Ratchet and Clank is one of the most charming and captivating games today. It is a series of action-oriented video games that have an entertaining science fiction theme. It was developed and created by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Computers Entertainment for various PlayStation consoles such as PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 4, and the PlayStation Portable.
Ratchet and Clank is so popular that there’s an upcoming movie that’s based on the first game and featuring big stars including Sylvester Stallone.
This highly entertaining and addictive game has a great story. It follows the story of Ratchet, a Lombax. He was born in Polaris Galaxy but he was later sent to Planet Veldin by his father to protect him from the evil Emperor Tachyon. While growing up in Veldin, Ratchet dreamt of travelling to different worlds. Because of this, he built a ship. After completing his ship, he met a fugitive robot named Clank in a crash site. Clank encouraged Ratchet to fulfill his dreams of travelling to different worlds. Ratchet vowed to help Clank in defeating an alien race leader named Chairman Drek. Clank served as the ignition system for Ratchet’s ship and the two began to travel across different worlds in the quest for a planet ranger named Captain Qwark. Clank believes that only Captain Qwark can defeat Chairman Drek.
The charming Captain Qwark trains Ratchet to become a hero. However, it was revealed later on that Captain Qwark actually works for Chairman Drek. Ratchet has always had doubts about Captain Quark and so he blames Clank for being naïve and too trusting. Clank and Ratchet had a fight, but in spite of their differences, they continue to work together to defeat Blarg. After winning against the evil forces of Chairman Drek, Ratchet and Clank went home together and tried to repair their broken friendship.
