  1. Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty is a wonderfully enjoyable bite-sized helping of game goodness that will keep fans ticking over until the full release next year.
  2. All aspects of the game are refined and improved and the change from heavy shooter to more platforming gameplay is a welcomed and refreshing change.
  3. For those who loved the last game, it's a brilliant treat; a chance for one last blast while we wait for a full-blown sequel. For newcomers it's an inexpensive way to discover what they've been missing out on. [Oct 2008, p.88]
  4. Ratchet & Clank fans will be happy to answer this booty call...
  5. Whether you began busting up baddies as Ratchet on the PS2, or this is your first go-round with the lovable Lombax, you'll find QfB is one of the best titles to ever trek down the PSN path.

    It has a few hours of enjoyment and despite maybe being a little too short; you will want to go back over and over again.
  7. When the game was over I have to admit I wanted more, but not because I felt cheated; only because I had had such a great time I didn’t want it to end so soon.
  8. Four more hours of the classic TOD? Frankly, this is hard to fault. [Oct 2008, p.70]

The humor, the great characters, the voice acting and of course, the fun! It's a short adventure, but it's great if you just want some classic R&C action without having to commit to a 20 hour quest. Very highly recommended, to fans and newcomers alike. Full Review »

    Quest for Booty is a shallow extension of Tools of Destruction.

The core of what makes the Ratchet and Clank games great is still there and still I recommend this for any R&C fan. Where old R&C fans will be disappointed is there is very little gameplay beyond the first play through and said gameplay is very linear. There are almost no hidden collectibles besides a few weapon power-ups. Gone is the ability to revisit levels to find hidden bolts or earn skill points. Full Review »

    I agree with IGN's review of the game on this. Its a bitesized chunk of Ratchet gamplay bujt because its been shortend its missing something.I agree with IGN's review of the game on this. Its a bitesized chunk of Ratchet gamplay bujt because its been shortend its missing something. Its hard to pinpoint because in theory its got all the makings of a great ratchet game but somehow just doesn't get there. It could just be a lack of variety and charm that made the others great. If your a ratchet fan you'll still have a bit of fun but its just not as good Full Review »
