Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Ratchet and Clank is going to be the superstar platform action game of the season on the PS2, if not all formats. Featuring a pair of wacky robots in a quest to save the universe, it may offer the same old basic platform scenario--run around, elude or destroy enemies, jump, and negotiate treacherously dynamic environments--but it has a number of things going for it that place it among the best titles ever in this genre.

The feature that will strike you first is the terrific art direction. Set in a science fiction future, the game has a beautifully executed retro cartoon look (think old Warner Brothers). The attention lavished on every detail, from architecture to character design, makes for a world that feels complete and real. This extends to the cut scenes, which feature a variety of colourful characters given vivid life with excellent voice acting. Then there's the sheer size and level of interactivity of the environments; a particularly stunning moment came when our character was knocked off a skyscraper, but, instead of perishing, landed on a ledge and was able to seamlessly navigate a whole separate section of the game. Another moment of truth came when we aimed our blaster at one of the vehicles whizzing by in the sky. These vehicles were just pretty wallpaper, we thought, but no, the thing blew up. In fact, nearly every thing you see is destructible or responsive in some way: you can jump up trees, scuttle over walkways, smash boxes, and climb up ledges. And the control scheme is just complex enough to keep things interesting with multiple weapons and the like, without bogging down with too many features.

While the routine of finding and destroying enemy robots may get tedious after a while, Ratchet and Clank keeps things interesting with the many metamorphoses of Clank (who takes on forms that surprise even himself) and cool weapons like the "Glove of Doom", which unleashes armies of tiny Clanks, and shifting 1st-robot, 3rd-robot points of view. This deserves to be the bestselling platform action game of the year. --David Stoesz

Product Description

Set in and around some of the darkest, most inhospitable and downright scary areas of a hostile universe, Ratchet and Clank is an entertaining blend of action adventure, exploration, puzzle solving and all-out combat. You'll find yourself seeking out strange new worlds, encountering bizarre and wonderful new species, and roaming weird alien landscapes--and blowing most of it up with really big weapons. To help you in your mission to thwart Big Bad Boss and save the universe, you'll have a range of cool vehicles and even cooler gadgets, including a hover-board and the extremely handy Magneboots. One of the coolest things of all is Clank himself, a small, intelligent but slightly weird robot who can be transformed into a thrusterpack, a hydropack and a helipack. Among the vast array of hugely destructive weapons you'll collect on your travels are the remarkable Bomb Glove, the Bolt Blaster, a Suck Cannon, a mind-blowing Morpharay and, of course, the aptly-named Devastator.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intergalactic Platform Heaven!! 11 Nov 2002
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Finally, a 'platformer' worthy of Playstation2!!
R&C delivers on so many fronts - the gameplay is first rate, the graphics are fantastic, the depth and breadth of the game just astound.
Now, I haven't completed the game (yet) but I'm a reasonable way through and I love it. The gadgets and weapons (count 'em - 35 of the blighters!!!) are fantastic. Examples - on the Blarg spacestation you can buy a "taunter" which distracts enemies by making stupid noises in their general direction, The Glove of Doom creates 5 little blighters which run off, find the nearest enemy and then self-destruct, The Suck Cannon sucks in small enemies and then blasts them back at whatever is in the way.
The lead characters are generally endearing with Clank stealing the show as a droll but 'politically correct' little Robot.
The cut scenes are great to look at and contain some great comedy moments. R&S is one of those games where they really add to the plot development and aren't just there to look pretty.
OK. Downsides. There are but a few. The constant 'clinking' noise as you pick up bolts can get irritating and as with many other games such as this, the camera can end up where you don't want it (although, to be fair, this is quite rare and very easy to put right).
Summary: It's a platformer. It's great. If you've got Jak and Daxter, this surpasses it by miles. It looks good, sounds good, feels good and has little moments in it that will have you grinning from ear to ear. Worth adding to your collection as the ultimate PSX2 platformer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attention to detail. 2 July 2003
Format:Video Game
Stop for a moment in Ratchet and Clank to admire the scenery, and your time will not be wasted. The amount of detail in this game is jaw-dropping. If you look up at the night sky, you will see stars occassionally glinting at you, and minature space rockets or asteroids fly, not randomly, but on craefully plotted coureses behind and in front of the stars, eclipsing them briefly.
This is not only a brilliant game in it's attention to detail, in fact, it is a perfectly rounded game on all fronts.
The gameplay and controls are a perfectly honed masterpiece of gaming magic. This is a game that you can always be better at, and when I can say this it really shows a startling game.
The graphics are unquestionably the best of any game that I have ever played, going as far as to beat the high powered Xbox. I feel proud to own a PS2, and so should you (if you own this game).
The cartoony cutscenes are quite amusing, and the expressions of the characters are detailed minutely, and are brilliantly animated. The personalities of the characters are well expressed, and tiny sub plots never fail to keep your interest throughout the game.
The lifespan and difficulty levels of this game are well balanced, and it is massive for a platformer. The enviroments are sprawling, and the entire game is free-roaming platform goodness. Because they are so large, one might assume lengthy loading times, but this is not at all the case.They only last about 20 seconds, and your spaceship is shown flying from planet to planet.(each "world" or enviroment is a new planet. Each is massive, and different planets allow for a wide variety of levels).
Don't be mistaken though, this game is not solely for kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars The nuts and bolts of a classic 27 Feb 2003
Format:Video Game
Here is one classic game. It may be called a platformer, a name which may suggest to you some wishy-washy adventure where all you do is hop between ledges and try not to fall into lava pits, but in reality is so much more than this.
The story, roughly, is that Clank, a small robot, has just been made in a robot factory when a spies an infobot (small robotic television screen which displays a short film). The video in the infobot tells him the the Ultimate Supreme Chairman Drek is planning on taking chunks out of every planet in the galaxy in order to create a wonderful paradise planet for his race of blargs, who have unfortunately over-exploited their planet's resources and polluted its atmosphere so that no organic life-form can live there anymore. So Clank escapes from the factory in a spaceship, but is shot down as he nears the planet Veldin.
Meanwhile, Ratchet is putting the finishing touches onto his spaceship, which he made using his trusty Omniwrench 8000, a brilliantly versatile tool which doubles up as a weapon during the game. He hears an odd noise, and looks up to see a smoking, low-flying aircraft zoom down to crash nearby on the Kyzil Plateau of Veldin. He goes to investigate, and Clank tells him all that he has seen, showing him the infobot. Thus begins a crazy adventure stuffed full of varied and original weapons and gadgets.
Key to the game is the collection of nuts and bolts (the currency in Ratchet and Clank's galaxy). These can be used to buy weapons/gadgets/infobots, and sometimes to pay certain people to do what you want (eg. bribing a bouncer to let you into somewhere). Gold bolts can also be collected.
