Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time (PS3)

 

Clank has dutifully served as Ratchet's robotic sidekick for years, accompanying the gun-crazy lombax across the universe but mostly staying in the background while Ratchet had the fun. In Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Clank steps out from...

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...

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...

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.

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.

Time matters: can you save it before the universe is destroyed? (PS3)

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

 

TheRatchet & Clank series is consistently excellent, yet oddly underexposed. It hasn't quite attained the level of ridiculous public acclaim that other, similar games have; while Sony is fully aware that Ratchet is a flagship series, it doesn't seem to...

A Crack in Time is essentially safe. It's a Ratchet & Clank game, which means it has high production values, a good sense of humor, a high number of explosions, accessible gameplay, and much of the same stuff you're used to from the games that have...
