FTG Writes: After years of PS3-only Ratchet & Clank releases, Insomniac Games has gone multi-platform with Fuse. With a storied development cycle of name and art changes, this title is finally street-ready. There’s a lot of potential here, and with Insomniac behind it, there are a lot of expectations too.
First of all, the less stylized art change was needed. The game tells a very “80′s summer blockbuster” story, and that would not have worked with a Team Fortress 2 cartoon look. A squad of agents from the Overstrike agency (where the game’s first title came from) are sent on a simple mission that leads to a massive, earth-threatening conspiracy. Dalton, Jacob, Naya, and Izzie are a tight-knit group, and their camaraderie and banter is a strong point here; it’s reminiscent of Ratchet and Clank exchanging dialogue in their titular game. That being said, some members of the squad receive more narrative attention than others.
