Can you imagine racing up to 11 of your friends in an open world, taking on challenges on the fly to a remixed version of The Who’s Baba O’Riley? In EA and Criterion Games’ Need For Speed Most Wanted the multiplayer will allow you to do just that. Well, you might have to play the music yourself but the thought of it sounds pretty incredible. Similar to Burnout Paradise’s multiplayer where you simply dropped into a world with your friends you’ll be able to pick a car from a selection of Sports, Exotic, Track and SUV and enjoy a nonstop playlist of competitive events.

Ratchet and Clank has been around since the PS2 and was known for it’s guns, comical tone and stylish setting. But the Ratchet and Clank games have also all been solo besides the versus modes that were in a few of the games. All 4 One is the game that changes the pace for the series by making coop a requirement. Me and my girlfriend are always on the lookout for a good coop game, while the competitive games are always fun to play, coop games give a whole different experience. Lucky for us and any of you who are also big coop players, this month seems to be a heavy coop month with the releases of games such as Dungeon Defenders and Payday: The Heist and many more. The Coop lineup kicks off with the release of Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One!
All 4 One tends to go along the same path as the other Ratchet and Clank games as the story starts off as the heroes battling the evil Dr. Nefarious but the game somehow manages to bring him onto the good side and all four of the characters (Ratchet, Clank, Qwark and Nefarious) work through the game to complete various tasks. The game heavily emphasizes the coop by making parts of the game that requires more than one player to complete. Enemies are also killed easier and faster if more than one player is attacking the same one. And while all this is happening you are still competing to see who can get the most bolts to upgrade their guns! While playing through the game I was very much reminded of the fun the first time I played Castle Crashers and Little Big Planet as I laughed and had fun taking other players and sabotaging them by scooping them up in my vacuum and shooting them off the side. And I think that is one of the greatest aspects of this Ratchet and Clank being a coop game. While most multiplayer games are frustrating and irritating, this has more of a light tone and allows the players to have fun. But this does not go without saying a lot of the good things about the other Ratchet and Clank games are missing. Continue Reading
