DarkZero: Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time Review

The Ratchet and Clank franchise hasn't been around long, but since 2002 there have been six full length titles, two PSP spin-offs and last year's Quest for Booty. In between this all they've fitted in the excellent Resistance series, so calling developers Insomniac prolific would be a bit of an understatement.

Churning them out annually it's unsurprising that the core gameplay of the titles hasn't really changed much over the years, and as remarkable as that gameplay is, by the time 2007's Tools of Destruction rolled out the series was getting far too formulaic and a little bit dull. That's why A Crack In Time is so refreshing; it's not so much that they've changed everything, but they've gone and proved how much life can be put into what should be an over-worked concept.

Wow, these reviews are so sporadic, great review anyway

thedisagreefairy3683d ago

it has a couple others.

what i dont get, is that all the reviewers who gave tools of destruction great reviews and then give this one lower reviews.

this game improves upon everything that TOD did and added more gameplay elements to the mix.

shouldnt this get better reviews then?

Some reviewers are not affected by early 7s from Edge and Eurogamer, which have not only lowered its aggregated score, but may have been done early to influence reviews to follow.

Its near impossible to get bored of R&C-ACIT because its like 6 or 7 polished games rolled in to one helova platformer/ shooter. The parts where your piloting your ship through space reminds me of Starwing/fox on the snes/N64 and thats always a good th ing..

agreed, bought it today and it is so fun and improves on tools of destruction greatly. I was sad to see it at number 16 on the chart in the store however. Deserves number one!
