Trusted Reviews Awards: Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is 2021’s Best PlayStation Game

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart has won the Best PlayStation Game Editor’s Choice Award at the Trusted Reviews Awards 2021.

The colorful platformer and PS5 exclusive overcame Returnal, Demon’s Souls and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales to take the prize. The game is a sequel to the much beloved platformer titles first seen on the PS2.

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart won over reviewer and Computing and Gaming Editor Ryan Jones with its quirky humour, fun gameplay and stellar visuals. The combo earned Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart an impressive 4.5/5 in our in-depth review and lead Jones to conclude:

“Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is one of the best entries in the series yet, with gripping chaotic shootouts, exhilarating platforming, and a charming story. Thanks to the extra firepower of the PS5 there are lots of next-gen upgrades to enjoy too, from the jaw-dropping 4K visuals to the immersive DualSense feedback. This is a must-buy for PS5 owners.”
