Hey, it’s me again, LiLSyKo, and this is my third game review and I am going to hold off the Devil May Cry games and tell about my favorite game since I got my PS2. This game as you can see by is Ratchet and Clank.

Ratchet and Clank is a game with a good story, crazy weapons, and different planets with different scenery. The way Ratchet and Clank met was because Clank was not like other robots. He was small, but intelligent and the factory he was built in had decided to destroy him because he figured out the villain Chairman Drek’s plan. I will get to Chairman Drek later.

So once Clank had this information he had to escape to another planet and he landed on Ratchet’s home planet Veldin. Clank had a problem when he got there because there were other robots that went after him to take him down. The way Ratchet found Clank was how he saw Clank, because he saw the ship crash down so he went to check it out while fighting all the robots with the wrench and bomb glove, but I will get to those later.

Then when Ratchet found him, Clank told him the news about Drek’s plan and they became heroes well known all over the universe and became a dynamic duo by defeating their first enemy, Chairman Drek. Chairman Drek is the villain in the game and his plan was to take a part of a planet off to build his new planet. This reason is because his home planet was such a toxic, smelly, and horrible place that they just could not take it, so he decided to do this. Also with a part of the planet taken off, the planet will just explode and kill anyone on it. So your mission is to try and stop him.

Now that you have the characters, story, and villain to stop it, it is time to tell you about the weapons. The first two weapons you start with are your wrench, which is in every game and the bomb glove which you throw at your enemies to make a little explosion on impact. One of my favorites is the Tesle claw, which shoots lightning at your enemy or enemies. The last weapon is the RYNO, which costs a lot of bolts. What a bolt is used for is practically money to buy new weapons from a vendor or anything that someone offers you for them. If you are wondering what a vendor is used for it, it’s used for buying ammo or, as I said before, new weapons. That is all I can say without spoiling anything and this LiLSyKo saying goodbye.

  3. I just recently played this for the first time. It was a very fun platformer. The best thing about it is the weapons. The combat can be challenging but exciting. I’m looking forward to playing the new Ratchet game whenever I get around to buying a PS3.
