About this game

Developer: Insomniac Games
Content Rating: Everyone10+


fter saving countless planets from dreadful doom and earning intergalactic mega-celebrity status in the process, Ratchet and Clank have taken some well-deserved R&R -- again. Yet, Ratchet remains restless. An orphan of the universe, he has never known anything of his past, his family, or his Lombax origins. And no one, not even Clank, can fill that void. Unfortunately for Ratchet, someone else is equally interested in Ratchet's origins: Emperor Percival Tachyon. In his thirst for revenge, the vile tyrant of an ancient race of foul insect-like monsters called Cragmites has festered an age-old grudge and is bent on wiping the last-known Lombax off the universe!

It's pacing, polish, and through-the-roof production values make Tools of Destruction an outstanding effort. So many series suffer from sequilitis, offering second, third or fourth entries that reek of phoned-in, uninspired development. But Insomniac has done the complete opposite, creating an experience that's clearly a labor of love for Ratchet and Clank's keepers. A sequel is inevitable, but topping this level of gaming goodness should pose the Lombax's greatest challenge.

First off, here's what Ratchet & Clank Future isn't: it's not a revolutionary experience that'll make Xbox 360 owners claw out their own eyes in despair. It's not a roaring justification of the high cost of owning a PS3. What it is, though, is a beautiful, relentlessly entertaining shooty-platformer, and easily the best game in the Ratchet & Clank series thus far. Considering that Ratchet & Clank practically defined platform-hopping games during the PS2 era, that's saying a lot.

That's not to say that Tools of Destruction is not a must-have game for the PS3, and not because of the currently thin software library. At the end of the day, if you own a PS3 and you haven't played this game, you're doing yourself a great disservice. By anyone's standards, if you enjoy fun, varied gameplay experiences, we won't let you sit at our table at lunch if you miss this game.
