Bargain Bin Ratchet and Clank Future Review Summary
Scoring 89% over 70 critic reviews
and 88% from over 422 user reviews on Metacritic
Released Oct 23, 2007 primarily a shooter-platformer. The player controls Ratchet most of the time, with some sections using Clank, as they explore various worlds to complete missions, using Ratchet's wrench and other exotic weapons gained during the course of the game.
Many reviewers hailed the game as a reason to purchase a Ps3, though a persistent complaint levelled at the title was it's lack of muliplayer, a feature of it's ps2 predessor.
Despite initial reportsof a HDD glitch and HD pixelation issues on some manufacturer's sets, the game recieved favourable reviews and is certainly worthy of a good rumage through your preowned shelfs.
Selling nearly 75,000 units during the month of release, by March 2008 the game had sold over 1 million units.
Quote of the bunch:
.....pure nerdvana from start to finish Gamestyle
As perfect as a game can be, state of the art in every respect
The same PS2 title as ever, tired mechanics the epitome of platforming excellence
The controls feel great. The graphics look great. The score sounds great
The game is extremely easy, the story's premise is thin, the ending disappointing
A stellar title and will do much to propel the series to future titles
About as close to true perfection as games are gonna get right now.
Gives Sony something it desperately needs, a solid reason to actually own a PS3.
Sets the bar high for not only the series but for all PS3 games to come
