Ratchet & Clank 2: Going Commando


The rodent and robot combo kick ass in this solid sequel.

The sound effects, music and voice acting is all top notch - pay attention during the cutscenes and you may recognize some of the actors involved. The musical score is crisp and exciting, matching the environments perfectly. Enemies yell, electronics...

Ratchet & Clank


Every once in a while a game will come along that makes me thankful that Cone and I didn't trade in our PS2. Ratchet and Clank is one of those games. With a good recommendation from our favorite EB Games in Huebner Oaks, we bought Ratchet and Clank on...

Ratchet & Clank


Name recognition is one of the key selling points for video games. Much like James Bond, The Terminator and Star Wars are guaranteed gold at the box office, the same goes for videogames. Any game bearing Mario, Crash Bandicoot or Spyro The Dragon...

Insomniac has helped Sony add another 3-D platformer to the must play list for the PS2. With releases like Sly Cooper, Jak and Daxter, and Ratchet and Clank, Sony is not just satisfying fans of the genre; they are creating a whole new generation of...

Ratchet & Clank


Pure platforming bliss.

In all honesty, Ratchet & Clank is truly the perfect example of what a game should be. With its rich cast of characters, deep gameplay, gorgeous graphics and wonderful soundtrack, R&C packs the ingredients to a perfect platformer and combines them...

Ratchet & Clank


Sony's newest heroes deliver a solid but uninspired adventure.

Mind-blowing graphics, good music, wide variety of weapons / gadgets, unlimited lives, very long

Lack of inspiration works against fun factor, unlikeable main character, slight control niggles, very long

Ratchet & Clank Review for the PS2


A good mechanic is hard to find.

Solid platformer with plenty of action; Pretty funny; Chicken morphing ray

Various control problems; Camera issues

Clank is somewhere between Gir of Invader Zim in form and chatty C3PO in function. He's the straight man to Ratchet's jokes, offering clueless intellectualism to contrast Ratchet's pissy humor. The two work together nicely, but they're not...

Ratchet & Clank


What would you do if suddenly, out of the blue, someone wanted you to drop everything and accompany him or her on a mission of global importance. You'd travel to exotic lands, acquire artifacts to help you on your quest, and face off against scores of...

Overall, Ratchet and Clank is the kind of game that any gamer would want in their library, whether it's as a holiday present or as a gift to yourself. Revamping the action platformer genre with plenty of action, wacky, impressive gadgets and an...

Ratchet & Clank review


Leave it to the first game in a three game franchise to have the best box art. It’s been only two years since Ratchet and Clank first came out, and since then, we now have seen a total of three games. We’ve also seen Ratchet and Clank...

The only complaint about Ratchet and Clank that I can find is its length, which is resolved with its two sequels. The game starts out easy, but will later become more difficult. The final boss is a multi-stage boss, and is very difficult to beat....

Ratchet & Clank


Ratchet & Clank are thrown together as allies in a quest to find Captain Quark in hopes of informing him about Chairmen Drek's plan to destroy other planets and use them to create his own perfect planet. The two adventures travel from planet to planet...

Huge living levels; Lots of weapons and gadgets to use; Graphics and music are well done

Camera is a little lazy; Aim on weapons is flaky

Ratchet & Clank is a very enjoyable game that fans of the platformer and adventure genre's should make the effort to find. While it may not revolutionize the genre, it does more than enough things right and offers a wide variety of options to get...

Ratchet & Clank


The platform genre has always been a popular one, from Super Mario to Sonic the Hedgehog. Now Insomniac Games brings us Ratchet & Clank, a new twist on something old. The game has all the basics to keep platform fans happy, but it's loaded with...

All in all, Ratchet & Clank is an addictive adventure with beautiful graphics,amusing characters, a wide variety of gadgets to collect and plenty of different things to do. I can easily recommend this game to anyone who is a platform fan, and even if...

Product Specifications

Lending weight to all those saying about the number three (it's magic, a charm and, apparently what most things come in), Insomniac Games completes a hat trick with the online enabled follow-up to its hugely popular Ratchet & Clank: Locked and Loaded. Reuniting the galaxy-hopping pair once more for a tale of interplanetary espionage and adventure, Ratchet & Clank sees weapons expert Ratchet and his robotic companion Clank teaming up for another mission on the Lombax's home planet Veldin, this time to save all organic life in the universe.
