For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

What do these ratings mean?

Could it be any better than the orginal???

Oh Lord... Thank you, it is!

If you didn't buy the first one, go out, buy it, then get this one, these games are the only reason anyone should buy a GC.

ok... Enough suckin up to the man.

The graphics in this game are just as good as the original, plus there are new weapons, enemies, and tough boss battles.  The sound/music has music from the original metroid games in it, which just adds to the awesomeness of this game.

The controls are stil the same, with some minor changes with the new weapons, and most important in this game, is the legendary SCREW attack. Any metroid fan knows that this abliltiy kicks major ass.

Plus, its an attack that has the word SCREW in it. C'mon!

The story line is waaaay diffrent from any metroid storyline that I know of, but this game is still pretty good to its orginal roots. A sad fact is that you don't have any more Chozo spirits to play with.

This game has a bunch of new features, but still alot of memories from the metroid franchise.

All in all, a great game, plus with the decline of the GC its pricing can't be beat. Bust open the piggy jar, and buy this game.
