Ratchet and Clank Future: Quest For Booty is the next installment in the Ratchet and Clank franchise, sporting numerous sequels and fun gameplay. Quest For Booty doesn’t take away from this, but will leave you feeling empty inside.
Ratchet and Clank Quest For Booty is all about finding Clank. Clank has been captured by the Zonis and it’s up to Ratchet to get him back. There are plenty of clues along the way to guide Ratchet to finding Captain Darkwater, who is behind it all.
The graphics in the game are as crisp and clear as they were in last year’s Tools of Destruction. They don’t have the same ‘pop’ as they used to, but they do the job well, so no complaints there. No framerate hiccups and virtually no loading times are also a treat.
As in all previous games, the gameplay is simple and easy to figure out. You have plenty of guns at your disposal to blast away all the pirate goons. Controls work fine for platforming as well.
The only real complaint I have with Quest For Booty is its length. I clocked at about only two and a half hours and there’s nothing to really go back for. The ending, I won’t spoil, but disappoints in every way. I am just left wondering where the next part of the game is. I guess it will just have to wait until next year.
Overall, if you liked Tools Of Destruction and you MUST know what happens next, then spend the $15. Otherwise, don’t waste your time or money. There’s nothing functionally wrong here, but it doesn’t provide that sweet satisfaction we’ve all come to expect from games.
