If you think reading is for chumps check out the video review http://youtu.be/LhGGe6zpYcA
Ahh the sixth generation the ps2, the xbox and the GameCube. Even though I only owned one of those the best game to come out of that was Ratchet & Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal. I’ll leave you to find your socks that just blew off and I’ll continue with the review.
This game is a culmination of everything good about the ps2 series with even crazier guns and an expanded xp system for your guns and your health. Your guns are now able to level up to level 8 instead of level 3 which is a huge upgrade. This is aided by the fact by the weapons are somehow even more crazy. Another great thing is the galactic ranger missions which allow you to skydive into the game and kick ass in a expansive open ended environment.
This game is long also there are collectibles, new game plus and the sewer crystals. If you’re one of those arm chair generals who love killing your virtual ‘friends’ there is online multiplayer which has modes including CTF, DM, TDM and conquest. Which is a node based mode where you capture nodes to unlock vehicles and weapons. Then you mount an invasion on the opponents base.
The music is a ‘greatest hits’ collection of the music with great old music specifically Kerwan and Rilgar but the newmusic is great too. The main cast from Locked & Loaded returns the most prominent newcomer in the cast is Armin Shimerman who plays doctor nefarious.
This game I think has the best jokes and gags for the PS2 ratchet games. As mentioned the villain is great and he’s so great that he is the only main villain who returns throughout the series as the main villain. Speaking of characters all of the characters in this game have become fan favourites even if they didn’t debut in this game.
The menus are stock standard but when you go into the multiplayer menu even if you’re not going to play multiplayer watch the tutorial, it’s hilarious.
Ratchet and clank 3: up your arsenal is a gem pickup the ps2 version and play this game. I’ve never given 5 stars on any of these reviews but when I do it is the highest form of praise. Ratchet & Clank 3: up your arsenal is must buy and a game that has majorly changed my life.
