Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One
Game Over Online
9 November 2015
Excerpt: Having never played any of the Ratchet and Clank series, I really wasn't sure what to expect with the latest installment entitled Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One . All I really knew about the franchise was that the main protagonist has big ears, a robot buddy, and a penchant for over-the-top weaponry.
Excerpt: Sony is one of those companies who will try different things. I was not sold on Ratchet & Clank All 4 One when I was playing the demo. However I have gotten some quality time with this Playstation 3 (PS3) game, and found some fascinating things. There is an offline mode, and I am pleased as punch.
Excerpt: Insomniac have had a very busy 2011. Between the release of the excellent Resistance 3 and the development of their upcoming action game Overstrike, the Californian developers somehow found the time to put together Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, a 4-player co-op platforming game.
Excerpt: I'm not really sure who asked for the Ratchet & Clank series to focus on cooperative play, but it certainly wasn't me. I'm a big fan of the Lombax's previous space adventures, with the series managing to combine some good old-fashioned platforming with excellent projectile and melee combat.
Excerpt: Despite the fact that the Ratchet & Clank series has focused, as its name suggests, on two major character, Ratchet, the small yet agile Lombax, and Clank, his robot buddy, all the games, whether they arrived on the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable or PlayStation 3, have only had a single-player...
Pros: +Great Ratchet & Clank experience, +Good cooperative focus, +Lots of new weapons, gadgets and enemies, +Hilarious dialog
Cons: -Bad camera system, -Unbalanced difficulty curve, -AI can be a bit dumb
Excerpt: The Ratchet & Clank series has been one that has been around for longer than you think. Stretching back to the days of the PlayStation 2, the games’ mixture of guns and humour has built up a steady audience but never quite seems to have hit the big times.
Excerpt: At the end of Mario Kart 7 — well, when you’ve finished all of the grand prix events for the first time, which is hardly the “end” — the credits roll. Fair enough. I liked the game enough that I’ll let them roll for a few names. But not the entire thing.
Conclusion: Although head to head All 4 One can’t compete with its predecessors, what it can do is give gamers a new way to experience the franchise. All 4 One is a tightly packaged experience and one that may not look as good as previous Ratchet & Clank games but it’s still a pure blast to play and for that...
