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?

This bromance of a game is better than the first in many respects such as longer, better story and better AI interaction, the decision making and video outcomes were a nice touch too. However, there a few downsides too such as bit repetitive, ending was a bit limp and ONLY 3 SECONDARY GUNS!?!?!?

Even though there were a few more levels in this game, it still only took a few hours to complete it (once as Rios, then as Salem). The story was all over the place too, you should have been after Jonah from the start, not just doing some random job in Shanghai. The straight-to-DVD style storyline makes the game shorter too - no character development and nothing new is brought to the game, which is a shame as after seeing the trailer and ‘making of’ I was actually excited about this game.
 
The AI is touch and go, sometimes you can get stuck behind the other character, or you can’t get a clean shot and you end up shooting him and then he gets mad you! The voice acting is very good and does bring some levity to the game – the bromantic banter is pretty good, but slows it down just a touch especially when you just want to get on with the shootin’ The primary weapons are excellent I must admit, I bought and used them all and they were great fun and using them in your special weapon slot is a nice touch too. I am a big fan of the KR1 made for game gun (shame you can’t customize it though). The biggest let down for me was only 3 secondary guns, I was very surprised at that one, the special weapons are pretty cool and make the game a bit more fun, it’s nice to swap out your armoury halfway through a mission.
You can dress your AI partner and customize his mask, but you can’t pick, or customize his weapon, which would be a good feature if they make a turd, I mean third installation in the series.
Overall this is decent follow on from Army Of Two, but apart from a graphics upgrade and the addition of trophies there isn’t much difference. To get enjoyment out of this game play a co-op or online and then you will get addicted to it. Good for  a weekend with the boys - get your bromance on!!
