Join space mechanic Ratchet and his robot pal Clank on a platform adventure that spans multiple worlds. A greedy race of aliens called the Blarg has ruined its own planet and now seeks to build a new homeworld, by stealing the choice parts of other inhabited planets and destroying the rest. The game features team-oriented play in which the heroic duo must combine their assets to overcome obstacles and defeat enemies, reminiscent of the recent Jak & Daxter or Rare's classic 1998 N64 game Banjo Kazooie.
Though Clank usually rides on Ratchet's back, the little robot is crucial to the pair's success. He can be upgraded to give Ratchet new abilities, such as more powerful weapons, or the ability to access new areas by jumping farther and gliding through the air. The game is also notable for its RPG-style character development, as Ratchet uses cash he and Clank earn to purchase from a selection of equipment which will enhance important skills and bestow new powers. Ratchet & Clank is by Insomniac Games, developer of the popular Spyro the Dragon series. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
