    Quest for Booty is not exactly a game by itself; it is more a bridge between Tools of Destruction and A Crack in Time. It has recycled gameplay and weapons from the last game in the series, and is not shy to admit it. Still, it is a great game and a cheap test-drive for those who are on the fence about the Ratchet & Clank series. It is fun, the graphics are colorful and the soundtrack is brilliant (with many Pirates of the Caribbean tweaked tracks). And the pirate theme really works for the series. Progression is pretty different from the series' standards: there is nothing to buy, nothing to evolve: you just go through the game enjoying the story and getting answers on the mysterious end of Tools of Destruction. And in the end you get a nice surprise. Quest for Booty feels more like an extension of the previous game than a game by itself, but it's still a very fun and well-built experience. Expand

    Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty is a really good game. Its no-dout worth the price, but its really short, and feels more like an expation for TOD then a full game. But never the less if your a R&C fan, you need to buy this game.

    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 Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Despite being one of the shortest games I've ever played, Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty is very amazing and amusing. It has incredible graphics, great game play and a funny and interesting plot. But still. Too short, so that's why I'm giving it 8 :) Expand

    Being a great follower of the series, I was anxious to see where Insomniac were taking the R&C series this time. However, this game just felt like a money grabbing exercise from them - giving users just another Ratchet and Clank game. There really seems to be nothing new here. This may have been released as an expansion level to 'Tools of Destruction', maybe then it would have gone down better. As a standalone title, this just seems to be an average shovel-load of a half-hearted Ratchet and Clank experience. Expand

    Ratchet & clank: quest for booty is great, really great, but...it's practically the same as its predecessor, and its a bit worse than its predecessor too. Its still a really good game with nice graphics, a comedic script and unique 3rd-person shooter/plat-former/action-adventure/(very loosely) roll playing game play. I want to give it a 9, but its not quite good enough.

    Nothing particularly wrong with it but it suffers terribly from its length, as most games like this do. It is merely an add on for Tools of Destruction, a masterpiece, so it was going up against tough competition. If only it had been a serious and long game, then they may have been able to integrate better and newer mechanics than stick with the old formula.

    The game is much too short to be one of those high grade games. There isn't even collectible items, and levelling up items is not as good as in the other ratchet and clank games, they all start at level three, so it isn't as good. This game mostly felt like a filler between games, the only point of me playing it is to not miss the story. A better idea would be to make either Tools of Destruction longer, or Crack in time longer. At least the game is only fifteen dollars, still, it does feel a bit overpriced. Since you can switch difficulties in game, you could beat the game on your first try, and replayability would be limited; I finished half the game on hard already, so the difficulty could be higher as well in the game. Overall, 6.3/10. Collapse

    This was a really good game even tho it was short and it was a good kinda transition between tools of destruction and a crack in time the reason why I gave it a 8 out of 10 is because lots of the parts were hard to see even with the brightness turned right up

    Sometimes its nice to play threw a simple but well crafted game. The idea of releasing a demi ratchet and clank game at first scared me off however after experiencing Quest for Booty there is little doubt that this was an excellent instalment in the games franchise.
    Short but sweet, Quest for Booty is a step back from the grandness of a normal Ratchet and Clank game, yet retains all of
    the bolt juicy joy that the games are so famous for. Over a short campaign you will re-join Ratchet, now alone after the mysterious Zoni abduct Clank in the conclusion of Tools of Destruction. As well as picking up on the story, the game also carries on a lot of the previous games mechanics, graphics and general feel. This is by no means a new Ratchet and Clank experience but a 1.2 version of the previous game. This is all right as the style and story of the game is different enough, to make sure it in now way feels a drag. There are however a few positive changes mainly involving Ratchet who now has an upgraded wrench and weapons. Not having clank is a major system shock at first however you quickly make do as your plunder into your pirate filled adventure.
    Oh yes I forgot, this game is Ratchet Vs Ghost Pirates! Surely that IP is enough to get you to out to the shops to pick up such a ridiculous yet entertaining combo of characters.
    There’s little more that needs to be said about this game, in no way is it some kind of major leap forward for the franchise but it doesn’t want to be and neither does it try. Insomniac have delivered a solid instalment, which keeps the thirst for Lombax fuelled adventure parched long enough to get to the next full on Ratchet AND Clank game.

    Quest for Booty is a bite sized installment, lasting around two and a half hours. Amusingly enough, it cost me just as much as the two games surrounding it, which are considerably longer and more wholesome experiences. Maybe it's because they're part of the PS3 'Essentials' range, however it leaves me somewhat unsatisfied. Quest for Booty has little variety, the entire game is based on a single planet with either dark caverns, an island or pirate ships. Pick one. The weapons are simply recycled from Tools of Destruction, start at V3 and feature no upgrade component (although their final upgrades are hidden in the world for you to find). The game offers 3 levels of difficulty, but unlike Ratchet 2's difficulty, imo the finest difficulty in the game thus far, Quest for Booty's 'Hard' difficulty is akin to Deadlocked's in that it simply turns enemies into damage sinks and their attacks into nuclear explosions. On the upside, the short length of the game means that there isn't time for weapons to lose their relevance, staying formidable right to the end. Overall, Quest for Booty brings nothing new to the table, and is rather over priced for what it is, my final score reflects that, however that aside, it doesn't do too much wrong, and I must stress, despite it's overall scores from myself an others, IT ISN'T A BAD GAME. It's just short, overpriced and more of the same. It's also worth playing for plot reasons, as it continues on from Tools of Destruction and leads into A Crack In Time. Buy this, but buy it cheap. Final Score 6.7/10 Expand

    A bite sized adventure that plays a lot like Tools of Destruction, only this game is more puzzle and platforming based rather than explosive action. The game is fun; however, there is little to no replay value and the game's length doesn't help that either.

    Quest for Booty has been designed as a quick four-hour experience and it feels shortchanged because of it. Though its shooting and platforming sequences are fun and of high production, it still seems like there's something missing.
  2. 75
    Quest for Booty's a fine addition to the Ratchet & Clank world, but what should've been a love letter to fans ends up serving better as a taste of what outsiders are missing -- and, as a fan, that makes me just a little bit sad.
  3. Though Quest for Booty, again, isn't a bad game, it's not a good Ratchet game, and in the end that makes for a slightly disappointing and possibly even overpriced offering. With zero replay value and only a few new tricks, this Quest isn't worth taking.
