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

    A very very Short game, can be beaten in about 2 hours. Still fairly fun, It doesn't lack in the R&C experience besides being so short.

    Nothing particularly wrong with it but it suffers terribly from its length, as most games like this do. It is merely an add on for Tools ofNothing particularly wrong with it but it suffers terribly from its length, as most games like this do. It is merely an add on for Tools of Destruction, a masterpiece, so it was going up against tough competition. If only it had been a serious and long game, then they may have been able to integrate better and newer mechanics than stick with the old formula. Expand

    I don't shocked, that game was standalone game of Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction. This is harder that original.

    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.
