Ratchet's desperate search for Clank resumes with a bang as he finds himself engulfed in ship-board combat -- only to be cast adrift and washed up on the shores of a remote island on the planet Merdegraw. Our Lombax hero must overcome life-threatening challenges, encounter hostile new alien races and even form an allegiance with dreaded Captain Slag’s first mate, Rusty Pete. All in the pursuit of clues that lead Ratchet to the treasure of Captain Angstrom Darkwater, Slag's former commander and keeper of the only known link to the mysterious Zoni: the Fulcrum Star. Push, pull, and manipulate objects as you solve various puzzles using Ratchet's new wrench. New Light/Dark gameplay: Illuminate dark areas and use your wits to survive encounters with enemies that live in the dark. New Pirate Puzzles: Mix brew, manipulate shadows, and play tunes to find hidden booty. [SCEA] Expand

    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.

    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.
  3. Ratchet and Clank fans should really find themselves loving everything about Quest For Booty. At $15, this is one of the best bang-for-your-buck deals out there for all gamers.
  4. Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty is fresh and funny entertainment that the whole family can enjoy this summer. Insomniac Games achieved an action spectacle full of acrobatic jumps and simple puzzle solving. Three hours of adventures at its best for an adequate price.
  5. A solid, well written game that's bit on the production values. It's a little on the short side but it does serve as a nice warm up for the next game.
  6. If you haven't played a Ratchet and Clank game before, this is certainly a good place to start since it has a very short play time.
  7. Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty is a vanilla ice cream cone. It's snack-sized, relatively cheap, and is nice on a lazy summer day. But at some point, you'll probably wish it was part of a float or a banana split.

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. Expand

Thats what a lot of people have a problem with; its too short. Its not an entire R&C game, its simply a small side-tale about the Zoni and Clank's mysterious disappearance. Thats it. Any fan of the R&C games, or even Tools of Destruction alone, will like this game. Just dont sit down expecting an adventure thats gonna last forever cause if you know what you're in for then there is absolutely nothing wrong with Quest for Booty. Expand

It's a sequel that comes after Tools of Destruction and before A Crack In Time. It controls smoothly, the platforming is great, the story is great, the voice acting is great, and the puzzles are great, and you could even get it for free with Nexus.

    Rating 8.1/10. If you're a die hard R&C fan, it may not seem to be worth all of what it gets, but it's still a great game, get it on the PSN store or get it if you get the digital offer that comes with Nexus.

    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 recycledQuest 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

If youOne of the best games in the PSN, fun gameplay, astounding visuals, and got some good atmosphere. Its gameplay has a lot of puzzles. If you are new to the series, I'd totally recommend it to you!
    But on the other hand, if you are a R&C series, this game won't live up to your expectations, it is a short and easy four-hours experience with a copy-paste gameplay from Tools of Destruction with nothing after completing the story and no side-quests. Gets 7/10.

    Without question the worst-ever installment of the series. Beyond the astonishing brevity of the game, large sections of the game are playedWithout question the worst-ever installment of the series. Beyond the astonishing brevity of the game, large sections of the game are played almost completely in the dark, where you can't see anything at all.

    The story is pointless, the weapons are utterly boilerplate for a Ratchet game (and almost completely generic even for any other game), it has almost no humor or charm, and again, the object manipulation and "light/dark" gameplay is so tedious and awful, it ruins the game. The last level prior to the final battle is one of the worst levels I've ever seen, in more than 25 years of gaming.

    It's awful. Just awful, from top to bottom. I loved the first five games, but this one has no redeeming value at all. Between this, and the equally awful Resistance 2, I'm rapidly losing faith in Insomniac. I really don't want to - I loved Ratchet, and I really hope that a Crack in Time just pretends this pile of garbage never existed at all.
