From the Manufacturer

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault

Ratchet, Clank, and Captain Qwark embark on their newest adventure in Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault. Packed with replay value, the game features online / split-screen co-op and online competitive modes.

This fun-sized adventure offers a campaign you can play single-player or in co-op (split screen or online). It’s classic Ratchet & Clank gameplay with a base defense twist. Even after you play it once, you’ll want to try again to improve your scores and times.

On top of the campaign, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault has a multiplayer mode that you can play 1v1 or 2v2. And, for those of you who also own a PlayStation Vita system, the game supports cross-buy, cross-save, and competitive multiplayer cross-play. If you purchase Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault for the PS3 system, you’ll be able to download the PS Vita version at no additional cost.

It’s Time to Call In the Q-Force!

Captain Qwark has had his ups and downs, but no one can deny his success in founding the Q-Force with Ratchet and Clank, an elite team of heroes that managed to end the evil plans of Dr. Nefarious.

But now the Q-Force has a brand new enemy to face – an enemy with a nasty surprise planned for Captain Qwark. Can the Q-Force foil this plot and save Qwark, not to mention the entire universe, from total anarchy?

Key Features

  • Classic third-person co-op action: work together with a friend, playing as Ratchet, Clank, or Captain Qwark
  • Confront an alien army across six different levels: defend your base against invasions with out-of-this-world weapons and gadgets
  • Play again and again: loads of upgrades, extra character skins, and unlockable content will keep you coming back for more

I am one of Insomniac's biggest fans (I even carved Ratchet and Clank jack o'lanterns for them a few years back), and RC is my favorite franchise of all time. Yet, I cannot rubber stamp any game with a lombax in it... and unfortunately, "Full Frontal Assault" (FFA) is a bit of a disappointment for this lifelong fan (although still enjoyable).

This game is fun, don't get me wrong. If you're an RC fan, it's well worth picking it up and checking it out. It's only $20, and the fact that you can play it on two consoles (PS3 AND Vita) makes it an incredible value. Qwark is here for his usual comic relief (and as a playable character!), and you just might love the different style of play, with its emphasis on turrets, mines, and resource management. If you're a tower defense fan, you should definitely check it out, as FFA provides a unique (and rather frantic) twist on the genre. But I do have some qualms with the title, which are as follows...

Admittedly, I can't be too harsh on FFA, since it was marketed as a tower defense game, and it only costs $20. Yet, this does not quite feel like an RC game... it's fun at times, but there is something off about it, and the running back and forth between my base to defend it creates a sense of anxiety that is completely at odds with the sense of wonderment and carefree exploration that RC games generally instill within me. Other things have been subtly altered as well, such as minor control button changes, and a slightly "fuzzy" graphical approach that does not look as sharp as the "Future" series (perhaps compromise was utilized to make it run on the Vita?). The story is minimal, and does not live up to the high standards established by previous RC entries.

Therefore, many RC fans, like me, will feel somewhat disappointed with FFA.

I've played every R&C game and bought Full Frontal Assault on the first day that it came out.

The game is different from other R&C games but very interesting. You still collect bolts but use them to buy up defense turrets and mines to protect your base rather than to buy up weapons. You still get weapons that upgrade based on the number of enemies you've killed with them. You face an open world with "weapons drop boxes" and gold bolts scattered throughout the world. Every time you collect one of the weapons drop boxes, then you get a new weapon and the next wave of enemies is unleashed on your base. So you can control the pace of the onslaught if you want to explore and build up defenses by not collecting the weapons boxes.

The game is short. The time frame for earning the first time-bonus medal for planet 1 (Markazia) is 21 minutes. I spent 60 minutes smashing every tree/box/enemy in the place... Another medal offered for completing the level in under 13:30 minutes. Another medal offered for completing the level in under 10 minutes. To collect all time-bonus medals takes less than 73.5 minutes of game play: 10 minutes on Markazia, 15 minutes on Ebaro, 23 minutes on Proteus VII, and 22:30 minutes on Ebaro Snow Storm. You can only hit those time markers after playing through the levels to build up the weapons though. Still--all-in it's way less than 10 hours of game play without the online component.

1) the system for switching weapons is annoying because the game doesn't pause when you press the weapon select button. If you want to scan the weapon types for the weapon with the most ammo, then you either have to walk away from enemies while doing it or get hit.

Ratchet and Clank is without a doubt one of my favorite Playstation franchises of all time. With that being said, I find the series recently is just [Product Review Title]. This installment just isn't like the R&C's of old. I mean the story is a bit of a stretch because a rather obscure character is the main villain (Hint: R&C: Going Commando Side-Quest). Yes, there is freedom to go out from your base, which you must defend from enemies, but there is just not any real platforming in the way R&C is known for. The game looks great, don't get me wrong, but it isnt R&C: Future caliber. This installment is REALLY SHORT like the downloadable entry Quest for Booty, but QfB was a lot more fun in my opinion because THAT was a typical R&C adventure, however short. While that is a bit negative, this game is still good. Just think: "At least its not the PS2 version of Secret Agent Clank or Size Matters."

+ Still a good looking game
+ Weapons are still fun to use

- You could finish this game (with dedication) in 6 hours. Not Kidding.
- Story is just disappointing and that's upsetting when I talk about Ratchet and Clank.

Overall: Its not the worst R&C out there but the last two entries (this and All 4 One) have been let-downs. (6/10)

While this game takes on the different approach of a guard your base mentality it's still fun and enjoying to play as you revisit all of the endearing characters of the series as well as a quirky villain who seems an equal to Captain Quark(Which isn't saying much) The graphics and effects are nicely done and the comedic and quirky storyline is very hilarious in itself. So if you already have other games of the series for the price this is going for I'd say it's a bargain to add to your gaming collection...

Update 02-5-2013

After playing the game for a few of the first missions I sadly had to lower the rating of the game not due to the story or characters but as many other gamers have stated the dreaded castle defense play in it. Unlike previous Ratchet and Clank this one mainly seems to have the situation where you must protect your bases generators from attack while at the same time going out and attacking and trying to destroy the enemies base. I'm sorry but it got a little to monotonous when I had to keep running or rocket booting back to my base to protect the generators and set up defenses every five minutes. All I can say is hopefully the next game does not utilize this annoying scenario into the game.
