5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, PS3 owners should play this., 19 Mar. 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction (PS3) (Video Game)
Tools Of Destruction is the latest offering of a series started out on PS2, with Ratchet, a brash Lombax and Clank, a wise robot. Whilst it may appear 'kiddy', like Legend Of Zelda it has appeal for all ages. It begins in the series signiture setting of Metropolis where it is under attack by "Killer Robotic Commandos" and things set off from there.

The controls are smooth and easy to get used to, with a hotkey selection system for weapons, gadgets and combat devices. Combat devices can give you an edge in battle, most noteworthy is the Groovitron that forces enemies to dance whilst you blow them to bits (Every enemy has a different dance, and is worth watching!). Other combat devices exist, but onto the weapons, the portfolio is diverse and it'll take a while to fully upgrade them; some include a Tornado Launcher which is guided by the PS3 motion controls and an electric whip, fun for the whole family!

The platforming gradually lowered in each installment on PS2, but thankfully it's back in style and fun. It's easy to see what you have to do and how to time things so it is not an exercise in frustration. The puzzles are good too and not too difficult, they use the motion controls here too to provide interesting gameplay.

The game length itself isn't too big if you want to simply blaze through, it'll take you several full days to do so, but as if many other games by Insomniac the full fun comes in unlocking all the Skill Points and Challenge Mode. They give you various extras such as concept art, extra costumes, and even an extensive developer commentary by member of Insomniac Games, which is interesting. There is even parts of a weapon that are scattred across the levels, collect them all to get the ultimate weapon in the game.

In short this game is great fun, and will last you ages. Great for kids and adults alike, especially if you are gonna start out your PS3 collection. Highly recommended.
