What did we say?
From Morgan Webb's Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One Review:
"The tone and dialogue skew much younger than previous games. The series has always been appropriate for teens and pre-teens, but All 4 One lacks the puns, winks, and double entendres that served to make this a truly all-ages franchise. It was the bawdy irreverence that made the series so great. This does not mean All 4 One is insipid or cloying (OK there is one character that is insipid and cloying, you’ll know her the instant she opens her precious little mouth) and there are funny moments and some clever laugh lines, but without any edge it feels like Ratchet without the soul."
