if you play the PSP version before.. then there's really no need to play this PS2 version.. unless you want to play co-op mode offline or playing it on the big screen. Since it's a port.. i would thought they at least refine the graphic.. but it's looks exactly like the PSP.. and there's no vibration fuction either..But if you had never played the psp version.. then this is a goode addition to the Rachet and clank series.. but prepare for expensive than normal gadget purchases and harder than usual difficulty. It's a good game.. but i wish they could at least refine the graphic and add rumble support for the PS2 version.. but i guess they didn't..

Let's get the bad stuff out of the way. The graphics are lousy compared to the rest of the series, owing to the game being a PSP port. This is especially true if you own a large display. (However, like the other R&C titles, it does support 16:9 and progressive scan).
The story and writing? Yeah, not the best in the series. Some of the other reviews blame this on it being by High Impact and not Insomniac; I was ready to accept this until I learned that High Impact is made up of a bunch of Insomniac's developers.
Now the good stuff - it's still a R&C game. It's got goofy weapons, demented humour, and lots of minigames. If I were negative, I could say it's the weakest R&C game, but the lowest point of this series is still a lot better than a lot of games being dumped on the PS2.
If you have a PSP, get it for that, because the biggest flaw (graphics) will be less noticeable.

If you have enjoyed the other games in the series, you may want to skip this game. The controls work fine , but the camera is shotty at best. The graphics are good for the PSP , but are weak for a console game. The game is a good rental , but sadly far from worth owning !!!
