This was a fun game...unfortunatly It did not hold my intrest long enough...gameplay was smooth, but tricky in places...controls are strange and I never did quite get the hang of them, but with more time I could've gotten better with them...the game lost my intrest before that happened...all in all not a bad game, it was just lacking something to make it great
When my roommate first bought a PS2 he bought this game because of the cover not knowing to expect as far as a first person shooter. We each started our own saved game and were battling one another to see who could finish first.
Surprisingly, "Ratchet & Clank" tells an engaging and humorous story about Ratchet and his new friend Clank and their effort to save the galaxy. At times you'll just want to stop (when not being engaged by enemies) and use the right analog stick to just look around because the vistas and environments are all beautifully rendered. And each planet deserves a second or third visit simply to find all the extras.
The only flaw is that you can easily go back to old planets you've already defeated to get more bolts so you can buy better weapons. But aside from that minor detail, you will not be able to stop playing until you've finally finished.
We've found that once were were done (yes, my roommate won our little contest) you'll want to set it aside and go back to it later. That is the sign of a true classic game.
