Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault is good but not great. On one hand, as a $20 title -- and you get the handheld version, too -- there's a lot of value here. Plus, the action can be fun, frenetic, and as silly as previous games in the franchise. The environments in which you fight in are varied and the addition of a "tower defense" mechanism while protecting your base is a good idea. You have your choice of characters, weapons, and planets to fight in. But on the flipside, the action feels like deja vu compared to other Ratchet & Clank titles and the game lacks a lengthy single-player campaign, big story, and memorable scenes. As the price point reflects, this is more like a mini-game that, while fun, isn't going to be remembered as one of the better titles of 2012. It's a decent purchase, especially if you want to play against others online -- even on another platform.
