Ratchet and Clank, a series I hold very dear to my heart, and one of the three great platformers of the Playstation 2 days (the others being Jak & Daxter and Sly Cooper). The original game was the very first guide I have ever written! There have been many sequels, spanning many systems, appearing on the PS2, PS3, PSP and even the Vita. It’s about time that the Playstation 4 has received the graces of the titular heroes, who run, gun and jump their way across the universe in order to save it from the evil doers.
In order to tie in to the upcoming feature film, Sony and Insomniac have decided to make a reimagining of the first game. There are a lot of elements that stay the same from the original, but there are some new ones, too, including at least one new boss, and even a new weapon or two. It was released on April 12, 2016 in North America and on April 22, 2016, in Europe.
The story is a reimagining of the first game’s plot, as told by the "hero," Captain Qwark, who is telling his side to a convict in prison. After meeting up with his little mechanical buddy, Ratchet is helping him reach the Galactic Rangers HQ in order to tell of Alonzo "Chairman" Drek’s nefarious plans of raising an army of warbots (not that Nefarious, although he is in the game, too). This will send them on a perilous journey throughout the Solana Galaxy to try and save it from evil.
In addition to the main narrative being covered, you will also find sections detailing the many locations of the collectibles in the game, which include the 28 Gold Bolts and RYNO Holocards. The guide will also contain step-by-step instructions on how to get every single Trophy for the title, earning you the elusive Platinum Trophy coveted by many gamers. Come join us on the amazing adventure in this reimagining of a timeless PS2 classic!
