Great Games and Accessories for the Playstation 2 (PS2) from Gamesbuyer.

Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
If you enjoyed the multiplayer mode in Ratchet & Clank 3 then this is going to be right up your star system. It’s basically Annihilation Nation expanded to make a full game with a proper story mode and both split screen and online multiplayer. It's in the latter mode that Ratchet & Clank really shines.

The lowdown:
Finally shedding any pretence of being a platformer this new game has more in common with Unreal Tournament 2004 than it does Super Mario. Ratchet (Clank really isn’t in it much) has been press ganged into an ultra violent game show where he has to destroy everything in his path in order to pull in the ratings. To help him, he’s got a huge range of customisable weapons and a small pool of vehicles. The single player is perfectly fun on its own but the real draw is the co-operative mode and the online multiplayer with its myriad of different modes and options.

Most exciting moment:
Sitting atop a spider tank and commanding your army of bots to annihilate your best friend online.

Since you ask:
This is actually the fourth Ratchet & Clank game from developer Insomniac Games, who also did the three Spyro the Dragon games for the PSone. .

The bottom line:
Not a “proper” Ratchet & Clank but still a great multiplayer game.

This is one of the best yet - I got it on release date.. and today I'm on the last level - and no I'm not sad just spend a couple of hours a day on it in the evening!
It follows along with the other games. But it's for players who like the guns. Now you "mod" up your guns/weapons with various different things like more ammo capacity and freezing/brain washing (reminds me of the sheepinator!)
The graphics are as splendid as usual.. and the amount of stuff that goes on during Arena matches can make your eyes go a bit fuzzy.. If you remember the challenges in the arena last time then.. it just a bit like that.
But until I got it home that's what I thought it was all going to be about. But although that is good, it isn't you can still wander around, even get out of the landstalker/other ground based cars etc... whenever you want. You still collect bolts. But I'm affraid... NO Golden Bolts hidden away. They do hide some special money things about.. but no collecting really as such.
The best thing is that you can set the difficulty - for one star to five - and at five you need really nimble fingers!
The cutaways (the video story) are as funny as usual.. and even Al (the geek) and Clank are there. There is no playing as clank which is a shame.
So, in conclusion this one is a little for the Grown Ups and less for the little ones - but can be adapted for both.
BTW... the best weapon (like Ryno and Ryno II) is only 2,000,000 bolts... and I've only got about a 1,000,000 so there plenty more to do.
You can play all areas online. And locally via Co-Oprative play.. so if something is a little difficlut you can get a mate to "cover you" and act as a real team... which is all fab..
You get the swingshot, gravity boots, grind boots..

As all the Ratchet and Clank fans watched the comic fall of the robitic super-crazy Dr. Nefarious float away into outer space, they thought that to be the end of the Dinamic duo, but they were all mistaken.I learened of the realese of Ratchet Gladiator in the earlier half of 2005, the details were very sketchy but it confirmed the realese of yet another merciless, wacky ant totaly insane installment of Insoniac's favourite duo.
The absence of "playable" Clank will not be missed as this game makes up for it in excellent graphics, explosive gameplay and a massive payload of amazingly destructive weapons and gadgets. After his victory agaisnt the crazed robotic "genius" Dr. Nefarious, Ratchet is assumes the psition of owner of the Starship Pheonix and the previous owner, Captain Sasha, is appointed the new mayor of Metropolis. After an embarasing flirt festival with Captain Sasha, a misterious ship boardes the Starship Pheonix and takes Ratchet, Clank and nerdy old Al to a shady gamestation in a sector of space called the Shadow Sector where illegal gameshows are produced.
Ratchet is forced to compete in a relentless and somewhat pointless elimination gameshow called "Dreadzone." And thats where the fun begins. As you progress through the game, you will encounter all kinds of enemys and muster the most feared arsenal of weapons in the galaxy. Including rocket launchers, spaceage ball and chains, dual rapid fire blasters, the ryno and MANY more.
The producer and chairman of Dreadzone, Gleeman Vox, is a nasty piece of work but he isn't gonna put you aginst a robot army without the proper set of wheels. Master the destructive capabilitys of 4 carfully desighned vehicles.

Wel, what can i say... Isomaniac have done it again. having just bought the game for my little brother i have found it to be a worthey purchase. From the early levels i have the game to be deeply engriossing and as usual the in move scenes are comical and very rich in animation.
The game itself is by no means a step down from ratchet and clank 3 and it retains many of the elements which has made the ratchet and clank series so popular and admired. it still has an impressive array of weaponary such as the new double pistols and also the ryno II which gives the a high paced feel to it.
althought clank is not present in this game, he wont be missed. the game has brought in a variety of new weaponary and vehicles.
for the first time we see vehicles such as the landstalker beinng used and also two droids that are your sidekicks throughtout the game.
however the best aspect of this game is how weapons are customized. now ratchet's weapons can be customized to how you as a player want to play the gam. if u are a player who goes bullet crazy u can have more ammo capacity while if u are a player who is more tactical in your approcah u can custiomize ur weappon with a freeze ray or morph ray etc. tjhis new aspect to the franchise adds a certain amount of realism to the game and greater control.
dont get em worng however there are still many aspects which are kept from ratchet and clank such as the gravity and grind boots and the infamous ryno, which means it is not a radical breakthrough with the past.
overall this i believe is one of the best platformers in the market right now. so go out and buy it, becuase it is well worth the money
ps. it also has network play and multiplayer play.. soo if by some remote chance u get bored of the single player campaign you can always play witha friend or taking on the rest of the world.
enjoy people
