Ratchet & Clank (working title) Gameplay Movie 1

    A port it may be, but this game is strong enough to stand on its own two feet as an essential PS2 title. You owe it to your trusty PS2 to check this game out. [Apr 2008, p.66]
  2. If you pair that up with the weak gameplay and the obvious graphics and controls downgrade, you will realize this PS2 port just can't be compared to its Ratchet & Clank PS2 predecessors or the stellar PS3 game, Tools of Destruction.
  3. PSM3 Magazine UK

    Visually, what might have looked quite adequate on the small screen looks slightly old and tired on the bigger console. [June 2008, p.68]
  4. 60
    Ultimately, size does matter - but only to the point where bigger is not always better and certainly no substitute for convincing gameplay.
  5. This port of the PSP game fares poorly on the PS2 and claims the title of worst Ratchet & Clank game available for the aging console.
  6. If you’ve played this on the PSP, there’s no reason at all to pick it up on the PS2. Even if you haven’t played it before, it’s hard to recommend.
  7. Playstation: The Official Magazine (US)

    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]

    Worst Ratchet and Clank of them all. The camera has you looking at the sky or the ground if you get near a wall, enemies take half your life Worst Ratchet and Clank of them all. The camera has you looking at the sky or the ground if you get near a wall, enemies take half your life with one hit and the weapons are really lame. I wish I had not spent the $5 to rent it.

    Though Size Matters still has some time consuming gameplay and variety of gadgets and weapons, it's just far too similar to the PSP version inThough Size Matters still has some time consuming gameplay and variety of gadgets and weapons, it's just far too similar to the PSP version in all the wrong ways, such as its nearly hideous graphics, generic gameplay, and nothing but bland level design.

    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
    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
