Given that this is supposedly Clank's first solo mission you would think the game would revolve around him, but he is only the biggest piece that you play as. Throughout the game you will play as Ratchet, Clank's Gadgebots and even Captain Quark in what amounts to side missions you can choose from after the initial one for each character.
When you play as Clank you generally play the same way you have with the other games in the series, but there are three sections that pop up multiple times that make a first appearance here. The first is when Clank goes into a rhythm-based mini-game during a level. This usually revolves around laser security, but you follow the on-screen button prompts, including holding buttons down, in order to make it through the section. If you make mistakes, Clank is hurt a bit and as long as you don't drop to 0 in life points during these sections you're golden. However if you aren't good at rhythm-based play you could become very frustrated by this and have to go through multiple times."
-Graphics are good for a PSP game
-The voiceovers, as always, are excellent
-The Captain Quark side missions
-Same basic series gameplay is here, with some additions that you may or may not like
-Ratchet's arena levels are hard
-The rhythm sections really bothered me, but I did get through them
-Watching as I fail yet again at a rhythm section
