Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is a four-player third-person action-adventure platformer that takes place in a sci-fi setting with cartoon-like visuals. The game takes place after A Crack In Time, though is considered a spin-off of the Future series.
Ratchet, Clank, and his friends team up with their old nemesis Dr. Nefarious, when they face against Ephemeris, the Creature Collector, who takes dangerous creatures from parts of the universe for unknown reasons.
Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One received very mixed reviews, with an average score of 74%, both praised and criticized for the four-player co-op feature, praised for its overall fun level, and criticized by some for being too much of a departure from the original series.
If you've played any other Ratchet & Clank titles, you'll be familiar with the fact that they're fun and none too difficult, and All 4 One is no exception. The platinum involves one playthrough, with some mopping-up and a bit of grinding for a million bolts afterwards. While the game is designed to be played co-op, it's possible to unlock everything so long as you have a second controller. The two online trophies are just for playing online, and don't require boosting.
Overall, the Platinum will take you between 18-20 hours.
Since there are no difficulty-related trophies, feel free to select Normal for your playthrough. For the most part, you can just play from beginning to end and enjoy the story. The game is designed to be played as co-op, and so if you have a friend or two, plug in an extra controller and have fun. While it's easier and quicker playing co-op, and will help you net some trophies, it's not necessary.
After you've finished the story, you can use the Mission Select to go back and mop-up anything you missed. Most likely, this will include The First Million Is Always The Hardest trophy, which requires having 1 million bolts. This is not accumulative, which means you should work on collecting this many bolts and unlocking the trophy first, before going for upgrading all your weapons. Simply replay and grind the higher, more difficult levels to get the required number of bolts.
There are two online trophies: Waiting Room and Connected. You'll unlock the first simply by heading into the online lobby, and the second once the game starts. A PSN Pass is required, which is included with the game if you purchased it new.
