Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty (2008, Game, PS3) – 8/10 review

Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty (2008)

Ratchet tries to find Clank but the nefarious Rusty Pete and assorted bits of assorted pirates keep making things difficult.

8/10

More of the same and plenty of fun. While it does feel like it’s not quite finished (voices don’t always play at the correct volume, have long pauses between them and some of the camera angles are not quite right) it still boasts all the same strengths (super graphics, funny dialogue) and weaknesses (combat needs a lock-on) as the parent game. There are some particularly impressive Pythor shadows in Morrow Caverns and I love the little heliogrubs (fortunately, none were harmed in the making of the game). There is a significant area of improvement with the expansion of wrench abilities. You can pick things up and magnetically manipulate objects though scenarios involving either tend to be a little too simple and, unlike the parent game, there’s no reason to replay the adventure.

This game contains mild melee violence, mild projectile violence, mild fantasy violence.

Classified 7+ by PEGI. The game is only suitable for persons who have reached the age of 7 or over.
