Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction Review (Game Informer)

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

Replay: Moderate

Bottom Line: 9.25
Second Opinion: 9.25

But GameSpot gave it a 7.5, Those sorry dogs. LOL It seems that 1up and GameSpot might be in together...........

People should look for the AVERAGE SCORE/RATING or CONSENSUS out of many, many reviews. One or two less-than-stellar scores from GameSpot or 1UP are not going to make too much difference for the average scores. This game will most likely end up with over 90% at Metacritic and GameRanking -- which are really the only review sources that matter.

What a couple pathetic sites. They thought everyone else was going to do the usual trashing PS3 games get and no one else went along and everyone can see 1Up and GameSpot for the idiotic fanboy hittrolling sites they really are.

Make sure you AdBlock or whatever you use on their sites so you run up their bandwidth and starve them of their ad revenues.

They got it yesterday. I have played it about an hour. If anyone was wondering the first level is the demo level. I have been trying to get to the first boss, but the game is big. it just keeps going. I'm on the 3rd planted in only one hour and no boss yet. thats a good thing. it holds at 60 FPS and lots of stuff going on all around you.

My advice is to play this game slowly and look at all the detail. there is tons of eye candy:)

well lets jst keep the 9's coming am jst gonna ignore gspot and 1up. They may have ruined its chance to be top ps3 game on megacritic. Oblivion has been the top game for ages and that jst angers me. Gspot brought it dwn frm 9.3 to 9.0 with their 7.5 review but we'll let that slide they still havnt added a couple of reviews and they havnt added play magazines 10/10.

as this(PS3) is the first console I have ever owned really(since I don't count my original NES); but this game looks fun as hell. Soon as I bought my PS3 I bought about 12 PS2 games along with 6 PS3 games(have the 60g version). I totally love this thing and can't wait to try this game out.
