GameOn writes: "I've enjoyed a long history with the Ratchet & Clank series, since its earliest incarnation from 2002. The carefully judged balance between blowing things up, platforming, blowing more stuff up, puzzles and a healthy quantity of huge explosions, lasers and bolts has helped create one of the best series available on Sony's consoles. However, the Ratchet & Clank: Future series for the PS3 has left me feeling a tad sceptical. In hindsight, I was a little harsh on Tools of Destruction but Quest for the Booty was underwhelming. With A Crack in Time I was anxious to see if the series could provide some more innovation akin to the original trilogy."
