Watching Giant Bomb do a live look at it right as the embargo lifted and both Jeffs are proclaiming it is hands down the best game in the series and is a showcase for what the PS5's quick load times can really do and is what a lot of reviews are calling the first truly "next gen" game for these consoles.

That said I've never played a single one so I don't know how high that bar is, but maybe I'll play them one day!

Anyway we got an 88 average through 53 reviews so far! Check a look.

Game Revolution
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is the first PS5 exclusive that I can recommend everyone go out and buy. Its a cutting-edge masterclass of what the PS5 is capable of, but with the soul of the original R&C games, packaged with a comprehensive set of accessibility options.

Hobby Consolas
In many ways Rift Apart is the first "next gen" game. It truly feels like playing a Pixar movie, with great details, animations and an impressive weapon catalogue. Traveling trough dimensions mechanics never cease to amaze.

Gamespot
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart looks and plays better than ever thanks to new-generation hardware, but it's still the same lovable, goofy series at heart.

TheSixthAxis
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the PlayStation 5 showcase you have been waiting for. Instantaneous travel to worlds thanks to the SSD, thumping 3D audio, ray tracing through the gorgeous levels, and clever use of the DualSense bring the many locations to life. Paired with classic Ratchet & Clank gameplay, this game is a riotous feast of explosions, platforming, and fast paced action.

Shacknews
Whether you've had adventures with Ratchet & Clank in the past or not, Rift Apart is not a game to be missed. It's one of the best games you can get for your PS5 and one of the best games of 2021 so far, period.

GamingTrend
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is one of the best games I've played this year. It's fun, it's endearing, and I just want to play it again. The gameplay isn't much different, but it's refined and has aged like a fine wine, with the technical prowess on display we've come to expect from Insomniac Games. If you're looking for a great narrative, the story is arguably the best in the series, with the grandeur of a Marvel movie in tow. One could imply the game isn't long enough, but that's only because they put down the controller, and that's just not what you're going to do if you have a copy of Rift Apart.

A Crack in Time is the best PS3 game, so it's high praise to say Rift Apart is even better.

I just played through the main series besides the two shorter entries on PS3 over the last few months, so it's good to know my rushing was apparently worth it.

I read the AV Club review.
https://www.avclub.com/new-console-new-dimension-same-old-ratchet-and-clank-1847038466
He said it's a pretty standard entry and that's fine. So maybe I'll like it more than him if I really liked the others.

Haven't played any of these games since Deadlocked so I tried playing the reboot they gave out for free a couple months back and it felt awful. That did inspire me to acquire the original PS2 trilogy and I've been having a blast with those.

Pleased to hear the praise for this one!

God dammit I'm buying this aren't I?

I really wanted to wait for a price drop on a game like this....but I've always loved this series and it's been forever.

Yeah I was also in the "maybe" territory because Intergrade is also out this week and I get that for free, but several reviewers I respect are just heaping praise on the game. My priority is now to finish the PS2 trilogy and pick this up.

Sorry, Yuffie! Now Ratchet is best friend.

Nice. Haven't played a very good R&C game since A Crack in Time and even that one didn't really blow me away like Up Your Arsenal did.

the thing that actually has me interested in R&C is that it's the first game since Astrobot to use the haptics in the Dualsense extremely well

I love me them haptics

if people would give more love to R&C we'd get more R&C games and fewer Souls games

Well, in actuality if people would buy more R&C games we'd get more R&C games and the same number of soul games. So its only a positive trade off.

Now THESE are Pixar guns!

Great so far.

Only issue so far is a bunch of stuff you can jump to off the beaten path that in past games would have led to a secret (a circular platform near the end of the first major area, and some cut off pipes at the beginning of the second major area, for example), but here they seem to be nothing.
