Ratchet & Clank: Q Force Review | A Distracted Insomniac? [Dealspwn]

Dealspwn writes: The game is admittedly only a cheap download, but so was Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty, which featured ‘proper’ stages with a miniature single-player campaign. The graphics are admittedly excellent as per usual and the few cutscenes on offer never fail to be amusing (thank you, Captain Quark), but this feels like a Ratchet & Clank game from a studio clearly looking more towards their next project, Fuse. I hope Insomniac do come back and make another full-on Ratchet & Clank game. Failing that, maybe Sony should consider seeing who else would like to work on the series. (PS Vita, PS3, Ratchet & Clank Q-Force, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault) 6/10

I got the game day 1 thinking the Vita version would be available to download... kinda pissed it wasn't. I just played a bit on the PS3 because I mainly bought it to play on Vita and I don't want to wear the game out before the Vita version gets released. It okay... nothing impressive, but it should be a great Ratchet game on the go since it's designed with closed in levels and strategy type of gameplay.

Same situtation here.

Worth the buy since it was only 17€ for both versions, but the game is nowhere near what a ratchet game should be.

Wake up Insomniac! Go back to ACIT style gameplay!

ACIT-style again for sure. I still enjoyed All 4 One a lot more than this one though.

This is a mini-game like Quest For Booty only with tower defense/multi-player.

Insomniac are really losing their touch. Next gen they should release less games and concentrate on making them better. I know they can produce quality but i think this is ten games now for ps3 if you include fuse. That is quite a lot...

Agreed 100%. All of their attention is on FUSE, which frankly looks like utter garbage. If you placed it on the shelf next to the other 600 shooters on the market, there is nothing that screams buy me.

I would argue that the first video they showed should have been more in line with what they are going to deliver, at least it looked unique. Now it is just noise.

I wish them well, but branching out to go multiplatform is the beginning of the end of this studio (unless they are bought out by Sony).

I'm not even sure I'm gonna buy this one.. was so disappointed in the 'All4one' and the ones before that wasn't that exiting... somehow i am still returning to the Ratchet & Clank Gladiator for PS2??? that was the best one in the series for me ever..
