The show, which features abducted heroes fighting for their lives against a gruesome gang of deadly Exterminators, is run by a deranged media mogul named Gleeman Vox, who intends to use Ratchet and Clank as his next contestants. It doesn't take Vox long to realize that Ratchet is the most promising contestant the show has ever seen. Vox subjects our hero to a series of deadly battles and elaborate games of death, much to the delight of the show's enormous audience. To keep himself and his friends alive, Ratchet has no choice but to participate in the games and keep driving up the show's ratings with spectacular victories -- at least until our heroes can figure out a way to break free from Vox's control, the explosive Deadlock collar fastened to his neck, and bring the mighty Vox Network crashing down. Ratchet: Deadlocked features non-linear gameplay, allowing players greater freedom to choose their missions. In addition, all single-player levels will be available for multiplayer use. With much of the combat taking place in battlefields and arenas, gameplay will be more sports-oriented and will include announcer commentary. Featuring a new mission-structure approach, players will be rewarded with a constant progression of items such as weapons, armor and health. Players can take advantage of the new co-op gameplay functionality available throughout the game by choosing either single-player or multiplayer story mode. In addition, squad-based gameplay will enable players to demolish the competition by commandeering their allied combat bots through critical and strategic battles.… Expand

Sep 16, 2013Another strong entry in the Ratchet series. What little Deadlocked offers is great, but the functioning word is little. Gone is theAnother 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. 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
Feb 15, 2014Bad 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 butBad 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.… Expand
Apr 11, 2017Score 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 gameScore 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 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.… Expand
Mar 1, 2015I 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 ps3I 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 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
