I can't wait until this game comes out on the Xbox 360!

Rachet & Clank + Xbox 360 = gaming heaven

Oh man, I just can not wait until this game comes out on the Xbox 360.

I am speechless as well, I just dont see what all the hubbub is about with this kiddy game, I hate kiddy games, why is this game any better than Viva pin, and Kameo? I just cannot get into kiddy games like these, they are all way too easy and the silly characters are intolerable for me. WTF even is rachet? I cant play Sh*t like that, I want some real games on my PS3, 360 has Bioshock and PS3 gets this arcade crap. This game is nothing for Sony to be proud of; not when their competition has Mass Effect, Halo, Bioshock, and Sony has this juvenile joke.

HarryEtTubMan4866d ago

Haha like this is the only game on the Playstation 3. The truth is Playstation 3 get s MUCH better variety of games and this is AMAZING,even if you think it's "kiddie". O yea. and this "kiddie"
franchise is the 4th best selling platforming franchise ever , and as a franchise has sold 14 million copies will Halo as a franchise has sold 15 million. This kiddie game is BIG.

lol..why...haven't gotten accustomed to scores like this now for this game..G4...haha

pwnsause4866d ago

WOW even Adam sessler loves the game, so there is a problem with gamespot!

Ri0tSquad4866d ago

But is there a difficulty setting?

IdontTakeSides4866d ago

I should think so after you beat the game....IDK I haven't beaten it yet...but i must add as you advance through the game the difficulty levels increases not by much but enemies give more with all the R&C games the first few levels are easy then difficulty slowly increase..!!

KidMakeshift4866d ago

This is not a 5 out of 5, 10 out of 10 game. Neither is Halo 3. Both series don't bring anything new and previous installments (Up Your Arsenal, Halo 1) were better. Everyone is entitled their own opinion, but I think people over rate these franchises.

ngg123454866d ago

At least for me. Played all of them too.

KidMakeshift4866d ago

The upgrades only make the weapons stronger, not to mention, each weapons level increases the more you use it.

Rybnik4866d ago

Yes. When you beat the game challenge mode is unlocked. However, like in previous Rachet games, you keep all the weapons you had before, so unless you intentionally only use weapons in the order you got originally, it won't be nearly that much more difficult.

Great review by the way. Gotta say I saw this coming. More or less all the game sites are accepting that this is a fantastic game, and a must have for PS3 owners. (I loved it! Can't wait for Uncharted).

IdontTakeSides4866d ago


Have you played the game yet if you haven't then plz don't compare it to the previous installemts..this game is not overrated plz to look up that word..ohh wait you already mentioned the meaning "HALO 3"..

good implementation of the six-axis isn't new..
the weapon upgrade system
what about the Devices....

KidMakeshift4866d ago

Yes, I played and beat it a few days ago. It took 12 hours for me to beat. The sixaxis works fine (it's rarely used at all) but the tornado weapon was somewhat awkward to use. Plus, there's a vendor practically around every corner so it's rare to run out on devices. The disco ball device is cool because every character, even bosses, will dance in their own way. But that's really the only awesome device. There's alot of weapons that a majority of people won't use like the leech bomb. I really think Going Commando and especially Up Your Arsenal are better games. Tools of destruction is more like a happy version of Deadlocked.

only one that i can really think of and thats mgs4 from the previous ones.

KidMakeshift4866d ago

I don't like that every 5 mins or so I have to bring up the item menu and equip/unequip weapon, item, camoflage, etc.. It's not horrible by any means, but it does get tiresome.
