these games keep getting shorter and more contrived
9 February 2011
Summary: when i played this i really wanted to love it, i love all ratchet and clank games but i just do not feel that this one is heading in the right direction all of them have been short but this one is so very short i beat it the first day i had it the weapons were not that good either a lot of the weapons had mew wanting something more, i wish they would use some of the really good old ones but basically everything in this game follows the same pattern.
Summary: I am a casual gamer, having played and enjoyed all the previous Ratchet games for the PS2. "Tools of Destruction" and "Crack in Time" were the 1st games I bought for the PS3 we got for Christmas this year. I was not disappointed with "Tools of Destruction", great game. I can't say the same about "Crack in Time". The main problem I had was the Clank episodes. They were frustrating, tedious and boring.
Summary: I've played every previous Ratchet & Clank game to 100% completion (except the PSP games). This is my favorite video game series of all time other than the Zelda series. A Crack in Time just doesn't measure up to previous R&C games. 1. I beat the game in 11 hours on Medium - that's crazy! Not enough gameplay. I couldn't believe how few planets there were. The moons just don't count as unique gameplay and are more like mini-games. 2.
Summary: As someone who has played every Ratchet & Clank game (except for the PSP games) and loved them all, I was quite disappointed by this latest game. -Is it bad? Definitely not! The voice crew, plot, and dialogue are all, as usual, top notch. -Is it not fun to play? Again, definitely not! The game is short, but is thoroughly enjoyable throughout. -Is it ugly? Nope, absolutely beautiful in 1080P. -Are the controls difficult? As usual, they're amazing.
