  • Summary: After saving countless planets from dreadful doom and earning intergalactic mega-celebrity status in the process, Ratchet and Clank have taken some well-deserved RandR -- again.

An orphan of the universe, he has never known anything of his past, his family, orAfter saving countless planets from dreadful doom and earning intergalactic mega-celebrity status in the process, Ratchet and Clank have taken some well-deserved RandR -- again. Yet, Ratchet remains restless. An orphan of the universe, he has never known anything of his past, his family, or his Lombax origins. And no one, not even Clank, can fill that void. Unfortunately for Ratchet, someone else is equally interested in Ratchet's origins: Emperor Percival Tachyon. In his thirst for revenge, the vile tyrant of an ancient race of foul insect-like monsters called Cragmites has festered an age-old grudge and is bent on wiping the last-known Lombax off the universe. As Tachyon's forces ambush Ratchet and Clank in their home galaxy, our heroes realize they need to escape quickly to prevent its destruction. In a move of desperate irony, Ratchet and Clank steal Tachyon's imperial warship and embark upon an adventure bigger than any they've experienced- one that will not only unravel the mystery of the Lombaxes, but also test the very limits of their friendship.

    Quite simply, it's as perfect as a game can be - state of the art in every respect, from graphics and animation to sound, music and voice acting, to story and script, to level design and environment themes, to puzzles and action, to weapons and gadgets, to hidden items and lifespan-prolonging side missions and collectibles. Truly this is a game that has it all, and the definitive PlayStation 3 title so far.

    Tools of Destruction gives Sony something it desperately needs, a solid reason to actually own a PS3.
  3. ToD is every bit a Ratchet & Clank game, well, except for the missing multiplayer game, and a great start for the series on the PS3. This one should be in every PS3 owners collection.
  4. Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is the future of the Ratchet and Clank series. 100% fun and addictive, anyone who jumps into the adventure will be hooked.
  5. Ratchet & Clank Future isn't a revolution, but it is a marvelously kickass game that'll keep you entertained for hours as you plumb the depths of its huge levels, find creative ways to blow up its monsters and try to ferret out all its dozens of cleverly hidden items.
  6. The return of Ratchet & Clank couldn’t have arrived at a better time. Right now, we stand before one of the best PS3 games for the end of the year.

    While games like "Twilight Princess" entice players with familiar settings and gameplay elements, Tools Of Destruction force feeds them. [Dec 2007, p.104]

Tools of Destruction has massively improved graphics, much larger worlds and weapons, and perhaps the best story to date. Including some of the best characters, Tools of Destruction is potentially the best game in the series. Expand

Fantastic presentation and pacing makes this a great title. There's always more upgrades to keep you playing, and while the first play-through is a little on the easy side, the challenge mode unlocked after the first play-through is challenging, with upgraded weapons.

    Amazing gameplay, graphics and story. Xbox may have Bioshock, Halo and Crysis, but it will never have anything that can compete with this.

    The story of Ratchet and Clank continues with Tools of Destruction. For us platformer lovers this was a long time coming. Thank goodnessThe story of Ratchet and Clank continues with Tools of Destruction. For us platformer lovers this was a long time coming. Thank goodness Insomniac let the game release a week early so we wouldn't have to wait any longer. R&C once again has an intriguing story to follow up with the amazing game-play and production values. Besides dealing with an all-new bad guy, Ratchet through this new villain is learning new things about his past. While Clank is also a key part to the story, he begins to see tiny robots called Zoni, that only he can see. New awesome characters including Crunk and Rusty Pete lead the back-up in one of the most in-depth R&C stories yet. Oh and you can't forget about Quark. Expand

Still not a fan of the Clank sections. Also thought the devices where kind of of pointless with the exception of the Groovitron and Mr. Zurkon. The Groovitron for distracting enemies, and Mr. Zurkon for entertainment lol! Expand

    Another over-hyped PS3 game. Gameplay is broken and graphics are ugly in their own special way. I would only recommend this to little kids Another over-hyped PS3 game. Gameplay is broken and graphics are ugly in their own special way. I would only recommend this to little kids too young to realize that it's crap. Expand
