Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus review: abbreviated action

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus review: abbreviated action

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus finally returns to the series' roots. As a result, it hews closely to the formula first forged in the PlayStation 2 era. But a few smart moves keep it from feeling redundant and makes for a finely-tuned distillation of everything that made the series so engaging and worthy of its longevity.

Most importantly, this is a very abbreviated Ratchet experience. Everything has been streamlined to make Nexus hit the ground running. There's very little in the way of tutorial segments, apparently assuming that most people interested have played a Ratchet game before. The various worlds introduce new mechanics at a steady clip, but move along from one setting to the next quickly enough to maintain a sense of visual variety.

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault adds tower defense 'twist'

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault adds tower defense 'twist'

The lovable furry-robot team are returning in Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault. While this latest iteration promises to return the franchise to the classic gameplay the franchise is known for, Insomniac is adding a new twist to the formula. On top of the arsenal-heavy shooting and platforming, Full Frontal will introduce a tower defense element.

You'll be building your defenses based on the clever tools that the series is known for, and racing around to fend off enemies on your own as well. You can choose between playing Ratchet, Clank, or Captain Qwark, fending off the alien army across five different levels.
