    Luscious looking levels that are bigger than ever, a wonderful range of new and old weapons, a multitude of gameplay styles, vehicles, freefalling, 2D retro action and a fully online multiplayer mode where you get to use those wonderful weapons against friends and strangers alike.

    The multiplayer is just the gravy on the best open-faced turkey sandwich of a game I've played in a long time. This is perfection.

    Absolutely a must-have title. It is one of the best games of the year. The gameplay is highly addictive and the cut scenes are hilarious- especially Captain Qwark's hand-drawn battle plans.
  4. It would be a tragedy if this wild romp got lost among this year's many blockbusters. The variety is fantastic.
  5. With a sublime mix of a humorous storyline, fantastic weaponry, some pure comedy moments, and some amazingly solid platforming sections, there's very little to criticise in Ratchet and Clank 3.
  6. Fitting a team-based shooter into a platformer might not seem like a great fit at first, but when taken as a total package, Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal is a truly great game.
  7. As with most 3D platformers, R&C3 is certainly not original ' but then again, the developers weren't trying to be groundbreaking.

If you like adventure games or platformers you will forever miss out if you don't play this game. I've played through it 10 times and completed it to 100% 3 times and it never got boring once. Best in the series far and away and that's saying something considering this is one of the premier series in gaming for the last 2 generations. Expand

    This game is an absolute gem. It's fun, and tells a great story with great humour. If you love platformers, action-adventure or 3rd personThis game is an absolute gem. It's fun, and tells a great story with great humour. If you love platformers, action-adventure or 3rd person shooters, you owe it to yourself to play this game. While veterans of the series might find it a little less challenging than the second and first games, newcomers will find lots of challenge in the main story, with challenge mode further adding replay value. speaking of replay value, this game has a ton of it, with titanium bolts to collect, skill points to achieve and weapons to upgrade, completionists will get around 25-40 hours with this game as more than one playthrough is required.

It's a super solid platformer that feels really nice to play and really satisfying to grind through. My only real criticism is that the non-platforming game modes aren't that great. Expand

The fact Ratchet and Clanks' tone hasn't changed since it's inception shows that "The Critics", are contradicting themselves. The scores for this and Jak 3 are hideously unbalanced and make no sense when you think about it. Buy Ratchet and Clank if you want to mindlessly blow stuff up, if you want a shred of subsatnce then do yourself a favour and invest in the Jak and Daxter triology. Expand
