This Is Why We Play Videogames - Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Review | Zyro-EG

Jason says, "I can’t deny there is quite a thin line between nostalgia and modernization. Sometimes, you ruin things when you try to modernize it, and other times, you ruin things when you fail to modernize it. But a lot like the 2016 reboot, Rift Apart manages to tip-toe the line to make sure you still feel like you’re playing something classic, but new and fun at the same time. The fact that this is also then wrapped up in one of the most pristine presentations ever gives just about anyone with retinas and hands a reason to get a PS5. The one flaw this game has then, is that it’s pretty much a single playthrough that can easily be done in a weekend, even for completionists, and that continues to make me scratch my head at Sony’s $10 exclusive “tax”. Still, this is it: this is why we play videogames; this is the epitome of gaming enjoyment."

The story is too old to be commented.

Absolutely phenomenal game got my Plat done the other day. Insomniac or on a totally different level from other developers.

The gameplay is sublime. The combat and traversal feels like butter.

Then there's those graphics

Please bring Resistance back.

This. I think that there's definitely an appetite for a new Resistance. Imagine how good it would look using Insomniac's tech!

As for R&C, the game is pure fun and the load times are ridiculously fast. The only complaint I have is that it's so short. I'm not saying I want a 100+ hour game, but it feels like it needs to be double the length. But at the end of the day I'm having a lot of fun with it, and that's what counts the most. I'm trying to stretch it out as much as possible. Currently I'm roughly half way through, at Blizar Prime.

My only complain is that I wish it would be longer, I know it is not short in R&C standard, just can't get enough of it.

Awesome game, can't stop playing until I am at the credit screen.

Started challenge mode with left and right flipped to keep it fresh, but somehow the audio is not flipped, so I can't position the enemies just by audio, which makes it very hard to maintain the 20x multipliers, might need to disable the flip until I get enough bolts to upgrade all weapons.

It's honestly damn near perfect. It's also unputdownable!
