    Another strong entry in the Ratchet series. 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.

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 Expand

    I agree with jakerfv. This is the worst port i'v ever seen. This Ratchet game is my favorite out of the entire series, but this port onto ps3 makes it UNPLAYABLE! do NOT buy this game. In 2 player, the frame rate drops when you fire certain weapons. The game freezes for half a second almost every time you change weapon. All the audio and cut-scenes are screed up. All of the menus freeze asI agree with jakerfv. This is the worst port i'v ever seen.

All of the menus freeze as you scroll through the tabs and stuff. makes buying and upgrading weapons a nightmare. I was really looking forward to this HD remake, but now i am quite sad. It is a crime that this game has been killed like this. Expand

    Bad port, although it's not the worst I have ever seen. Deadlocked is a great game, the PS3 version on the other hand, has many issues but nothing game-breaking. Some of the issues are announcers bugging out and not talking (aside from scripted events) or they just repeat lines over and over. Cutscenes glitch up involving seeing through characters, eyeballs losing eye color and turningBad port, although it's not the worst I have ever seen. Deadlocked is a great game, the PS3 version on the other hand, has many issues but nothing game-breaking. Some of the issues are announcers bugging out and not talking (aside from scripted events) or they just repeat lines over and over. Cutscenes glitch up involving seeing through characters, eyeballs losing eye color and turning complete white, and sometimes the camera stutters and pans (all during a cutscene, not in game). There are also the slowdowns and stuttering, when enemies build up the game slows down. Thankfully, it isn't as bad but it can happen. The stuttering is very annoying, sometimes in the heat of battle when switching between weapons, it freezes for half a second. It doesn't happen consistently during a large fight but it can get annoying. Again, nothing game breaking for the most part, I only died once so far (I just beat the crusader tournament) due to the slowdowns. I got the game with my new copy of Full Frontal Assault. I think it was given because the game was delayed in North America, so buyer beware if you plan on getting it through Full Frontal Assault, I am not entirely sure about the details. I would only get this version if you are a fan that wants to replay the game with trophies and in widescreen, but 10USD is a bit too much for how botched the port is, considering that you can get the original for less and it will have less issues.

    Score 3/10 Decent game, but still the worst of the franchise. Having a bad port makes this case even worse.

    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

    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.
