Gamespot: Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time Review

Clank has dutifully served as Ratchet's robotic sidekick for years, accompanying the gun-crazy lombax across the universe but mostly staying in the background while Ratchet had the fun. In Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Clank steps out from the shadow of his furry friend, finding his own obstacles to overcome that not only provide an awesome change of pace from the Rachet's explosive action sequences, but are also the highlights of this great adventure. The time-manipulation puzzles are as thought provoking as anything that has appeared in the series and go a long way toward making the seventh iteration in this long-running series feel fresh. That's not to say the standard gun-shooting action has grown stale, though. The beautiful worlds Ratchet visits are huge and diverse, seamlessly blending shooting with platforming to provide some of the most exhilarating and downright fun moments that have ever appeared in this series. Even though it treads familiar ground, A Crack in Time is the best in the franchise so far on the PlayStation 3, and a raucously fun and engaging adventure to boot.

Did they mention too much variety as a flaw again? :P

solidjun53277d ago

it's not the same guy (thank god). His reasoning was just ludicrous.
Anyway, I bought the game today. It's really for my brother's birthday. So i won't be playing it until he beats it. can't wait. ^_^

euchreprof3277d ago

he says it's the best Ratchet & Clank ever.

RememberThe3573277d ago

He said it was the best Ratchet game on the PS3, not ever.

Score is good, but it doesn't really matter, I'll be getting the game no matter what.

It looks like a great game, but I'm ready for a new IP. Ratchet and Clank had a good run, and Insomniac should move on before they screw up the franchise.

Regardless of the score, I got it today. For christmas though. So can't play it till then...

But, I have Demon's Souls to keep me company till then. I love buy two get one free deals.

OH! I hope I don't see any spoilers for it from now until when I play it. God I hope I don't...

It is without a doubt and easily the best Ratchet & Clank game ever, in my opinion. It's simply awesome. Gorgeous graphics and animation, brimming with personality, an excellent story, perfect acting, hilarious, fun, vibrant, loaded with variety. And don't underestimate the music! This game has a killer soundtrack.

let me guess: Too much variety?

euchreprof3277d ago

This game deserves a 9 minimum. A 9.5 would be a more honest review.
