Ratchet, Clank, and Al got taken by Gleeman Vox. Now Ratchet is Force to compete in a underground game call Dread zone. With the help of Clank and Al they are forced to watch their Lombax ... See full summary »
In a primitive tribal world where strange, monstrous, animalistic machines roam the wilderness, a brave young female warrior goes on a quest to learn the truth about her mysterious origin and the state the world is in.
Gameplay-wise the game is nigh-identical to the original, only with a good third of the levels missing. This, combined with the fact that the game has been bled dry of the heart and soul of the original, and just turned into the most generic, by the book game imaginable (Hell, why did they replace all the music with generic action movie score?), means that this game is inferior in almost every way to the PS2 original. It only misses out on a 1/10 by making the hoverboard sections more fun and fleshed out, and by having some quality of life additions that aren't in the original.
Just play the original. You'll have a much better experience overall. The number of people I've seen praising this game I consider to be an insult to the franchise. Almost as big an insult as the fact Insomniac considered this to be an acceptable product. If this is what they consider Ratchet and Clank to be, then I sincerely hope they never touch the franchise again.
