After playing the first three ratchet games (beating two of them) i expected this game to be "great" but i was a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong its definitely worth playing maybe even buying. But from a loyal Ratchet fan i think the others were better. I didn't like the plot line very much (they are on a planet where they have to battle all the time or somethin') If your a fan of Adventure games rent it but i think Ratchet and Clank Up Your Arsenal is a better use of your time.
Ratchet Deadlocked. The 4th in the Ratchet & Clank series. It has gone from a platformer to an arena fighter shoot-em-up. Ratchet Deadlocked's a good game but I remember Insomniac & Naughty Dog saying Up your Arsenal and Jak 3 were the last in the series, but they both made a 4th game. If you ask me, it's getting repetitive. This game was fun, but veterans of the series will beat easy mode in less than a day. Even the hardest mode on the majority of missions is pretty easy to veterans. The story's kinda stale too compared to the others. The weapons are great though. You can upgrade them to level 99 for goodness sakes! The battle bots help a lot too; plus they're pretty funny, one sounds oddly like Mr. T though. I was disappointed with the fact that Clank was almost out of the entire game. Clank was cool. The unlockables were tons-o-fun. I think it was a really good game, bit it could have been better than it was though. Oh! The first first person and lock-strafe modes were cool.
Yo for those who looked at this game as cartoony check again. This game more fun Jax and Sly teamed 2 the extremes. Ratchet Deadlocked delivers action-packed weaponry with upgradeable mods. This game got a 9.5 overall you can't pass this up. So get Ratchet Deadlocked this is best platformer 2 date blastin' Jax, Sly and Crash 2 the mid 80's and beyond. Believe me this game i'll rip you a new one.
