The dynamic duo, Ratchet and Clank, have returned with an adventure bigger than any of their previous ones. Ironically, its a reboot that reimagines their original adventure of saving multiple worlds from the evil Chairman Drek. The story is altered in numerous ways and many new story points have been added. This reimagined adventure is jam-packed with fun story telling, gorgeous graphics, and stellar gameplay allowing players to control both heroes.
After the events of the game, the leader of the Galactic Rangers, Captain Qwark has been imprisoned for his crimes. After a huge fan of Captain Qwark arrives at the prison, the captain offers to tell the story from his perspective. He tells the story of their first adventure in which Ratchet and Clank team up to defeat Chairman Drek before he can destroy all the planets in their Galaxy.
The game plays much like the prior entries in the series in which the player uses a grand assortment of firearms and the omni-wrench for melee combat. The combat is fast and fun, keeping the player on their toes and allowing them to genrously flex the powers of their weapons. Some sections of the game allow the player to take control of Clank in a few puzzle-based sequences. The graphics for the game are absolutely beautiful and flaunt some of the power of the PlayStation 4.
Some players, such as one of Cape’s tech guys: Marcus Walker, prefers the original game to the new reboot. While he enjoyed the original more, he liked the new graphics and faster game mechanics of the new title.
While this is considered a “kids game”, it is easily fun for all ages with a more mature sense of humor and gripping gun-play based combat. Returning fan or not, this game is an incredibly fun adventure. Ratchet and Clank gets an 8.5/10
