Ratchet & Clank
Ratchet & Clank: Directed by Perelandra Beedles. With Mikey Kelley, David Kaye, Jim Ward, Kevin Michael Richardson. When an evil chairman’s moneymaking scheme puts the entire galaxy at stake, the only ones who can stop him are the unlikely duo of a lone mechanic and a defect war machine but can the galaxy really be saved when the duo can’t get along?
I should point out that I played the remastered version on the PS3, which is slightly better than the PS2 version from my understanding. I purchased a whole collection of Ratchet games back in 2016 for a total of $24, then didn’t play any of them until 2022, so that wasn’t a great use of money, but I’m happy they’re there to be played! This was a fun, if basic, platformer with rudimentary shooting and vehicle mechanics. I say that I like I would expect more from a 20 year old video game, but for what it is, it’s a pretty enjoyable game. The last level though was an absolutely nightmare for me, taking me about 4 or 5 hours with about 50 or 60 tries to actually get it done. It’s completed in three stages and you need to figure out all the various weapons and techniques well before you get into the arena, something I didn’t do because the rest of the game you could just run and gun through nearly everything.
Twitch Playthroughs, the last video is only half of the time I spent on that stupid final level:
