Summary: After playing the prequel to this game (a crack in time); I had very high expectations of this game. Unfortunately, I found this game to offer very little in terms of original or new weapons/gadgets/gameplay features. The worlds and storyline was a bit disappointing too given the history of the series. The biggest disappointment, however, was the sheer length of the game which was quite short.
Summary: Ratchet and Clank has always been a favorite franchise of mine, specifically because of the awesome co-op. Which this game for some reason does not have. The title of the game is Ratchet and Clank, but you can only be Ratchet, it makes no sense. The dynamics of course as always are great but without my girlfriend or buddy being able to play along with me it's just not the same.
Short, Lack of Variety, Small Worlds and Terrible Story.

Summary: Being a fan of the series since the original I have found this title extremely short and unfitting for a home console let alone an end of a trilogy. Negatives: -The weapons are mostly reused with the return of Mr. Zurkon, Essentially the Buzz Blades/ Chopper/ Disc Blade Gun/ Etc., Grenade Glove, Omniblaster, Plasma Striker, Typical Shotgun, Typical Rocket Launcher, etc. -The new weapons are very dull with a lack of actual creativity.
Summary: I love the Ratchet & Clank series, so I was understandably anxious when this one was released. Especially so because I skipped the last two (All 4 One was really just for multiplayer even though you could technically play it alone, and I learned that Full Frontal Assault was so bad that I never bothered with it). Here we have the R&C standards you expect - crazy weapons, lots of humor, and a lot of just plain fun.
Summary: Lives up to the Ratchet and Clank name has some flaws as of, it being an all around shorter game than the others, some of the new gimmicks added to the game can get quite boring, and the controls are a little weird but they can be easy to get used to. Overall it's been a fun game to play and i would recommend it to any fan of the series.
Summary: It's Ratchet and Clank, so it's fun. But... The whole thing feels like the Insomniac team needed a cash-flow boost for the end of the year and pimped an aging franchise to do it. It leaves the series on an ambiguous note and is ultimately not very satisfying. The gravity mechanism is great, but the puzzles aren't hard. You get the Ryno via collecting hidden cards around the levels (a la gold bolts) and a collect quest on one of the planets.
