Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One Review | Still Going Strong

Platforms: PS3
Developer: Insomniac Games
Publisher: Sony

Co-op multiplayer Ratchet & Clank. The series has been consistently fantastic without it, but we’re always keen to watch a great game grow. But with co-op, we knew there would be concessions to the game we know and love. Would this sour the overall experience though? In short: no, this is still a great Ratchet game, even as a single-player experience.

If you’d prefer to play through the game alone (also the best way to build up your arsenal), just choose a character and get going. With Ratchet, Clank, Captain Quark and Dr. Nefarious all working together against a common enemy, you can choose to play as any of the four. An AI partner follows you around to help in gunfights and co-op tasks if you’re flying solo. Co-op partners, either local or online can drop in or drop out at any time, which allows you to progress through the game as you choose.

Co-op actions usually revolve around the Vac-U gun, which is also very handy for sucking up crates of bolts. It also pulls switches or catches power orbs that can be fired into sockets. This gadget also picks up players to fire them across large gaps, before the others use a snappy tether to zip over after them. Another co-op moment involves dragging a light-emitting pod through a dark forest together; a time limit and ally-munching plants make teamwork essential here. The multi-purpose vacuum appliance can also be used to revive players. The AI partner is unpredictable; they’re either perfectly in-sync with what you want them to do, or completely brain-dead and refusing to acknowledge the task at hand. In a firefight though, they’re immensely reliable.
