1UP Reviews Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters

1UP writes: "When I reviewed the PSP version of Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters, I had plenty of complaints. The game, while solid enough, was so rife with technical problems that it proved a serious disappointment to this Ratchet fan. So when I got the opportunity to review the PS2 version, I was excited. I figured the reintroduction of the second analog stick would make the persistent camera problems go away and fix the inconsistent control issues. I figured that would smooth out the difficulty, making it easier to take on the hordes of enemies that swarm near the end of the game, and harder to suffer cheap death that comes from the occasionally poor level design. I figured the move to the PS2 would, at the very least, allow for a bit more detail in the bland levels.

I could not have been more wrong. Compared to the PSP version, this is a step down -- that's disappointing enough. But compared to other PS2 Ratchet games, it's a sharp kick in the nuts".

This is something to be expected. I highly doubt it is within their budget to really overhaul these PSP titles for the ps2 anyway. I'm not too sure why they are porting them over anyway... that never really made sense to me. The PSP to PS2 ports just aren't as good.

Still, I guess this should keep fans who didn't play the PSP one for whatever reason happy.

as a person who doesn't own a PSP but owns a PS2 I love these PS2 ports. Granted I haven't bought any of them but I might just pick up Silent Hill: Origins.

If MGS: Portable Ops or GoW: CoO were ever to come I would most def pick them up with no hesitation. Well that's a lie 40 bucks is a bit much for last-gen title. 20$ = no hesitation, 30$ = will think about it.
