Sony"s gadget-wielding duo return with new weapons, new abilities, and a revealing conclusion to the "Future" storyline in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. Set after the events of the downloadable title Quest for Booty, A Crack in Time finds the dynamic Lombax Ratchet and his robot friend Clank battling to prevent the aptly named Dr. Nefarious from altering space and time. Levels are designed to allow open exploration, with new space gameplay letting gamers blast their way around various star systems, while Ratchet"s new Hoverboots and Clank"s Chronoscepter give players new ways to solve puzzles and navigate levels. As always, the pair make use of the finest weapons and accessories, including such familiar armaments as the Negotiator and Buzz Blades, as well as new tools of destruction like the Cryo-Bomb Glove, the Plasma Striker, and the Spiral of Death. And those looking for a degree of customization can collect Constructo mods throughout the game to design their very own high-powered weapons.
