Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando Review Rewind

A mix of improvements from the first elevate the mechanics, but changes to the core gameplay harm the overall experience.

I know I'm going to be in the overwhelming minority here, but I have seriously mixed feelings about Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando. On one hand, the game drastically improved upon some of my gameplay complaints from the original title, on the other, it went ahead and created a whole new set of problems. Lenghty fetch quests and far too many required mini-games made the game feel drawn out and the overwhelming combat drastically overshadowed the platforming. This hurt an important core element of the game leaving it unbalanced, unfocused, and devoid of an element of character it once had before.

Ratchet & Clank Review Rewind

After nearly a decade, Ratchet & Clank still holds up well today.

The last Ratchet & Clank game I played was A Crack in Time nearly two years ago, and man, that game was awesome. With the release of All 4 One steadily approaching, I figured it might be fun to return to the series' roots; after all, it has been over four years since my first playthrough of the original.

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One Hands On Preview

Can a co-op based Ratchet and Clank game deliver? We take a spin on the online beta to find out.

I’ve been enjoying the Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One online beta since it was released to the public earlier this week. I have to admit that when I heard that that the next Ratchet and Clank game, a favorite series of mine, was going to be a co-op focused affair I was skeptical. It’s easy to see how the game mechanics would fit into a frantic multiplayer experience, but will that be enough to support an entire game?

Resistance: Fall of Man Review Rewind

The end of mankind has never been so fun.

When I originally learned that Insomniac Games, the minds behind Spyro the Dragon and the Ratchet and Clank series were planning a new IP for the launch of the PlayStation 3, I was pretty excited. When they revealed that it was going to be a gritty first person shooter my excitement waned a bit as skepticism started to take over. You see, it was the beginning of the FPS wave that would soon flood the market. It made sense that Sony was getting in on the action with the Killzone series, but I was surprised that the guys at Insomniac were heading down a path that had been travelled down so many times that it was more like a super highway. I wanted something more original than what looked like was coming. Sony only added pressure by marketing the game as their “killer app” – that must-have title that was supposed to push systems out the door and into the living rooms of nerds like myself.

Ratchet's latest adventure looks to be fun FOUR everybody!

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One brings co-op multiplayer to the beloved Sony franchise for the first time. Many fans were wary of how well it would work, since the series has been firmly rooted in single player action platforming. I can safely assure everyone that the game works extremely well and is a lot of fun, especially with multiple players.
