Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time is one of the best action-platformers to date. It takes everything it did right in its past installments, and refines almost every kink in its formula. It doesn't make any groundbreaking changes, yet it does what it does with great finesse. Above all else, this game is fun in its purest form. Your first playthrough will take around 12 hours to complete (varying, depending on how many collectables you seek out), and is a joy from start to finish. Then afterwards, you can jump right back in for round two in "challenge mode", where the difficulty is bumped up, yet you get to keep all of your upgrades. If you're aching for your next dose of high quality action-platforming, you'll find just what you're looking for here.
