The graphics are absolutely stunning but the gameplay is predictable and surprisingly uneventful, as the game fails to leverage its technical achievements for anything more than straightforward spectacle.

It's as long as any other Ratchet game, but it feels like it flies by in a flash, and is a hard one to put down

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart looks and plays better than ever thanks to new-generation hardware, but it's still the same lovable, goofy series at heart.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart isn’t afraid to revel in its mascot-platformer roots, but it manages to knock so many of its competitors completely out of the water.

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is the first PS5 exclusive that I can recommend everyone go out and buy. It’s a cutting-edge masterclass of what the PS5 is capable of, but with the soul of the original R&C games, packaged with a comprehensive set of accessibility options.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is, on the one hand, a sublime technical experience that makes perfect use of the benefits of PS5 to be the most next-gen thing I've played so far. But on the other hand, it is much more than a simple demonstration of power.

In many ways Rift Apart is the first "next gen" game. It truly feels like playing a Pixar movie, with great details, animations and an impressive weapon catalogue. Traveling trough dimensions mechanics never cease to amaze.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the PlayStation 5 showcase you have been waiting for. Instantaneous travel to worlds thanks to the SSD, thumping 3D audio, ray tracing through the gorgeous levels, and clever use of the DualSense bring the many locations to life. Paired with classic Ratchet & Clank gameplay, this game is a riotous feast of explosions, platforming, and fast paced action.

Whether you've had adventures with Ratchet & Clank in the past or not, Rift Apart is not a game to be missed. It's one of the best games you can get for your PS5 and one of the best games of 2021 so far, period.

A continuist sequel but that knows how to add what is necessary and incorporate new ideas. It's true that the greater breadth of its maps is not fully exploited and that wanting to make a longer game by repeating situations and enemies turn virtue into routine, but Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a great PS5 game, very fun and recommended.

This is a full-fat, planet-hopping, mystery-filled adventure that PS5 owners will lap up and non-owners will resent not being able to play, perhaps through no lack of trying.

Ratchet & Clank: Drift Apart is a visual masterpiece and a joyful game, that unfortunately fails to reinvent itself and is a bit too predictable.

In vesting each weapon with the click and whir of a plaything, it gives you a way into the texture of its landscape, and before long you're swept up.
