Summary: Bad port, although it's not the worst I have ever seen. Deadlocked is a great game, the PS3 version on the other hand, has many issues but nothing game-breaking. Some of the issues are announcers bugging out and not talking (aside from scripted events) or they just repeat lines over and over.
Summary: Another strong entry in the Ratchet series. What little Deadlocked offers is great, but the functioning word is little. Gone is the platforming, gone are the minigames, gone are half the weapons and much more. Instead, you face a game built solely of Ratchet 3's 'Assault' minigames and Arenas, with a plot to tie it all together. While it's a fun outing, and a great deal at $9.99 USD, it lacks much of what made the earlier titles so enjoyable.
Summary: I absolutely love the previous three Ratchet & Clanks and have played them more than 5 times each just because they are so much fun. This game on the other hand was one of the worst games I've played. I expected something better than R&C3 but it was incredibly boring, I had no motivation to continue the game, and the weapons upgrade system is overly complicated for a platformer.
Summary: When I finish a game as fast as I finished this one, it must be good. When I finish it twice in the time I did, it must be fantastic. That's not to say that the game is too short (although heavy gamers may find it that way), it's just that fun. It's also really easy to get into. The controls are smooth, and the difficulty options are perfect for a casual gamer like me. The levels are fast paced, and heavy in the fire fights.
Some things are improved, while some things are downgraded.

Summary: Ratchet: Deadlocked is the fourth game in the Ratchet and Clank series on the Playstation 2. This time, the game has changed in multiple ways: Clank no longer is with you on your adventures (instead he just gives you advice with your missions and stuff), There are fewer weapons than before, "Mods" have improved greatly and can be customized and bought (many different types), and in order to unlock new planets, you must earn "Dreadpoints.
If you have played the series so far...Don't buy this

Summary: I enjoyed playing all the previous 3 games in the series. They were terrific. This one has be the most boring one i have played. It is the same, same worlds, enemies, environment. Very boring. Anyway if you have not played the series before you can always buy the older ones cause they are so cheap.
Summary: I loved the other games in this series but this one is terrible. It has some interesting new features, but overall it is lame. The planets are pretty well all the same, the enemies are pretty well all the same too. The battles are all the same and you can blow through the game, level by level with just a few weapons. I pretty well did it all just strafing with a machine gun. Very boring in comparison to the others. Rent it at best.
