    Just like the super-satisfying weaponry, Rift Apart shoots on all cylinders to set a new bar for PS5. We’ve never had a game like this before. [Issue#3, p.120]

    Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart delivers a true next-gen experience thanks to its stunning visuals, haptic controls, and blazing-fast load times. Thrilling combat, expansive levels, and memorable characters make this PlayStation 5 exclusive an essential purchase.

    Some minor missed opportunities aside this Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart is an unforgettable, unbelievably gorgeous and downright addictive game and easily the best entry in the fan-favourite franchise. For all of its jaw-dropping visuals, industry-leading design and writing packed with heart and humour it succeeds on first and foremost being a really good time. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the most fun I've had with a DualSense in my hand and it stands as the best current reason to own a PS5.

    With over a dozen games in the long-running series, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart still manages to feel fresh and exciting, taking full advantage of the PlayStation 5 by delivering what, for many, may be their first taste at a definitive next-gen feeling game for the still-budding platform.

    Ratchet and Clank Rift Appart is the first great demonstration of what the next generation consoles can do. Their changes in dimensions and how they are integrated into the game are jaw-dropping and uniquely integrated into the gameplay. Pure lombax muscle for PS5.

    Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart is very important for the PS5 as it's a true showcase of what the hardware is capable of. The dynamic duo looks amazing in 4K, although it's the ray-tracing that really shines the most. Rivet is also an amazing addition to the cast, while the gameplay truly feels next-gen thanks to the DualSense and SSD. The game is rather short however which makes the 75 euro price tag stand out.

    There was a kind of magic in the early Ratchet & Clank games, and then a competence in the later lesser games. The frenetic onscreen chaos of wacky cartoon monsters, smashed crates, imaginative gunplay, and a swarm of bouncing coins was a true joy as we all discovered it twenty years ago. These days, it’s all on offer in a hundred different games. But without the magic or at least the competence, it’s just a flurry of sloppy colors and shapes, a whirlwind of ineffectual nostalgia, absent any innovation, creativity, confidence, or finesse. It took many years, but now that it’s being used to prop up a piece of hardware, Ratchet & Clank finally feels like the soulless corporate property it’s become.

From the opening segment to the final boss, it's just jam-packed with action and visual aesthetics. Controls and haptic feedback from the dualsense are a treat as almost every gun has a unique interaction and feel to it. Difficulty scaling is on point and the Zurkon Arena quests are just the right balance of fun and challenging especially on higher difficulties. Only downside I can see is the lack of variety on the boss designs as halfway through the game you'll just get a slightly tougher and maybe reskinned version of a previous boss. Expand

Voice acting is great for the most part, and the animations are nearly perfect. The only tiny things that bother me is the "decent" story, "decent" writing, and the fact that Ratchet feels slightly overshadowed by Rivet. I would've liked at least one more planet with Ratchet, considering that the game also feels barely shorter than most other Ratchet & Clank games. Other than those nitpicks, this is my personal GoTY and easily reaches my top 5 favorite games in the series. Expand
