Bad Guy Wins writes: "Another year, another 'Ratchet & Clank' game. At one point in time, (a pun perhaps?) the series was a fresh alternative to the Mario's and Sonic's out there because of its interesting mixture of platforming and run n' gun action. Since it comes from Insomniac, it was also like an improved second coming of Crash Bandicoot, a once famous Playstation mascot that got lost along the way. That was before Insomniac started shoving these games down our throats as if a single year will cease to function without another iteration in the series. Since the first game was released in 2002, there have been 9 games set in the 'Ratchet & Clank' universe, spanning the PS2, PSP and PS3."
