Ratchet & Clank: QForce PS3 Review

I’ve been an on and off fan of the Ratchet & Clank games ever since the PlayStation 2 days, but have always fallen short of really getting stuck into what the games have to offer. I’ve casually played some single player and co-op on many of the titles from the franchise on PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3, from what I did play I know the games were pretty good too, but as I said, I never really got hooked on them.

So when this landed on my desk I at least had a passing fancy that it may be rather good, plus we (my girlfriend and I) had been looking for a few extra co-op friendly titles to play through on an evening.

The game comes from the developers at Insomniac Games, who have always had a warm place in my heart for their superb work on the original Spiro the Dragon trilogy for the PlayStation 1, that and the Resistance Trilogy, all standout games for their respective consoles and generations.

The Ratchet & Clank series has a large following of loyal fans too who will no doubt be looking at this spin-off title with eager eyes, yet where the series is normally known for its platforming action, Qforce makes a change for third-person shooter / tower defence, but has it worked?
