First things first, I had gotten Ratchet and Clank 1 in a PS2 bundle pretty much the week or so after release, wasn't sure what to expect. Absolutely loved the game, except couldn't beat Drek for the longest time, drove me crazy (I was 9, don't be too harsh). Ever since then, I've loved Ratchet and Clank, every game seemed to improve on the former, except maybe Deadlocked, that was a bit of a set back for me.
Flash forward to now, and CiT is a fantastic game. Granted, it is a bit darker than it's older titles, but it's only because it finally gives us answers to what happens to the Lombax population in more detail, more about Ratchet's family, etc. Story was a little predictable, but there's not much you can do with time travel in fiction that hasn't already been done.
Being able to fly from planet to planet was a new surprise, though now it's a static horizontal only motion, no up down, makes space combat a bit difficult. Has a ton of smaller planets to mess around on.
For anyone with a Wii that played Mario Galaxy, CiT is a similar vein, being able to travel from planet to planet, larger planets move the plot along, smaller planets have side quests and puzzles, things to find, etc.
Weapons were good in this game, but felt a bit weak (though I was playing on Hard, so that could've effected it.)
The Constructo weapon mods are kind of a let down, simply because there are 15 or so weapons iirc, but only three are compatible with the mods, a blaster, grenade launcher, and shotgun.
Overall, these complaints were minor, the game was simply fantastic. In my opinion, CiT best in the series, followed by Going Commando.

love the game,as starting to be a gamer this was good game,and sure to check out more games like it. the only thing i would say was a little bother is that sometimes the camera was hard to get it to face the front,so there for i couldn't see the enemies in front so took long to defeat.
