PS3's standout title so far,
This review is from: Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction (PS3) (Video Game)
I had this on pre-order and received it on the release date. Having played it through fully twice now I can honestly say that it's one of the most fun titles I've played on PS2 or PS3 in a long time.
The graphics and sound do the immense power of the PS3 justice and if you've played any R&C games on the PS2 you'll immediately appreciate the enormous step up in quality. The draw distance is phenomenal and the skies are busy with animals and craft. Ballistics and explosions are brilliantly realised and the water effects are second to none. There is no doubting that the developers have unlocked a colour palate untouched so far on the PS3. This is the prettiest game you will play this year.
As always there are a plethora of new weapons to unlock, and the classical R&C sense of humour remains. It's obvious that Insomnia have just been dying to unleash some of these on us for years but haven't had the processor power to do it. When you see a room full of baddies dancing to DISCO and the flashing lights of the groovetron for the first time it's tempting to just watch agog at how much is going on on screen and how much attention to detail there is.
It's not perfect; I've found it a little easy in places and the difficulty is lower than some of the previous games. There are occasional graphical glitches with bits of smashed boxes seeming to hang in mid air and the occasional monster getting stuck behind bits of landscape. You'd have to be mad to let this sort of thing detract from the sheer immense amount of fun there is to be had though. There's tons to do, and if you're the sort who likes to get 100% then you'll be playing it through at least 3 times before you get all the skill points and unlock everything in the game.
Buy this game, you'll not regret it.
