  1. Size Matters just doesn't hold up well on the PS2, and the things that made it a unique experience on the PSP don't quite cut it on the system that the series started on.
  2. 42
    I figured the move to the PS2 would, at the very least, allow for a bit more detail in the bland levels. I could not have been more wrong. Compared to the PSP version, this is a step down -- that's disappointing enough. But compared to other PS2 Ratchet games, it's a sharp kick in the nuts.
  3. Take a game meant for a handheld and put it on the PS2, and all of a sudden every flaw is magnified. [June 2008, p.83]

    really this is not a good game
    so first of all why would you pay60 euro's for a boring gameplay ratchet and clank not even made by insomniac
    the weapons aren't good the gadjets i can't really remeber them that means there really not good and the story really seriously i mean a 7 year old could of have a better idee.
    the ryno issn't special the only special and good thing in the game is the custom armor menu where you can customize your armor but still even then the game is boring
    i would be okay if it costed 5 euro's but not for such a high price
    +:armor customiztion
    -:bad story
    -:bad gameplay
    -:bad character development
    -:high price
    -:boring and doesn't feel like a ratchet and clank game

    I didn't know the game was received so negatively, it's one of the best Playstation 2 games I've ever played! Infact it might be the best one I've ever played. This game is very memorable, I loved it! Full Review »

    This is one hell of a disappointing game making it one of the worst in the series. First of all this is exactly the same thing as the PSP one so if you played that don't waste your time. The weapons are the center piece of this game, there's a huge variety some are great like the lacerators others are just plain bad like the concussion gun. Controls for this game is great especially when using ratchet the shooting mechanics are great the rest are very bad. Skyboard controls are soo frustratingly bad and giant clank is very unresponsive. Although gameplay is good, the camera really stinks and makes the game so frustrating that its very tempting to throw the controller. Single player is very short and multiplayer gets pretty repetitive after a while. The PS2 is old now when compared to the PS3 but the graphics in this game are very bad. Sound and music is similar, sometimes its so annoying that its better to play on mute. The game on the PSP wasn't perfect but that maybe due to the PSP itself, on the PS2 it just makes it worst by far. Full Review »
