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!

Try as it might, Tools of Destruction doesn't achieve the same level of greatness as its predecessors. It's too easy, the story falls flat, and the "throw everything in including the kitchen sink" style of gameplay takes too much of the focus off the tight platforming and fun combat. That said, the gorgeous visuals and generally fun gameplay are enough to make Tools of Destruction worthwhile for the series' fans and newcomers alike.

The voice acting isn't bad, either--particularly number one bad guy Tachyon, whose lines are absolutely nailed. The interactive, orchestral score adds tension in all the right places, and overall, this is one well-presented piece of software. Pessimists will say that Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is basically the same game that Insomniac has been creating for half a decade. And they'll be right. The optimist will say it's the best in a series of incredible games. And they'll also be right.

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.
