Alot of people I know whenever I mention a ratchet and clank game say there put off by the fact they think its a kids game and its a platformer style game. People new to the series do not be put off by the cover (don't judge a book by its cover as they say) as while there is plenty of jumping about here and there, this game is all about the guns and lots of guns (would even make Neo jealous out of the matrix).
While I wouldn't call the shooting in this hardcore action, it is simply just fun overly fun. Think of a gun this game's got it from a pistol, grenades, shotgun, rocket launcher, flamethrower and these are just the normal weapons there some really interesting and abnormal weapons that really keeps the game feeling fresh. The game has a nice mix of platforming and gunning, but also mixes it up with action in your space ship and more.
If you ever loved the animation in a pixar movie get this because you'll feel like your in one. The graphics are definitely some of the best on the PS3 easily matching MGS4 or Uncharted, the environments are large and lush, with excellent lighting. The character animation is superb and is equally matched by some awesome voice acting.
The story is very well written and hilarious in places, Captain Quark will leave your sides aching from laughter. This game really does show video game animation has finally caught up with the animation from a pixar movie, with an equally silly yet lovable plot.
The game however does have faults it is quite easy in places, due to the amount of guns and upgrades you receive. The first play through is about 10 hours although you will want to play through twice as you can play it again at a harder difficulty with all your gear from the previous play through. The game also doesn't have as much content as the previous ratchet games on the PS2 and there isn't any co-op or multiplayer options.
Despite the faults mentioned these are only minor grumbles which is essentially an excellent game. Do not be put off by thinking this game will be too childish, the game is simply FUN, with outstanding visuals. Finally for £15 you are really getting your money's worth.
