You Ruined My Childhood

THX YOU JUST GAVE ME CANCER! This is just a remake of flipping (Pardon the profanity) Subway Surfers, except you got some ugly Dino boi's running around which surprisingly doesn't make Ratchet think "Hey, how about we not waste bullets on these innocent little creatures that just want to live and have a family." But also, HE HAS AN INTELLIGENT ROBOT ON HIS BACK THAT SURPRISES ME THAT HE DOESN'T SAY "HEY, THESE CREATURES ARE PROBABLY ENDANGERED AND PLUS BULLETS ARE EXPENSIVE, I MEAN ONE HARBINGER SHOT IS 1000 BOLTS IF YOU REMEMBER FROM DREAD ZONE RATCHET(Reference to Ratchet: Deadlocked. Great game by the way)! Ratchet and Clank going mobile was better than this and that game was actually GOOD (Hey Insomniac, bet you don't here the word good anymore, mostly towards your games). Turns out every Ratchet and Clank game after 2005 was bad including this one(Besides A Crack in Time, make more stuff like that or like Ratchet and Clank 1 and 3). Last thing is that why doesn't Insomniac try another mobile game, but instead of a Subway Surfers remake, why not an actual adventure like the one on console (May or may not cost money, preferably free since Insomniac needs to pay us back after All 4 one, The Ratchet and Clank movie, and Full Frontal Assault). INSOMNIAC CALL ME WHEN YOU MAKE A GOOD RATCHET AND CLANK GAME SO I DON'T HAVE TO LIVE WITH CANCER.

Loved it… but now…

I used to play this a lot. But then, I tried to play it recently, and now after I open it, it crashes during the scene, or if you click the skip button, it crashes while it's loading. Please fix this. I love this game! And add more levels or something cuz it will honestly get boring after you upgrade your guns and armor all the way up… but it's the most fun game ever! Good job Sony! 😸😸😸

Just no

The whole idea of ratchet and clank on your phone seems great, but this game is more annoying then it is fun. They should've made a better game where you don't just grind the whole time and where you can actually do stuff like regular R&C games, and I would've even paid for it. In no previous game did ratchet die in one hit, he should have atleast 4 hits before he dies, especially because when your shooting enemies you finger gets in the way of everything your about to crash into. Being able to tranfer raritianium to the actual PS3 game is cool but barley worth it at all. This game is a disgrace to all R&C games.
