The game does have a mild learning curve, but everything is accessible. Load times are covered with cut scenes, and while - if you just run through it - the levels can seem a little short, there is a lot to do and to explore rather than take a straight path through the game.
This is truly a magnificent animated 3D game. The characters come alive and everything - from the animations to the environments - is pure eye candy. The cut scenes were derived from in-game assets so you won't find a big disparity between live action and story point.
Sure, the game has what you would expect in terms of plot-driven dialogue, but it is the peripheral sounds that make this game truly fun to listen to.
Some of the puzzle types are familiar, and this is a platformer, so expect to fight, swing and bash crates and cartons - you know, the typical stuff. However, the score here is bumped way up for the way it is all presented. This is not a lackluster presentation, but rather a thoroughly enjoyable affair that never seems to slow down.
Tools of Destruction feels a bit short at times, but that is only when you are just driving through the game, going from point A to point B in the shortest route possible. When you take time to explore, you realize how expansive this game is, and how wonderfully designed. Insomniac did a great job with Resistance: Fall of Man, but Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction shows where its forte lays. This is the studio's second next-gen title and it is truly a terrific bit of gaming.
Insomniac has created its most intriguing and diverse universe yet. The story is strong and ends with closure and a cliffhanger (figure that one out), while load times rarely exist.9.5Graphics
"Fantastic" is what comes to mind when describing the sights you'll see. A rock-solid framerate, crazy effects, a terrific art design and environmental activity galore. Prettiest thing on the system.8.5Sound
The recurring V/O cast puts in another high-end (and hilarious) performance. The surround sound effects make the most of your receiver as well and the musical score fits well.9.5Gameplay
Insomniac has the Ratchet and Clank formula down pat and the balance and progression of the shooting/ platforming/ space battles has been refined to award-winning levels. Fun, fun, fun!9.0Lasting Appeal
You're looking at a good 12-15 hour quest the first time through, plus a challenge mode option, tons of upgradeable weapons, plenty of clandestine areas, secret skins, cheats, cinematics and more.9.4
