Game Informer's Matt Helgeson reviews and scores Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, with Andrew Reiner giving a second opinion.
Concept: Take the tried and true Ratchet & Clank formula and use the PS3's power to shoot the production values through the roof
Graphics: In its own colorful way, this is as impressive as BioShock or Gears of War. The cutscenes really do resemble an animated CG movie
Sound: As always, the hilarious voiceovers are top-notch, as is the rousing score
Playability: The Clank levels are a bit lackluster, but the core platforming and shooting is better than it's ever been
Entertainment: While not doing much in terms of innovation, this is as much pure fun as you'll have this fall playing a video game
Bottom Line: 9.25
Second Opinion: 9.25
