The quiet, robotic half of Sony's bolt-busting duo finally gets a chance to let his metal muscles shine in Secret Agent Clank. When his Lombax friend gets framed for a crime he didn't commit, Clank dons his finest tuxedo and goes into full cloak-and-dagger mode. Though the frantic combat and bolt-gathering aspects of the series continue, Secret Agent Clank introduces a new stealth element that also finds players avoiding searchlights and dipping in and out of shadows. The franchise's gadget-heavy weaponry also gets a stealthy, James Bond-esque twist, as Clank can now unleash cufflink bombs, a bow-tie boomerang, and an ink-shooting pen to blot out surveillance cameras. If gamers can deftly execute a quick time event, Ratchet's clandestine comrade can also dish out some severe punishment in the form of stealth takedowns. From the same High Impact Games crew that developed Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters, Secret Agent Clank offers fans of the series their first chance to play primarily as Clank, though gamers also get a few opportunities to control Ratchet and the cowardly Captain Quark. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
