Scott Jones reports:
''Each time I think I'm over the Ratchet & Clank games, somehow, some way, they pull me back in.
The driest character in all of videogame-dom -- the ever-resourceful Swiss Army knife/robot known as Clank -- is the star of the show this time in this PSP-only endeavor (though, if history has taught us anything, it's that these PSP-only titles usually get a PlayStation 2 port within a few months).
The game gets off to a terrific start, doling out a big, dynamic environment to explore: a just-plundered museum. (Minor spoiler: It was apparently plundered by, of all people, Ratchet. Let the intrigue begin!) The emphasis in the game's early going is, curiously, on stealth tactics. Ratchet, looking quite sharp in a tuxedo, must find a way through a gauntlet of flashlight-wielding security bots, mechanical guard dogs, and lasers in order to gather clues about Ratchet's involvement in the plundering.''
