    Luscious looking levels that are bigger than ever, a wonderful range of new and old weapons, a multitude of gameplay styles, vehicles, freefalling, 2D retro action and a fully online multiplayer mode where you get to use those wonderful weapons against friends and strangers alike.

    The multiplayer is just the gravy on the best open-faced turkey sandwich of a game I've played in a long time. This is perfection.

    Absolutely a must-have title. It is one of the best games of the year. The gameplay is highly addictive and the cut scenes are hilarious- especially Captain Qwark's hand-drawn battle plans.
  4. It would be a tragedy if this wild romp got lost among this year's many blockbusters. The variety is fantastic.
  5. With a sublime mix of a humorous storyline, fantastic weaponry, some pure comedy moments, and some amazingly solid platforming sections, there's very little to criticise in Ratchet and Clank 3.
  6. Fitting a team-based shooter into a platformer might not seem like a great fit at first, but when taken as a total package, Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal is a truly great game.
  7. As with most 3D platformers, R&C3 is certainly not original ' but then again, the developers weren't trying to be groundbreaking.

The person who wrote that it doesn't deserve above a 9 because it's a platformer has no idea of how good the game is. It's a genre-bending action game with platforming elements, but most importantly it's fun, deep, and has interesting characters. In my opinion, GTA doesn't deserve the high scores it gets and I'm very skeptical about those magazines that give those games 9s or 10s in graphics... or any other department really. And he shouldn't down on OPM, they write excellent reviews. This game is a 10, because it is without flaw. So stop complaining about the game being a "platformer" like that's a 4 letter word and just play it. Expand

If you like adventure games or platformers you will forever miss out if you don't play this game. I've played through it 10 times and completed it to 100% 3 times and it never got boring once. Best in the series far and away and that's saying something considering this is one of the premier series in gaming for the last 2 generations. Collapse

The fact Ratchet and Clanks' tone hasn't changed since it's inception shows that "The Critics", are contradicting themselves. The scores for this and Jak 3 are hideously unbalanced and make no sense when you think about it. Buy Ratchet and Clank if you want to mindlessly blow stuff up, if you want a shred of subsatnce then do yourself a favour and invest in the Jak and Daxter triology. Expand
