"It's been a long time coming, but thanks to the power of the PlayStation 3, the team at Insomniac Games has been able to realize a longtime goal for its 'Ratchet & Clank' series." More within...
a TOY STORY can now be played in real time.
ratchet has given PS3 the exact boost that it desperately needed
And it's fun as hell... It seriously reminds me of Mario on N64, I haven't had that kind of fun on a game since then. That and it also reminds me of good old Goldeneye.
It only looks Pixar-like if a person takes off their Xbot goggles. Somebody needs to tell Gamespot that.
BTW, this comment isn't directed towards #1, its more of a general statement.
I think I'll run out and buy a ps3 just for this game!!!!
Why click the PS3 tab if you don't have anything positive or productive to say?
Your loss, go play some Halo or something.
Youre loss pal, welcome to my ignore list troll...
go play with your xbox loser. Your comment has no point other than to show how much a fanboy you are.
Ha that doesn't mean I won't be getting a PS3 soon. Your lose cool guy. Enjoy Halo at half the speed and graphic quality.
I just like seeing how many disagrees you got. Need I say more.
What a interesting turn of event but this game seem to be getting out there through word of mouth, and everybody is praising it. everybody seem to be impresed by the pixar graphic. i must say insomiac is very very talented. And i will be purchasing this game.
It wasn't that long ago that feature articles kept vaunting the R&C franchise as a cookie-cutter sequel production line...
their titles remained fresh, fun, and worthwhile. It's good to see the tradition continue into new hardware, and a new generation.
This game is not pixar graphics.. I've seen the demo.. What a load of crap (the comparison and not the game).
Don't get your little pvssies all dried out over this Sony girls..
that you meant the graphics vs toy story and not the game itself. Correct?
Edit: I agree then. It's pixar-like, and it's trying hard, but it's not toy story graphics.
The graphics comparison. The game still looks fantastic but that comparison to Pixar graphics just annoys me... The game is scoring some incredible reviews as well, I think the PS3 hands down has a hit on their hands.
ppfftt...Team Fortress 2 is the only game that really looks like a Pixar movie. I mean just look at it!
lol look at how everyone thinks im serious about this comment.
Team Fortress 2 looks pretty bad to me. A pixar movie is full of warmth. Team Fortress 2 lacks that.
Did you actually play the demo on a good HDTV or did you just watch a HD version of it on gametrailers? Obviously its impossible to do what the recent Pixar films have been doing with pre-rendered graphics in real-time, but this is really really close to their Earlier works. The draw distance and the large environment all at 60 fps is just amazing.
I love TF2 but it does not look better, I mean it uses a completely different since it uses a variant of the cell shading technique. You might want to pick a game that doesn't use that looks this vibrant and good.
And the graphics are good enough to rival a pixar movie IMO. No doubt.
It's the closest thing to Pixar that any game has gotten to this point....
And no Xbox game has even come close to this one.
The game looks crisp, colorful and the gameplay is smooth and ongoing.
It's exitig to keep your character alive throughout the chaos thats happening in the city.
the beast has awoken.i agree no pixar graphics but the best ive seen on any platformer for any console.ps3 looks to taking off.go sony keep um coming and ill keep supporting like ive been since 1995
"One of the basic premises of the Xbox is to put the power in the hands of the artist," Blackley said, which is why Xbox developers "are achieving a level of visual detail you really get in 'Toy Story.'"
Remember last gen when every Xbot tried to claim it was Sony who made that idiotic claim?
Xbots just got OWNED.
ATLRoAcH he would rather keep buying the console that breaks down on him alot! what a dork.
I don't get it.
First, all the PS3 games with low ratings suck.
One gets highly rated. It still sucks.
Uncharted is gonna be a 9+ game, it's still gonna suck because it's on PS3.
You haters need to go evaluate your lives. I'm a PS3 man, and I think Bioshock, Halo 3, and Mass Effect are/going to be excellent.
If you think Ratchet sucks, and you never played a Ratchet game, just stop playing video games because you're missing out. There's a difference in saying something is not your taste, and something sucks.
As a PS3 fan, I can give props to ME, Bioshock and Halo. This site is chalk full of people who don't care about anything but whether its Sony of Microsoft. I know I'm slightly biased towards the PS3 but, I'm not going into 360 threads and slamming them. Nor do I think other PS3 fans should do so. This stuff goes both ways ... people need to start giving props where props are due. The PS3 is getting to a reasonable price point. It has games too. It's not like the 360 had loads of AAA titles in it's first year. Next year is only going to be better for Sony as well. Meh ... I'm rambling ... game on.
don't let the haters get to you bro...the good guys on this site, from both sides, know what's up...Ratchet is a fantastic game and Uncharted will be too...and the PS3 has got GAME...some posters on N4G, the worst case ones, are a big funky can of spoiled SPAM...eat on that haters!...and move along, nothing to see here...lol...Dr. Pirate, you just make sure to game on bro...
this game is so close to toy story you can taste it.
OK, on one hand, I think this is a very good game, with beautiful graphics. No question. It has superb art direction, some of the best I've ever seen (perhaps save Super Mario Galaxy or BioShock) and it looks quite good.
But in all honesty, it's not like a Pixar movie. It will be a very long time before any game APPROACHES Pixar quality. That's not to say that the PS3 isn't powerful, because it absolutely is. But Pixar movies are rendered using incredibly fast computers that can each put out about 30 frames of the entire movie (roughly a second) every single day.
I'm sure some day we'll all look at how fast our computers are (like modern calculators v. old GINORMOUS PCs) and laugh, but today is not that day.
most-RELELVANT post has just arrived.
Upon its entrance the author shall receive... BUBBLES!
Very well-written, by the way. I just love the way it ends...
Any good games that are on PS3 have to suck if it's not on the 360. And they always start flooding any PS3 related articles. Sad and pathetic
This game is no were near pixar standard graphics,wtf ive played the demo and to be honest i thought the graphics were average to say the least,kameo looks better than this game,i just dont know what half of you sony fanboys are smoking,but i know grahics when i see it and this is not it......
average? now i know your just a fanboy
kameo looks better? congradulations to the first person to make my ignore list.
lol..."kameo looks better" omg...go back to play kameo then i bet it's a lot of fun!!!
all these douchebags and theres no toilet in sight big enough to flush all of them down through. this game cant be don on 360, THATS WHERE ALL THE HATE STEMS FROM
Ok the game looks very good; I played it on my 56" JVC, HD-ILA, 1080P TV. PSN ID is Mendivil. The character himself is what looks the best, (like in almost all first party ps3 games), but the environment doesn't look too good up close. I would not consider this to rival a pixar movie; but it looks good for what it is. Not Amazing!
has crafted an engine that takes the best of the PS3 and uses it to great potential. The General consensus here is that this game brings that true warmth and fun and humor and ell and look and fidelity of a Pixar/dreamworks film in the palm of your hand to play all in real-time. while many can be subjective and claim no. the industry seems to think otherwise, and it has held up that lofty claim as the game was released. on that i'll say that Insomniac is the first that brings this generation to a new level of graphic fidelity, we have looked on the competition's and see that there isn't a game that looks this Good graphically... but i'll say that Mario galaxy will probably just as fun or alittle better., but not graphically.
Pixar movies = Fun, belly achingly humorous, and very beautiful. the exact embodiment of this PS3 exclusive. Insomniac deserves all the credit with this. i'll be playing this tomorrow
this game looks good no doubt but pixar quality!! thats to much of a stretch for me!! I've played the demo a few times, but to put it up there with those kind of graphic comparisons is crazy!! im running 60 in sxrd sony 1080p hdtv an i dont see those graphics. good non the less though!!
A triple-A game other than Uncharted?? I thought everyone confirmed that Uncharted would be the only AAA game, LOL. Anyway, pre-ordered, I pick it up tomorrow, can't wait
as a gamer I'm very happy that TOOLS OF DESTRUCTION has come upon us. As a 360 owner I'm sad. I'm sad that I don't have nothing now or in the forseeable future like this to game with. But...wait. I'm a GAMER so that means I can go and get a ps3 and still play this wonderful game. lol Thank god I'm no fan boy. Good job SONY and I hope that 360 owners can just give credit where credit is due. I don't understand why some of you guys act like SONY can't make a great game for their system. Happy Gaming!!!
(pun intended) will be impressed by this game visually.
It may not be quite as good as a Pixar movie, but considering that every single scene from those movies are framed, polished and treated as traditional film, what's being accomplished now with gaming in general is incredible, and this is the best looking game with a cartoon style out there so far.
LOL!!!!!! 7.5/10 IN GAMESPOT:
I TOLD YA PSTARDS, N00BS.
Who care about biased site sponsored by M$.
You are pathetic jester
Eloquence must be your gift!
Does anybody even find that funny or smart at all??? There is like 10, 9 and above ratings and this idiot keeps talking about the 1 reviewsby xbox fans... lol get a life and find a better name for sony fanboys, which i am not considering i have all 3 consoles...
this game is awesome
Great game this Autumn by far
played the demo
I play the demo alone 2 times each day
it's that enjoyable
I still might get an Xbox anyways
come on folks if this isn't AAA I don't know what is
R&C looks like it'd be an awesome Open-world RPG. Insomniac needs to do it!!
to "almighty" lol almighty nobjockey the critic gave it 9.4
Team Fortress 2? Viva Pinata? You fail sir.
It's good to see sony rely on old franchises in order to get AAA games, shame they can't do it with their new IP's :(
/not bashing, calm teh fvck down.
Sor of like Nintendo? Or was that a low bar blow? GTFO~
Looks great plays nice but i'm not 12 years old so i wont be buying this. Its maybe a rental when i'm bored. I just want kz2 and mgs4, everything else is suxors.
http://blog.myspace.com/ind... <Real R&C review, folks.
LMAO. 10 Lucas Bartons?
JUST KEEP YOUR POWER GLOVES OFF HER, ALRIGHT?
...if you own a PS3, an HDTV, you owe it to yourself to get this game. The environments are stunning and the gameplay is just pure fun. It is a little easy, but I have read that you unlock a higher difficulty level after beating the game. I played the first 2 levels last night and I can't wait to play more. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!
Ratchet & Clank is about as close to a Pixar movie as you can get when it comes to games
movies and games are 2 totally different genres
get it right.
This is still impressive and the funny thing is it's not yet complete it may look better when it's actually released so I wouldn't be surprised if it came pretty close to looking like a Pixar movie.
Not to mention it's a PS3 game and only possible off of the PS3 so that must tell you a lot that Sony has a lot to work with compared to other consoles when making games.
You can trust me when I say that paying $500 for a console can get you a lot of cool things.
gears still looks better lol
Pixar my Ass, 7.5/10 game.
