Insomniac takes its turn at tower defense to near-excellent results. A lot of games have tried infusing Tower Defense into the adventure formula and have failed miserably i.e Assassin's Creed Revelations. In this case it works well and goes beyond being simply that. there is a bit of story and The great characters and fun game play save this somewhat repetitive and at times, frustrating entry in the long running series from being a failure. Insomniac needs to be applauded for taking chances with the series and keeping it from going completely stale. Some issues, like leveling up and acquiring weapons are a bit more difficult than they need to be at times and may turn off a lot gamers. But, it still has many of the intangibles that makes this series so great. And still has the great game play and personality its known for. This game is also noticeably harder when playing alone. But things get a bit small on screen when playing 2 player split screen. So, you need a big screen for this game. Much of this may sound like a negative, but something about this game is still very very good. And its a great deal at 19.99 (you get a version of the game for both PS3 and Vita. Give it a shot and see for yourself. This is a solid entry that deserves a look from everyone.
They can't just have a tower defense game with a R&C skin. I wish they gave you more options in the single player because you are always running back to defend your base instead of completing the level, No matter how much you spend on "Base Defenses". This is a good game to keep Ratchet and Clank in your mind until you can rent the next one.
