2 Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time

This is the best in my opinion, The trailers and teasers gave me goose bumps.

I loved the storyline the most out of them all, it has brilliant graphics and it can get so emotional, I wish I could cry over the scenes because I thought they were that good.

Gameplay is unique, you don't just play through the story and start over again... No, once your ship has been fixed by the Zoni you are free to explore the sector which will contain a whole bunch of things to do such as the several moons scattered across each sector and each moon has its own challenge weather your looking for more Zoni or a gold bolt and so on and how you obtain them has some variety as well. Or you can operate space missions to earn more bolts or just destroy some asteroids. There are plenty of weapons and you can even customize the starter weapons (combuster, fusion grenade, shotgun) and make them different colours and behave differently. The game also features some cool ways of getting from a to b ...more

Best story and graphics and design and just so much open-world ness. Almost forgot I wasn't in a space fur ball version of Grand Theft Auto

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

3 Ratchet & Clank 2 Going Commando

Everything about this game is excellent. Good graphics(for it's time), very good storyline, good gameplay and by far it has the best levels.

One of the games I would play instead of sleeping when I was a kid... it's so good!

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

The plot twist of this game is just just... wow.

4 Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

I love the design, the bosses, the planets and I lot of other things.

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!

5 Ratchet Deadlocked

Just simply the best. Played more than half and the only one just as close is Up Your Arsenal. The co-op mode was the best thing they ever made and the mods, baby!

Ratchet & Clank on steroids! High octane mayhem throughout. This game is unique in the series, and I think it should be ranked as one of the very best. The weapons are great and the upgrade options are fantastic. Wielding the Scorpion Flail with reckless abandon against hordes of enemies has to be one of the most satisfying things ever. Deadlocked has a different formula from the rest, but that also makes it fresh and very exciting to play. This should be in the top three.

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!

Outstanding game outstanding I say, hard when I played it as a kid but I agree it's a bit short but very re-playable lost count of how many times I played it it's awesome by the way all 4 one is a bit of an disappointment

6 Ratchet & 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). - djh101

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.

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.

Absolutely amazing games, this was my childhood in a nut shell. This started everything off and laid the foundations for the entire series. I didn't enjoy 2 as much, not sure why really, 3 is my second favourite behind this one.

One thing I will say though, this is my own opinion but I think the original trilogy, 1, 2 & 3, are much better than the newer ones, Ratchet & Clank future.

The new remake/reboot on the PS4 is excellent, it mixes all the best things from the original trilogy and blends them perfectly. A great series through and through, well worth a purchase

7 Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters

Yep yep! This is the first game I've ever played in the whole Ratchet & Clank series. The soundtrack is so nostalgic that made me play the game again.

Yet this game isn't made by insomniac I still played it and had a fun time

I love this game and I have really nice memories with it.

This game is amazing and still is with the perfect weapon balance and perfect gameplay experience - ItzPhantasy

8 Ratchet and Clank (2016)

Very nice game

It's everything I loved about the first game, and more! I had an absolutely great time while playing this, and it managed to make itself more than just a great remake, more than just a great movie tie-in, but a great, fun game.

It is goof to have this game back. A nice remake of the first ratchet & clank but still got the nice extra upgrades from the newer once, such as tools of destruction and a crack in time.

Awesome game. It was what the series needed the only reason why it is low on this list is because it has only been out a week.

9 Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus - Playstation 3

It was an completely incredible game from what I have heard and seen of it although I do not currently own it I have heard it is an awesome gravity shifting amazing graphics overall incredible game other than the lack of length

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.

I like this game, but the story of this game really sucks... The weapons are pretty creative, but I didn't really like the game... 6,5/10

10 Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One

Best game I've ever played

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.

The Contenders

11 Ratchet & 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

So Flipping good! I got this when the 'Welcome Back' deal was on, and I never had a problem with the replayability or the length (i was only little, I dug bite-size games). Plus, it was my first in the series, so it will always have a place in my heart

12 Secret Agent Clank

It could be better, I thought it was going to be like daxter but it isn't

I thought it was very fun and creative

13 Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault

This game makes the series look bad.

The graphics looks Amazing. This was my fist game. Multiplayer make it more hard. but also about defending your base.

14 Ratchet & Clank Collection

Guys this is the trilogy all in one

All three of the original ratchet and clank games in one. enough said - swagpolice

I will always play this classic video game.

Well it is a collection in HD. The games are fun.

15 Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked & Loaded

North America version is Ratchet and clank: going commando so if your from there vote for that

Awesome best game ever. I loved it and it was great.

Ratchet & Clank: Stripped & Loaded

16 Ratchet and Clank: Before the Nexus

... That's all I have to say.

Great game,it brings all the fun of Ratchet and Clank to the mobile game world.

17 Ratchet & Clank: Going Mobile

Please oh please

It is a 2d nothing like th rest piece of crap game and I'm pretty sure its actually free and if it isn't it's a rip off

18 Ratchet: Gladiator

The North America version is Deadlocked.

19 Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force

I'm pretty sure the North America version is full frontal assault so I don't know about this

Q-Force is brilliant! Sure, it ain't QfB or CiT but me and my couch partner have a hell of a lot of fun playing it, and it is better then both PSP, iOS and most vita ports.
