Remember the QForce? Captain Qwark, in one of his smarter moments, first set up this plucky team of space heroes in Ratchet & Clank 3 on PlayStation 2. Originally, eight members were recruited into the force – including Ratchet and Clank themselves – to thwart the plans of the evil robotic genius, Dr Nefarious. Having achieved their aim, the QForce effectively disbanded… even if Captain Qwark still likes to think of himself as the team’s irreplaceable leader.
Now, fully retired and totally bored, Qwark wants nothing more than a little bit of space adventure from time to time. What he gets, instead, is a full-on alien invasion led by a mystery super villain – and for reasons unknown, it’s aimed squarely at himself. So: what do you do when three entire planets come under attack because someone, somewhere, wants to blast you to kingdom come? You call up Ratchet and Clank, of course, and resurrect the intergalactic QForce.
In this third-person platform adventure from Insomniac Games, it’s your job to explore the battlefield, build an impenetrable base and wipe out your incoming enemies. It’s fast, it’s furious and above all – it’s funny. What else would you expect from wise-cracking Ratchet and his little buddy Clank?
