Ratchet and Clank is a culmination of everything Insomniac has done with the series over the past 14 years. It takes the characters that we fell in love with long ago, and sets them off on their most gorgeous quest yet.

Ratchet & Clank's comeback on PS4 is a truly enjoyable and intoxicating third person shooter. It really doesn't add anything to a well known formula, but it's a blast while it lasts!

Developing a reimagining of the original game instead of a sequel was a risky move, but it pays off handsomely with a robust weapon system and outstanding gameplay meshed perfectly together in the visually beautiful Ratchet & Clank.
A glorious looking debut for Ratchet & Clank on PS4 that retains the superb ebb and flow the series has always had. It doesn't do a huge amount new, but what's here is great fun.
Ratchet & Clank is a gorgeous remake done right in a series that rarely puts a foot wrong. Easily recommended.
Ratchet & Clank succeeds because it's a Ratchet & Clank game, which sounds like a ludicrous thing to say. What I mean is, it doesn't concern itself with being a movie tie-in, and I think that's helped by the fact the movie doesn't seem too concerned about being a videogame tie-in.
