Ratchet and Clank also features a great sound track, each level has its own feel thanks to the music which conveys tensions and creepiness without loosing the light hearted tone of the game. Sounds effects are also great although the sound of collecting bolts can get a little irritating over time. The voice acting is good as is the script with great dialogue.
Ratchet and Clank isn't a difficult game to start out so you will be able to cover quite a lot of ground in a short space of time until the difficulty level starts to increase. Ratchet and Clank is never overly difficult of unfair. When, not if, you run out of health you will start at the last check point you passed through, although check points aren't visible there are lot of them so you will never have to go over too much familiar territory. Ratchet and Clank is also quite a long game, much longer than other games in this genre but it never feels artificially long though.
Insomniac have done a fantastic job on Ratchet and Clank, it balances all the various types of combat with standard platforming action while dodging all the pitfalls and failings of most games in this genre. Anyone looking for an excellent lengthy platformer will find a lot to like, as will shoot'em up fans due to the large range of great and outrageous weapons. Ratchet and Clank is definitely a great platformer in every way, it's also one of the best platform games ever made since the genre went 3D.
