The solar system is your oyster in The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy, with exploration the heady seasoning and danger the spice. Add a pinch of Blaster ammo along with a splash of evil dictator’s fury and a feast of interplanetary adventure awaits on PS3.
You can be sure that the sense of scale, of colourful new horizons being just beyond the next star cluster, is just as huge in each game. When you land your starship you’ll be confronted with a distinctive environment full of intriguing pathways to unknown destinations, strange threats, hallowed golden bolts – to spend in special shops – and, better yet, an incredible new weapon or gadget.
Yes, your ingenuity and quick thinking is required to solve puzzles and crack tricky defences, but with a crazily destructive weapon primed, you’ll be unstoppable. When you get your hands on the Glove of Doom, with its miniature, search-and-destroy robots, weapons in other games will just seem a little dull.
In the second and third instalments, weapons can be upgraded for even more devastation. That means the Suck Cannon vacuums up even more creatures to be fired as living, squishy missiles. The Morph-O-Ray, meanwhile, can turn bigger enemies into something a little more manageable: dancing chickens. Play The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy and discharge some humour and imagination with every shot.
