GameSpot: Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time Wins Best Writing & Dialogue of 2009

In many cases, an already-fun video game can go from good to great with the help of smart writing and storytelling. In fact, at their very best, storytelling and dialogue are so ingrained in the game experience that you may be too busy enjoying yourself to pat the writers on the back. Also, while many games have excellent dialogue and narration, it can sometimes be hard to point out exactly where good writing and dialogue end and where the great performances of skilled voice actors begin.

Great. Good thing GS weren't overwhelmed by too much variety this time around.

Totally deserved! I've been saying this every since some lame reviewers started handing out 7's to this game because it wasn't different enough from its predecessors. If you were a fan of the series at all prior to this game, then you would NOT agree that it's too much like its predecessors. The story alone makes it a must for any fan of the series. The humor is pitch-perfect, the story is just downright epic, and the ending is amazing. And if you've never played many of the games in the series before (or any of them), then that "too much of the same thing" argument obviously is meaningless to you, too. This is a very under-rated game. It totally deserved to be 90+ at metacritic. I give it a 10 out of 10. The graphics are astonishing, the frame-rate holds steady at a perfect 60 fps, the story is epic, the characters are hilarious, the level designs and puzzles and weapons and everything else are just downright fun and awesome. I love this game. I already played through it 3 times and got the platinum trophy. Glad to see someone give it an award!

yeah, one thing the R&C games do is really punch you with the funny!

i do think that it had great writing, but uncharted 2 should have won in my opinion.

at least you can't accuse me of being a fanboy since they are both ps3 exclusives

U2 has the best writing in gaming sofar.

Ratchet and Clank games have always been some of the funniest and well written games in all of gaming. R & C: ACIT is no different. Congrats to Sony. Well deserved win.
