    I've deflated my hype by reading the Metro review, which is a perfectly accurate description of what I thought of the PS4 game. Minus the super shiny graphics.

    Still might get it for those.

    Obviously.

    @UncleLou

    I read the Kotaku review which said it was a missed opportunity as the whole rift thing was not utilized in a particularly innovative way. Also its the same game as all the others. I can understand the complaints about being samey but that is similar to all CODs,Battlefields, Halos, etc. I personally love the R&C games just because they are arcadey and fun.

    Ditto.

    I've tried jumping in to R&C a few times but it's never really clicked for me sadly.

    Twitter going mental over Ratchet's nose textures! What a time to be alive.

    That is the only review I have read. (As I tend to agree with them closely on most genres).

    They often complain about games early in a generation that are flashy looking but lack depth. Infamous: Second Son, Order 1886 and Rise are examples from last gen. None of those aged particularly well but I did quite like Infamous at the time. Ratchet does sound far better than all of those though.

    I think it is an intentional stance they take with older IPs on new hardware. Similar to Edge they often rank interesting new above polished old. (Think they gave Returnal a 9). As a tired old gamer I actually like that approach.

    A 7 is not a bad score for them. A lot of really fun games tend to fall into their 7-8 range. With Ratchet I want a fun experience more than I want a revolutionary one.

    Also they have no interest in “value for money” or “price per hour” metrics. Their reviews are purely based on how much they liked a game. For example they criticised Alien Isolation for being too long and praised Miles Morales for being short as it meant the story pacing worked.

    To be fair to MetroGC they're one of the few sites who treated 5 as the average, not 7.

    Watched a youtuber play 2 hours of this, looks amazing. Never got into this franchise but I might be tempted to pick up the PS4 onw and give it a go.

    Right, first moan.. fidelity mode looks great but when it gets busy things get a bit jarring. Both performance and performance RT seem to set the resolution in the TV to 1080p and looks rather washed out for it.

    I'm sure normal performance mode should just drop the RT.

    It shouldnt look washed out, or do you mean blurry? A lower resolution may be a blurrier image, but not washed out.

    @richyroo , it's definitely a lot less vibrant. Was same effect in fortnite on 120fps mode

    Must admit, after playing for a little while in performance RT, I can't go back to fidelity mode.

    Still looks great and silky smooth now

    Have seen a few reviews mention it being a bit buggy. Anyone had any experience with this? Waiting on it to see if it needs to get a few patches

    15 minutes for me. Did you buy it on a different region account?

    @SolidSCB I did. I thought the unlock defaulted to local timezone irrespective of where you purchased it. Ah well, should be off to bed anyway!

    Looks bloody great. First game where Ray Tracing has made a really discernible difference to me on the console too.

    Yeah, it’s very, very pretty. Just an insanely clean image and looks like an animated movie, like Pixar does Uncharted.
    Looking forward to playing it this weekend.

    Loving this! Never played a ratchet and clank game before because I always thought they could never be as good as the 3D Mario games and the shooting looked a bit clumsy... well it still is I guess but taken as a complete package, this is really impressive and is a big leap from PS4 graphics.

    Wow - just played for a couple of hours - insane fun! Drop dead gorgeous game (playing on performance RT mode) and my two new favourite moves in gaming are the rift tether and the new dodge mechanic. Both feel just awesome...big smile on my face whenever I use the rift tether.

    Only gripes are I had a couple of bugs in the opening section where enemies were dormant instead of triggering the next part of a battle. In one case I had to restart the checkpoint to progress. Not game breaking at all, but a minor annoyance.
