Ratchet: Gladiator yes we’re going with that name because I’m so bloody Australian. Anyway let’s get into the review.
The game has solid shooting mechanics with cool new weapons. However, because of the focus on combat the game has no time to focus on platforming.
The game looks great in HD especially Ratchet’s spiffy new armour.
The game has a solid multiplayer mode and a decent campaign length.
The game has funny dialogue but also the villains are dark and sympathetic.
The game has good music and the voice actors are great.
When you press triangle in a ratchet game a quick select menu pops up. But in this game the quick select is two small and obtuse.
Ratchet: Gladiator is a solid game that feels like insomniac reaching the end of the rope on their one game a year schedule but it’s still good because of the talent of the development team. Ratchet: Gladiator gets 3 and a half out of five.
