As a ratchet and clank fan from the start, i've been looking forward to this game, and i enjoyed the play through.
But saying that i would be lying to myself if i said i prefer this game to the others, because i don't. i've always liked the franchise as a single player, and i think they have tried to do something different with it for once, which you can't complain about. But i hope they learn from this release that it was and always will be more popular as a single player shooter.
On the other hand I love the idea of the multi player online play through, because it makes the game a lot more fun and enjoyable when you have the ability to play the game with 3 other people.
In conclusion i would say that in the future they should revert back to making it a single player, but develop the online multi player, because it has a lot of potential.
