Ratchet & Clank (2016) review
Meh
by M0ck1ngb1rd

Do not remember why, but I just dropped it.
Gameplay here is pretty ok, but without interesting scenario and nothing special at all.
To tell the truth, it was rather boring then fun.

Ratchet and Clank is a game based on a movie nobody watched based on a game almost everyone played until that streak ended with current-gen consoles saying, "I hate the past because it is stinky."

For a reboot, it's tame compared to other entries. For a standalone game for newcomers like myself, it's not that bad. The game itself is really, really fun and the gameplay is super engaging while also being VERY hard. Though some of the music is eh, the characters are ehh, and the writing is ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I also don't like how this game apparently thinks I've never played a video game before and has the balls to remind me of every little thing like underwater, jetpacks, jumping, rails, money, trees, air, oxygen, food, shelter, Earth, the universe, the galaxy, death itself, just knock it off already. Let's not forget to mention that everyone in this is legally required to spout corny one-liners that make them look like tween gamer shirts at Walmart every fifth of a second.

It's definitely got its poopy moments, but I still recommend it if you want more action platformer shooters. I'd say it's worth $20, but I got it for free on PS Plus, so go your own way, I guess.

My childhood. Ratchet & Clank is funny, quirky and platforming at its best. This remake of the original title is well worth the time and money. 8.5/10
Probably if I had played original games on PS2 or if  I were 7 years old I would love this title. Unfortunately I got bored after 7 hours and barely made it to the end, but I still enjoyed it!

First – I never played the original games (booing is heard in a room), so I won’t compare the original and the reboot, but I really liked the new one. Ratchet & Clank ticked all the right boxes for me: it looks great, has a cool protagonist and a lovely sidekick, a lot of nice characters, tons of cool guns, from your typical blaster to a “shotgun” that transforms all the enemies into pixels, as well as a fireworks launcher (with some epic music playing while firing), many different gadgets that unlock throughout the story and allowing you to re-visit previous places to collect all the things metroidvania-style and a nice set of locations to see and bosses to kill.

The story is nothing special, but it does its job to keep you going and allows for some character development. The most important part – the game keeps you hooked, there is no time when I didn’t know what to do or was bored. As soon as story was slowing down a bit – game gave me a new mechanic to play with (jetpack levels are the best) or a new location to visit. So, if you want to spend your weekends playing a very polished, colorful game that will let you destroy tons of bad guys with all the imaginable guns in the universe, then I recommend you checking it out.
