onAXIS gives their review/impressions of the Ratchet & Clank PS3 demo.
i say first.
it's lame, as i thought it would be
The E3 demo version(which is what they are reviewing) got an 8.9.....
The real one isn't out till October 4th.
go get a ps3 first
stop playing demo at gamestop
my lame what?
oh, that's right, you can't spell.
Just as you said that, another xbox360 bit the dust.
and you say it's lame?
Yeah that scores you a spot on my ignore list.
There are already enough fanboys and trolls on here we don't need new ones. At least I don't need to see you.
I got the Demo and its dope!!! so your wrong...
A fantastic game with great graphics and sound. Running at a smooth 60 frames per second. It's games like this that seperates us from our competitors.
22.6 GIGs Of Space which means it would be impossible to have this title on any other console without major limitations.
The game is great, but Harrison is tripping.
It is not running at 60fps and it has slowdown and HORRIFIC screen tearing all the way through the demo. However, if Insomniac get this to run smooth and eliminate the ugly v-sync issues, I'll but it for sure.
Hm, I have these vsync troubles, too. Kinda strange. Its still the resistance engine, which had none of those effects (its the next gen resistance engine, well, yes). But its also pretty aged already. I do not think they let that pass, though.
I am not sure if a demo should get a rating. I mean its old, a lot of things might have been reworked already.
I was blown away by the demo. If you take the time (or watch someone else play) to take a closer look at the backgrounds, that game is amazing. Its so much going on in the environment, incredible, IMO.
The "CG" scenes are not "CG", but in game, or at least I think so. It matches the in game environment.
Every time I hear the groovietron, it cracks me up. That is an awesome idea. That said, I'd give the sound a higher rating. That and if you have a surround system the train in your back kicks you out of your sofa.
The ripping and frame issues will be fixed in the Downloadable Demo.
Is this the demo of E3? Pretty sure Insomaniac can pull it off if it is...
The demo has some of the worst tearing ever! I was really upset, even for a demo.
LOL people disagreeing with the game tearing. Quit being in denial. The tearing is so obvious, even when you turn around. There's no excuse to not implement V-Sync. I saw tearing this bad, in first gen 360 games! Tearing should be a thing of the past.
hey, dipsh!t, it's something called a demo.
gotta fix the bugs first
mind played with no problems
I am a fan of the series and this looks like a promising draft, yes it needs its tweaks and I will be glad whent he final comes out, because its not going to stray from what makes the game great, humor, creative weapons, and just plain platform shooter fun.
Guys and girls this is off topic but you all need to see this its really important.
The text that plays during the podcast is pretty fanboyish but other than that it is a bit of interesting news. Read about it a couple of days ago.
i grabbed it at gamestop and had lots of fun, my girlfriend even loves it, she loves making the enemies dance with the groovitron, and then turning them into penguins, and watching them dance, ahhah really funny stuff here, plus the game doesnt let up, so much going on, and alot stuff to do, railing, shooting, running on falling platforms, lots of fun
But how do they give it 9.4 and 9.3 for graphics and gameplay and still only 8.9 overall. Just cos they give a lower score for sound doesn't mean it should lower the overall so much unless it actually detracts from the game. It shouldn't be an average. Sometimes I think people just rate PS3 games by too high a benchmark. Look at whats in front of you and decide if its good or not. Can you see where I'm going with this? If some stupid reviewer gives this game under a 9 because he says, "Well I'm still waiting for Toy Story Graphics" I'm going to just spew.
Cant wait to kill me some dancing Peguins. Little tuxedoed bastards with their adorable faces. Take that happy feet.
I think give the demo a rating like a game is retarded. Sorry. It just a demo. Its gives you an impression and maybe an outlook what you can expect from the final product. It might be used in focus groups to extract some player feedback. But that's it. That's why I really wouldn't want to give an opinion in form of a rating. For me personally, it was pretty awesome, except the vsync troubles, which I am pretty sure they'll get under control (looks like its simply off at this point).
When I first bought my ps2 I bought ratchet and clank: going commando
and that was one of the best single player experiences I've had.
after that I bought the whole series (when they came out of course) and this will just be another one on my list
Insomniac said their would be some issues with the demo since it is an early build of the game.Why do't you bot's stop posting negative new's on every sony game and get a god dang life!
Or Im I playing another demo of the game??
Just tell me fanatics. This demo has framerate problems and a horiible tearing. In not the only one seing it. In other thread I commented on this and all the fanatics didnt waste time to attack. The truth is this site is just ruled by these A$$HOLES fanatics of each console. PLAYSTATION FANATICS...dont be as blinded as the 360 FANATICS. They are the worst, dont emulate them. If I tell the truth I am considered an XBOT or SONYDROID by the side I "atacked". Come on guys dont act as child. Ive been playing games for more than 20 years. I am an artist and consider myself a GAMER.
BTW... I just finished Heavenly Sword...ITS AMAZING a work of art. NEITHER NINJA GAIDEN SIGMA OR NG2 can compare with this graphycally. TOO BAD ITS TOO SHORT.
The demo probably does not have the texture streaming implemented.
Other than that this is going to be an awesome game, like Warhawk...Will there be any online in ratchet and clank?
The screen tearing in this game is horrific. The 4 retards who disagreed with me probably don't even have this demo because if they did, why would they disagree with my post about tearing and slowdown?
I am not some anti Sony xbot, I in fact love Sony hardware/software and don't even have a 360 or a wii.
Ratchet and Clank demo is pretty amazing, graphically and in terms of playability, but the slowdown and tearing is too much.
Just a fact retards.
I see 2 retards have reached an unprecedented level of dumbness and disagreed with truth again. This site is becoming very sad.
You could show some of the teenagers on here an apple, and they would hit disagree and tell you it was an orange.
