Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time


Everything you already like about Ratchet and Clank, upgraded. There are few things better than an indie game, and I delight in forays into the unexpected, yet here I am...

Clank puzzles ; Open world elements ; Weapons like Mr. Zurkon ; Skill Points

Buggiest Ratchet game ever

Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time


Ratchet and Clank is a game that makes the player feel empowered; it's not so difficult as to make things frustrating, yet it's not so trivial as to make the progress feel boring and achievements frivolous. Along with the fantastic environments,...

Fantastic visuals and environments; A platforming camera that works; A huge adventure that's fun and interesting

Space travel doesn't feel quite right; Easy to plummet to death even on easy

Occasionally, as various points around the world are reached, the game will lurch into a pre-rendered cut-scene. The quality of these is superb, with some fantastic textures to the visuals. These are, of course, intended to move the narrative forward...

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time


The ninth installment in the Ratchet & Clank franchise, A Crack in Time, is the most recent release and brings about the conclusion to the Future arc. This one picks up where Quest for Booty left off and sees Clank in the hands of Doctor Nefarious....

While it doesn't reinvent the wheel, A Crack in Time is definitely the best entry for Ratchet & Clank on the PlayStation 3. It's inventive with its approach to telling its story and Clank really gets his moments to shine. Naysayers who stood against...

Ratchet and Clank Future: Crack In Time


I've always been a big fan of Ratchet & Clank. This Insomniac developed action series managed to combine the very best elements from a standard 3D platformer with the explosive weaponry of a third-person shooter. This lethal combination not only gave...

Even though they are separated for this adventure, Ratchet & Clank are still going to kick your butt. After seven installments, it looks like this duo still has a few tricks left up its sleeve. This game has everything, fast action, time travel, a...

Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time


Everybody's favorite Lombax is back to finish off what began two years ago when Insomniac Games brought their critically acclaimed Ratchet & Clank series to the PS3.? While Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction might have been a huge success, it...

A Crack in Time is easily the best addition to the Ratchet and Clank series so far, doing everything the previous games did right, as well as adding another layer of high quality gameplay features.

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time


If you have not played any Ratchet & Clank game before, do not start here. While Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time is a brilliant game, it is the third game in a trilogy that features a full story arc. Instead, start off by sampling some of the...

Great story and conclusion to the trilogy ; Good balance of gameplay and level design

Seems to go on forever with the gameplay getting repetitive at times

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time delivers the goods for fans. Newcomers need to start elsewhere, but they will soon be in the fold and enjoying this story arc. More of the same – but hey, if that means more chocolate cake, then yes please.

Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time (PS3) Review


The Ratchet and Clank Future trilogy wraps up with a Crack in Time as Insomniac Games delivers quite possibly its best game yet.

If there’s one point I can get across about Ratchet and Clank it’s this: Ratchet and Clank doesn’t do anything revolutionary, but it does a lot of things very well. A Crack in Time has great shooting mechanics, great platforming, and even great...

Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time


Keeping a series fresh whilst still satisfying your core fans always becomes tricky and the furry and robot ones last adventure The Quest for Booty was an average encounter bringing little new to the series (bar plot) and being far too short. It seems...

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time


Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time is the next installment of the favorite action-adventure duo as they tackle their biggest challenge yet. A Crack in Time is the continuation of the Tools of Destruction and Quest for Booty story arch that split...

There is a very specific formula that makes a Ratchet and Clank game a Ratchet and Clank game, and those pieces remain intact as more pieces are added to the overall picture. One of the best features is the hub world you pilot Ratchet's spaceship...

A Crack in Time has a been there, done that feeling. By no means does it mean that the franchise is stale or out of ideas. It means that Ratchet and Clank are getting comfortable after finding the gameplay and storytelling sweet spot. There are...

Insomniac has created another Ratchet and Clank to top the last one. On one hand, if something isn't broken, you shouldn't fix it but you have to wonder how many adventures are left for Ratchet and Clank. There shouldn't be any confusion, this is one...
