    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.

I doI feel like this game is a true next gen experience and as a long time ratchet and clank fan it really is a good game for the series. I do miss some of that edginess the original games have but in these times everything is so upside down that the fact this game is as good as it is a huge win for Sony and longtime ratchet and clank fans!!!! I’m hoping people remember why we play video games to have fun not to be force fed a message. Expand

Old school fans, like myself, will take problem with the extreme kid-centric nature of the game's writing. Many characters go through personal troubles in a very teenage-angst kind of "oh gosh oh gee I just don't know if I can do it" kind of way" which can, very often, outstay its welcome. The humour of the originals won't be found in this but, the game is much more "quirky" than it is comedic. But the game exudes so much charm, endless detail and love for the franchise and the pastime of videogames itself that it can coast on that alone. Although I really do wish they would return to the dry wit of my childhood.

    The presentation is incredible, the gameplay is easily the best it's ever been and it made me excited for the genre of video games itself. It actually made me feel (a bit) like a kid game. Highly recommended.
