# 3 – Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

When you were growing up with a PlayStation, you probably had a fidelity to either Ratchet and Clank or Jak and Daxter. I know what camp I was in, but there is no denying that as a highlander, one has endured.

Rift Apart does not fundamentally reinvent the formula on which Ratchet and Clank have built a franchise, but it does introduce enough new elements, including Rivet and the titular rifts, to stand out as an unforgettable chapter in Lombax’s narrative. As a technical showpiece, it makes the mind race towards what this console will be capable of at the end of its life cycle.

Rift Apart is Insomniac’s third release in a row, which is part of a countdown to the Press Start Game of the Year, which talks about both the quality of their titles and the consistency of their development practices.

In his review, Kieron Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart gave a 9.5 / 10 and said: “Some less missed options, except that this Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart is an unforgettable, incredibly beautiful and directly addictive game and easily the best entry in the tab. -favorite franchise.Despite all its amazing visuals, industry-leading design and writing packed with heart and humor, it manages to be a really good time first and foremost.Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the most fun I’ve had with a DualSense in hand, and that stands as the best current reason to own a PS5. “

As it stands, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart sits at 88 based on 126 reviews.
