A kids game that's fun for adults

I'm not sure what I was expecting going into this, my only exposure to the franchise was playing the demo for crack in time a long time ago and very much disliking it, but the price was right and I decided to give it a shot.

I was completely blown away by this game, great platforming, great shooting, amazing variety of weapons to use, collectables all over the place, very good story and characters then I had a realization, this game is Sunset Overdrive but it came out first.

Only having quick access to 4 weapons at a time was a major drag and made some of the boss fights much harder than they needed to be.

The game really looks fantastic but I had issues with the final few cutscenes where the game would lag out as if watching a streaming video that was buffering, never had something like that happen in a game before, no issues while actually playing the game.

Liked it, and I'll have to give sunset overdrive another shot.

    Something Old, Something New 0

    There was a time when a year seemingly couldn't go by without a Ratchet & Clank game. Insomniac Games released a whopping thirteen Ratchet & Clank games between 2002 and 2013. Thus, even a three year absence at the start of Sony's latest console generation was notable, even if the intention was to use the latest game as part of promotional efforts for the recent animated movie. Concerns that the result would come off as a cheap movie tie-in were thus certainly justified. Fortunately, we ...
