Mick Fraser: "Remember when games were fun? Insomniac do. Although, to be fair, that’s mainly because they’ve always clung onto that element during the development of their games – sometimes to the detriment of the overall quality. Ratchet & Clank is a notoriously hit and miss franchise; almost every entry is undoubtedly fun, but very few have reached the heady heights of, say, A Crack in Time in terms of quality. Most recent Insomniac offering Fuse underperformed, despite a decent campaign and a slant towards bonkers four-player co-op. But they’ve been waiting to find their niche, that gap in the market that only they could fill, an opportunity to not only rise back to the top, but to become relevant again."
