Many of the reviews praise the game’s superb visuals, on-point action, and heart-warming humour. Other reviewers are calling it the best PS5 game to date and the best game in the Ratchet & Clank series.
Reviews are also mentioning that Rift Apart maintains the same quality of gameplay that the games had previously. But ratchets it up a notch for the new generation.
