  Short but sweet

A brilliant swan song for Ratchet and Clank, the only drawback being the game is much shorter than others in the series, otherwiswe I would have given it 5 stars. Gameplay is excellent, with fun new weapons and ways of getting around. Highly recommended but be prepared for it all to end way too soon.

  Huge Disappointment

Having loved "Tools of Destruction" and "A Crack in Time" I was really excited to see the 3rd and final in the Future Series.

However, I am hugely disappointed. It feels as though the developers have created this game for the sole purpose of having to finish the series. There's nothing new and the storyline is a watery good-conquers-evil plot. The worst part is it only lasts 8 hours... and that includes collecting all the hidden items, such as gold bolts and Rhino holo-plans.

It's also missing a lot of small details that made the other 2 titles so good:
- No space travel and visiting different sectors/ planets / moons (simply blast-off to the next level)
- Smuggler turns up for all of 2 minutes
- Quark plays no part in the story, except for a quick cameo
- Battle arena is over very quickly
- Barely any weapons or armour (all weapons are re-hashes of old ones)
- The ship no longer speaks and isn't a character in the story
- NO PIRATES!!!
- ...and much more

Overall this game will be a massive disappointment to die-hard fans of the series. It truly feels like Insomnia have created a game, with a shrug of the shoulders and a "meh."

Worth a quick blast, but wait until it's in the bargain bucket!
