Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is perfect for series newcomers


Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart heralds the next generation of games in this hugely popular series, which is steeped in almost two decades of history. And I’ve never played any of them, until now. 

Jumping into an established franchise can be tough going. You’ve got a cast of characters with complex histories, story arcs spanning years and a universe that has been built from the ground up. When you’re tossed into the deep end, it can be daunting. In-jokes and references to previous games abound, along with the conceit that you actually care about the characters and their fates. If you’re not already invested in the game world and its inhabitants to some degree, your experience can often be a negative one.

I went into Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart completely clueless. But within minutes of the opening sequence, I was strapping myself in for the ride.
