Ratchet & Clank: QForce Review | EuroGamer

EuroGamer: "The game always looks good, and it amuses sporadically, but there's no heart - and following on from the similarly scattershot All 4 One, it sets a worrying precedent. Ratchet and Clank are in danger of losing their way. Insomniac needs to regain confidence in its still-popular series and play to its strengths rather than chasing trends for the sake of change." (PS Vita, PS3, Ratchet & Clank Q-Force) 6/10

Since Insomniac has been working on Fuse this makes me think they had a B-team working on the past 2 R&C games given the lack of quality they showed.

a crack in time was great WTH I would like to see more games like a crack in time and A4O was ok

I played the demo and thought it was okay. But, I just want a regular Ratchet and Clank game. All 4 One wasn't that great and now this game isn't looking too good either. I wish they would return to their roots. Tools For Destruction and A Crack in Time were great games. I hope they return to that formula soon.

I agree. It seems that they're instead focusing on quick 'n' easy games that they can crap out with minimal effort to keep them going until Fuse launches, and you can really tell with how half-hearted their output has become.

The original Tools of Destruction that accompanied the launch of the PS3 was a fantastic game, and Crack in Time was also utterly fantastic. If they're not putting out another proper R&C game like those, then they won't be seeing any of my money.

It's a shame as well to be honest, since the Ratchet & Clank games were some of the best 3D platformers around. They've really lost their way this past few years though.

agreed 100%, im a huge fan of the franchise and the last two games were pointless. ratchet is one of the few games that i feel needs zero fundamental changes. just switch up the story weapons and worlds each game and ill happily buy a new game each time.

"agreed 100%, im a huge fan of the franchise"

Yeah it was pretty hard to tell lol.

Anyways, I'd also love for a proper release.
I'd also love it if they remade the first game with more RPG elements. Up Your Arsenal was my favourite, but the story to the first was the best IMO.

Just curious as to what it was about All4one that people are so unhappy about. It wasn't a million miles away from other games in the series. Mr zurkon still makes me laugh when equipped and the cut scenes were excellent. The only game I didn't like from the series was the one that used the move controller

LMAO NO NOT THAT THING oh god no dont remind me of that. It doesnt exist xD

Haha man i forgot about that. Ugh with... that game (i forget the title and im happy about it), all-4-one, and Full Frontal Assault, im really ready for another full-fledged R&C Future-type game.

Still buying FFA when the store updates tonight though >.>

Insomniac is dead. As soon as they announced they were going multi platform the quality if their Sony titles has been lacking.

They better hope that 'Fuse' or whatever it is they are working on goes triple platinum cause they certainly aren't winning any awards with the recent work they are doing for Sony.
Master of Unlocking  +   657d ago
I'm with you here Nodoze, but it's also worth pointing out that, if their Ratchet &Clank games on the PS3, which are still great games, tools of destruction and a crack in time I mean, had sold better, we probably wouldn't be here. These games certainly did not bomb, but I have the feeling they didn't do accordingly to their intrinsic quality, sales-wise.

If we don't support devs when they put out quality games by buying a new copy of their software, we shouldn't complain that these devs decide to move on after that and become multi (or just dramatically reduce the scale of the next entry, case in point: Motorstorm Apocalypse followed by Motorstorm RC. Yep, we got punished)
MoonConquistador  +   655d ago
To be fair, MS RC was only a fiver at first, then as a free vita download. The real downturn in the series occurred when they followed up pacific rift (still probably my favourite racing game this gen) with the bells and whistles of Apocalypse

Let ratchet and clank rest for a while..the quality of the games insomiac is doing is turning bad...
