NOMINEES


THE WINNER

We voted for Ratchet and Clank as our adventure game of the year. In a lean year for adventure games, Ratchet and Clank was a stellar reimagining of the popular PlayStation franchise. Shannon gave the game a 9 in his review and said: “The 2016 iteration Ratchet and Clank is the absolute pinnacle of the franchise. It takes the best elements from the original Ratchet and Clank game, tightens the narrative and  adds in some newer mechanics from more recent games in the series.”

Jake B said: “Best Adventure goes to Ratchet and Clank! I was so eager for its release, mainly because this franchise was my entire childhood, but also because i was really interested in seeing the direction Insomniac were taking. They created a game true to its roots, nostalgic enough but also with a fantastic, fresh swing, well polished graphics and gameplay that only left you wanting more.”

Camilla said: “Ratchet and Clank was one of the first platformers I had the pleasure of playing on a PlayStation 2 and though the sequels disappointed me, this reimagining of the original game was one of the most purely fun gaming experiences I’ve had in years.”
