One day, Ratchet, a Lombax (yellow, human-like creature), witnesses a spaceship crash on his home planet of Veldin. The ship was piloted by Clank, a small robot, who had escaped from his home planet Quartu, shortly after his creation, as he discovers the horrible truth of evil plans to destroy the galaxy by Chairman Drek, whose home planet is so polluted and uninhabitable that he forms a cunning plan to extract chunks of existing planets in order to create a new 'superplanet'. When Clank shares this information with Ratchet, Ratchet agrees to help Clank take down Drek, fuelled by a lifelong desire to go an interplanetary adventure to follow his idol Captain Qwark. Flying from planet to planet, Ratchet and Clank build up an incredible arsenal of weapons in the hope of catching up and taking down Drek. However, he soon discovers that Drek intends to destroy Ratchet's home planet, Veldin. Will Ratchet and Clank stop Drek before it's too late?

The Ultimate Space-Age Adventure
1 August 2003 | by (Miami, Florida) – See all my reviews

I can't believe that I'm the first person to comment on Ratchet & Clank. This is one of the greatest adventurous challenges to land on Earth. Ratchet & Clank is actually a funny, action adventure where you must save the galaxy from the scoundrel, Chairman Drek and his robotic crew. Ratchet & Clank join together to stop this evil madman. This is nothing compared to Jak and Daxter. Ratchet & Clank has everything, it's not too long, there's an enormous set of weapons and gadgets to choose from such as the Blaster, the R.Y.N.O (Rip Ya a New One), the Glove of Doom, etc. Your challenges in the game are surely competitive such as the Alien Queen, the Snagglebeast, Captain Qwuark, and of course, Chairman Drek himself. Your weapons and your strageties help you survive the game and your choice to start over again. My friend beat the game FOUR TIMES!!. I'm getting close to beat it for the first time. My first "owned" video game and my only for now. I'm getting my hands on Ratchet and Clank 2: Locked and Loaded first. It may be difficult at first, but with determination, you'll become pro in no time! Plus, there's a hoverboard race! Ratchet and Clank is all thanks to Insomniac Games. Thank you Insomniac!! Bring on the sequel!! Ratchet and Clank has amazing graphics with amazing environments in many different planets. The fun factor is a 10!! Ratchet and Clank is one of my favorite teams alongside Sora, Donald, & Goofy (Kingdom Hearts).
