I love Ratchet and clank. I've been playing them for a long time and have been looking forwatd to this game. But this game was the biggest appointment ever. It really didnt stick to the normal story lines. It was boring and redunant.. I rather drink a glass of water then play this game. Complete waste of time.

I'm a huge fan of the Ratchet & Clank franchise but this entry (like All 4 One) took a solid concept and tried to shoehorn a flash-in-the-pan style of game (tower defense in this case) where there wasn't room for one. Imagine you're in a typical R&C title, but instead of fighting your way through multiple beautiful alien worlds full of exotic baddies, you have one level that is relatively small and enclosed. You must find weapon caches on this world to survive (although you do not get to keep weapons between worlds, which is balls). Every 5-10 minutes of exploring this world, you must return to "home base" where waves of identical enemies come rushing at your various turrets/barricades/etc and you have to spend money to maintain them. It's a tedious bet-hedging between two otherwise solid styles of game, and it really is not enjoyable as a result.
The game play wasn't bad, but Somethings I didn't really like. the fact that sometimes I got a nearly endless wave after wave of destruction drones (What ever they were called) and mainly the shortness. I enjoyed the gameplay and storyline, I amazingly guessed who the bad guy was before he revealed his identity and I was glad he was brought up and also that I remembered him Lol. All in all I think this game should have been a downloadable game, but that is just my opinion
