Best Ratchet & Clank Games


The Top Ten

1 Ratchet & Clank Up Your Arsenal

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!

Maybe it's just because this is the first one I've played, but none of the other Ratchet and Clanks I played compared to this one. It was very humorous and had the best set of weapons yet. It is a must play for the Ratchet and Clank series!

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.

I loved this game. It's a must in the series.

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

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 is GOOOD

3 Ratchet & 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.

Man, I love this series! But Going Commando for me was the best one! Immersive world with excellent detail, introducing upgrades to weapons, great humor and the list goes on and on... And while almost every Ratchet and Clank game contains all these pros, the thing that makes this one stick out to me, is well... The sheer amount of content! Seriously the world's are big but not so big you can easily get lost, the weapons don't take a millennium to level up, there are more planets and weapons in this one than in any other, in my opinion this one is just the most replayable out of the rest. I own every Ratchet and Clank title, with the exception of Quest for Booty and Secret Agent Clank. Simply put, this one just gives you the most bang for your buck.

4 Ratchet & 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!

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

5 Ratchet Deadlocked

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

Better than FToD, because: weapons. I was really underwhelmed by the weapons in Future Tools of Destruction, which is ironic considering it's title. They just failed to satisfyingly destroy things fast enough, and combat was ultimately a slog. Deadlocked, on the other hand, is pure combat joy, unadulterated mayhem-destruction-domination. I think this game gets unfairly overlooked because it does not fall into the tried and true gameplay formula. But that is actually its strength.

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.

This game is so hard! Loved every moment of it though. I played tools of destructin 1st and crack in time second however the game wher I felt like the storuy was best is this one. I'm not that much of a fan of chosen one stuff (yet I like starwars and lord of the rings). I am currently playing going commando. So I can't imput much but what I can say is that I love this game. The new universe is a breath of fresh air and I love that consumerism is the enemy. This game transends the gap between young and old with hidden messages that both will apreaceate. I love the game so much and shows that old games are the hardest and yet still brilliant. The villain is brilliant and shows the curruption of capitalism. Love this game so much.

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.

8 Ratchet and Clank (2016)

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.

Very nice game

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 found this game good funny and interesting game to play.

10 Ratchet 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.

Best game I've ever played

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

I will always play this classic video game.

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

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

I happy it has UYA, GC,and the first one that very great.

15 Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked & Loaded

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: Gladiator

The North America version is Deadlocked.

18 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

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.
