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.
Excerpt: Ratchet and Clank hit the PSN store in style! This years E3 was my first. Not that I went to the actual event, but it was the first time I watched all of the press conferences, and along with everyone else, was thoroughly disappointed with the lack of great news. There was only one announcement that had me teemed with excitement, this being the unveiling of the new Ratchet and Clank adventure, Quest for Booty.
Pros: Beautiful graphics, Blockbuster qualities, Budget price, The same Ratchet and Clank we all know and love…
Cons: Short at only four hours of gameplay, Hefty download, Lack of weapons…
Conclusion: Warum hat man den FM 13 nicht als Addon zum FM 12 veröffentlicht? Ähnlich, wie man es damals bei FM 07 und seinem Verlängerungs-Addon getan hat? Was hier als Vollpreistitel verkauft wird, ist nämlich im besten Fall eine Erweiterung. Die Änderungen sind so marginal, dass man Besitzern der Vorjahresversion nicht zu einem Kauf raten kann.
