1UP reviews Ratchet & Clank PS3: 8.5/10

Ratchet & Clank games are always easy to like, and this one is no exception. Friendly and funny, with the wacky weaponry and varied gameplay that are the hallmarks of the series, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction hits all the Ratchet notes with a well-balanced mix of platforming and gunplay. The weapons are as wacky as ever, the gameplay is as varied as in any game in the series, and the level design is as clever as you'd expect.

The story is too old to be commented.

ratchet is easily a 9/10 in my book.

However ratchet is averaging a 9+ at gamerankings and metacritic

www.metacritic.com

MK_Red3381d ago

Agreed. Even EGM gave it 9/10.
1UP is just acting like GameSpot and giving 8.5s. They gave 10/10 to weaker games.

Ratchet beeen getting a lot of 9s every where..1up being a little kids that love the 360..i bet you they goin to give uncharted high 9.. but still they know ratchet is a great game..so they can suck it

beavis4play3381d ago

yea, if sony had put ratchet in an x360 box-1UP would have given it a 9.5

lonestarmt3381d ago (Edited 3381d ago )

totally this guy is a little jaded. I mean it doesn't look that much better than the ps2 games, no moments where i said wow this is next gen?? give me a break. How can soooo many other reviewers, fans, and gamers ( even 360 owners which i give kiddos and tons of respect to) say holy crap its the closet to pixar a game can be, and this guy is yawn. Forget 1up.

Funky Town_TX3381d ago

.5 and all this complaining. Lets see how you guys respond. Last Nov the 360 had a mega hit GOW. 3 million copies. Lets see if the if Sony gamers will answer. Get out and buy games stop web surfing.

Watkins3381d ago

@ 1.6
Srry, God of War was never released for x360, but keep on wishing!

u got owned3381d ago

@ watkins

He was refering to Gears of War (GOW)

sonarus3381d ago

why are you guys bothered this is one guys opinion. Play ratchet and clank and decide for yourself. This guy might be a 360 loving hoe or he might be lookin at whatever he can to bring the game down thats his problem i dnt really take 1up reviews seriously anyway.

gamesR4fun3381d ago

yep these guys are going to lose even more gamers with their obviously bias scoring. Besides ever listen to one of their podcast 1up reviewers are the most immature Ive ever heard.

#1 biased Site gave R&C 8.5 that means it is REALLY GOOD!

MK_Red3381d ago

With 1UP giving 8.5, I don't think GameSpot will give it any higher than 8.
Still, R&C will be a top notch game and a 9/10 game at the very least.

CRIMS0N_W0LF3381d ago (Edited 3381d ago )

Reviewer 1: Hey mates lets review R&C
Reviewer 2: Haha you mean bash it! lets start! No Multiplayer!
Reviewer 1 Jogs down no MP

*They play thru*

Reviewer 1: This is bullsh!t we can't finish it to say its too short! Its so massive!
Reviewer 2: I can't find any defects like framerate issues bad controls or anything.

Boss: I want that review ready in 5 min!

Both: What are we going to do! This game is too good we can't find anything bad about it!
Review 1: Screw it give it 8.5! Microsoft didn't pay us enough to trouble our minds on something impossible.
Review 2: OK we rate it 8.5 and demand a raise from microsoft.

Edit:

WTF I lost a bubbles and some guy her einsults me. Do you know the word Sarcaism means?

shmee3381d ago

gametrailers termed TOD as the best in the series.

The lowest score ever got by a ratchet game at GS was 8+ so there is no way it would get something less than 8.5 from GS. However we all know GS and 1up.

IGN however would give Ratchet a 9+ /10. i am sure about that

jay33381d ago

...Wow...YOu really think these conspiracy theories? Some games suck, some games rule. The case with this game seems to be the latter. With some other games it's the former. Simple as that.

Charlie26883381d ago

@shmee: be sure that if the game is reviewed in GS by ANYONE but Kevin it has VERY strong chances of getting an 8.5 or 9, but if the game is unlucky enough to go to the hands of Kevin be sure it will get a 7.5 or 8 with VERY slim chances of a 8.5 if he woke up in a good mood morning after a night with his girlfriend..if he has one

but in case you wonder, but Charlie is he biased against the PS3? is he a 360 fanboy?, the simple answer is NO he is a n00b reviewer, he is GS tournament host that for some crazy reason got the job of reviewing games too recently, GS also changed a few moths ago their scoring policy:

All scores all be by .5 difference no more 8.9 that will become 8.5 they also promised that they will elevate their rating criteria so that only REALLY good game would get the high scores for example game that could have gotten 8.8 or a 9 in the past will be 8-8.5 games

The BIG problems is that THE ONLY one that seems to be following the new rule is Kevin and even maybe taking it to the extreme by underrating every single game he gets his hands on that is why you would will notice his scores are usually 1 or 2 full points below the internet average and are usually the lowest too

retarded but true

gamesR4fun3381d ago

dont see why he'd get one taken away for this 1up sucks large dont believe me listen to one of there podcast...

elijah5103381d ago

is an xbox360 fanboy this game deserves a 9 eventhough I own a 360

razer3381d ago

1up is not a 360 fansite in the slightest.. They are constantly bashing the 360.. Hell, even the latest 1up Yours podcast ends with one of the guys bashing Xbox Live and basically doing a PSA for Sony..

This crap that Sony idiots spew about biased sites and paid reviewers is freakin lame and childish.. I bet many of you people do this sh!t in real life to when you do something stupid and try and blame everything/everyone but yourself..

I think this has been the most accurate review yet for this game.

"This crap that Sony idiots spew about biased sites and paid reviewers is freakin lame and childish.. I bet many of you people do this sh!t in real life to when you do something stupid and try and blame everything/everyone but yourself.."

No, the people that say this crap do not have a life, they spend their days here crying about Halo 3 and hyping up crap games like Lair.

fenderputty3381d ago

While I agree that the wild theories are funny, I still think it even more funny that the lowest review yet is the one you feel most accurate. You let your bias shine through as much as any other reviewer or poster. Other then this, everything else has been 9+.

ReBurn3381d ago

After playing the demo I don't care what the reviews say. I'm getting this game.

IdontTakeSides3381d ago

This game definetly deserves a 9+...but I don't really care much about whatever the guys over at 1UP say about games...im not even sure if they even play gaames they reviews seems they just pop it in for 30 min then review it.....lets see how they score Uncharted..!!!
