So what is the secret of the Lombax? 0

The Ratchet series has been a staple of the PlayStation since the first entry came out on the PS2. And it was with that game that Insomniac cemented its importance as a part of Sony’s success, with it’s strong commitment to the platform; this is especially true in Japan, where the series is very popular, and continues to have strong sales with each new release. In any case, I’m sure this was a highly anticipated game for many PS3 owners; I know it was for me. One of the more shocking revelations...

The second amendment in space. 0

In a virtual plane, there exists three dimensions, referred to in a mathematical equation as X, Y and Z. As of late, young gamers have shown an eagerness to shun the letter Z. Platformers that cling to just X and Y have been enjoying something of a renaissance thanks to handhelds, downloadable remakes of old sidescrollers, and whatever the hell LittleBigPlanet is supposed to be. But on the other hand, the 3D platformer has become hard to find on their console natural habitatat. Sony has jacked J...

Best in the series 0

  Insomniac Games came on the scene in 1996 with a first-person shooter called Disruptor for the original Playstation.   The story played out in corny videos starring live actors, but the game itself played smoothly and looked great for a PS1 game.   Excellent visuals continued to be a hallmark of Insomniac throughout the Playstation era with their much more widely known series starring Spyro, the flying purple dragon. In 2002 Insomniac introduced a new pair of mascots for the Playstation 2 wi...

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction 0

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction Logo Easily one of the best looking games on the PS3.On November 4, 2002 developer Insomniac made a platformer called Ratchet & Clank. Though I never played those, this is my second game in the Ratchet & Clank universe. I played Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters before this, and I liked it. It was a pretty good platformer. My expectations for this game were a little even. I wasn't expecting a lot and I wasn't expecting a bad game. What I ...

Weakest of the Good Ratchet Games 0

It has been quite some time since I found myself absorbed in a Ratchet game. I’ve been burned-out on the series since Deadlocked. Even by the time I first played A Crack in Time, reportedly the best the series has to offer, I just didn’t feel like playing any more Ratchet games. Well, it must be time for me to dive back into this series here in the current generation’s fading years. I finally finished the first of the next-generation Ratchet games. And it gets this old Ratchet fan an approval, b...

R&C: Future of third-person platformers 0

You know how Ratchet and Clank games work by now – start off hitting enemies with a spanner, collecting bolts along the way, work your way up to a range of ridiculously awesome guns and other weapons, level up said weapons, throw in a bunch of boss battles, prettied-up quicktime events, and spend hours in front of a television screen at a time, grunting incoherently at flatmates as you shoot novelty ammunition at mutant goldfish. Well, that’s how it works for me. Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools ...

A quality game, full of explosions, guns and odd cutscenes. 0

Good: The weapons. In no other series will you find as entertaining of weapons as you do in Ratchet. Well..I’m kidding. I’m sure our wonder-kid would love to correct me about some game released in 1985 that did it before. Blowing up things has never been so much fun. Your weapons upgrade with more use, and also can be tricked out to do more damage. Though anyone whose played this franchise I’m sure will be aware of these already. The game is what’s called “old school” though, is 15 years ago rea...

The Same, Great Game 0

              I’ll never be able to understand how the good people at Insomniac Games pull it off. Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction has the same exact gameplay as the four PS2 releases, but it somehow manages to feel fresh and new. The fun I’m having is the same fun I had with the first game in 2002, but I really don’t care, and neither will you.             One of the most important additions this time around is an actual story arc. You’re still trying to save the galaxy, but t...

R&C:FToD (PS3) Review 0

Well, I got the game, expecting mind melting graphics, and world class visuals mixed in with phenomenal game play that reaches beyond ages and brings a fun and enjoyable game with a compelling story. UNFORTUNATELY THIS GAME IS THE OPPOSITE! Let me start off with the first level in the game, a rehashed edition of the demo. This level is nothing like the rest of the game at all. It is the only time you are in this town and the only point to the whole scenario is that you now need a ship. There is ...

Amazing Game! 0

This is by far one of the best games I've played on my PS3 yet. The games story is overall very interesting and thought out, as well as the gameplay is brilliant just as all ratchet and clank games usually are. Although sometimes the sixaxis gameplay has a slight learning curve at first I picked it up really quick and found that it is the best game that I have played yet to implement the tilt controls well and actually add to the game rather then a side note. Overall this game really reminds me ...

Ratchet and Clank Future is a great addition to the series. 0

Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is the 5 game in the Ratchet and Clank Series, not including the PSP ratchet and clank game. Ratchet and Clank Future obviously takes place in the future but that does not mean everything changes due to future being in the title. Actually, Ratchet and Clank Future may be set in the future but It can be really hard tell just by playing the game. The game is very identical to the past games in the series, which isn’t a bad thing. Ratchet and Clank set...

Ratchet & Clank, now in glorious HD! 0

I've been a fan of the R&C games for a couple of years now and when I got my PS3 for christmas a month ago I couldn't wait to play the Future series. So, how is R&C's first next-gen game? well, it's great, for the most part.  Tools of destruction plays the same as any game in the R&C series, you have a ton of weapons and you'll go around shooting bad guys, breaking boxes and jumping platforms. The main draw of the game is still upgrading you're weapons and armor, though the platformi...

Ratchet Future is a jack of all trades and a master of most. 0

Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction REVIEWBy your friendly neighborhood Stapler Hernandez (or Dave)The new gen has now entirely encompassed the lives of every lustful video game enthusiast (the politically correct term, since "nerd" is considered stigmatization..damn liberals). Now that all three consoles are nigh, what I learned about what is truly integral in this generation of gaming is consistency. With the onset of next generation consoles with pure processing muscle, more and mo...

Just what the loyal ordered 0

It is usually not wise to play a sequel without playing the previous games, especially when plot events and characters are carried over. The ending of Halo 3 is just another driving level without Halo. I would not have understood Silent Hill 3 without having first played Silent Hill, not having done so would have rendered me blind and lost. This is what I expected from Ratchet and Clank Future; I have not played any of the previous four titles. All I knew them for were good reviews, good demos a...

Feels like this is what Banjo-Kazooie would be like in 2007. 0

Well to start off I have never played a game in the Ratchet & Clank series.  I bought it because I bought Quest for Booty on sale on PSN and had to get this one cause I wanted to try out a new franchise.  For me this game was pretty good for a newcomer to the series but my main complaint was that it was too easy up until the very end.  The gameplay was awesome though, at first it felt like a Mario game, then I was skating on rails like in Sonic Adventure, and then I was in a plane and it fel...

A must have game for the PS3 0

The Ratchet series sprung on the PS2 as being a great platformer and shooter rolled into one. With all the weapons, gadgets, and action, it's hard not to love the Ratchet series. The series took an odd turn with Deadlocked, which got rid of the platforming and adventure, and just had you competing in arena battles the entire game. Thankfully, this game isn't like that, and it brings back the Ratchet gameplay that we know and love.The story is that Ratchet and Clank receive a call from Captain Qu...

Charm, beauty, and crazy weapons. What's not to love? 0

Light-hearted humor, charming characters, and wacky weapons have made the Ratchet and Clank series a solid fixture of the Playstation platform. The first entry of the series onto the Playstation 3 is a resounding success. It keeps the formula intact while updating the presentation to take advantage of the advanced technology. Add stunning visuals and great physics to an already successful formula, and you have a game that is impossible not to love.Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction g...

Among the best early PS3 exclusives. 0

More than two years old at this point, Tools of Destruction still makes a whallop of a first impression. Luscious environments filled with layers of futuristic awesomeness. Excellent character designs loaded with personality. Addicting gunplay with frequent rewards and upgrades. There’s a whole lot to like in the R&C universe, even if the storyline never reaches higher than a great Saturday morning cartoon.  When ToD originally debuted in fall 2007, it was the first PS3 exclusive that really...

Nothing more and nothing less then a Ratchet game. 0

Ratchet and Clank have hit Sony's Playstation 3 and are ready for a brand new adventure in Ratchet and Clank Future! This first installment in the new series, "Tools of Destruction", is a return to formula after the combat focused Ratchet: Deadlocked. Insomniac attempts to bring back what we all remember from the first three Ratchet and Clank games on PS2 and succeed, but do nothing more.The story is definitely more fleshed out this time around than we are used to. The game starts off with Metro...

Ratchet and Clank Future is one of the most addictive and purely 0

Insomniac, long the premier Sony second party studio, has been making addictive and polished action platformers since Spyro on the PS1. Their releases have consistently pushed the boundaries of Sony's various machines, but have also always stood in the shadow of more revolutionary entries in the genre. With the release of Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Insomniac has again pushed a Sony console to it's limits with lifelike animations, detailed texturing, and massive, interactive ...

Fuzzball and Robot in pretty high def. 0

This has been a long time coming, but I've finally managed to get a review out on the highly anticipated debut of Ratchet and Clank on next gen consoles. Like every Ratchet and Clank game, it's blow up first, and platforming second. Luckily, the guys at Insomniac down right perfected both kinds of gameplay, and the result is one of the best Ps3 exclusives to date. This time around, the universe is being overtaken by Emperor Tachyon, a little evil dude sworn to destroy every last Lombax alive. T...

The latest Ratchet and Clank game is a great game that any PS3 owner will enjoy.Being a newcomer to the Ratchet and Clank series, I didn't know exactly what to expect from the games, but after sorting out the installation glitch, I jumped right into the game and had a blast.Ratchet and Clank opens with, well, Ratchet and Clank working on a vehicle when they're interrupted by who I can only describe as Mr. Incredible and rush off to go save him from the "robot army" gathered outside of his base. ...

Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction 0

The PS3 is in desperate need of good games, but help is coming, and has already arrived in the form of the next chapter in the Ratchet and Clank series. There have been two installments since 2004's Up Your Arsenal, but one focused on shooting and multiplayer and the other was on the PSP, so this feels like the first real game in a few years. I'd been looking forward to it, and while it doesn't really take the franchise to new and exciting places, it's still a very satisfying addition. Obviously...

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools Of Destruction Review 0

There has been lots of Rachet & Clank games on PS2 but this one is first at the PS3 system. Development team shows what PS3 is capable of. This game brings all together, graphics, sound, story and characters are all great! Story starts when the city where Ratchet & Clank are is attacked. Trough the game you will learn more about Ratchets past but more secrets are revealed (what, you have play the game and find out). You will visit different planets, big cities and jungles where you will...

Greatest Ratchet game yet! 0

Ratchet and Clank future: tools of destruction is an awesome Game. The Game features a truly amazing single  player that has a good solid 12+ hours of Game play. In the Game you obtain a diverse selection of about 18 guns and 6 or 7 gadgets. you also gain different devices that aren't used for killing, but they do help you get around the 10+ worlds and Galaxy's, and not to mention around 5 different types of armor. My Favorite feature in the game is that you can upgrade you weapons that you like...

Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction 0

This past week I spent a good amount of time into the acclaimed PS3 title Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction. As a newcomer to the series I was blown away from the gorgeous graphics, sweet sound, and such smooth gameplay. I must admit that I was overwhelmed with the vivid colors in the very first level. The game just stood out so much more when compared to gray or brown-heavy games a la Battlefield 2. Graphics aside, the gameplay was something else I heavily enjoyed. You simply pick your ...

A kids game for adults 0

 I’ve always thought of Ratchet & Clank as a kid’s game – and I’ve steered clear as a result. However, after I was given a copy of Ratchet & Clank with a strong recommendation to play I figured I’d give it a go to break in my new PS3. Ratchet & Clank is like the video game equivalent of a Pixar film; a kids game that appeals to adults. It’s a relatively simple game, but the gameplay is addictive and lots of fun. I’m converted. Kids games rock.    ...

Couldn't Put it Down! 0

Ratchet and Clank Future Tools of Destruction has been out for quite some time now.  Insomniac's second PS3 games (first being Resistance Fall of Men), and first Ratchet and Clank game on the console.  I have had quite a few experience of picking up a game through rent or buy and not being able to put it down all the way to dawn and BEYOND, until I finish.  This is one of those cases.  Future Tools of Destruction was really a very fun and engaging title.  It sounded, played, and above all looked...

I loved Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. It really is a wonderful game .

You can even enjoy just looking at the levels and seeing all the stuff that is going on arou...
