Critical Reception: Sony's/Insomniac's Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

This week's edition of the regular Critical Reception column examines online reaction to Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction a PS3 franchise debut that has been praised as "the best game in the Ratchet & Clank series thus far."

The Insomniac-developed Ratchet & Clank series has earned high marks from the gaming press since its inception in 2002, with the franchise reaching a high point with the 2004 sequel Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, which earned an average review score of 91 out of 100 from all critics surveyed at Metacritic.com. The series' PlayStation 3 debut, Tools of Destruction, seems to be meeting with similar success thus far, and currently averages a Metacritic rating of 89 out of 100.

Though the last console entry in the series may have met with a mixed reception, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, by many accounts, appears to offer much of the same familiar action seen in the acclaimed Up Your Arsenal. Some critics even feel that the title alone warrants a purchase of a PlayStation 3 -- a recommendation that indicates that a purchase should be a safe bet for current PS3 owners.

Only 3 of 17 reviews on Metacritic are below a 90. That hardly constitutes a "Mixed Review". Instead I would call it Widely Acclaimed with a few detractors.

How could they score it 1.2 lower then Kameo. I actually like Kameo and consider it a very good game. But it sure as heck ain't better then R & C. The only other platformer for next gen consoles to compare it to. They seriously need some consistency in their review system.

That because contrary to what XBOTS want to believe, GameSpot and G4, Gametrailers.com are being handed M$ money to keep scores below that of the sites that have not been bribed by M$.

Heavenly Sword is the shiesnit but yet look at the scores.

M$ SUCKS...aahahahahahhhHAHhAhAhA HA

I have orange box on my PC, and I while I think its fun I dont think it should be getting 10's. I think people are giving it 10's just because there are 4 games for the price of one.

Other Ratchet & Clank's did have good offline & online multiplayer modes, so I guess they expected it from this one. Its not needed just would be nice to have.
