    I just found out that Gamestop has the demo and since I had already put 5 bucks down, I got the demo today. No waiting for Oct 4th for this one. FTW!

    Long demo, and a blast. Definitely back to the roots of R & C, in that it plays a lot more like part 1 and less like a third person shooter. Also a lot more platforming elements. Graphics are sweet, not from a use every trick in the book standpoint, rather taking the style of the old games and adding just enough juice to make it next gen, but not gritting it up like Gears with normal mapping and insane texture filtering just for the sake of saying it's next gen. It's R&C, and the robots as well as R & C look amazing.

    Definitely not pulling my money off this one. I kinda do miss the 3rd Person shooter controls, but I never had a problem with the first one and it didn't have them so I won't lose sleep over it.

    This game has to be good. 1,2 & 3 was awesome. It's all full of win.

    Yeah, I agre. Granted I miss the third person controls, but I only miss them because I've played so many first/third person games and it made the game just another TPS, but now it feels like part one. It still has the adventure, and the different weapons, but it's less of a third person shooter now and more of a platformer adventure game.

    You know. Ratchet and C is my favorite of the three, BUT.... Sly Cooper comes sooo damn close to being the best for me. It's mechanics are a blast, and you feel like a real badass when you play as sly, also the visual style and the way the music changes to what you are doing, makes this trilogy a must play.

    This is the one game that would make me want to get a PS3. I've always been a big fan, now it's going to cost me.

    If I had an extra $600 bucks, I would be a PS3 to play this game.

    I'm not kidding. I have much love for the Ratchet & Clank games. I even have the phone game on my cell.

    If the rumors are true, by december you won't need 600 as there will be a 399 dollar system released.

    Not until October 4th, but I guess Insomniac thought they would give us a month more to ponder on the game, so they released one to Gamestops.
