Its like Starfox meets Simpsons for a sweet game!

This is the first Ratchet and Clank game I've ever played. I've owned a Playstation for the past decade but never bothered with this franchise, but now that I've got gamefly, I figured I'd give it a shot, and man do I regret not checking this franchise out sooner.

This game is crazy fun. The weapons are the most unique I've ever seen in a game. Show me another game that gives you an alien looking gun that fires a belch that doubles as its mating call.

and the hover boots? (once you get them) all I can say is wow. It is ridiculous fun to go flying around on jet boots up ramps and bouncing off walls.

Where do I get Starfox? Well inbetween each stage you get to fly from planet to planet in your ship. Each planet has an objective where you need to find things to upgrade your weapons and ship (this is optional but why pass it up?)

The lightheartedness and sometimes sarcastic humor of the game makes it that much more enjoyable. Ratchet has this buffoon sidekick with him who makes stupid comments from time to time, reminds of Chief Wiggum or Troy McClure in the Simpsons.

The Clank levels are more puzzle based and I don't find them quite as fun as Ratchet's, but the puzzles are unique. They deal with making multiple copies of yourself to handle 2 or 3 tasks at once. So it was nice to see something fresh.

Graphically, the game is pretty nice to look out. Nothing super groundbreaking but very fluid and shiny.

The gameflow is amazing. I can zoom into battle on my hoverboots, whip out my guns and take on an army of aliens with absolutely no slowdown and it feels totally natural. Other games should take note.

I'm only, I would guess, about one third through the game, but I'm sold. Ratchet and Clank is fun as can be, and I can't wait to try the other games in the franchise.

A superb game! Great story (with some excellent humor thrown in!), likable characters & great artwork & graphics. Gameplay is fun & diverse. Adjustable combat settings, loads of weapons & upgrades, tons of exploration & secrets to uncover! What more can you ask for?!? Rent this & you'll have trouble putting the controller down - really loved this game! My best, D.

Notibly the game is far better than previous versions. Great graphics. Every mission has tons of action and no mission is ever the same. Each mission on each chapter stands out on its own. This game allows you to pick alongside an arsenal of weapons, all of which are very creative and just impressive. As you go along, the weapons can be modified. More weapons are available throughout Ratchet's missions. The controls from movements to weapons and special gadgets are very easy to use and, considering the vast amount of things you can do, they made them so that the game is more enjoyable. Great game to pass the time. I strongly would recommend it to a friend. Overall, the game kept me on my toes (without any stale boring moments) the whole time.
