Rift Apart is the ps5's first killer app. Rift Apart has superbly designed planets with each planet offering something different to the player, with one planet having a dimension swap gimmick and another being an open world playground makes every planet a treat to visit. The weapons are the star of the shows as often is the case in the ratchet games with old favorites and new weapons that fit perfectly into the combat system make every second of combat an absolute joy. The use of haptic feedback makes the weapons feel even more gratifying to use than in previous games. The graphics are jaw dropping on ray tracing 60fps mode and the framerate was buttery smooth throughout. The story in rift apart is a huge improvment on the movication that occured in the 2016 game, but still has moments where the disney like kids writing comes out with characters repeating or stating things unnaturally just to ensure no one misses some of it's beats. The characters are great but Rivet steals the show in every scene she's in. The story is engaging but a few weak moments are peppered throughout. The soundtrack is enjoyable in the moment but not overly memorable beyond it. The gameplay loop is the best thing about the game is the gameplay loop as leveling up weapons gives constant gratification all through the game. The extra content the game offers is designed greatly and I only wish there was more of it which can be said about the game as a whole. Rift apart is a phenomenal game that while short is a must play for all PS5 owners
