Ratchet & Clank: Tools Of Destruction

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools Of Destruction (known as Ratchet & Clank: Tools Of Destruction in PAL regions, Tools of Destruction or Ratchet & Clank 6 for short) is a platform and shooter genre video game exclusively for PlayStation 3.

Features

Tools of Destruction is like the basic game play found in previous Ratchet & Clank games, which player controls Ratchet most of the time, with some sections using Clank, as they explore a numbers of worlds in completing missions, using Ratchet’s wrench and other exotic weapons gained during the course. Besides weapons gained, player can collect Raritanium crystals and use them to upgrade the weapon in additional ways beyond the experience path; weapon improvements are presented in a tree-like structure and require that all previous upgrades be obtained for that weapon first before later upgrades can be purchased. Besides weapons, there are also objects known as ‘devices’ that provide beneficial affect to the player. Armour can be bought from an armour vendor on certain planet. At times, the player will control Clank in a mode similar to previous games, using robotic creatures called Zoni to fight foes, remove debris or reconstruct bridges, and to power devices in the level. Clank possesses the ability to slow down time as well during these sections, allowing him, for example, to make his way under a rapidly closing door. Moreover, it also features an arena with several challenges beyond the main game play. This series also features lip-synced dialogue between the characters during game play, out of cut scenes.

Review Summary

Rachet & Clank: Tools of destruction is a PS 3game about a character named Rachet who is the last of the lombax. The shooting and platforming in the game is strong. Moreover, this game is installed with minigames and gameplay mechanics. Lombax is a race of catlike creatures. Emperor Percival Tachyon is a big-headed alien who is the villain in this game. He has a Napoleonic complex. He apparently doesn’t like Lombax. Therefore he planned to get rid of Rachet. In this case, he learned that lombax has a secret but Rachet himself doesn’t know that he is a Lombax. Clank is Rachet’s sidekick robot who has been interacting with some tiny aliens called the Zoni which he only can see. In the game, Rachet is provided with various weapons such as grenades, rockets, spikes, blasters, a whip, bouncing saw blades, and more. The game dialogues are quite hilarious. The advantages of this game are that the shooting and plat forming are as exciting as ever, various weapons, great colourful visuals and firm controls. While the disadvantages are that there are some pointless gameplay mechanics, the game is lack of identity and it is too easy. Hence, viewers commented that the story of the game is not that entertaining and the ending is unsatisfactory.
