Into the Nexus goes back to classic Ratchet and Clank mechanics. With the same type of platforming you'd find in the previous games with a new mechanic where you create a stream of gravity to push and pull you towards the next area, and also to secret areas. The awesomely unique weapons are back like the Nightmare Box that scares enemies for a bit, the Winterizer that turns enemies into snowmen, and Mr. Zurkon is back and he brought Zurkon Jr. and Mrs. Zurkon with him!
I played on the Legend (difficulty) which I felt added the perfect amount of challenge to the game for me. It really made me spend more time during fights trying not to get hit, rather than just plowing through the enemies and beating the game. Speaking of combat, I loved how much would be going on during boss fights and even some mob fights, especially the final boss. There were so many things going on on the screen that it looked like pure chaos, and I loved it. Destructapalooza, the lava surrounded arena you love from other Ratchet and Clank games is back again. While I found it enjoyable I didn't find it too much of a challenge to completely beat it.
The story itself was solid, thought I wouldn't say it's anything special, it was just pretty short. I probably beat the game in about 7-8 hours and that includes backtracking to get all of the golden bolts and Ryno VII holo plans. But for $30 I absolutely feel that I got my money's worth for this game. But, keep in mind, that when you beat the game you unlock Challenge mode which is a sort of new game plus.Read more ›
Story: Ratchet is on board a prison ship carrying a deadly criminal named Vendra. Vendra's goal is to use a reverse dimensionator to bring her species into our world. When Vendra's twin brother springs Vendra, it's up to Ratchet and Clank to stop her before she brings the Nether and their terrifying leader, Mr. Eye, into our world and destroying the galaxy!
Gameplay: Now on to the good stuff. Like all Ratchet and Clank games, Insomniac likes to experiment with new elements into each of their games, this one, focuses on a zero gravity element. You have unique shoes that allow you to pull yourself onto certain platforms and perform gravity jumps to other platforms. Also, about 2 levels in, you get your hands on a modified Levitator (This game has a lot of Going Commando's influence) which allows you to fly as long as you have fuel and fight in mid-air. All of these elements are exceptionally well done.Read more ›
Here we have the R&C standards you expect - crazy weapons, lots of humor, and a lot of just plain fun. The Nightmare Box is now my personal favorite for hilarious weapons - it's a tie with the Groovitron. The jet pack is excellent and easy to use, and the gravity tethers are a great idea. Sadly, they're a bit underused, and the back-in-true-form fun gameplay doesn't stack up because...
I was shocked, I mean REALLY SHOCKED, at how short this game is. You could only come up with three planets? Really? One is an arena and doesn't count. When the final battle, which I was assuming was just a hard boss, was over, I couldn't believe my eyes. I mean, wow, no one could come up with more? Is this really it?
So there's no need to go into greater depth with this review, I'll just sum up with the good and bad:
Super fun weapons, they haven't lost their touch. The Nightmare Box is LOL. Level it up!
Easy controls and smooth movement.
Great overall fun.
You can choose traditional 3rd person or target lock mode, and switch at any time.
It looks really, really good.
OMG is it really this short? I can't emphasize enough just how UNBELIEVABLY short this game is. No excuse for an R&C game.
The Clank netherworld parts, which are clever but annoying (Clank parts usually are).
I can't believe it's already over - oh wait, I already mentioned that.
This is what I was hoping for and isn't. It is because, as an R&C game, it's very, very good. It isn't because you don't get much of one. I'm so sad.
