The Undisputed king of platformers!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Ratchet & Clank (Video Game)
This game rocks!The enemies are interesting and varied,the graphics are amzing and the storyline is very good.Basically, there's this species that can't live on their planet any more (it's too polluted) so their leader- a freak named Supreme Executive Chairman Drek -has decided to build a new world and destroy half the galaxy doing it.And it only gets weirder from there.Where do you come in?Buy the game and see.The gameplay and level design is amazing-there's a lot of places which you think are just background but which are actually vital for completing the mission (or getting gold bolts or new gadgets).Also, almost everything is destructible.On one level, there are these grinning metal aliens on the wall (they're not enemies) and if you hit them with the wrench they look wounded and defeated.Also,if you blast an enemy wearing a helmet you can hear it shatter (the same noise as breaking a light, which you can do).The best part of the game, though, is the weapons and gadgets.You can roast sand-sharks with the pyrocitor, blow up robots with the bomb glove, swing back and forth like spiderman with the swingshot and pick locks with the trespasser-and that's just one level!There's 36(!) wepons and gadgets in total.The rocket launchers-the devastator and R.Y.N.O (the best weapon on the game)-are very useful.They're highly damaging, have auto lock-on and the R.Y.N.O fires 6 missiles per shot.The most useful weapon, though, is the blaster.It has rapid fire,targets enemies,can kill anything with enough shots and the ammo is cheap (1 bolt per extra shot) and plentiful (25 ammo every box).
The best parts of the game, though, are the extras.Shooting down ships with gun turrets, chasing one down in a fighter, using the grind boots and Giant Clank.The hover boarding, however, sucks!It is stupidly hard and whenever you crash you get overtaken, even if you lapped the person behind and it should take them a year to catch you!It's a big letdown.
You use a lot of ships in the game (why did I put that in?).In short-BUY THE GAME!
