    One of the first real reasons to buy PS5. This intergalactic adventure of famous series is full of great gameplay, inventive game design, gripping story, and great characters. It's a game for everyone who owns PS5. Actually, it’s a game for everyone.

    Rift Apart is a technical showcase, but it's also one of the finest 3D action platformers since Jak and Daxter. Insomniac consistently proves that the Ratchet and Clank series is a wellspring of potential, and they've delivered a complete experience that's as full of heart as it is surprises.

    Ratchet And Clank Rift Apart is an excellent game, very fun and sets the bar very high. With a nervous and devilishly effective gameplay and its sublime and bluffing universe of life, it is undoubtedly the one we were waiting for. The breathtaking rhythm between each stunning cinematic. A video game that offers the perfect blend between a Pixar and pure Ratchet. Too bad that Rivet does not come out more in its gameplay because it is a superb character.

    Funny, wonderfully lively, sublime and impossible to leave once embarked on the adventure, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart offers exactly what we expected: A delightful space journey through dimensions, suitable for the whole family.

    Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is an exceptional entry in the storied franchise. It doesn’t reinvent the series, but instead uses Insomniac's decades of experience to create a familiar and refined take on the universe. Newcomer Rivet is immediately relatable and a great addition to the wonderful cast. Modern technology like the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller and SSD enrich the experience of exploration and combat. Whether you’ve been following the series since 2002, or you’re just hopping in for the first time, Rift Apart is a must-play summer blockbuster.

    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.

    Without a shadow of doubt, this is now my favorite Ratchet and Clank game. Easily a 10/10 masterpiece created by Insomniac games.

I’m not one for kids games (so to speak), however, this game blew me away, I enjoyed it as much as sekiro, the last of us part 2 & ghost of Tsushima. It may be on par with breathe of the wild. It’s that good. Insomniac right now is turning into one of my favourite game developers alongside rockstar, platinum games and fromsoftware. 3 words, PLAY THIS GAME. Expand

    This game is quite simply the first game I ever played that is a perfect combination of amazing graphics, gameplay, characters, story andThis game is quite simply the first game I ever played that is a perfect combination of amazing graphics, gameplay, characters, story and technical innovations.

    Graphics : probably the best I’ve ever seen, and I’m not just talking from a technical point of view but also in terms of design. The different planets are so unique, colorful, vibrant, the level design is top notch., I’m playing in RT Performance mode, and the lightning and ray tracing are beautiful. The details on Ratchet’s face are mind blowing.

    Gameplay : this is a big one. The game blends melee combat, shooting (with many, fun and varied weapons), platforming (classic platforming, swinging, rail surfing, wall running, racing, flying, even catapulting), exploration, puzzle solving and even beat em up sections. Also, the photo mode is insane. I keep taking pictures left and right. The game is relatively short but you have quite a lot of collectibles to find and make you busy without being overwhelming. And it’s definitely a game that screams for a second playthrough.

    Characters and story : of course the story is not as deep and complex as The Witcher 3 or Naughty Dog games for example, but it is great for what it is. The characters are fun and adorable, even the baddies, Ratchet is a great hero, the ennemies are fun and diverse, the atmosphere is awesome. I also love the humour in the game.

    Technical innovation : this game could totally be marketed as a PS5 tech demo. It uses the Dual Sense controller perfectly and it makes the game very immersive. Also, the SSD is used to perfection and allows new gameplay possibilities like teleporting instantly inside of a map, which is very impressive and makes the experience truly next gen.

    In conclusion, this will probably be my game of the year. Can’t recommand it enough. Bravo Insomniac, can’t wait for a sequel !

This game is gorgeous with each and every captivating detail that perfectly captures what the power of the PS5 can do and it's insane. The technical capabilities such as the visual enhancement modes, sound mixing, haptic dualsense feedback, visual effects, and overall presentation is what shines throughout Ratchet and Clank's latest space adventure that made an exhilarating first impression on the PS5. There are bits of fun in terms of exploration and emotion when it comes to a story that grabs you in the action and it's quite memorable. Let's not forget that Rivet and Kit made a fantastic feminine duo that made this entry unique and they're very well written. This is arguably the best thing that ever happened to Ratchet and Clank since the glory days the duo had during the PS2-3 era and I applaud Insomniac Games for bringing back the feeling of being an adventurous hero.
