Heroes on the Move Impressions

Ratchet, Jak, and Sly Cooper team up in this first look at the motion-controlled platformer.

by

Ratchet and Clank may have starred in their best game yet last October in Crank in Time, but the upcoming Heroes on the Move could be their most unique. This cavalcade of mascot stars made its debut at Sony's press conference this year, and even though only a short gameplay clip was shown, this could be game to look out for, thanks to the combination of many of Sony's biggest stars with Move support.

The real headliner of this game is the characters who star in it. Dynamic duos from three popular franchises team up, with Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, and Sly Cooper and Bentley coming together to stop some sort of evil threat. Not much is known as to why these characters have been thrust together, but the cartoony aesthetics fit in well with their solo efforts from previous games. The Move support should also be interesting. The focus in the trailer was on combat, so it makes sense that Ratchet's wrench can be swung with Sony's new motion controller.

Stay tuned to GameSpot for more information on this upcoming release. We'll post our hands-on impressions when we get a chance to put these gaming stars through the test.

Well, they would have to change it a little since there is no move on the PSP

I just hope the game play is the same like since when has Jak had a hammer and ratchet not using a gun? Ratchet's bit looked like any other sword play game!? Also If Insomniac aren't in it....hmm... last time they weren't in a ratchet and clank game we got size matters -_-

It probably wont be a very good game, but at least Jak and Sly will finally be on the PS3.

everyone asking about Crash Bandicoot should note that these are PS2 heros. Crash is PS1

i would prefer each duo to get their own PS3 game, this looks like it will flop.

This could be awesome if it's an actual action game with levels and puzzles and such which require use of the appropriate hero in the right situation. If not...could end up being a big letdown. Lat's face it..I think what everyone wants to see (including myself), are new full-fledged Jak/Sly games. Why are Ratchet and Clank of Sony's PS2 platformer trifecta the only ones to receive some PS3 love???

I wanted a new Jak, Ratchet, or Sly game, but this game looks pretty good!

LOL, this is a kind of sony's Smash Bros? ;) I didn't like smash bros, I'll surely dislike this one too. Well, nice idea to use those names and characters.

these 3 duos are tha cornerstone of not only great games but great characters as well. bout time sony got with it and gave us some cool stuff especially for the move. now if they'd just give Sly Cooper and Jak and Daxter a ps3 outting I'd really be happy!

Hey, you've got a typo there. It's Jak, not Jax. Look at the title.
