Canoe WHAM! Gaming previews Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. The verdict: "Thumbs up."
i expect nothing but great things from this game. i'll be picking it up as soon as i get home for thanksgiving.
my best friend and i had hours of fun just screwing around in up your arsenal, and this one looks to have that feel to it.
i can't wait.
Agreed, this game is going to be worth its weight in gold.
Having played the demo I can say with confidence the game is going to be incredible but the referenced site is just crap and trash. It doesn't matter if I agree with the guy or not, he is a moron and should never be allowed near a computer again. Ever.
"Having played the demo I can say with confidence the game is going to be incredible but the referenced site is just crap and trash. It doesn't matter if I agree with the guy or not, he is a moron and should never be allowed near a computer again. Ever."
It might be hard to accept, but he is what you call a non-Sony fanboy that doesn't love every game he plays and pledges his allegiance to a video game console. Even though he doesn't talk about much of the game, his opinions are valid in that the PS3 has offered no high quality cames up until Ratchet and Clank, which will obviously make the little fanboys here mad, but that's the harsh reality. Hopefully Ratchet and Clank exceeds expectations and your guys' (and my roommate's) investment of $600 won't be for nothing. I'd like to have something fun to play on his PS3 besides Warhawk...
Otherwise, he would not have repeated what he read everywhere about Lair. Anybody who has flown a dragon in Lair will tell you that they are really easy to fly around. It's hard to do a 180 (not impossible, just hard) and the side by side air combat is just plain bad. But somehow, I don't think they would have done the same mistake in R&C
So in Lair, if you just fly around, you can do pretty much anything you want, and it's quite easy and intuitive.
I haven't played the flying part in R&C but if it's as fun as flying a dragon around, I can tell you most Lair players won't sweat it for sure!!! (Unless one of those dirty dragons show up flying on Ratchet's side : )
Now, can you say really say this guy gave a good review??? Let me see, this is a review about R&C? Not that obvious. First half of the article is about the PS3 sales!!! Then you finally have this comment about R&C (remember, he is reviewing it!) "Following in the rich tradition of the franchise, ‘Tools’ is slick, innovative, beautiful and tons of fun." This could be a cut and paste from any review I have seen so far. Did you learn anything? And then, the rest of the article is about the fact that he was sweating because he had to fly using the sixaxis.
If is is so good, please tell me what you learned about this game???? It's a review and out of the whole article, we got a cut and paste typical line from all the other reviews.
You are missing the point Sad Truth. I don't care if he says something positive or negative about a Sony product, a Microsoft product, or a Nintendo product. The guy is a moron and his past actions have revealed him to be so inhumanly stupid, dense, and unobservant that nothing he says can be trusted or given any weight whatsoever.
he did a lousy job on a so called review
This is gonna be a real good game, graphics is just crazy and even though it ain't got online it's a good game to get some hours of fun in. I've played the demo as soon as it came into the Gamestop and still been playing it. I will pick this game up as soon as it's available at the store.
this game is complete madness!i played the demo and it was like watching a cgi movie.i have a 52 sharp 1080p aquos with an HDMI cable and this game plays perfect.it is a good reason to get a PS3.(xbox is dead)
I'm sick of all these "MS might be the new king" articles. THey released one DECENT game (halo) and now everyone loves them. What Idiots! Look at PS3's lineup- there's like 5 AAA titles coming. R&C is definitely one of them. Just wait till those reviews come.
"xbox is dead"
ahahahahahahh!! Funniest quote ever.. If xbox is dead then your POS 3 has been decomposing for a long time! Lets see this wack ass game sell 3 million in a day!! LOL!! I feel sorry for you PS3 fanboys.. First it was Sony putting it up your ass! now its M$! your ass must be sore from all the abuse you guys have been getting!
Back to the subject though.. So many POS 3 fanboys were saying that the 360 was dead when their POS console launch then it wasn't! Then people were saying wait till HS and Lair to come out and then the 360 will be dead and now wait till 2008 is when the PS3 will take over!! You guys should just keep your mouth shout and when it happens then come out! c'mon don't be like Sony's PR department!
why don't you find a better name. Its you xbots that are quivering in fear at the sight of PS3's KILLER lineup. I guess that's why you guys always pollute our threads, right. think again, "jiggy"
"I'm sick of all these "MS might be the new king" articles. THey released one DECENT game (halo) and now everyone loves them. What Idiots! Look at PS3's lineup- there's like 5 AAA titles coming. R&C is definitely one of them. Just wait till those reviews come."

Just a question? How old are you? I realize jiggy is just as immature
Just a question? How old are you? I realize jiggy is just as immature as you and probably has no life but I can't understand why all you little kids throw around words like "xbots." In terms of AAA games, I honestly don't see too many games on the PS3 worth playing that are exclusive aside from MGS4, FFXIII and Killzone 2. Now make sure you guys click "disagree" with me as many times as possible!
what are the PS3 games worth playing that are exclusive aside from MGS4, FFXIII and Killzone 2.
There's lots idiot. At least much more than your stupid xturd. And I don't have to disagree w/ you. I can just hit ignore.
sony fanboys better hope ratchet and clank can sell more then 300K in 4 weeks...but you got too think..with warhawk and resistance, their best games ,and not having hit a million still in north america alone its quite possible it will do worst. but then again saying stuff like this is xboxes nail in the coffin is just plain ignorant. Just grow up kids and stop looking like little chavs.
Xbox will be the new king because they have microsoft and their never ending pockets. Microsoft would throw so much money for exclusives and anything they need Microsoft will be the dominant gaming platform maybe not this generation but Surely the next.
xbox isnt dead silly thing to say but jus like rocky the ps3 is pickin itself off the canvas an startin to throw sum serious punches worryin the trainers in the xbox corner,uncharted is comin like a left hook the xbox can see the punch a mile off but cant get out of its way, this is gonna be a long fite carryin on to 2008 wen ps3 really has the hard hitters to break xbox's jaw but ps3 needs to be careful a jabs comin in the form of mass effect but ps3 will shake that off wen the bell rings and its on its stool getin a quick rest, i belve the killzone/mgs4 1-2 combination will be to much in the way of a knock out! only due to the fact the xbox has thrown all its heavy hiters tirin itself out (RROD) instead of pacin itself microsoft were to desperate for the quick knockout an now it has to try last the next rounds which it never planned for, more updates on this boxin match commin soon from yours truly BLACSHEEP!
lol nice one
That is nice, but remember, PS3, has taken Xbox best blow : Halo 3, and PS3 is still alive and kick'n.
Next week cudnt come any faster. Definately gonna give my PS3 a workout in the following months. R & C, Uncarted, and Haze, gonna be a bz next couple of months. N lets not forget Assasins Creed(ps3) and COD4(360)and Mass Effect. This holiday is gonna OWN >.<
with all this games coming out one after another u think our ps3 will get RROD !? lmao!! heck i was happy with 1 to 2 games interval now its just flowing non stop
Or else, hmm.... there would've been no xbots on this site since day 1
what else could've gave the same or similar impact to xbox/xbox360? no game...almost all they get is halo series......but it is over now, i would say see if the big coming GUNS from Sony in 2008 can have a clean KO to X360 (or show gamers/developers that X360 ain't get anything left), there will be no doubt almost all exclusives will be going back to PS3
Of course this game is going to rule, but this site is a total joke and the "reviewer" is a tool. The sixaxis controls for Warhawk are fantastic, and this guy is a major dip-thong for assuming that alleged not-so-good implementation in one game( Lair)=sixaxis controls will always suck. Finally, I cannot believe he says Ratchet is the ONLY great game for PS3 this fall (Uncharted says hi).
hmm well fo rme there are many more games. for example folklore has one of the best sixaxis controlls ever. its soooo fun to suck theire souls out. u feel powerfull.
This is one of the many games I have wanted this autumn / winter. I have never known a season where I have wanted so many of the games.
I will get this game, if not before Christmas just after. This game will shift systems IMO.
Pre-ordered my copy.
At the moment I have:
- Transformers (Kids like it for some reason)
- Ratotouille (Not getting played much)
- Heavenly Sword (OK game. Wife likes it - the motion control bits)
- Warhawk (Great game - everyone plays it)
- Pirates of the Caribbean (Not getting played at all)
- Motorstorm (Great game - well - I like it)
- R:FOM (Great game)
But.. the kids keep on playing PS2 Spy vs Spy and R&C, Lego Star Wars. Well, Warhawk has become the most played game now, with the 11 yo boy owning us the whole time.
I will bet when R&C lands, it will take over from Warhawk in my house as the most played title. Until MGS4 or KZ2 that is.
Sounds like a cool family you got there. My long time girlfriend doesn't even know who Master Chief is. :(
Warhawk was multiplayer 2.0.
HS was probably the best graphics so far.
Uncharted will probably shatter everything that's come out so far.
R&C will again blow everything.
(note: i haven't even touched 2008)
and all this is happening in matter of 2-3 months. the barrage of amazing games (true next gen) that sony is bringing (and has brought so far) cannot be overtaken by any other console.
we, the gamers, should be thanking Sony for delivering games which we would have never seen or be proud to own.
sadly all that the so called "gamers" will be doing is searching through sites/news to see if any games got below 9 and how it's not AAA. what they don't know is they've missed the best games in the history and all they were busy doing was - "GO GO GA GA!"
Well if Warhawk is multiplayer 2.0, why then it got only 84% average on reviews (metacritics). If it was THAT special, it would have gotten higher rates, right
Heavenly Sword best graphics so far? Nah I would still choose Gears of War
Uncharted 'probably'. Right. Let it release first. I've heard that about Lair also, it looked good before its release and then... But I agree, Uncharted seems to be one of the few possible killer apps on the PS3
Ratchet & Clank, depends if you like a kiddy animal, kiddy colours. If you like a platform game its nice. I'd rather pick up my chainsawgun and get the opponent to splice in two.
Speaking of splicing, Bioshock!
We aren't touching 2008 for a long time, first great games in 2008 release when, may? June? September? November? That's at least 7 to max. 13 months away. I would focus on the next few months if I would have to choose a system to be able to play NOW
It's just a fact:
Wii - 7 games rated average over 80%
PS3 - 30 games rated over 80% average
360 - 70 games rated over 80%
Wii - 3 games rated over 90%
PS3 - 1 game rated over 90% average (Ratchet seems to be up with that)
360 - 10 games rated over 90% average
And yeah there are some fun games lower then 90% or 80%. But they're not all time classics/killer apps. Which shows in PS3 hardware sales.
It's also just a fact that the 360 has been out twice as long. Give it some time...
GO GO GA GA!
with that, i rest my case.
I thought the Xbox 360 was supposed to die when Heavenly Sword and Lair came out???? What happend to that??? Both games are huge flops in total sales.
Anyway, Rachet looks like a cool game. I'm sure my lil cousin would love to play it and bash endless next gen boxes.
No firstknight, 360 was supposed to die when Ps3 was released.
I thought the world would end after Halo 3?
but, but, but i thought PS3 was gonna die when Gailo 3 came out.dangit bobby 620p.
GT5 blows everything out the water.
Yesterday, i played Forza 2 at a friend and this game looks and plays not half as good as the GT5 demo, trust me.
People like TheMART just wanna bash the system. They know that the games for PS3 are better so what else could they do? :-)
360 Loosers - PS3 is the future!
ummm yeah....RnC is comin out on a 1 year old ssystem. a 2 year old system has nothing near the quality nor presentation of this title. thats all there is to it.
I cant wait to blow sh!t up in this game..........grooveatron ftw!
lol at the idiot mart: i have/will own all the games you will ever mention, on my PC. They all run at 1080p...............ms shouldve kept their best sellers exclusive to the console. i and a multitude of others do the same(buy the better version). u can keep your halfass pc/console hybrid.
my PC runs CIRCLES around the 360, so why on earth would I buy games for it. The only reason I have one now is cause my kid likes to play Halo.
360 is a kiddie console. Serious gamers should buy a PS3.
He keeps referencing this website....
Im glad the PS3 has a new game but I'll wait on the next big game cuz this kind of game is just too kiddy for me,I can't beleive some of you are all bragging about this crap like it is something to be proud of, who wants to play this disney movie over a solid adult game.
You have your opinion...
But it's wrong. I doubt you've even ever played R&C.
You are worse than the most fanatic person is over their favourite club or whatever.
I mean, "Lets see this wack ass game sell 3 million in a day!! LOL!! I feel sorry for you PS3 fanboys.. First it was Sony putting it up your ass! now its M$! your ass must be sore from all the abuse you guys have been getting!". Man, how old are you? I'm referring to your brain age btw. So now good games are measured by how much they sell? Ah well, I guess ICO is a crap game, and so is Shadow of the Colossus, Okami, the Prince of Persia series, etc.
What wrong with you man?! Why the fvck would you bash a game because it won't sell as much as a game which had a markteing campaign that costed more than 200M$?! Why?
Oh and to TheSadTruth: 600$ for a PS3? Where did you get that number from? Last I heard the PS3 now costs 400 and 500$...I guess that 'is too pricey' arguement is getting a bit old, isn't it?
And LOL @ this: "I honestly don't see too many games on the PS3 worth playing that are exclusive aside from MGS4, FFXIII and Killzone 2. "
The Getaway 3
Gran Turismo 5
White Knight Chronicles
Those are all coming out in 2008. Please name some games the 360 will have in 2008. I would like to see a more impressive list then the one I just made.
"We aren't touching 2008 for a long time, first great games in 2008 release when, may? June? September? November? That's at least 7 to max. 13 months away. I would focus on the next few months if I would have to choose a system to be able to play NOW"
Hmmm, MGS4 is being released in February/March? And so is LBP. Man, Mart, you hsould inform yourself before your start saying nonsense.
And what is it with comments like "ah, wasn't this game supposed to kill the 360 balh blah blah' crap? Do you really believe in all of the PR crap? Is that the reason why you are so mad at Sony? Because their PR department sucks? LOL...you need to start watching less press conferences and playing more games.
Seriously, you ppl crack me up xD
P.S. Ratchet & Clank is actually the first big Sony franchise coming out on the PS3. So basically the PS3 has been sold just over new IP's. That's quite impressive IMO :)
Clearly Sony has situated itself to be prepared for this holiday season rush by starting it off with a BANG!!! Ladies and Gentlemen I bring to you the magic that is Ratchet & Clank!!!!!!!!!
SONY INNOVATOR ....XBOX360 IMITATOR
the ps2 is just dying ou now.
sony was not ready to release ps3 in 2006. it was slated for 2007...... ps3 hardware build was finalized and q.c. set,( hence the ps3's reliability) but os was not complete when 360 launched.sony just counteracted ms early release.
ps3 was released prematurely, but what its accomplished is far more commendable than 360 but not wii. then again market entry price and a slew of factors tip the scale as far as priciong/capabilities.
ps3wiipc 4 win
just crazy fun...this was AAA as soon as insomniac touched it.
This game is a Day-1 buy for me, cant wait!!!!
U criticized the same site when it gave poor preview of haze now its all goody good. Hypocrites.
u sir are a tool....reviews mean nothing......gameplay means everything....plz try the demo and let your fanboy shields down for a sec
Not sure why a very uncredited (and craptastic might I add) source got reviews for both R&C and Haze to be posted here.....And factor in the part where it fits into being more of a blog then a review, this is garbage.
"At that very moment I was bombarded by flashbacks of my time with “Lair” and began sweating uncontrollably. I still haven’t even touched the SIXAXIS feature in “Warhawk” for fear I might suffer a mental breakdown of some kind. "
This part alone shows this guy will hopefully not be in the review business for long, or blog-review as it should be called. Also if this is the same person who reviews games in the Sun here in Calgary I stand by this guy (and I'm sure along with many other Sun newspaper readers) being a 100% reject at his trade. Just because there is a company (who honestly knows canoe, seriously) behind the review, doesn't mean it's news worthy
Why are we talking about the 360 and ps3 war??? Lets talk about this awesome games
This game is bad a$$.. if you dont own a ps3 you should buy one just to see how special this game is.. Its freaking awesome.. Its not for just kids either. I bet everyone in here liked the 1st sherk and the incredibles... These movies are geared for kids but adults like them more than the kids do.. This is how this game is.. The adults will like this game as much as any kid would..
I've been waiting forever for a game like this. I've played the demo over and over and it is so good. The gameplay is dead-on and the graphics are some of the most fluid that I've seen on a next-gen machine yet. They even found a good, non-gimmicky use for the Sixaxis functionality.
To everyone saying that one platform or the other is dead, you all should just stop it. It takes more than one title to make or break a console and so far the 360's head start means that it has more AAA titles. The PS3 is now starting to come into its own, and if this title is any indication of the future we're going to see more great things from the PS3.
LOL!!! some one also said that this game is a disney game... LOL!!!! what a tool. just dont let me catch any of you hypocrites praising Banjo 3 when it's at least announced next year from rare. because i'm gonna seriously bash the hell out of all you who claimed ratchet was justa kidie game. it's just simple Platform games like this kills the hardcore shotting rubbishj thats plagued and become so popular and mundane in this day and age. it's a welcome breath fresh of air. halo could go to hell and even Haze, as ,much as i like it. i'll be spending much more time with My Ratchet than COD4 and Haze, i wont even touch army of 2 because thats all EA... EWWW!!!! anywho... this game and uncharted will definately be the big guns for this years holiday season for PS3 and Sony. and because it's by there two best developers Insomniac and Naughty Dog, bets believe they will have a marketing ploy that will rake in plenty fgor it on first and second day sales.
KILLZONE2 WILL CRUSH halo in looks and sound and dont u dare jump on the PS3 bandwangon like you guys did with halo.PS3 gamers are true,and spend the money for a good console.you guys just look for the cheap crap.and try to claim its great.
They are horrible reviewers and new. And they bring up the OLD ps3 price? Where the heck as this douche bag been..
Great more terrible reviewers giving there meaningless opinion trying to make money by generating more hits on their site.
