Hm, a Ratchet & Clank game? On a COD-inspired slideshow? Strange. But not completely out of left field. Because of its emphasis on assault, I’d say Full Frontal Assault is one of the more COD-minded installments in the 20-year-old creature series Ratchet & Clank.
Haha, kidding! Again! Full Frontal Assault has a fairly different approach to shooting than COD—it even has a different approach to it than other Ratchet & Clank games. Unlike those games, which are mostly third-person shooters with platforming elements, the PS3 download Full Frontal Assault prioritizes tower defense.
In 2012, Stephen Totilo wrote on Kotaku that the game had parallels to multiplayer online battle arena League of Legends, and could be “as deeply engaging and as complex in strategy as its MOBA predecessors.” Ultimately, Full Frontal Assault’s departure from its genre hurt its legacy, but its novelty as a jumbled-up shooter makes it worth a try.
