004/05/06 in HD. (PS3) 5/10

I strongly agree. And the worst thing is this is one of the big videogames websites in France. They didn't even reviewed All 4 One.

Is this review just the three paragraphs or are there more pages? Cause that was a bad review.

The review is just the three paragraphs. No more. To compare, the Max Payne 3 review was 5 times longer.

Gamekult.. anyone familiar with this?

Besides, I really hate the reviews when it comes to HD collection, they should be reviewed based on how WELL the game is ported. This is the whole point of the re-mastering, it's not meant to be re-reviewed.

Exactly... It's still the same game, after all.

Gamekult is one of the biggest gaming professional website in France (behind JeuxVideo.com and JeuxVideo.fr).
They are known to give hard and impartial reviews, yet they are pretty trustworthy (which doesn't mean they are always right or wrong).

Their review scale:
- 5/10: Average.
- 6/10: Good.
- 7/10: Great.
- 8/10 Awesome.
- 9/10: Nearly perfect.

Gamekult is a bit the equivalent of UK's Edge (minus people's hatred toward Edge).
However, this particular review seems to anger many Gamekult users, if we read the comments.

I've never played any of the original games.

Does that make it a 10/10?

What's funny is that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, got a higher mark on that site which is recycled garbage.

Why would it be like playing Fifa 04/05/06 again? Are they saying that each R&C is a yearly rehash of the previous version?

257 words qualifies as a review?

---------

"So finally there is little reason to waste time to rebuild the older versions, less beautiful and less comprehensive than the last episodes PS3, for example, because everything has seriously aged. "

so, because an HD remake doesnt look as good as the current gen games, that makes it worthless? this comes across as someone who is simply closed to the idea of HD remakes

also, I thought it was pretty well established (by both reviewers and fans of the franchise) that the last gen ratchet and clank games are better than the current generation ones, in terms of gameplay.

---------

"Yes nostalgia can function according to the series and their evolution, but if the first play Mario can still give pleasure today as the latest album are different,"

the translator clearly had a hard time with this sentence, but i can gather that it is probably something incredibly "nintendo fanboyish." those tend to be sites that bash Jak and Daxter and R&C games, and have no respect for them.

---------

the R&C games on the collection have the following metascores, respectively: 88, 90, 91. combine them, remaster them in HD and 3D..... and that somehow equals a 5/10? are you high? unless that collection is glitchy and broken beyond repair, there is no justification for that score. the reviewer seems to either hate HD collections or hate the ratchet and clank franchise.

Lol that might just be the worst comparison I have ever read.
Afterlife  +   1358d ago
The review is too short. It reads more like a Metacritic user review, which are mostly lame.
C0MPUT3R  +   1358d ago
Games Journalism at its finest.
.
Comparing a classic platforming franchise To throw away sports games.
.
That is a weak ass review.
.
And what is with the reviewer bringing Mario into it and basically insinuating if these were Mario titles it would get a good score.
Pintheshadows  +   1358d ago
So, he really just gave three of the best action platformers ever released a three paragraph review. Three games, three huge, vibrant and varied games and he writes three paragraphs. I don't care if this is the French equivalent of Edge, that's appalling.

Pathetic! Person who wrote this is a deluded moron.
