4 weeks after release and i finally nabbed it....that's probably the best part of this story.
I'll start with the good. The online handles fairly well. Very little lag, though i have a new and improved internet connection so that could be the culprit. I also want to state that the coop play is pretty well made. If i never played a ratchet title this game would have rocked. There lies the problem.
If you've played any of the previous 6 games, you will feel alienated and significantly hampered compared to even the first title in the series. No camera control, no leveling up weapons or health, no secondary secret items like the box buster or the magnetic wrench booster, NO FUCKING DASH BOOTS ARGHFUCKDAMNIT. The game has lost a huge number of its gameplay elements and i don't understand why. Even the story advancement lost a huge chunk of its awesomness. No side missions, no arena, no mini games. The whole game feels incomplete. I'm dissapointed greatly with this game. And considering how much of a fan i am, that was a difficult task to pull off. Good job insomniac.
