Ratchet And Clank Rift Apart Review Metacritic: Rift Apart is without a doubt one of the greatest games available for the PlayStation 5. From beginning to end, it provides an experience that is almost immaculate and prevents you from ever wanting Reviews to put down the controller. Apart from being a fantastic game in its own right, Rift Apart serves as one of the greatest examples of what the PlayStation 5 is capable of, and it continues to prove that Insomniac Games is one of the top developers in the world. Rift Apart is available now on PlayStation 4.
At its foundation, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart maintains a very similar structure to the other games in the series. Insomniac has always followed a very definite formula when it comes to this series, but it is the manner in which the company has built on that model in Rift Apart that is really amazing. The most noticeable manner in which this episode distinguishes itself is the frequent transitions between dimensions that you experience. This is a component of Rift Apart that Insomniac has spoken about a lot in the lead-up to the game’s release, but seeing it realized in-game surprised me much more than I expected. A large number of boss battles, platforming portions, and set-piece moments seem significantly more huge in scale than they have in the past because to the smooth switching between locations enabled by the PS5.
When it comes to those action-packed set-pieces, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart offers some mind-boggling on-rails portions that rival anything you’d see in a game like Uncharted or Insomniac’s other current project, Marvel’s Spider-Man. This is something I didn’t expect to see in a Ratchet & Clank game, but Rift Apart has some incredible cinematic moments that are hard to believe when you see them in action. One specific area, which included a massive robot, has remained in my memory for more than a week after I played the game. When I remark that Rift Apart has passages that are reminiscent of a Pixar film in video game form, I’m not making fun of the fact that I’m referring to a video game.
Perhaps most importantly, despite the fact that there have been well over a dozen entries in the whole franchise, Ratchet & Clank is regarded as a consistent series (as well as an animated feature under its belt). The critically acclaimed action/adventure series established Insomniac Games as a major player in the video game industry and launched a long-running PlayStation brand that shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. As the PlayStation 5 approaches its one-year anniversary, Insomniac must not only provide another well-received title, but also provide a technically impressive presentation for the newest Sony system.
According to the raving reviews of reviewers, it seems that Insomniac has outperformed itself on both counts. Rivet, a female lombax, is introduced in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and players will have the opportunity to inhabit her as well as the game’s veteran protagonist Ratchet. The mysterious wombat has captivated the hearts of reviewers, with some claiming that she is even better than Ratchet and the gang. It remains to be seen whether or if this critical success will result in a spin-off or direct sequel that follows her, but practically every major aspect of the film has gotten widespread appreciation. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart presently has a Metacritic score of 89, making it the second highest-rated PlayStation 5 exclusive, after Demon’s Souls, in the world. With that stated, here’s what some of the game’s reviewers had to say about it:
