The series of action games and platforms, Ratchet & Clank, which began since the era of the PlayStation 2, has always been one of the most favorite series for me from Sony, despite the multiplicity of its parts and the disparity in the level between them, but since the generation of the PlayStation 4 and the series presents itself in an excellent way, and now in the first year of the PlayStation 5 we get the new part of it Which shows him many of the capabilities of the new Sony home device, especially in terms of graphics and speed of data transfer and download, did this have a reflection on the game and provide a different experience? Did we get a new unique Ratchet and Clank game that is worth playing and spending hours with? Today we find out the answer through our review of the game.
Let’s first talk about the story of the game, the story takes place here after the events of the story of the game Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus, where the characters of Ratchet and Clank have become national heroes in their homeland and today the fans celebrate them with a special party, but as usual, things do not go well with the appearance of the Doctor.” The evil Nevers, destroying the party and also stealing a weapon that Clank created as a gift for Ratchet and his idea is to travel between different dimensions and Clank wanted with this weapon to give Ratchet the opportunity to find Lumbacs between dimensions and search for his family, but Dr. Nevers steals this weapon and uses it to rule a dimension He becomes the emperor and from here the adventure begins with interdimensional play.
What is new in this part is the emergence of very wonderful main characters, and we are talking here about the character “Rift”, which is a character of Ratchet, but in another dimension and among the Lombax creatures, which is a female, and there is also the assistant robot “Kid”, which also represents the Clank character, but in the other dimension, these characters play a role Essentially the story and adds a lot to the story of the game, especially with the progress of events and your knowledge of the past and story of these characters. Through the game, we will play all four characters and certainly the most important role of the Ratchet and Rift characters, where action and adventure in stages and challenging the leaders, while we will also play with Clank characters and also Kid with stages that depend You have to solve puzzles to progress and learn more of the secrets of these characters, which gives a great variety to the style of play.
Since we are talking about a game exclusive to the PlayStation 5 and was developed for the device from the beginning, the most important question will be about the extent of the graphic quality provided by the game, especially since we are talking about a project from the famous Insomniac development team behind Spiderman games, which is undoubtedly one of the best development teams of Sony, especially in terms of effects. Visual, well if you want the short answer, the team presented us with a very strong game in terms of graphics, details of worlds and characters, effects of weapons and explosions, facing giant bosses and the diversity of environments are all very wonderful things, there is no longer a difference between watching a presentation to review the story and playing the game The same in terms of graphics, we clearly see the “fur” characters of Ratchet and Rift and the beautiful details with realistic facial movement when talking and dialogues. This game is very beautiful with its many colors and undoubtedly being a first year game for the PlayStation 5, it is very exciting to know what is coming.
The biggest shift in the game, which has been reviewed a lot since the game was revealed, may be the way the game uses the PlayStation 5’s SSD-type hard disk, which allows a great speed of data transfer, through the game’s presentations. The talk has always been focused on this point and that it will play an essential role in the game here in the way of transition Between dimensions very quickly and without loading periods. In fact, at first I thought that it was just an advertisement for the game, but after playing the game… I do not imagine myself returning to other games that do not offer this impressive speed by moving between worlds and dimensions, this game does not carry with it any Unbelievable download periods in a “disc” game, since the CD entered the gaming market and we are used to download periods, but this game completely cancels that, there are no longer any download periods at any time, the movement between worlds and dimensions within the game has become very fast and has become an important part of Play.
For example, sometimes you will have to move between two different dimensions of the same world by entering the dimensional portal, and here the matter is done very quickly despite the great difference in the design of the worlds, also some times and in the face of some leaders, the fight will move between different dimensions and different planets and the matter is done without you feeling it Once you enter the dimensional portal, you are in a whole new world without any download periods. This will play an important role in the game. For example, in the battlefield, you will find mobility portals, and by clicking on them, you will move from one place in the battlefield to another, and this makes you build strategies to confront the enemies and their large blocs at times.
Well, talking about the Ratchet and Clank game and now that we are playing the 16th game in this series we know exactly what we are going to get here, you play as one of the characters who uses normal strikes or weapon strikes to progress, as usual the game offers us a large number of weapons to buy And developing them, each weapon has its own style of confronting enemies, some of them are classic, and some carry completely new ideas, and there are developments for weapons by cracking crystals hidden in the game world, while buying weapons requires you to collect money by defeating enemies and breaking boxes, and this game is one of the games that rewards players a lot when they fight For longer playing hours and exploring areas and also completing side and additional missions to collect more coins and buy more super and expensive weapons as we approach the end of the game.
The gameplay system is never different between Ratchet and Rift characters, and the same weapons and upgrades that you buy for any of them will be available directly to the second character. What distinguishes the game a lot is the diversity in the style of play, the main idea of the game is action in the first place where you defeat enemies to advance and platforms play a less role In the Ratchet and Clank series of games, but if the majority of the gameplay is only for action, the matter will be monotonous, and therefore the game offers a lot of variety by going through some missions for the Clank and Kid characters, which depend on solving puzzles to progress, and there are also special missions for the character “Killch” which kills viruses inside devices and Computers to take advantage of them, and certainly there are jumping areas between the bars as well, which the series is famous for through its games.
The game offers with it very wonderful music and beautiful effects of weapon strikes as well as voice acting and dialogues, on the side of the acoustics, as is the case with the game graphics, the game offers with it a strong experience in this aspect, the story phase to play is not very long if you just want to finish the story phase, but this game progresses with it Lots of content. After you finish any planet, you have the option to go through the main story missions only and visit the main planets or do side missions that will help you very much to collect money and buy new weapons, and there are also a lot of treasures to collect that help you get additional costumes for the characters, and after finishing the game as well There is an additional missions phase, this game offers with it a very large content for fans of collecting and getting everything in games, you can imagine that when I finished the story phase only I had finished less than 60% of the total content of the game.
The game does not offer any multiplayer mode, and the reviewer version was missing the first day update, so there were no additional options such as playing the game at 60 frames, and also some technical errors appeared that the first day update will undoubtedly solve. Ratchet & Clank: Make Your Way is A very special experience on the PlayStation 5 that shows us the advantages of the device in a wonderful way and presents with it a beautiful adventure in its appearance and very enjoyable to play, with great content and an interesting story, as this is one of the most beautiful games of this series so far and undoubtedly deserves the experience.
The game offers Arabic dubbing for the voices of the characters in a very excellent way, a distinctive consistency between the voices of the characters and the Arabic voice acting for them in good interaction with the events and dialogues, Sony is improving a lot in this area with each new version of it.
