Ratchet & Clank (working title) Gameplay Movie 1

    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

    I've played the previous Ratchet and Clank games, and this is a solid entry into the series. The game may not have the most ideal I've played the previous Ratchet and Clank games, and this is a solid entry into the series. The game may not have the most ideal control scheme, but it gets the job done. I personally had more fun playing Ratchet and Clank on the PSP just for the sheer fact that I could take the game with me anywhere I want. With the previous PS2 game you strapped to a chair by a controller with a cord, but not with Size Matters. The game may be much shorter than the others, that is expected on a portable, and it doesn't matter because the game will pack a punch with fans and newcomers alike. Ratchet and Clank: Size matters is a must have for any PSP owner. Expand

En mi opinión, es el mejor esquema de controles de la saga junto con el Secret Agent Clank debido a que podes desplazarte fácilmente con L y R y disparar a la vez. Personalmente, a mi me resultaba algo incomodo desplazarme lateralmente mientras disparaba y saltaba en los Ratchet And Clank de PS2, PS3 y PS4. El sistema de armaduras me gusta y la música va de la mano con la jugabilidad. Pero los minijuegos son muy aburridos, la historia deja que desear y el juego en si es muy corto. Quitando eso, estamos ante uno de mis Ratchet And Clank favoritos. Totalmente recomendado para los fans de la saga. El factor portátil ayuda mucho. Expand

Я не знаю, как тестировали игру на псп, я проходил ее на вите, но это полный капец - даже с двумя стиками в замесах надо постоянно вертеться, враги откусывает огромные куски хп, даже в хорошей броне, на боссах реально потно - и это, повторюсь, с двумя стиками. Боюсь представить как было больно людям на псп с одним, когда вращение камерой было на триггерах. Тоесть игра по сложности такая же как и на стационарных консолях с куда более удобными геймпадами, а на особенности портатива разрабы попросту забили. Также нет второго ряда у быстрого доступа к оружию и гаджетам, время от времени приходить делать перестановки. И еще нереально бесила гонка на ховербордах - она крайне убого и хреново сделана, постоянно вылетаешь страссы, не понимаешь где вверх, а где вниз, лвлдизайн трасс крайне странен, почему не сделали как в "взрослых" частях - неизвестно. Короче, для ознакомления с возможностями ретчета в портативе можно поиграть, носвоим старшим собратьям игра явно уступает по удобству геймплея. Expand

Occasionally when too much is going on the frame rateIt is a great game that lives up to the ratchet and clank series… most of the time. Occasionally when too much is going on the frame rate slows to a crawl. The sound can become choppy and mistimed. It is prone to freezing entirely, forcing a restart. When it is working properly you will still run into a few segments that are way harder than the rest of the game, and you will be forced to play tedious and repetitive clank mini games. But most of the time, you are destroying everything in sight in the typical ratchet and clank manner. 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.
