Everyone loves a good double act, and a great team can make for a an unforgettable dynamic. Just ask Morcambe and Wise... Riggs and Murtaugh... Tango and Cash.... and Ratchet & Clank. Delivering a mix of traditional platforming, badass weaponry and clever puzzles, Insomniac's Sony-exclusive franchise has gone from strength to strength: culminating in the finest iteration of the series so far with Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time. ShopTo are currently stocking the duo's latest adventure for £14.85, which is £5 cheaper than Simply Games (the nearest price rival).
Crack in Time concludes the story that Tools of Destruction started back in 2007, but improves upon almost every aspect of its predecessor. Whilst the platforming and awesome arsenal are still intact, Crack in Time introduces some seriously impressive puzzle sections where you'll use Clank's time control ability to circumvent some impressively involved obstacles. Far from being a gimmicky diversion, these segments are the highlight of the game- and it's great to see Clank step into the limelight after his lukewarm PSP spinoff.
The all-important boomsticks include standard shooter fare like the shotty and sniper rifle as well as the series' trademark outlandish armaments. Want to turn your foes into monkeys or freeze them with ice grenades? Crack in Time has you covered. In short, you're getting a great platformer with expansive levels, a solid shooter and a tricksy puzzle game in a single package- and at £14.99, it's an extremely attractive package indeed.
