This Game is simply Clanktastic!,
This review is from: Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked & Loaded (PS2) (Video Game)
Well having been a complete addict for the original R&C, I didn't hesitate in rushing to buy the sequel, however I was slightly aprehensive that it wouldn't be as good. 5 minutes into playing R&C2, all my concerns were blown away. This game is simply awesome. To an observer, it may look just like any other platformer, but to the playing gamer it has playability X-Factor by the bucketload!. The controls are smooth and easy to master, the worlds which make up the R&C universe are so well rendered that I found myself stopping mid game just to take in the scenery and the dificulty level seems just right (Both myself and my 6 yr old son were hooked). The thing I truly admire this game for is its clever use of multi-layering to stretch out the length of the game, for example, reaching a point on the planet you are on only to find that you can pass without gadgets that you will collect later in the game.If anyone can tell me how to acquire enough bolts to buy the RYNO gun, I'll be a happy man.In one cut-scene in the game, the mechanic (who was also in the first game) says "it was good to see you, I'll catch up with you in about a year's time", and clank gives a confused look to the camera!, I really hope this is a hint that we can look forward to R&C3, Can't wait!!
