Ratchet and Clank
Releasing in April this year, Ratchet and Clank rebooted the Lombax and Robot’s series of adventures onto current-gen consoles in style. Exclusive to the PS4 and largely retelling the same story as the very first game, Ratchet and Clank saw the duo explore beautifully vibrant, colorful worlds as they aimed to take down the evil Supreme Executive Chairman, Drek.
This wasn’t some half-measures attempt to bring a PS2 game to the modern era, though. Ratchet and Clank on PS4 had been completely rebuilt from the ground up and oh boy did it show. The game quite literally looked like an animated TV show, both during cutscenes and the in-game action. Ratchet and Clank proved you don’t need hyper-realistic graphics to be one of the prettiest games on current-gen consoles.
