Ratchet and Clank
Ratchet & Clank is a third-person action platformer, and a re-imagined of the original game first published in 2002 for the PlayStation 2, with improved visuals and added cut-scenes. Players control Ratchet during the largest portion of the game during platforming and action sequences, while at other times controlling Clank to solve environmental puzzles, while also performing races in the form of hoverboards, and aerial combat in spaceships. Players can acquire and upgrade an assortment of weapons gadgets.
Ratchet is working as a mechanic when he encounters a warbot who escaped a factory. Naming him Clank, Ratchet agrees to assist the warbot in warning the Galactic Rangers of the army of warbots being created.
The re-imagined 2016 Ratchet & Clank received positive reviews with an average score of 83%, praised for its visuals, environments, gameplay, and overall fun.
This is a low 2-star rating. The game is not particularly difficult, especially if you select to play on Easy mode. At least two playthroughs are required, and there are collectibles to find. While a few hoverboard races may prove tricky for some, they are not too difficult for any average gamer. Overall, Ratchet & Clank is a reasonably straight-forward game that just requires a little time.
Expect roughly 20-25 hours for the Platinum, depending on how much more you need to play after your two playthroughs.
You'll need to do 2 playthroughs for the Platinum: one regular, and a second on Challenge Mode.
For your first playthrough, feel fre to select Easy mode, as there are no difficulty-related trophies. Also, you needn't worry about the collectibles right now, as they'll be easier to find in your second playthrough with the Map-O-Matic, if you wish to avoid backtracking.
However, be mindful of the four misable trophies. These include the Safecracker trophy for completing all 16 Trespasser puzzles without using AutoHack (these can be backtracked to, as long as you avoid hitting the Square button to AutoHack), the Not My Job trophy for allowing the extermibots to kill 35 amoeboids in Rilgar, the When Sheep Fly trophy for sheepinating a Blarg helicopter commander, and the Death By Disco trophy.
Regarding the Death By Disco trophy, you'll need to use the Groovitron on all 48 types of enemies, so use it as often as possible. Your progress will carry over in the Challenge Mode playthrough, allowing for a second chance with any missed enemies.
Finally, make sure to spend time leveling up those weapons to unlock the Master Of War trophy, to save time on farming later.
After your first playthrough, it's time to do it again on Challenge Mode. All your stats and collectibles will carry over, with the exception of story-related items. This is your chance to mop-up any missing trophies from your last playthrough, so be sure to check out the Ratchet and Clank trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you're missing, and their requirements.
Completing the game on Challenge Mode will unlock the Challenging trophy, and hopefully the Platinum if you've followed this roadmap.
