I'm not going to be really missing anything by passing over Tools and going right for Crack In Time, am I? I know it's not a particularly story-intensive series or anything, but I just want to be sure I wouldn't be doing myself a disservice by skipping over one gaming experience that could potentially enhance the other (as I fully intend on getting back to it at some point).
Agreed with WF, CiT is more fun and the clank missions are a blast.
I played CiT first and didn't feel lost or anything story-wise
Opportunity is often missed because it shows up in overalls, looking like work.
