Game Revolution: Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters Review

Game Revolution writes: "Size Matters is an "enhanced" port of last year's little hit of the same name for the PSP, but the results fall short of the claims. Graphics are usually one of the last things I judge a game on, but the dull textures and blocky models of Size Matters have all the visual intimidation of a NERF blaster. Obviously, something got lost in the move from the wonder-screen of the PSP to 42 inches of plasma.

I switched the game to progressive-scan, fiddled with the TV's settings, and pulled out my faithful standard set. Nothing made the game look any better. I loaded up the original Ratchet & Clank from 2002 for the sake of comparison, and it was as beautiful as ever. Graphics aren't the only thing taking a hit in the downsize (upsize?), either. Size Matters is a respectable game in its own right, but it can't quite get out of the shadows of its older PS2 siblings. Just think of it as the Stephen Baldwin of the Ratchet & Clank family."

+ Compelling plot
+ Weapon power-ups
+ Unlockable overdoes
- Bland graphics
- Skyboarding... never again
- It's all been done... and better.
