Game Review: Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest For Booty
A new Ratchet & Clank game! … without Clank. Check out the other side for my review of Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty.
The game starts off where Tools of Destruction left off. Clank has been kidnapped by the Zoni and it’s up to Ratchet to find him and bring him home. After a run-in with some pirates and a trip to Hoolefar Island, Ratchet finds a device that will help him find the exact location of Clank. Only one problem though: the device won’t work without the Fulcrum Star, a piece of Captain Darkwater’s buried treasure. So Ratchet and Talwyn set off with a treasure map they found to find the Fulcrum Star.
While the game is very short, it still lives up to its predecessor with a few minor drawbacks and improvements. New to the game is the ability to throw your wrench to manipulate certain platforms (remember this as you will use it often) or to attack enemies. Missing from the previous game is the massive weapon upgrades. You also have to get used to playing the game without the help of Clank. Despite the drawbacks, I was really happy with the game considering it was only $15. Unless you really don’t like the Ratchet & Clank series or you don’t have a Playstation 3, I’d say go buy this game.
