Ratchet Clank 2016 Review

Ratchet Clank 2016 Review

Ratchet & Clank is one of the most popular platform game series out there and it has finally received a new entry. This 2016 version is basically a reboot of the first game and it was designed with some new mechanics and enemies in mind which is quite impressive to say the least.

The visuals in this Ratchet & Clank are amazing to be honest and they clearly show the attention to detail that was placed in the creation of this title. The game worlds are large, vibrant and filled with color, exactly what you can expect from a game in this series and it’s just a lot of fun to explore, all that the game has to offer.

The main characters are as funny as always and the story is decent, much better than what you would expect considering the last two games in the series.

And even if this is a re-imagining of the first game, there are some gameplay elements that differ when compared with the original. For example you now have health upgrades and weapon upgrades. You even get weapons that came after the first game, which does make the experience refined and more interesting. You do get the fan favorite Pixelizer which does help you in various moments as you play.

It’s nice to see that the game integrates motion blur but at times it just seems too much to be honest. It does tend to deliver some visual tear because of that which might not be the best thing but on the other hand the experience is truly immersive and that’s what really matters at the end of the day.

Performance is good on the PS4 and, as a whole, the game does tend to run perfectly and without any glitches. It’s nice to see that you obtain a very good value and quality for what you pay and the fact that Ratchet & Clank still has the same attitude and funny dialogues does tend to make their chemistry feel more alive than ever.

It’s nice to see how exciting the experience really gets and the fact that you can clear hundreds of quests as you try to reach the end truly shows the commitment of the devs to recreate the original story and also add in something cool in it.

Ratchet & Clank is a blast to play and it just delivers the fixation for quality moments. It’s definitely a very interesting title to play and you are bound to enjoy it for sure. Of course, there are some issues here and there but the fact that you get new upgrades, weapons and abilities brings a new perspective on the original story. It’s the best way to check out Ratchet & Clank in its all glory and it really is a ton of fun, that’s for sure!
