So this game looks like a cutesy cartoon game right?


This is one of the most sophisticated platform games I have ever seen, and I have been a gamer for a long time. It is a true testament to the power of the Playstation 2 that this game was created!

You play Ratchet, an interstellar grease monkey (fox-cat-furry thing) who meets the lovable and uptight robot, Clank. Clank enlists his help to save the solar system in exchange for starting up Ratchet's spaceship (which is quickly demolished). I guess Ratchet was really bored with his provincial life, because he and Clank head off throughout the galaxy in various ships collecting one of the widest assortment of weapons and gadgets I have ever seen (over 35!). They blast robots and monsters into oblivion and fight valiantly against the imperialist evildoers of the universe. The story itself is really great with fun characters, high quality animation and good solid performances!

Then there is the gameplay! Can you say PERFECT? There is this amazing learning curve that you go through when playing the game. You start off with just two weapons and simple controls. As time wears on, you get more and more gadgets and more and more movement possibilities. The world starts to blossom open, with new areas becoming available that you never would have thought of. It is so much fun.

Three words: Chicken Morphing Gun. Nuff Said.

The game is a masterful execution of what a Playstation 2 game should be. This is one you are going to want to spend some time with. It will quickly become like an old friend!

My Review of Ratchet and Clank

What I think about Ratchet and Clank is that this game is one of the best games I played on the PS2. Ratchet and Clank is so fun, I like playing both characters of the game. I beat this game 10 times and it was so easy. Some of the levels were kind of hard, but still easy. The hardest level I say is the last level: Planet Veldin. It's hard, but I still beat it. I hope the creators of this game make this game: The Ratchet and Clank Collection, with all Ratchet and Clank games into one disc!, I hope they make that game in the future. I LOVE RATCHET AND CLANK!!!!!

The gameplay is solid with all the weapons you use. They're big and destructive, but does it still make it fun? Yes! It's fun from start to finish!

Graphics are good as well. The background and skybox's are stunning and the explosions look very realistic.

The story is good for a platformer. It could use more talking though.

Gameplay: 9/10
Graphics: 9/10
Story: 7/10
