The name says it all, Ratchet: Deadlocked, no Clank, no fun (Clank is there just not a playable character). Instead you have thinking/feeling versions of Mr. Zurkon. Who fall down and force you to risk your life to save them. Nice.
Basically, the game is a elongated Arena Level. You would think that this would carry the game, but it doesn't. I don't care about the characters and what happens to them. Not even Ratchet.
To Make Matters worse, the story seems to be contrived around the levels/multiplayer aspect. Which is very odd considering how good they usually are in constructing the story.
If you are looking for Multiplayer with Ratchet and Clank, look elsewhere. Try Ratchet Clank: All 4 One for the PS3. It has better reviews and plays a lot better than this game. Or better yet, ditch the multiplayer thing and go play any of the other Ratchet & Clank titles. It will be worth it!

There are severe technical deficiencies in this game. The shadows randomly scatter into grey noise over all brushes in the level. The frame rate drops so low that the game actually slows down in many places. It also randomly freezes entirely, forcing a reboot and losing all progress. Rent only if you are a true completist with regard to the Ratchet & Clank franchise.
