Excerpt: What Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty lacks in content, it makes up for with graphics. It wouldn't be much of a stretch to call Quest for Booty one of the best looking download games available on a console. The game looks exactly like Tools of Destruction and even manages to top it in a few areas. Some of the texture work is noticeably improved and it manages to run at a constant tick.
Conclusion: It’s not just the visceral gunplay that improves, as the scope of the series stretches and expands in all areas – whether it be from visual integrity to an ever changing arsenal of ingenious weaponry, planets to explore, and just generally more things to see and do, from arena battles, to racing mini-games. It’s testament to Insomniac that the series has continued to hold gamers’ attentions over many years, games and hardware formats later.
Excerpt: Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction came out last Fall, becoming one of the best PS3 titles thus far. Instead of having to wait a whole year for another release, Insomniac has decided to put out their first episodic release in hopes to keep interest high. Quest For Booty serves as a side adventure to bridge the first Ratchet & Clank Future and the next installment, due out for Fall 2009.
Conclusion: Though Quest for Booty, again, isn't a bad game, it's not a good Ratchet game, and in the end that makes for a slightly disappointing and possibly even overpriced offering. With zero replay value and only a few new tricks, this Quest isn't worth taking.
