The Top Ten

Ratchet & Clank Up Your Arsenal
This game is flawless. The weapons in this game were the best in the series. The storyline was superb. There were many memorable moments, especially the level when you film an episode of "Secret Agent Clank". All in all, it is the definitive Ratchet ^^ Clank game. If you can only have one, make sure its this one.
In my opinion, what really makes this game stand out is the humor. Seriously, I think this game had the best adult humor ever which clearly shows that you are never too old to play R&C.

The newer games still have funny cutscenes, but they're not the same as the humor in the previous games. I really hope Insomniac continues to make great R&C games with the same humor quality as UYA!
As many others have said, this game has creative characters,
Good weapons, and the sorts. But the thing that makes this better than A Crack In Time (personally) is the sheer nostalgia of the whole game.

Thank you Insomniac, whoever you are.
[Newest]The game is my fondest memory while growing up and it will never be forgotten. Amazing game!

2Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time
I think this is the best game yet, the game play is awesome, the cut-scenes are extremely cool, this game just leaves me speechless.

When I saw the teaser trailer I couldn't believe my eye's. I just had to get this game.
This is the best Ratchet and Clank ever. It has the best weapons, great amour, an engaging story and managed to give Clank a proper part in the game. This game even managed to fix the problems in Tools of Destruction like the ridiculously high nanotech. The only game that could possibly be better is Up Your Arsenel. This game is 10 out of 10
This game not only has great humor, an engaging and memorable story, but also outstanding gameplay that hasn't been replicated by the series since.

There are plenty of new additions such as free spaceship flight and the hoverboots that make it hard to go back to the older games after this one. And, the story is also the best that the series has ever seen, with plenty of memorable characters and some of the most memorable boss fights yet.

Couple that with refined gameplay and some of the best guns that the series has seen, along with a ton of bonus content to explore, and you truly have the best Ratchet and Clank experience available.
[Newest]Best R&C in my opinion
Story, planerts, weapons etc

3Ratchet & Clank 2 Going Commando
Sick game
There were heaps of weapons which were awesome including the best weapon in the series (RYNO II)
This game never will get boring unlike UYA
Each new planet will completely amaze you and entertain you to the max, its just magic
The story was excellent and the longest in the series

I know this is one of my favourites
Most weapons in the series. Most levels in the series. Most mini games in the series. Most bosses in the series.

This game introduced many elements to the series that have become staples such as armor, automatic weapon and health upgrades, arena battles, strafing and a challenge mode with much more extra content than the first Ratchet and Clank game. To this day Going Commando remains to be the game that had the biggest influence on the series.
Definitely the best. While it may not have the story of " A Crack in Time" it has much much better weapons. I had beaten this game 30 times on the same save slot and had 4 billion bolts. I recently acquired "A Crack in Time" and I didn't like the weapons half as much. I also believe that this game makes me want to play back through over and over more than up your arsenal and a crack in time. I also believe that future is 2nd best.

4Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
Its very awesome, great opponents, great weapons and awesome levels =D

From the big Leviathan, to the Robot pirate
My childhood game was Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction. It had a really good story, and was really fun to play. The graphics were just awesome! I could play this game over and over again. definitely my favourite game in the series, and is a game worth to buy!
A gameplay like Up Your Arsenal plus a high graphics that will totally amaze your depth of imagination. Simply the best!
[Newest]Best storyline weapons armour

5Ratchet Deadlocked
I don't know why everyone bashes this awesome game. Deadlocked is just as fun as the previous three games. The story is great, awesome weapons, and a kick ass multiplayer. This should definitely rank among the best!
You might think "It only has 10 weapons?! Lame. " It pulls it off by have the 10 awesomest weapons ever. It's a tad short, but so replayable. I've beaten the game 5 times and I'll beat it a 6th. It is very hard at the hardest level too.


This game adds a spin to the original series while taking out everything annoying in the process. Also anybody who says this game lacks variety has obviously never played it. 5 out of 5 all the way.
[Newest]It's a shame this hidden gem gets such a bad reputation because Sony trusted a bunch of idiots to port a ratchet and clank game AGAIN...

6Ratchet & Clank
Hard choice between 1 and 2. Going Commando had all the great features that come with the sequel to a game (upgradable weapons, more nanotech, Insomniac museum, battle arena, etc. ), but the first game really was classic. The story was the most epic, but what really one me on this one was the levels. Each world was unique and completely different than the one before it. Sheer epicness. Oh, and let's not forget classic Ratchet before he got a personality shift.

I didn't like 3 as much as, well, everyone else seems to. There is no question that it was a great game, but it felt a little cheap to me, mainly in appearance (the menus were sort of ugly and boring, the nanotech got turned into a flat bar, the weapons weren't to great, the worlds didn't compare to the ones in the previous two games).


I like this game the most out of all the Ratchet and Clank games! Well, I haven't played Quest for Booty, Crack In Time, Secret Agent Clank, All 4 One, Full Frontal Assault, and Into the Nexus yet. My No. 2 is Tools of Destruction. Why? I'm old school, meaning I grew up when games were just taking off so the graphics were bad. Back then it didn't matter to us, we wanted a good story. When I played Tools of Destruction the story/gameplay flowed so well I had to stop myself from playing it.
Harmony. This game spells this word in your face in every section with the aid of the music, the graphics, the atmosphere, and the overall story/acting. Once you finish it, you'll feel that good taste in your mouth like: well done, insomniac whoever you are.
[Newest]Can't beat the original!

7Ratchet & Clank Quest For Booty
Loved it but the 2 problems that I had with this game is, 1. Clank is not a playable character, and 2. It's really short, I finished it in 2 and a half hours, but the gameplay, story and graphics are amazing

8Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters
Yet this game isn't made by insomniac I still played it and had a fun time
This was made by the developer who ruined Jak and Daxter. Enough said.
I love this game and I have really nice memories with it.

9Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One
Although this game isn't part of the main series, its still a blast and really fun to play with your friends and family! Me, my little sisters, my cousins and my friends always have a great time playing this game togther! I love it :D
The best co-op game of all time. Whenever you are playing online or with a friend, it always ends up being really funny! The coop is designed of a very enjoyable way, and you will most likely enjoy this game and laugh. Playing with others is really fun~
Multiplayer is fun in this game. However I do miss classic gameplay, but it is cool.

10Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus - Playstation 3
Although Gimmicky, I found this game to be more fun and more interesting than future tools, and still more fun than a crack in time.
Although it is short it is awesome. I love the armor and how you can change it. The upgrades and weapons feel great too.
A game that ties up the future series and still be loads of fun. This is a great way to end a series. even though it was short it made everthing else better then before
