I rented this game expecting a Ratchet and Clank type game. What it is is a very poor altered copy of R&C. The games story and play style is aimed at children, but the controls are terrible (locking onto an enemy and attacking is is awful) and the difficulty is just bizarre. While you can level up, you can't reply anything for more experience so if you're having problems in an area, you can't go back and get more powerful. I found myself having problems on (I think it was) the 3rd stage and eventually gave up because I couldn't beat a min boss.
Basically a low end attempt to clone games like 'Ratchet and Clank' and 'Jax and Daxter'. The story is actually a bit reminiscent of a mix of plots from R&C. But the game play is quite flat. The platforming aspect of the game is never really realized. There is very limited challenge as far as the typical jumping 'puzzles' of a platformer go.
Some of the voice acting is well done, some is VERY bad. The animation of the game while you are playing is quite good overall, the animation during the cut scenes has it's moments of good and bad.
The controls seem to go from bad to worse in a hurry. The lock on feature just does whatever it wants. Even when you target something, then click the other button to lock on it does not stay locked on! And moving around to strafe a target will usually end up in loosing your lock on.
You can get upgraded weapons, but the guns seem to lack any kind of creativity. You can eventually upgrade your 'powers' as well, but their use in the game is a bit awkward, and in some cases takes to long.
