Nope. Not at all. I believe the term your looking for is "non Noob friendly". Under the right hands any character can be good. --- I work for the Triple Ho association, an underground committee that works with Santa and determines who is on naughty list. Pretty sure your name was on there.
He has wide swings and can change direction mid combo.
Charging with his shield has priority over many attacks.
Blocking with shield increases AP.
His level 1 super is terrible.
His level 2 super is pretty awesome. Will wipe the screen half the time.
His level 3 is good and pretty unavoidable.
His level 1 pretty much sucks lol.
His Level 2 is completely avoidable.
So is his level 3... Well its a glitch/exploit but without that then his level 3 is pretty solid.
He's slow for no reason also. Its not like he has spectacular AP gain. --- [Not changing sig until a new Ratchet and Clank game that I can be hyped for is announced.] PSASBR Main: Ratchet, PSN: xQziCyFlaMeZxQz, msg to _krat0s_: K
