Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time

Insomniac already said the Ratchet & Clank sequel was coming in Fall of 2009 (at the end of the Quest for Booty downloadable game) so this isn’t exactly a new announcement. But now, the sequel has a name. And we get a “teaser” trailer tomorrow. I’m expecting that this trailer is merely some CG padding without any gameplay shots.


Here is my brief two-point wish list. Care to add any others?

  1. Evolve the game play beyond just adding more content and levels. I loved pretty much every R&C title thus far including Tools of Destruction and Quest for Booty. However, the series does need to evolve in some way. How? Honestly, I don’t know. But I’m sure the guys that work on this game year round have had some good ideas.
  2. Don’t dumb it down. Tools of Destruction kept the weapons store, several upgrade systems, a full weapon wheel, and a health bar while Resistance 2 got stripped down to a more on-rails script-heavy type of experience. They can’t make it too complicated, because it needs to be accessible to a younger audience. I’m hoping that they can continue to do what Pixar is notorious for doing with movies: make one product that appeals to both kids and adults on different levels.
