Ranking the Best and Worst of the Ratchet & Clank Series Header

Ratchet & Clank is a PlayStation staple at this point. Ever since the original platformer released in 2002, the duo has been popular mascots for Sony’s gaming brand. After all, their adventures have spanned multiple systems at this point. From the PlayStation 2 to Vita, you can find our favorite robot and Lombax on almost every Sony console.

With over 10 entries in the series, it can be hard to decide which is the best Ratchet and Clank game. We’re up for the task, though, and it made sense to rank the series from best to worst with the upcoming PS4 version out tomorrow (check out our review of it here).

Before we get onto the list, here are a few things to consider. First off, only games released on PlayStation systems were considered for ranking. So that means no Ratchet & Clank: Going Mobile or the iOS runner Before the Nexus. Second, and most importantly, there wasn’t some mathematical formula to come up with this list. It’s all just a matter of opinion.

We hope you enjoyed our look at the Ratchet & Clank series on PlayStation. While some entries are definitely better than others, there really isn’t a bad one in the bunch! That’s quite the accomplishment when you consider how much experimentation Insomniac has done with the series, and the chances they have taken over the past 14 years.

In your opinion, which is the best Ratchet and Clank game? Which is the worst entry in the franchise? Share them in the comments below!
