Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One - and all for multiplayer

Ratchet and Clank:All 4 One is the tenth R&C game released by Insomniac Games and Sony.
Unlike the previous installments, All 4 One was created as a multiplayer title mainly instead of
a single-player,third-person game with a multiplayer mode.




Gameplay:

All 4 One is a 4 person multiplayer,allowing players to try their hand at being Ratchet,Clank,
Captain Qwark or Dr.Nefarious. The game plays online or offline and allows extra players to
drop in and out of play.You can also play the game singleplayer, an AI partner appearing to help
you at at times.

The gameplay is the same as in previous games of the installment,with hack-n-slash
components provided by your trusty wrench, and third-person shooting with the ever-interesting
arsenal of guns provided.

The mutiplayer for the most part is quite smooth, however it takes place on a single screen
instead of split, which brings in certain frustrations if a member of your team falls behind.
Theres also the issue of your swingshot latching onto fellow players instead of the target,
which while initially hilarious can become annoying.



Game Map:

The game map lives up to those experienced in the earlier games. It's basically a linear path
that you have to take, but the active and interesting backgrounds allow for a feeling of openness.

The map has been slightly enlarged to compensate for 4 players at once, instead of the usual 1,
which makes the path less obvious at points if you're playing a single player game and
therefore a little bit frustrating when you find yourself in a dead end that you thought may
be an alternate route.

Story:

The storyline of All 4 One is interesting and engaging, if somewhat predictable. Nefarious is
attempting to take revenge on Ratchet,Clank and Qwark and his plans go slightly awry,
forcing him to take sides with the heroes to survive.




All 4 One is a great addition to the Ratchet and Clank series.

The only real problem I could see, aside from some elements that caused frustrations, was that there is apparently no Insomniac Museum.....an easter egg I greatly enjoyed in the previous titles.

8/10
