Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault
Solid, Replayable Experience
First off, played straight through, this game only lasts about 2-4 hours, roughly the same as the earlier budget title Quest For Booty. However, Full Frontal Assault has a much longer lasting appeal, which I'll touch upon later.
In each level you have a base with six generators that the enemies are trying to destroy while you go out and complete mission objectives. They only invade the base at set times, so you are free to head back to base and dispatch them yourself with any weapons you have found. In addition, you can use the bolts you find scattered across the level to purchase base defenses including turrets, mines and barriers infused with Ratchet & Clank weapons such as the Groovitron and Transmorpher, which respectively cause the enemies to undergo uncontrollable dancing fits or transform into small, cute, harmless creatures.
The main story can be played alone or with a partner and spans five levels, which shouldn't take very long to knock out. These do have some replay value, with hidden Gold Bolts to unlock new skins, and Insomniac Challenge times, but where the game's real staying power is is in its multiplayer. Like the main game, you have a base with six generators that you can fortify, but unlike the story, so does your opponent. Matches can be played as 1vs1 or 2vs2, and consist of multiple phases. The first phase is RECON, during which you capture weapon nodes and collect bolts, followed by a transition phase where you can purchase base defenses as well as enemies to help attack your opponent's base. Lastly, there is the assault phase, in which the bases are open for attack until all hostiles are eliminated, at which point the cycle loops until one team has no generators remain.
For a short budget title, it's remarkably well done and has plenty of staying power. It's no Crack in Time or Up Your Arsenal, but it's certainly a solid addition to the Ratchet & Clank series. I strongly recommend it.
$20? That's it? Amazing!
For a very small price of $20, It is a must have for Ratchet & Clank fans. Not only is it cross-buy to get the PS3 Version and the Vita version free, but since the Vita version got delayed, Sony is giving away free copies of Ratchet & Clank Deadlocked HD on the PS3 [For users that buy the console version on disk or download, buy the console version AT ANY POINT IN TIME, and still get Deadlocked Free!]. The gameplay is just outstanding, it has an easy set of instructions of what to do once you start. The game is unique and entitles you to another version free. I think this is one of the best games for strategy, It doesn't have any actual story to it, but a fun tower defense game. I like games where you can replay the story over again rather than just replay a tower defense type of thing. Thats where the lasting appeal comes in. Even if your not a huge fan of Ratchet and Clank, I recommend getting this game if you like defending bases and getting another two games free!
R&C Full Frontal Assault is a best game ever
guys, this game is awesome, what r u guys talking about? graphics/gameplay/sounds/ and lasting appeal is better.. Even they have pvp base mode or capture the base. u guys are wrong, i'm gonna buy this game, and it is better than other game.
Not the Best R&C
While this game was okay it wasn't the normal Ratchet and Clank games... it has a Short Single Player story that's so so but nothing to write home about. The MP is meh nothing spectacular just more of the Single player Game play but against other people.
If you are someone that wants to try out the Series this is one i would skip if your all about Story... this game seems like it was thrown together quick & not much work put into it... even the Skins are different than the other games... Ratchet has super big ears (bigger than normal) and Clank has a overly large head when before he has a smaller head...
It's not the best but good
I really like this game alot but i really miss saving up bolts exploring worlds buying new guns and clank on your back. it's a good game but i would prefer the old style of ratchet and clank
Worst Ratchet and Clank Ever
This is probably the worst Ratchet and Clank game I ever played. Yeah, it's $20, I get it. But I'd much rather pay 50 to get a game that lasts longer than 2 hours. I was completely shocked when it was over, all I could say was this is it?! Nor is it was Ratchet used to be, I miss running around in worlds, looking for new gadgets, upgrading guns, saving bolts and having Clank on your back.
This Was A Huge Disappointment
I played every ratchet and clank i love the franchise but cmon tower defense and why isnt clank on ratchets back anymore what happened to the classics all 4 one and full frontal assault are just not appealing its corny and not the same. i miss the classical gameplay of ratchet and clank the price shoulda been 9$ cause this was not what i expected im trading this thing in as soon as i get the chance do not get this if your a hardcore rachet and clank game fan like me
I do not support this game this and all for one was just stupid Insomniac is trying make it multiplayer but in my view Ratchet and clank has always been a single player game the first, second and third games were great awesome stories the 4 was ok in game play but still a good story then tools of destruction was also great amazing story and in a crack in time was also good how they got inventive and made the traveling from place to place and quest for booty was good because it was a filler between TOD and CIT but when the tried to make all 4 1 multi player it was just a no no just how they had it set up u have to use play with a computer and they made it way to Kidish and the story just wasn't as good when the first 3 came out there were great u wanted to play the story over and over again and it took a bit of time to beat it the story was the best because there was no multiplayer so the story had to be the best that's what I wanted to say multiplayer has ruined some of the best games I am a die hard R@C fan but the multiplayer took the quality down like other great stories is the sly cooper series 1-3 and jack and daxter 1-3 those two series and ratchet and clank is my book are the the one of the best to the best stories ever
This is a great game
This game is worth way more then 20$ the game play is really good and the story is okay the graphics are really nice. This game though in my opinion is not as good as ratchet and clank future crack in time but its still a very good game and would recommend it
not the best but VERY FUN
this game is pretty short and campaign does't really have a good story.but online is pretty addicting. its pretty much the same as all for one but its 2 players. i think this is worth the price.
