PSU’s Game Of The Year 2021 – Best Platformer


Best Platformer 2021: Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Good platformers aren’t as abundant as they once were, but that seems to be changing around the industry. This year alone we saw some excellent platformers of the 2D and 3D variety, and it doesn’t look like that momentum will stop.

For this year however, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was our choice for 2021’s best platformer. Insomniac’s lombax focused franchise has always been a great showcase visually in each PlayStation console generation, but they’ve each been solid 3D platformers along the way. Rift Apart is no different.
