This Is Why We Play Videogames – Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Review | Zyro-EG

Jason says, “I can’t deny there is quite a thin line between nostalgia and modernization. Sometimes, you ruin things when you try to modernize it, and other times, you ruin things when you fail to modernize it. But a lot like the 2016 reboot, Rift Apart manages to tip-toe the line to make sure you still feel like you’re playing something classic, but new and fun at the same time. The fact that this is also then wrapped up in one of the most pristine presentations ever gives just about anyone with retinas and hands a reason to get a PS5. The one flaw this game has then, is that it’s pretty much a single playthrough that can easily be done in a weekend, even for completionists, and that continues to make me scratch my head at Sony’s $10 exclusive “tax”. Still, this is it: this is why we play videogames; this is the epitome of gaming enjoyment.”
