5.0 out of 5 stars Attention to detail., 2 July 2003
This review is from: Ratchet & Clank (Video Game)
Stop for a moment in Ratchet and Clank to admire the scenery, and your time will not be wasted. The amount of detail in this game is jaw-dropping. If you look up at the night sky, you will see stars occassionally glinting at you, and minature space rockets or asteroids fly, not randomly, but on craefully plotted coureses behind and in front of the stars, eclipsing them briefly.
This is not only a brilliant game in it's attention to detail, in fact, it is a perfectly rounded game on all fronts.
The gameplay and controls are a perfectly honed masterpiece of gaming magic. This is a game that you can always be better at, and when I can say this it really shows a startling game.
The graphics are unquestionably the best of any game that I have ever played, going as far as to beat the high powered Xbox. I feel proud to own a PS2, and so should you (if you own this game).
The cartoony cutscenes are quite amusing, and the expressions of the characters are detailed minutely, and are brilliantly animated. The personalities of the characters are well expressed, and tiny sub plots never fail to keep your interest throughout the game.
The lifespan and difficulty levels of this game are well balanced, and it is massive for a platformer. The enviroments are sprawling, and the entire game is free-roaming platform goodness. Because they are so large, one might assume lengthy loading times, but this is not at all the case.They only last about 20 seconds, and your spaceship is shown flying from planet to planet.(each "world" or enviroment is a new planet. Each is massive, and different planets allow for a wide variety of levels).
Don't be mistaken though, this game is not solely for kids. The weapons and gadgets slightly widen the age group, but for those older gamers it will still be good fun, if they're not too embarassed to own a copy.Get this in!
