Reminder that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart review embargo lifts tomorrow

Reviews don't matter to me on this one. It's a new Ratchet & Clank game. That's literally all I need.

ID: h0x71cu

I’d like to know it’s length. But yeah, Ratchet is Ratchet.

ID: h0xbp35

I’m assuming similar to other R&C games, what 10-12 hours?

ID: h0ymaaf

I am actually friends with one of the guys who got to early review it, and even has the platinum for it.

He said time from start to plat was about 26 hours.

ID: h0xa8ka

The only thing I want to hear in a review is something along the lines of “Best Ratchet game in a very long time”. Something like that. I def don’t want to hear anything like “very similar in length and style to 216’s R&C” because while that game is fine, it’s def not worth $70.

ID: h0ydnja

Eh, I loved 2016 R&C so I'll be glad if thats the case.

ID: h0ywa48

I want to hear that it's as good if not better than UYA or ACIT

I didn’t like the 2016 version. Hope this one will be better

ID: h0x7obs

I just wanna know how long it is. Hoping it isn’t short due to PS5 dev kits not being around for long.

ID: h0xl28h

That is the wrong question. You should ask "I just wanna know how fun it is". I played Valhalla for over 200 hours and had actual fun for just around 5-7 hours when I wasn't travelling from point A to point B or trying to open a door for the 100th time.

You do you. This is just my take. You shouldn't focus on a game's length. It will just force companies to create huge filler mediocre games which are way less expensive and time consuming than compact fun games.

ID: h0xm3em

That’s not how it worked, they worked on it before devkits were released with approximate software. If they were waiting for the devkit there would be no PS5 exclusives out right now.

I wish I could get a ps5 🙁

I'm going in blind, internet blackout begins tomorrow.

Can we ask mods to put a rule with no spoilers in the title of posts?

ID: h0yjl9k

There is already stuff I wish I had not seen on this game.

ID: h0xeh0f

Hell, I ain't even seen gameplay since...June 2020? I'm getting this eventually probably, in a deep sale or something.

70 is a bit steep for my liking in this one, enjoy y'all.

ID: h0yp16p

Over $100 in Australia, fucking hell....waiting for a sale as well or buy second hand.

Hard to believe this won't be great, but on principle I'm holding off ordering until I see the review consensus. I expect 8/10 or higher.

Landed a PS5 just in time for this, to the relief of my kids, who are big Ratchet fans.

6 : Anonymous2021/06/07 16:41 ID: h0xd7bt

I would just be there to see the praise. Still think Returnal deserves a 90+ metacritic score. Let's see where this goes. My body is so ready!

7 : Anonymous2021/06/07 14:25 ID: h0wu8tw

Already pre-ordered it. Considering about the spoiler, maybe just see the scores and make myself more hyped 🙂

ID: h0xqiv7

Same, only scores and maybe opinions about the dualsense features

8 : Anonymous2021/06/07 15:47 ID: h0x5i4a

Already have it pre-ordered and pre-installed. Of you are a PS5 early adopter this is kind of the game you've been waiting for. This is the true kick off of "next gen".

ID: h0xpnna

I’d say it started with Returnal. Housemarquee crushed it

ID: h0ybbdb

I loved Returnal and it has a few next-gen bells and whistles, but I'd say it's not quite breaking PS4 boundaries the way Ratchet seems like it will.

I’m still going to wait for reviews just to be sure but this game looks incredible I’m sure I’ll still pick it up

10 : Anonymous2021/06/07 14:38 ID: h0wvzt0

first game in a long time, that i dont need to see reviews to know this will be good. Giving reviews a week to breath cements that IMO.

ID: h0wwuua

Well with reviews coming out tomorrow that’s closer to 2 days before release, not seven. I also think it’s going to be good though.

11 : Anonymous2021/06/07 17:02 ID: h0xg9pd

Anything around 85 is expectable.

12 : Anonymous2021/06/07 14:22 ID: h0wtvig

What are we all thinking for Meta? I'm betting on a strong 90.

ID: h0wv1ne

Anywhere between 80-90 will satisfy me.

ID: h0wv0px


ID: h0wv4pk

2016 game was an 85 and this game looks much better so I'm going 90

ID: h0wwic3

Roughly the same, I'm expecting 88-92

ID: h0x6tu8
Slightly higher than Spider-Man 2018/Miles Morales, GoT, and Returnal. Equal to that of HZD
ID: h0wx2e9

Gonna be between 80 and 90 and people will call it disappointing even tho that means it's a great game by most metrics

13 : Anonymous2021/06/07 22:06 ID: h0ymtzu

91/100. Also massive shame it's nearly 20 dollars more expensive digital, I'll have to wait a few days for physical to arrive

Ratchet & Clank (2016, PS4)

Metascore 85 / User Score 84

15 : Anonymous2021/06/07 14:37 ID: h0wvwgn

I want to know how long a normal playthrough is going to be .... is it only 8-10hours or maybe 15?yy

16 : Anonymous2021/06/07 16:01 ID: h0x7ieo

They are literally overflowing with confidence on this one.

Bodes really well.

18 : Anonymous2021/06/07 20:44 ID: h0ybv56

I almost never pre-order games, but Insomniac is one of the exceptions I'll make, along with ND and Fromsoft. I can't think of the last time they made a bad game, and they seem really excited about this one.

19 : Anonymous2021/06/07 21:44 ID: h0yk0qa

I've never been a fan of the Ratchet and Clank/Jak and Daxte

Cooper type games. Ready to be whelmed.

Do we have a time? Simply saying "tomorrow" is not accounting for time zones. Tomorrow for me is in almost 6 hours.

This is one of those games where I already know it's a damn masterpiece and I don't have to worry about reviews. Been a fan since the first one on PS2. Insomniac makes great games.

ID: h0x5hgk

Even if it isn't a masterpiece (though I do think it will be) I know I'm going to have fun with it. That's all I really need to justify my pre-order.

I've had a lot of fun with 70-ish rated games and miserable experiences playing near unanimous GOTYs. I'd bet far more than $70 that this one will be a lot of fun.
