Expert Review

PSX Extreme
7 January 2014
  • Excerpt: It’s always good to try new things. The familiar and the tried-and-true are bound to get results but every now and then, a talented developer like Insomniac wants to spread its wings.

Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus

High-Def Digest
21 November 2013
  • Summary: Prior to moving towards a more multiplatform approach, Insomniac Games was responsible for two extraordinary franchises for the PlayStation 3: 'Resistance: Fall of Man' and the 'Ratchet & Clank' future series. While the former was a heavy focus on a more mature first-person shooter theme, the latter delivered action platforming at its best.

Fusing action, humor, and planet-hopping in a fun romp.

Common Sense Media
20 November 2013
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus is a third-person action-adventure hybrid that has you fight against robotic and alien enemies using a variety of weapons. One gun is used from a first-person perspective for more realism. Enemies disappear into a small collection of nuts and bolts, which can be picked up by Ratchet and Clank. The game also has some minor sexual innuendo in the dialogue and a reference to alcohol.

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus

GameTrailers
15 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus walks a narrow line as a sequel. It feels like you expect a Ratchet and Clank game to feel with the same exceptional weapons, enticing upgrades, and charming characters. Yet Into the Nexus also constantly surprises with a ton of new ideas that are never overused. It opens with Ratchet and Clank transporting the space witch Vendra Prog to prison.

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus PS3 Review

About.com

  • Conclusion: Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus Image © Sony In the end, I’m clearly conflicted about “Into the Nexus.” On one hand, it’s the best “Ratchet & Clank” game since the “Future” series ended. On the other, it’s the worst game in the “Future” series. If you love those three games as much as you should, you have to play it. If not, well, what’s wrong with you?

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus

Destructoid
13 November 2013
  • Summary: For whatever reason, the Ratchet & Clank series never really grabbed me during the PlayStation 2 era. Maybe I was spending too much time playing Jak and Daxter (or perhaps I was adverse to games with ampersands in their titles) and the million other mascot platformers at the time, but it took me quite a while to get into it. Once I did however, I found out I was missing quite a bit.

Ratchet & Clank: Nexus

IGN
11 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Nexus may not be long, but it’s steeped in Ratchet & Clank special sauce. The characters are offbeat and funny, the story is well-paced, the art direction is distinctive and above all else it’s a blast to play, with always evolving gameplay and an ever-escalating arsenal. A great swansong for the series on PS3.
  • Pros: Weapons and upgrades, Jetpack!, Great sense of humour, Challenge mode
  • Cons: Weak last level

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus Review (PS3)

PlayStation LifeStyle
11 November 2013
  • Summary: The Galaxy is saved courtesy of many blasters.
  • Pros: Good, solid, fun gameplay., Lot of stuff to find and replay value., Cutscene viewer and in-game cheats? More of this in every other game, please.
  • Cons: Some more background info, perhaps using some added movies to the cutscene viewer, would have helped understand events in the game a little better.
