    If it weren't for the game's generic gameplay and lack of identity, Deadlocked would've been a blast. However, its 3rd person controls are impressive, the visuals are great, and as usual, Ratchet's arsenal kicks ass.

    I love this series and really liked the game, but I feel they're going in the wrong direction. Cutting down on the platforming, which the other games did better than any other game, is a big mistake. Also, cutting down the scale of the story makes the game feel more like an add-on than a sequel. Still a fun game that people should play, but if you're new to the series you should I love this series and really liked the game, but I feel they're going in the wrong direction.

    Slow start on this one but a great finish. The intro levels are far too easy and I was disappointed that there were no cheat codes available. Some of us like to have the morph gun from the start. Just cause I cheat dosn't mean I'm not a real gamer. I like the idea of the gun mods.

But most of that could be over looked by playing the final 2 hours of the game. Things get really fun once you have all the weapons. Watching those swarmers run into an electrofied force field is just fun. Expand

  1. It just doesn't quite live up to the standards set up by its predecessors. [Dec 2005, p.90]
  2. It's every bit as enjoyable as you would hope, too. Of course, if you are into deathmatching, Ratchet's online presence once again packs a wallop. [Nov 2005, p.160]
  3. There's a sense that Insomniac wanted to go out with a quick, clean fourth installment without too much hassle and strain. [Nov p.78]
