Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a fun and charming adventure with good level design and better movement options. Just like other Insomniac's projects it can feel derivative and safe, but that doesn't take away from its quality.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the first game I've played since the ninth-generation consoles launched that feels like a true next-gen title. Insomniac Games has done everything that it needed to do in making both a sequel to its longest-running franchise and a true next-gen exclusive. While it might not technically be a PlayStation 5 launch title, it feels like one-a real preview of the console's capabilities. But beyond that, Rift Apart is just an absolute blast to play.
Dynamic duo is back and they are more dynamic than ever. And they are not just a duo anymore with Rivet and a new gang across dimensions.

PlayStation mascots bring the solid state sauce for family-friendly PS5 exclusive
Insomniac Games deliver a Rivet-ing new Ratchet & Clank video game, one of the best protagonists in years while evolving the gameplay and proving that Sony purchasing the studio was the right decision. Rift Apart is the one exclusive on PlayStation that everyone needs to experience.
Rift Apart cements Ratchet and Clank as one of PlayStation's premier franchises.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the best game in the series since Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, which franchise fans will recognise as high praise. The familiar combat is elevated by outstanding DualSense implementation, while Insomniac Games' imaginative gameplay design keeps each planet interesting and engaging. It's not a particularly challenging platformer, nor is it necessarily all that original – but it doesn't need to be. This is one of those games that's just really, really good.
