On occasion I had to explain the humor when the room was too silent, because some of the jokes were deeper or required previous knowledge.
The plot, however, is perhaps more than most adolescents can understand. Ratchet and Clank, having been split since the previous Tools of Destruction, find themselves working towards very different missions until their paths almost suddenly converge. Ratchet finds another Lombax, his species, and realizes he may be able to save the rest of his kind. Clank finds his family as well, and the purpose of his creation."
