If you are looking for a good platform game, I highly reccomend this. Great characters, weapons, graphics, controls, humor, you name it. I liked playing it so much I bought it and the other 3 PS2 sequels. The only "bad" thing about the game is to get the better weapons, you have to collect bolts (money) for a while.
Ratchet and clank is pretty weak compared to the other three. The weapons don't upgrade and the levels are not all the fun. If you are looking for lots of fun this may not be the game for you. Luckily if you play the series in the order they were made they get better. For a starter to a good series it is a decent game.
Its a action packed sifi advnture with ratchet and clank. you must journy accross the unierse to defete charman dreck. he wants to destroy planet velden(ratchet's home plannet). at the end of the first plannet you will se a little beat up robot (clank) walk over to him. you will atomaticly appear back at the ship. after ratchet finnishes fixing it you will go to the next plannet atomaticly dont think that happens evry time sometimes you must walk back. right as the ship crahes in to the wall press the x button then when you fall there is sompthing on the ledge your on about GOLDEN WEPONS. i mean like if you are eavan off by one micro seccond it wont work. its not the gadgatron vender.there is two parts two this world. you get a ship oh and later in the game you get a wicked cool ship at the space station. you alos deffet quark here but thats no the last of him. you see him at one or two plannets over as a bum.
