Turns out, IGN has the first review up for the game, giving it a 9/10. Though I feel it will be largely overlooked due to the release of Uncharted 2 last week (and the fact that, really, only people who are familiar with Sony’s systems and games, would be able to recognize who Ratchet and Clank are). I hope people will pick this game up because it’s another one of those great looking and great playing franchises that folks should pick up. Here’s what IGN had said about the game:
Insomniac has created a visually appealing game with enough personality to match its good looks. With so much to level-up and enjoy, there’s enough to keep even hardcore Ratchet fans coming back for more — especially with the new Clank sections that feature some enthralling puzzles. Now that the awkward space sections from Tools of Destruction have been replaced, there’s almost nothing I don’t like about Crack in Time. Unfortunately, as Crack in Time still relies heavily on the tried and true Ratchet Formula, gamers that were satisfied with old Ratchet games might not have enough reasons to come back.
To keep you all in the loop of information, this Friday is Insomniac’s Community Day (10AM to 4:30PM), so if you live around their HQ, be sure to stop by and pick up some swag, get some autographs, eat food and drink drinks! If it’s like the Resistance 2 Community Day, expect a panel discussion as well!
Beyond that, be sure to check out the Ratchet and Clank space in PlayStation Home. Quest for Booty is also on sale in the Store as well, if you’re inclined to check that out as well, all for the release of A Crack in Time.
As a final bit of news, there will be two demos released on the PlayStation Store, the first of which will appear this Thursday, featuring Clank. Here’s a few details concering that:
In this demo, you’ll take get to take control of Clank as he explores the Great Clock learning more about his past and his new time-based abilities that you’ll need to utilize to solve puzzles and defeat some of Dr. Nefarious’ minions. This is some brand new gameplay that Insomniac Games is introducing to the series and we all hope you enjoy it!
Details on the Ratchet demo will come up in a couple days or so, so be sure to check back often for Ratchet and Clank, as well as other PS3 related, news.
