Fuse Review: Insomniac Abandons its Personality | Gameranx

Fuse fails to live up to the quality of its predecessors from Insomniac.

by Phil Owen

When you boot up an Insomniac game for the first time, what are you looking to get out of it? For me, and for, I would assume, most long-time fans of the developer, the key, first and foremost, is cool, weird weapons. A decent story is also a high priority, but the weapons come first. Inventive tools for dealing death are what elevated the Ratchet & Clank franchise above other similar titles in the PS2 era, and the Resistance series is memorable mostly because of the strange guns that the chimera use.

What has happened to Insomniac? I know they are still capable of making games as good as Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time so why dont they?

Godchild10202508d ago

The day they signed a deal with EA.

zeal0us2508d ago

*with the devil. There I fixed it /jk

Knushwood Butt2508d ago

I dunno. Resistance 3 didn't do it for me.

Thatguy-3102508d ago

Once this game tanks they will go back running to Sony.

MidnytRain2508d ago

Or they'll be too proud/stubborn and churn out another failure. RIP Insomniac...

andron2508d ago

That's what I'm hoping too.

WeAreLegion2508d ago

I hope they learn their lesson with this.

Blank2508d ago

Yup lesson is dont do a deal with EA, dont listen to EA focus groups, dont submit to EA, and also for this game they shouldve listen to public outcry since normally they have good ear for the fans.

Lesson: Don't jump into multiplat development thinking you're guaranteed big money, or you'll end up right in the mobile gutter.

you guys should try Sega's Binary Domain. Not necessarily the same, but it feels right when you play that game solo. Fuse is really multiplayer driven.

Skate-AK2508d ago

BD was way underrated I thought. Good game.

showtimefolks2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

Binary domain and specs ops the line are 2 of the most under rated shooters if this gen

Binary Domain is my top 5 favorite game of this gen, sad so many people passes on it

also insomniac no shame in going back, playstation community will take you back. come back home

Nodoze2508d ago

Welcome back Insomniac campaign starts today!

Ratchet and Clank NEXT GEN (I cannot even imagine)

Resistance 5 (new story arc..maybe play as the bad guys :)

Do it guys and stop making filler games (like all 4 one, and Fuse)

SOULJER2508d ago

DAMN. A 5 out of 10 sad.

Tultras2508d ago

Petty reasons.

This game isn't ratchet and clank or resistance, it's FUSE.

The author seems to not get the idea behind ' change '

MidnytRain2508d ago

YOU don't seem to get the reason behind BAD change...
