    Can't stop playing, can't stop laughing

    Alright, it's not RC2. Let's get that out of the way. There's not a lot of platforming. Fine. But man, I can't put the game down for more than a few minutes. I'm calling in sick from work! Weapons are awesome, acti... Read Full Review

    No clank, No good

    This game has to be the worst in the series as of yet. With simple gameplay and a very easy game it makes you wonder what Insomniac were thinking.I can't say this game is all bad as it has the weapons and normal gameplay... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Ratchet: Deadlocked

  • Review Score:8.4

    While not as engaging as the previous installments, this game is still a lot of fun.

    Ratchet Deadlocked has a strikingly interesting premise that offers its fair share of action, but there's one thing missing--Clank! But Clank's absence from Ratchet isn't that bad (he's still in the game, just not with R... Read Full Review

    WHER THE HELL IS CLANK

    Insomniac can't seem to figure out if less is more or more is less. Such is the hallmark of a developer with a lot of creative ideas on their hands and neither enough development time nor the ability to implement them al... Read Full Review

    good but not nearly as good as the other games with Clank in them.

    Where is Clank? In this game clank is not a playable character. He dosen't even help Ratchet with the Heli pack and thruster pack. Apart from this basically all of the platforming elements of the series are gone instead... Read Full Review

    Dissapointment, yet it's still okay.

    What a disappointment. I've been playing all the R and C games, and this ones the worst. I'll start with the good stuff first. There are two new vehicles, but you can figure them out since I don't want to spoil it. Th... Read Full Review

    Way too easy!

    This game is the worst one in the series. Due to the fact that it is too easy, the game becomes painfully short and boring after the first hour or so. The comedy in this game is relatively good. Though the only amazing t... Read Full Review

    This isn't one of my favorites of the series but it's still fun.

    I started this game and withing about 30-minutes I pretty much hated it. It is SO drastically different in style than the others in the series that I wasn't sure what to think. Yet, I stuck to it and found that I actua... Read Full Review

    Ratchet and Cl- wait... Ratchet Deadlocked Review. Why did they take Clank outta the title?

    First off, Insomniac tainted the formula of putting Clank's name in the title. Anyways, the game has been dumbed down on the platforming (sorry platformers) and more focused on shooting. Ratchet and Clank pros will be d... Read Full Review

    One of the highest quality games ever produced.

    I am a huge fan of the Ratchet and Clank series, and would probably rate Up Your Arsenal as my favorite game of all time. That being said, this addition to the series is a good one, but not the best. The production valu... Read Full Review

    It's more darker but the Ratchet we know is excellent.

    The closely finale of the series is darker and more aggressive with swearing. There's not going to be blood or refrences of sex. And this game is still great for those at are giantic Ratchet & Clank fans. Graphics to the... Read Full Review

    Best in series

    Ratchet Deadlocked for the Ps2 the 4th game in the series is good. In this installment of the series the game play is different. It plays like a third person shooter. It doesn’t have that much platforming elements to i... Read Full Review
