Ratchet and Clank mixed with a little Super Mario,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
I have been a fan of the R&C series for a long time. I own all of the games, with the exception of the portables. This is not your typical R&C game. In fact it almost seems like Insomniac went away from the model which worked for so many years to go more towards a Super Mario side scroller multi-player. In a way this is a step backwards. Yes, the graphics are nice and the game play is fun; but not what you would expect of a R&C game. The majority of the game it seems like you are playing from sooooo far away. I am sure this was done to fit all 4 players on the same screen. If the goal was to make R&C an online multi-player there are other ways to do this without removing what made R&C series unique. One of the reasons I purchased a PS3 in the first place was for the exclusives titles like R&C and GOW. Hopefully the next R&C will not be a side scroller and still include a online multi-player. Don't get me wrong, this is a fun game and I would still recommend it; its just not up to par with some of the others in the R&C series. It is a good game, not a great one.
