Summary: SkyDrift is one of those games that just feels like it belongs in an arcade with an extravagant, ground-shaking cabinet. Instead, developer Digital Reality took a more financially responsible route by tossing it up on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
Summary: Everybody's jumping on the co-op bandwagon these days. Be it to fill an imaginary checklist that demands that all games need some sort of multiplayer component or simply to justify the inclusion of an online pass, you can't move without seeing yet another single-player title that has re-tooled its...
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: Ready for another adventure with a certain Lombax and his robotic best friend? Insomniac’s next title in the R&C series: Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One takes on a different perspective, giving gamers a chance to play with up to four other teammates.
Pros: More quirky weapons, Co-op gameplay and teamwork, Catching chubby critters
Cons: Non-engaging story, Lack of character development, Repeated puzzles
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: 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: 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
Actioner with mild violence promotes social, co-op play.

Summary: Parents need to know that Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is an action game suitable for tweens and up with a strong cooperative bent. Play centers on violence, but it is of a humorous, cartoonish variety that shouldn’t prove scary to most kids.
