Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus
short and sweet
This was yet again a short and sweet ratchet and clank game to keep all the fans happy. while i will say i was disappointed that we didnt get a full ratchet game, the insomniac team is still working on the movie set to release next year. overall into the nexus was everything a RAC should be, is was a very short game but it was also only $30. Definently worth playing, especially if you are a RAC fan.
Why does insomniac hate us
I purchased this came thinking they would go back to their classic ratchet and clank formula but they didn't do it right. It took to much from all 4 one and not enough from classic. not to mention the so called "puzzles" that are insultingly easy. To add to it it only has 5 levels including the final area and arena which takes about 3-5 hours to beat. In my opion stick to the ratchet and clank collection
This is why I picked PlayStation
Into the Nexus, 3 words that you will think about, 3 words that will click and snap in your head for the years to come. I say, as one person, that has played this series of games, every one of these games including "Full Frontal Assault" and "Size Matters" on the PSP which in my opinion were the most disappointing ones, agrees that this episode of the series is the best one since "Up your arsenal" on the PS2. Ok, to start off, the graphics, plot, and always funny "Capt. Qwark" like characters will keep you occupied for the time! visuals such as purple colored jungle vines look beautiful, as for the design of each planet, and the surrounding environments you encounter on the journey. Enemy A.I has been enhanced, and the aliens act to entertaining weapons "pitch-perfectly". Insomniac has delivered once again, and I am so happy that they didn't take the "Fuse/Resistance side of things". All in All, Insomniac is in my book legendary for making story-telling have a purpose in the video gaming genre and I wish to work in one of their offices some day.
A Perfect Epilogue to the Future Series
Although this game may be a bit short, do not underestimate it. This game is still a stellar adventure with all of your favorite returning characters. It acts as an epilogue to the future saga and does its job perfectly, tying up multiple loose ends from the past games. It is definitely shorter than A Crack in Time, but it is miles longer than Quest for Booty, and at $30, it is most assuredly a must-buy title, especially for Ratchet and Clank fans. Try not to be so critical and have fun!
Best new traditional Ratchet game!
Now its back to its traditional state, new weapons are awesome, and so does the bosses. I love it so much.
Not what I was hoping for
I got Nexus on the 12th. It is now the 14th and have allready Beaten it. I am not 100 % happy with it. It played more like Tools of Destruction. But it seemed too easy to beat and not as long as was Quest for Booty. Booty was a fun version I thought and hard enuff to make it interesting. But Nexus is more of a let down. It was fun but now it is over and I don't think I will want to play it again soon.
Can't Put It Down
I told myself to only play the nebulox and yerek, but I'm all the way to Igliack (sorry about spelling). I could not put this game down for the life of me. It's so fun, the graphics are amazing, sound is awesome, voice acting is superb. And the cutscenes are downright hilarious. So funny you'll wanna snapshot faces, or even rewind. The gameplay goes back to that traditional style we R&C fans love. I'll be sad when I finish this game. Insomniac delivered this final PS3 title!
What I Unfortunately Expected...
Upon hearing there was another Ratchet and Clank game about to be released, I really hoped I would be wrong in assuming it would be like the last few (not counting any of the future series.) I was not. From the first time you step the character of Ratchet, you get that cheaply made, PSP compatible feeling, even though this game is only for PS3. Slower framerate makes it flashy, not super smooth like " A Crack in Time." Of course, what tipped me off to this being a possibility was the price. No real release using the full force of PS3 graphics will list for $30. I don't hate this game. Its just that they cant seem to revisit the awesomeness of the "future" series that all of us R&C fans really want to see again. Some of the worlds are truly beautiful. Some of the challenges are really tricky, but again I feel its all for nothing if your main character seems to be cheaply animated within his own world. I don't understand how games that are now 6 to 7 years old could have such a better look and feel than our games now. I would even offer a challenge to someone to compare the much older "Up Your Arsenal" from the PS2 to this. Isn't technology advancement supposed to improve our gaming experience?
I have been a fan of the Ratchet and Clank series since it was created in 2002, and I was extremely disappointed with All 4 One and FFA, but now that Insomniac is returning to the normal style of R&C games, I'm super excited. Can't wait for the 12th!
Explanation for $30
Just so everyone knows that the reason that Into the Nexus is $30 is because it isn't a full game. It isn't like one mission or something like that it just isn't nearly as long as some of the classic games like Going Commando, Up Your Arsenal, Tools of Destruction, and A Crack in Time. The reason it is shorter than usual is because they are going all out on a PS4 R&C
