A Crack in Time became my favorite game in the series. Before it was Going Commando, which is now my second favorite. Such goods games. I hope Insomniac Burbank is willing to give Ratchet & Clank another go for the PlayStation 4. The two North Carolina games were pretty fun, but just don't hold a candle to the other games, even Deadlocked. <.<;

No, after ACiT came out, they said "Oh, this is going to be our last 60 FPS game. It's very taxing to make a game like that." Or something along those lines. <.<;

The first one was also structured a lot like Spyro was, to me, with the exception of the weapons and the lack of collect-a-thon. I actually like it the least cause I think the control wasn't quite up to snuff. They made it loads better in Going Commando, and perfected it in Up Your Arsenal. <.<

There's only two things that I like about their sequels, the first being that the action pauses when you select a weapon, and the second, is that you can strafe. In R&C 1 you can strafe but it's awkward as you have to levitate to do so.

In R&C 2 you can change that option, to pause the game or not, just like in the first game. But not sure about the other games...

I just finish the second game by the way... >.<

I got the HD collection a little while back, cause I'd played the first and I kinda wanted to try the others. The second one was cool, I liked it. The plot was really interesting, and the guns and stuff were pretty cool. But the third I didn't really like? It was alright but it was kinda just 'meh'. I liked it better when it was just Ratchet and Clank and the occasional random friend saving the universe, not the whole 'space cops' and Q Force thing. It just didn't feel like it was about Ratchet and Clank anymore? And the first two had lots of interesting character development, and then this one was just, nah. It was still fun to play, but I just wasn't as invested in them as the first two. It was kinda just 'lol I can turn people into ducks and blow **** up'.

I think the statement "nowhere near as good as the other ones" is very untrue.

I won't claim to be a huge fan of Ratchet & Clank, simply because I have not really dived into the franchise enough. The first game I really played was Tools of Destruction, as it was among the 10 or so games my dad randomly bought for my family when he bought our PS3 one Christmas. I played a fair bit into it, but for some reason, never completed it (and I still have it too!). I did think it was a fantastic game though.

I also played the demo of A Crack in Time, and thought it was amazing. Seems more fun than Tools of Destruction, too.

Then, more recently, I played through Q-Force ("Full Frontal Assault" to you Americans out there), as well as playing online in it. And I actually thought it was as much fun as the other two games.

And very recently, I played a bit of All 4 One with my best friend, and we had a blast (I believe my friend never played a Ratchet & Clank game before either). It's the only time I have played the game, but that's because I only intend to play it with friends (online or offline).

With all that being said, I think All 4 One and Q-Force are just as good as any other game in the franchise. I just think fans need to stop comparing them to the main games. Because they are spin-offs.

The main games are masterfully designed, single-player, epic action-adventure games.

Q-Force is a masterfully designed real time-strategy game that retains the mechanics of the main games, with a huge twist on the formula (except the Vita version. That is one of the worst examples of a port ever).

All 4 One is a masterfully designed co-op action game, that again, retains the main formula, with a huge twist.

If you look at All 4 One and Q-Force as grand single-player adventures, then they pale in comparison to the main games. But why would you look at them as grand single-player adventures? They are designed and marketed to be completely different experiences, and are not supposed to be compared to other games in the franchise, and honestly, are pretty innovative games within the franchise.

I'm not saying All 4 One and Q-Force should be seen as the best games. Everyone has their own favourite. But objectively speaking (I have no bias towards any game in the franchise, and I don't have a favourite as I haven't spent much time with the games), All 4 One and Q-Force are about as well made as any game in the main series. They're different, but certainly not inferior.

All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault aren't bad games. It's just that All 4 One is really meant to be played with friends, and I didn't have any back home who were into Ratchet & Clank, so I never picked the game up. <.<;

I am excited for Into the Nexus, though. ^.^

They're all good. The Future games are very similar to the PS2 ones, only with SUPER ULTRA MEGA 60 FPS 1080P GRAPHICZ1shift!!!1shift... oh, and more of an emphasis on the story than the previous games. But A Crack in Time is definitely my favorite of the series. <.<;

It's not all about the graphics you know? So there's no need to overrate. smilie I'm joking of course.
I personally think that Ratchet & Clank 1 compared to it's sequels feels more of a platformer, and doesn't have as much action as the rest.

A Crack in Time really brought back a lot of the platforming elements that had been "missing," so to speak. Especially with the Clank sections, which combined it with puzzle elements. But Ratchet got his share through the hoverboots and "spherical worlds" you could explore in the Breegus Nebula. It was nice to finally have a larger exploratory element in an Insomniac game again. <.<

What I would say about All 4 One is that while it has many endearig qualities as the others games, you just can't beat the originals. (Not to say All 4 One sucks because it obviously does not!)

Some more info on Into the Nexus: http://www.gametrailers.com/vi...us-field-report

My thoughts...

-I SAW THE DIMENSIONATOR! Is it making a return into the story? That'd be pretty cool. I had always imagined the Dimensionator finding its way back into the franchise, but more when it was getting ready to conclude.
-Arenas are back. Yayz. I always enjoyed them quite a bit.
-One quirky design thing I noted in the cutscenes. Vendra Prog has the same razor-like ridges on her back/shoulders as Dr. Nefarious. I'm not sure if it's just a subtle homage or supposed to hint at something bigger. It would be... strange if Nefarious ended up in the game somehow.
