Imagine,one of The Most Memorable Game of all time in the Very powerful Handheld! I thank the Mass Media (Of course Insomniac too) because they gave us their Best to play the Ratchet and Clank Collection to Ps Vita.They made this for new players and for those players since 2002 to play in Modern Era. And for those Haters,please don't read this Review .And don't play R&C Collection if you don't Like,and don't leave any Bad Comment if you not Experience to play This Game! R&C Rules! Fans since 2002 :-)… Expand

I've played all 3 and the framerate is identical to the ps3 and ps2 versions. The graphics are better than ps2 or around the same level, the first game already had input lag before the vita version, but now the second has some slight input lag, the third controls absolutely flawlessly. Half of the cutscenes are low-res and not fullscreen, which sucks, but the games are still just as fun as before, and you can plug in earphones to hear the awesome music better now. So yeah, three great games, the rare glitch here and there, no framerate issues, great graphics and at least 100 hours of gameplay; worth the purchase.… Expand
Jul 31, 2014Ratchet & Clank has never had that 'console emulation' on a handheld. Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters on the PSP was close, but the absence ofRatchet & Clank has never had that 'console emulation' on a handheld. Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters on the PSP was close, but the absence of arenas and a second joystick definitely held it back. Secret Agent Clank was a completely different kind of game altogether, and Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault (Q-Force)'s PS Vita debut was less than stellar. Much less.
But all of that has changed, now that the Ratchet & Clank Collection is on the PS Vita! I'm going to list information, pros, cons, and my overall notes and thoughts to help you decide wither or not you should be interested in this portable collection.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
The Ratchet & Clank Collection consists of:
-Ratchet & Clank
-Ratchet & Clank 2: Going Commando (Locked and Loaded)
-Ratchet & Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal
These are the first 3 Ratchet & Clank games for the PS2 developed by Insomniac Games (and ported by Mass Media).Currently, there is no physical release for the game in North America. However, the entire trilogy costs 3.3GB, which isn't too bad as long as you've already gotten over those rediculous PS Vita memory card prices.
The Physical Version of this game sold in certain regions consists of a gamebreaking bug in Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked and Loaded, be warned.
Oh,and the PS Vita port of Ratchet & Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal is lacking any sort of multiplayer functions from the PS2 version, which really sucks if you were expecting your multiplayer fix on the PS Vita.
-Lack of Multiplayer Mode for R&C3: UYA*
-Some Sound Effects are poor quality. (Things like Ratchet's gameplay voice clips)
-Occasional Music Track skipping
-Rear Touch Pad can cause awkward controls*
-Slight Input Lag (most notible for the first game)*
-SOLID 30fps (Like the Sly Cooper Collection on PS Vita)*
-More polished than the PS3 Collection (PS3 Collection Ported by Idol Minds)*
-The Color looks the same as it did on PS2 (Unlike the PS3 Collection which had washed out colors)
-Custom Soundtrack (You can listen to the music downloaded on your PS Vita during gameplay)*
-Menus have correct touch commands
-Modified textures for handheld convenience
-Strong Battery Life (I played R&C3 UYA for close to 5 hours straight and still had more than half my battery available. (I own the OLED 3G model)*
-No black tansition screens (Make the game's presentation feel much faster)
(* = Strong Points)
THOUGHTS & OPINIONS:
Since the PS2 & PS3 versions of these games ran at 60fps, the framerate may through you off at first, but you get used to it fast. Speaking of getting used to things, after playing Ratchet & Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal for a few hours, I was using the Rear Touch Pad instinctively with no issues. (Hours).
Another thing worth mentioning is, I absolutely love playing on Annihilation Nation with music from my PS Vita, Custom Soundtrack really is an overlooked feature.
And again, the lack of any physical release kept me sore, and I do hope Sony reconsideres one later down the road. The Ratchet & Clank Collection on PS Vita is less glitchy, but also less quality than the PS3 version. You're also walking around with 3 of the greatest games ever in your pocket, and I don't think I'll be going back to the PS3 Collection any time soon.
The Ratchet & Clank Collection on PS Vita may have a few issues, but nothing you won't get used to after playing for a while. I'd give it an 8.6/10… Expand

Mass media did a good job this time, makes up for the mistake that was the jak and daxter collection.… Expand
Aug 10, 2014I have this collection on PS3 and i always loved ratchet. If you want the best quality possible you should play it on PS3, but i think youI have this collection on PS3 and i always loved ratchet. If you want the best quality possible you should play it on PS3, but i think you should also consider this game for vita. Sure the graphics aren't clean as in PS3 version but the action is still furious and the framerate is solid. Compared to jak collection, this one is much better done although not perfect.
So if you want to have some fun on the go, give this one a try, i think you will not regret it. It still got that ratchet and clank charm from the old days.… Expand
