Insomniac Games has overhauled its proprietary PS3 engine technology to create the most visceral Ratchet & Clank universe yet, overflowing with exotic creatures and flying vehicles.
You know, looking at the graphics of this game sent me laughing. Don’t take that comment wrong – this game reminds me of the animated movies which have topped the charts. The graphics are fantastic, and they are funny, which defends my laughing. I love the graphics!
The latest from Insomniac brings us back that really great game of the adventures of the Lombax. This new version is not only better, which is really unexpectedly a delight, but it is also a little more serious. In this version, Ratchet and Clank are a little bit more grown up. Fortunately, no, they are neither drunks, gamblers nor womanizers…..lol.
The game has a lot of story in it, as in a lot of story for a PS3. The writers tried successfully to answer a lot of questions and made the relationship between Clank and Ratchet more solid, not just a slapstick kind of comedy.
But the comedy is still there, the ridiculousness of Captain Qwark has reached new levels and the one liners can send the player to laughter because of the observations that he makes that is right on the mark. And then the other bad guys in the story just defended their positions are the worst nemesis for the main characters.
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is a new and better version in my opinion and it is also the best PS3 game out there, hands down. For the most observant players, there may be some glitches during the cutscenes but otherwise, everything else is just tops.
The action game play does not disappoint those who like to shoot all the time either. There is enough angst and exhaustive play in the game that is delightfully satisfying. In short, this is a high budget game which all Ratchet fans would appreciate. The details put in by the writers and developers are pretty challenging to the player too. There is this pirate sequence that those familiar with Pirates of the Caribbean franchise would not miss.
As for the subject of originality? Well, give me a game that is all out original – there is none out there. But this one is a standalone and even if it uses the same formula as those used in the previous versions his gives a lot of fun and joy for the player.
Now for the weapon: there are some really great ones here. Take for example the Nano-Swarmers. This is a weapon of beehives that eject angry insect ready to sting the enemies to their destruction. Then there is the Mag-Net Launcher. This one is an electrified cage which can trap the enemies within its electrified web and when used together with the Razor Claws, it becomes a more powerful weapon the longer the player uses it. There are more weapons for the player to discover including the older versions.
If you are new to the Ratchet and Clank games this is one game that should be ranked at the top of your choices. Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is the best title so far in the franchise and it is also the best game on PS3 to date. Yes, it even tops Oblivion and Warhawk, so that is saying quite a lot.
