If you liked the first three Ratchet and Clanks but didn't care for Deadlocked, Tools of Destruction will get your motor revving. The glorious return to form is welcome as the "classic" R&C was sorely missed. Insomniac doesn't let you have time to think about the past games because you start playing in the middle of an invasion.
Grab your weapons because this is going to be a huge mess. Part of what makes Tools of Destruction so awesome is the inventive and ingenious weapons. The overwhelming majority of the weapons are fun to use and all of them have devastating effects. With time and repeated use, you "level-up" your weapons to inflict greater damage on your foes. Not only will your weapons naturally level-up but you can buy upgrades for them at vendors that are scattered throughout the planets you explore. Devices are also new additions in Tools of Destruction. Most of you have seen the Disco ball that makes the enemies dance on screen but there are a few other devices that are just as helpful you discover in your quest. The upgrade system and devices add more layers onto the creative weapons to ensure that battles, boss battle or not, are a thrill a second.
