TGS 2007: Ratchet & Clank Future is still looking beautiful

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

is definitely one of Sony’s aces when it comes to “teh consule warz” and judging from this trailer, it’s easy to see how. Just check out that animation, it’s absolutely gorgeous. One can’t deny the impact of the bright and punchy visuals either, proving that photorealism isn’t the only answer. While I’ve never been a huger follower of the series, it’d take a stone-hearted villain not to be charmed by these looks.

Of course, the game’s wit and irreverent style seem to be in place as well, which is always important. Throw in some more crazy weaponry and platforming action and there’s no reason why Tools of Destruction will fail.
