Forums - Sony Discussion - Ratchet & Clank review and metacritic thread: 86 currently

"Ratchet & Clank is the closest thing to playable Pixar"

telegraph is in love with this Game :

""It is this pep and variety that makes Ratchet & Clank feel like a proper adventure, providing an excellent time right up until the credits roll, and into a new mode unlocked upon completion. While we’re all busy waiting for Uncharted 4 to show us what the PlayStation 4 can do, Insomniac has tapped into the console’s power and funneled it through the lens of an animated movie. Not only is Ratchet & Clank the best family-friendly game that I’ve played in a long time, it’s one of PS4’s standout titles and a blistering return to the glory days of the 3D platformer.""

5/5

Hooray! My AV is justified after all! I'm holding out hope for the movie being good too, but my outlook is not so hopeful on that.

The plot of the movie is literally the same as the plot of the game with one minor change in character. Hell, it was written by the same guy on both sides (TJ Fixman, writer of the PS3 games onward). I wouldn't be worried about the film. I'd be worried that the film may attract a huge young fanbase that forces the direction of the series to become broader

Too early to go "called it" ?

Hey, it can still go up or down a percent, so don't get in your laurels just yet! I'm still banking on 87!



You should check out my YouTube channel, The Golden Bolt!  I review all types of video games, both classic and modern, and I also give short flyover reviews of the free games each month on PlayStation Plus to tell you if they're worth downloading.  After all, the games may be free, but your time is valuable!

86/100 is a great score!!!
Ratchet & Clank will be a masterpiece!!! Can't wait to put the disc in my Playstation 4!!!

Success! I loved Tools Of Destruction and even more so, A Crack In Time. Looking forward to this one.

I won't speak in detail, having read the movie novelization and knowing how the game's got a frame story, but Qwark doesn't seem nearly as malicious in the film's plot as the game's. It's almost as if the game is meant to tie very slightly back into GC and the film would jump right past the plot of GC and go right into the next major plot.
