Ratchet & Clank HD Collection Review | Trendy Gamers

The PlayStation 2 Ratchet & Clank games have sold millions of copies worldwide. That might be surprising if you consider the series follows the exploits of a gun-loving humanoid cat-thing-person and his diminutive robot friend as they travel strange galaxies and combat even stranger foes. No, Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto it’s not. If you were to judge it by its aesthetics alone, the vibrant colours, and cartoon-ish graphics might lead you to believe they are a series of *gasp* kids games made solely to be played by kids. Of course, if you have any passing experience with these games you know this absolutely is not the case (but then you probably don’t need to read anymore reviews and have already bought the collection). Digging just a little bit deeper, it’s easy to see that the Ratchet & Clank games feature some of the best game design and writing seen on the PS2. Thanks to the HD Collection, which includes Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, that’s now also the case on the PS3.

- Trendy Gamers (PS3, Ratchet And Clank HD Collection, The Ratchet & Clank Collection) 9/10

These are some of my favorite PS2 games, and one of my favorite video game franchises

Quark is probably one of my most favorite video game characters.

I started playing the first Ratchet and Clank, and I love these remakes just as much as the PS3 games. This is a fantastic collection!
Sizzon  +   741d ago
Fantastic collection, my favourite Ratchet & Clank game from that collection is Going Commando, but overall it's A Crack in Time.
Relientk77  +   741d ago
Going Commando is also my favorite from the original 3, although Up Your Arsenal is amazing too, its close. A Crack in Time is fantastic as well, that's what I am waiting for, the next Ratchet & Clank game that stays to the original formula (not like All 4 One, and Full Frontal Assault. Although FFA isnt bad I played the beta)
Sizzon  +   741d ago
Oh yeah Up your arsenal is awesome aswell :)

Okey nice :) Full frontal assault seems pretty good, I have to check it out later now after the disappointment that was All 4 One :(

Never played this, with all my years. Must buy for me

You won't be disappointed.

I confirm ! Really money worth !
Very fun games, beautiful graphics despite the age and 12+ hours for each.

$30 well spent

$30 on Amazon? Wow, and I was going to push this purchase a bit far off, but I guess not lol
TrendyGamers  +   741d ago
$30 everywhere, it's a really good deal.

And you get the Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time demo.

A collection like this? It's hard not to argue with the price point.
Cajun Chicken  +   741d ago
Loving this collection. "Just one more planet.", I say. "Whoops, just went through half the game."

Can't wait for Gladiator HD.

"I just need a few thousands more bolts," "I just have to grab one more skill point," "I just need to grind out one more level on my gun."

This series is really bad for that--I have a hard time putting it down.

I am going through the game now. I finished the first game and am about to complete the second. I kind of went backwards and played the Future series before the originals. So far they are awesome.
rolandfurious  +   741d ago
Aside from the PSP games, I would say the first Ratchet and Clank is the weakest in the series. That's really only because each game managed to be an improvement upon the last. Considering how good the first one is, that's a pretty damn good indication of the quality.
