TGS: Rachet & Clank: FFA is not a return to form | Destructoid

Destructoid: "When I read that Ratchet & Clank would gain a traditional third-person entry later this year, I pooped the bed. I literally pooped the bed and you should never poop in the bed. But, after playing the game, I deeply regret this filthy, depraved act of excitement. FFA is just not very good in its current state."

Gotta admit, I do worry for this one.

I wish it could be a full fledged entry instead of this. It's more a cash cow then the traditional R&C entry. It seems more like a quick cash and grab living off of the name.

The game needs to evolve instead of devolve. It seems as if they are just getting what they can for now, until next gen gets here. This is a disappointment, as is "FUSE", at least at this time, this dev house is one of my favorites, and at this time I am just not excited for what they are doing. And before this and Fuse I have always been really excited for IG new games...

while i agree quest for booty was pretty good and like other RAC games only shorter. I think Insomniac will do a full game on ps4. I wouldn't be surprised if development has already started

RAC games sell well and this franchise has a big following

They said they wanted to do something with MP, I just wish they'd give us a PSN based UYA styled competitive MP. That was great

WTF is Insomniac even thinking these days?

MaxXAttaxX2215d ago

They're too focused on OverSt-- FUSE now to make full-fledged R&C games :/

I am in the beta and I didn't like it at all. The controls are different, and it doesn't feel like Ratchet & Clank for some reason. It has something that makes it different, but can't point it out. It feels like empty or small, IDK. I played 2 days for 3 or 4 hours each, and decided to abandon it. (Sorry for the people that wanted in and I just wasted it)

I used to love insomniac, bt now i just worry about WTF theyre doing as of late

-Gespenst-2215d ago

I didn't really think it would be tbh.

I think Insomniac might be losing the plot a bit, as much as it pains me to say it.

InTheLab2215d ago

I.....actually thought they were starting a new trilogy...shame on me for hoping Insomniac would avoid 3 failures in a row...

calis2215d ago (Edited 2215d ago )

3 failures?

The last 3 they did was, include FFA is:

Outernauts (Facebook game if you want to count it)
R&C: All 4 One
Resistance 3.

Arguably All 4 One is the failure.
R3 certainly isn't, though I feel they finished it and were done with it.

However I will say that I do wish they would do a full game. All 4 One, FFA, they just seem to be mini-R&C games and nothing like the Future trilogy or the original 3.

Huh, honestly I'm surprised to see anything critical of a game pre-release. Especially in the format of, well, a brief blog post. Maybe they think no one will notice it?

Here's a link to Destructoid's preview of the game:

Notice how glowingly positive they're being. They really try to sell the game with that article, don't they.

Anyone care to place a bet on how long this small, critical comment will be up?
