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. This resulted in what I like to call experimental

Pros: Fantastic, fluid controls, Wonderful sense of humor keeps you grinning from ear to ear, The tight action and small levels keep the action roaring forward, Challenge Mode further energizes the campaign
