What little Deadlocked offers is great, but the functioning word is little. Gone is the platforming, gone are the minigames, gone are half the weapons and much more. Instead, you face a game built solely of Ratchet 3's 'Assault' minigames and Arenas, with a plot to tie it all together. While it's a fun outing, and a great deal at $9.99 USD, it lacks much of what made the earlier titles so enjoyable. The port is also riddled with issues, including severe framerate drops during heavy action, jittering during cutscenes, models clipping through the camera, through their armor, and even Vox's teeth clipping through his face at one point. Despite these issues, this is still the best way to play Deadlocked. However, if you're looking for a fun platformer, this is not the game you're looking for. Final Score 7.4/10… Full Review »

However, if you assume that, this Ratchet is entertaining and full of action. The storyline is not particularly brilliant, but there are jokes and funny situations that work well. It is always good to play this Ratchet years later, on PS3.… Full Review »

I think this is the worst game of the pretty successful ratchet & clank franchise. What I like about this franchise is the exploration and the funkiness of the games. However, this got a more serious tone with some funky and good cutscenes between planets. This game is brainless action packed to the point that I full throttle all the guns that I have without thinking. It is not for me, but it is still a decent game. Some people will have fun with brainless action packed shooting and it does its job well in that case. The multiplayer mode is still a nice addition.
So why do I give it a 3 instead of a 5-7?
Because it's one of the worst remastered ports I have ever seen. lags everywhere, hell the beginning cutscene was even lagging. It can get as worse as not even been able to finish a dread challenge because of it. That may never happen. It was even lagging so hard that sometimes it takes a different weapon without any input. It's even worse then some modern games before there day one patches.
For reference the mission that bother me the most is "vindicator tournament/dread challenge/higher ground".
I am happy that I got this game as a freebie and didn't buy this game.… Full Review »
