Like Lombaxes, platformers are something of a dying breed.  In a world cluttered with gritty, overly macho, shooters, Insomniac has kept the colorful, and perhaps soulful, platformer going and A Crack In Time is nothing less than a triumph.  The story has matured, the gameply razor sharp with near shining perfection, and the puzzles will leave your brain folding over itself to get the solution.  While the space combat is a bit of a disapointment, the exploration of sectors is a real treat.  Even though it's been suggested that this is the finale, I really hope that gaming's dynamic duo will keep coming back.
