Rated 10 out of 10 by Sly Lover Best Plaform Game Ever!
Ratchet and Clank is the best platforming game ever. With a pretty engaging storyline and lots of awesome guns to choose from, Insomniac Games created an epic adventure. You play as Ratchet and sometimes, even Clank, his robot side-kick (similar to Jak and Daxter). The controls are excellent and the graphics are really fun to look at. The sound pretty fun to listen to, though sometimes repetitive. The storyline is enough for you to play the game for a whole week straight, literally. The cut-scenes add to the fun and the boss monster at the end of the game is not too hard, as in other video games where they create impossible challenges at the end of the game, infuriating players. Though there were times where you had to take some time to get through parts of the game, the challenge was not too easy or too hard. My favorite part was how certain gadgets and the environment would play a part in the game. Anyone who loves the Sly Cooper series and the Jak and Daxter series will love this series!
Rated 10 out of 10 by a serious gamer an excellent game!
The ratchet and clank series are my favorite games. This game has outstanding graphics for ps2 as well as sound. The storyline is addicting along with the gameplay, I beat the game 3 times on challenge mode and will gladly do another. I usually play this game 3 to 5 hours at a time and is a very long game. I have never been bored with this game because you can do optional missions, find hidden bolts that unlock new weapons, and gain skill points to unlock different features. To further explain the game it is a third person shooter, does not have progressive scan or Dolby surround sound, it is not glitchy unless you try to glitch, it does not have online play, it is only one player, and has lots of clean humor in it. This game grabs the player and truly brings an experience that no other game has. The controls are friendly and easy to learn. If you like high explosive action, unlocking new armor/weapons, and an overall best game ever then I would highly recommend this game to any player. I guarantee you will enjoy this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by howtobasicstarwarsbatman I LOVE THIS GAME
Thisnis the game that started a legacy and made my childhood I remember playing this game whwn it first came out. Ths gameplay is simple fun and smooth its so easy that even the youngest of children could play it and do. The graphics are awesome for its time bright pretty colors and nice soft textures that are just fun to look at. The story is fun to I loved this it as a kid and still love how fun it as an adult. Replay ability nis huge theres so much to find I actually have played this game 4 times and haven't gotten everything yet and dont think just because I said its easy for kids thst it isn't challenging theres parts that will definitely pull out the rager in you.
Rated 8 out of 10 by PS2Pirate A very fun game, but not very challenging
Well after playing the spyro series all the way though, I was looking for something just like it, luckily Ratchet and Clank filled that gap. there's basic melee moves, upgradable weapons,as well as a variety of weapons to use at your disposal. problem is to obtain the weapons you must have plenty of money to purchase them, which means running everywhere to go get the bolts scattered all around the different worlds, as well as running errands for people. The gameplay is great because it takes many different elements from other mascots and combines them together, i.e sonic's grinding, spyro's gliding spiderman's swinging. there aren't really any bosses in the game, and even when there are there not really important, (there not named, nor do they have a theme song) so if you dont like bosses then your in luck. there's sidemissions such as hoverboarding, and exterminating pests, other than that you'll have to play the game by is story. lastly there's really nothing to do after the game but look for gold bolts, and unlock new weapons, so you can beat the game even faster.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Ratchet_________ A must get game
Ratchet and Clank is with no doubt one of the best games ever. With having excellent sound and characters, their background creates a great storyline. It is truly a games you shouldn't miss out on. By being allowed to play as either Ratchet and Clank in parts of the game, you get different abilities and weaknesses. Also being able to hoverboard race is great, and the different options are good. The negatives with it, wich are extremely little ar that you can't play multiplayer like 'Up Your Arsenal'. The massive range of weapons from the blaster to RYNO is great but is annoying because those weapons you started out with arn't to and advantage into the middle of the game. And once you reach toward the end of the game, the boss i realy hard to beat without RYNO (I died 9 times using only the Lectra claw and blasters). A great game that lacks in some of the sequels but an enjoyable game overall.

I love the ratchet and clank games, this one is the first one i played too....If you like the Jak and Daxter games then you will more than likely enjoy this.... its like Jak and Daxter in the sense that Clank is just Ratchets little helper and he stays on ratchets back most of the time.... Challenge: not much of a challenge but that doesnt take away from the fun. 6/10 Controls: they arent sophisticated and they are easy to get the hang of. 8/10 Graphics: Decent graphics for even now 8/10 length: not very lengthy, but not very short i give it a six out of ten... 6/10 Sound: Good Sound effects and they arent the same thing over and over, they may be the same but its not over and over again.... 8/10 Storyline: Good and intresting. not much else to say.... 9/10 Overall: Buy it.....if you cant say you have played Ratchet and Clank, or Jak and daxter....I pity you...... 9/10
Rated 10 out of 10 by Ratchet & Clank Fan Ratchet & Clank = Best video game series ever made.
I'll sum this up rather quickly.... Ratchet & Clank is the best video game series ever made. Period. The whole series has amazing graphics for a PS2 game...Lush environments that are vibrant and breath-taking....An epic storyline with tons of very funny dialogue for each character...Amazing gameplay and puzzles....I bought the game 2 months ago...I have played the whole series and all I can say is... YOU MUST GET THIS GAME. This is probably the absolute best platforming game/video game series ever made. R&C, Going Commando, and Up Your Arsenal are the PS2 entries in the series (so is Size Matters)... The characters in this game are characters you'll probably never forget.. Ratchet is a mechanic and belongs to the Lombax race while Clank is a robot from a distant planet named Quartu. The main villain of the game is Chairman Drek, who wants to use the Deplanetizer to build a new planet for his fellow Blarg race (since their planet is filled with gases and toxic waste). All in all, that was just a short synopsis of the story... If you wanna find out more, buy the game! Trust me....you won't be disappointed... ;)

Rated 10 out of 10 by EdgeheadY2J A classic plat-former and a definite game to buy
Ok, I have had Ratchet and Clank for 7 years and I still love to play it. After about 5 minutes, I knew that Ratchet and Clank had become my favorite game series. It still is today. The graphics are amazing for a PS2 game from 2002. The gameplay is not just a regular plat-former. You don't have to do a ton of backtracking nor do you have to collect every single thing. The main thing you'll be collecting is bolts, which is the currency in Ratchet and Clank. You'll also be able to buy and collect a number of wild but cool weapons. You can be weapons and ammo from a vendor that appears at the begging and middle of the level. There is also lots of plat-forming and puzzles. You'll be jumping around from ledge to ledge. You'll also get a swingshot which will allow you to grab targets and swing from them to get where you need to go. You travel to other new and heavily-detailed planets with new and quite interesting enemies to fight. The story is about a Lombax named Ratchet who is a teenage mechanic. He finds a robot named Clank who crashed into Ratchet's home planet. They go on an adventure to find Captain Quark. If you have a PS2 then you need to get this game!
