    For the last two titles, the developers of Ratchet & Clank have done a wonderful job building full-featured multiplayer support into their games. Size Matters is arguably the best attempt to date. Although it only supports four players at a time, the maps and modes are meticulously built to wring the most out of multiplayer matches.
  2. The trademark humor, outrageous weapon designs, and unforgettable cast of characters appear to be stripped straight from Insomniac’s portfolio. Which is not to say, however, that High Impact is simply connecting the dots that Insomniac has laid out.
  3. Aside from the teeth-grinding frustration of the races, this is a rewarding and varied pleasure. It's also wondrous to look at with crisp, vivid landscapes and lively enemies bursting with character. The final clincher is the excellent multiplayer options.

    Not small and not perfectly formed, but packs a wicked punch. Accomplished, but stops short of brilliance. [May 2007, p.60]
  5. Yet again, the lack of dual analog sticks is a huge problem for a PSP game, mainly because Size Matters attempts to emulate its big brother instead of forging out on its own. Even so, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better platformer, or any platformer, released this year.

    The imagination present in the levels is striking and the game is crammed with charming details, from the likeable characters and the exceptionally pretty cut scenes that bookend the gameplay to the satisfying swing of Ratchet's ratchet and the atmospheric music.

    Stages are smaller and battles are often less intense but Size Matters makes up for the shortfall in calibre with a visual imagination that, for the first time, makes a Ratchet & Clank games feel like an actual adventure instead of a sequence of shootout-corridors threaded along a necklace of planets. [Apr 2007, p.88]

Even though this one isn't developed by Insomniac themselves, High Impact manages to make this game indistinguishable from Insomniac's offerings. The graphics are nothing short of amazing on the console, besting even it's PS2 counterparts in some respects. The controls may take some getting used to (after all, this is a whole new system they're developing for, but after 10 minutes, the controls become second nature. The weapons are as insanely genius as ever. If you have a PSP, this game is a must-own title. Expand

    This game has so much good things and has put the Ratchet and Clank universe a beautiful place looking like something from a Saturday morningThis game has so much good things and has put the Ratchet and Clank universe a beautiful place looking like something from a Saturday morning cartoon and the cut-scene when Otto meets Ratchet is absolutely great and graphics are excellent by the standard. The only con is the camera because of the centering. Expand

(keep in mind my weapons are maxed with all mods) Expand

The controls are clunky, the camera is awkward most of the time, the enemies are bullet sponges, and all boss fights are based on that as well -- it takes a stupid amount of ammo and time to drain their health -- so little to no actual challenge.

    I really enjoyed the other games in the series, but Size Matters is so bad I hate it.
