This game was extremely hyped for psp and has received a lot of praise and positive reviews since. The game offers platforming, shooting, puzzle solving, racing, and plenty of upgrades as incentives to keep playing. However, 5 hours into the game, I can't help but feel let down - everything feels like it needs more polish. To start, the graphics and environments are extremely bland, solid color backgrounds and roads with very few objects or pieces in view. The platforming aspect of the game is done fairly well, with a few issues at gauging distances due to shadows and camera angles. The action combat is done very well, running and dodging is fun, and you have a multitude of weapons each with unique strengths and weaknesses. Different enemy types is fair (about 12 so far). Puzzle solving (at this point of the game) isn't the least bit challenging and is just tedious. Whether you need to run 30 seconds to pick something up (with no action or platforming to keep things interesting) or are individually commanding Clank followers to stand on specific tiles, it just isn't fun. The racing sidequest of the game is 2 stars - uneven terrains and wind factor make your car's movement slightly unpredictable. I tended to do my best to spend most of the race in the air to avoid such obstacles. Also, deaths are excruciatingly punishable - and for the reason all the CPU racers move at a much slower speed then you - as though the game expects you to go from first to last multiple times in a race due to the frustrating nature of some of the courses.

This game fell short for me, it lacked polish in every aspect and the story and short animations tended to pull me right out of the game. If ever I find the will power to push past hour 5 I'll be sure to update this review accordingly, but I just don't see me going back anytime soon when there are so many other great titles out there.

This is the worst Ratchet and Clank game in great series. Not being handled by Insomniac Games really shows in the controls. Especially for the plentiful mini-games which you'll have to do. Of which, are extremely frustrating. Not because they're not fun, but because the controls are awful. Especially for the hover board races that you have to do with Ratchet.

The classic play is great, as usual. However, you'll be tossed into Clank and Ratchet mini-games often. The game is also very linear in comparison to it's console brothers. Which is a big disappointment.

The weapons are pretty good, but weak compared to other entries in the series. As the first handheld excursion it's pretty good and since it's not Insomniac Games making the game, it's surprisingly good. The story is great however and is worth it.

I recommend this to the die hard fans only. Since as an overall product, it's very disappointing.

Graphics are great, game is very playable and entertaining. I like the mini-games within the game and would have liked to see more of them. I would also like to see more of times when you play Clank instead of Ratchet. Overall, an excellent game, definitely one of the best PSP games around, if not the best.

I'm totally hooked! Dec 25 2007
By Daniel Kohlbeck - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display: Sony PSP Fun:   
Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters is an absolutely outstanding game that truly represents the pinnacle of platforming titles. Having been a fan of the genre since the original Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Genesis, I've seen more than my share of titles. The rankings break out for Ratchet and Clank as such (all scores are out of five):

Graphics: 5
For the PSP, the developers did an excellent job of pushing the PSP to its graphical limit. The use of character models, animations, and textures are simply phenomenal. This is just shy of looking just like its PS2 cousin.

Sound: 5
The biggest boon for this game is the use of actual voice acting combined with clearly distinct sounds for each of the weapons. Everything sounds like it just fits and all in all ties together to create a believable atmosphere.

Value: 5
One of the best parts of this game is that you can continue to play it well after you beat the final boss. Not only this, but you can do so keeping all the weapons you've already bought and have the opportunity to buy even better ones! It just adds that extra little bit that seems to be missing in many games today.

Story: 4
A tad weak and unfocused at times, all in all it's still good. You really dive into the story of the Technomites and there's quite a bit of humor along the way.

Overall: 5
This is a great game that all PSP owners should buy. I've dropped a good 15 hours into it myself (which is quite a bit for a platformer) and am still playing. The best part is that it really is a fun game that both kids and adults can enjoy.

My first Ratchet game (sorta) Feb. 19 2008
By M. B Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display: Sony PSP Fun:   
So before I left for Iraq a month ago, my roommate bought a PS3. Along with it he picked up Tools of Destruction along with some other games. I loved watching him play the game. And it was so fun to watch him upgade new weapons and buy new weapons and find new armor. After he beat it, there was even MORE to do now. And I loved it! So I tried the game for maybe an hour from the beginning. Sadly it was the night before I left to come to the sandbox. Because I was HOOKED.

Really wanting to play the game now, I started to look on amazon to see if there was a Ratchet game for the PSP. YES! There was! So, now, I had to buy a PSP also. I went ahead and bought thePSP Daxter Entertainment Pack - Ice Silver and a few games, Burnout, Infected, and of course SIZE MATTERS!!

When the PSP came in (which was only about a week), it arrived with Burnout. I was loving it! Then two days later Ratchet shows up and I couldnt put it down for about a week straight (even though I beat it in about 7 or 8 playing hours...and I was taking my time looking for stuff and completing all the mini games). Right now a friend of mine wont let me play the game because he's basically stolen it and now he's addicted.

I ABSOLUTELY love this game.

PROS:

-The graphics are amazing for such a tiny machine.
-The gameplay is highly addictive (especially if you've never played a Ratchet game before)
-I was scared that the upgrading of weapons would be only in the console versions, but nope..its' here also. LOTS of weapons also.
-Controls are great. I actually switched them around to where the analog stick was mainly for strafing. Also I never really had camera problems. Just use the L and R shoulder buttons and everything will be ok...just like older PSP FPS games.
-Once beaten, you can play it over in Challenge mode to upgrade your weapons even farther, find new armor, and get a new weapons (for 9,999,000 bolts..heh).

Cons:

-To easy. I think I could flown through the game in a couple of hours if I had really wanted to. In Challenge mode, it's still easy, but the bosses seem a LITTLE bit harder.

-The game freezes up...BUT..it's only happend 3 times. Twice on the same boss.

All in all...I absolutely recommend this game if you have a PSP. I'm still new to the PSP, but I can already tell that this is DEFINITELY one of the top games for this system. Do yourself a favor and buy this game.

Great PSP game Feb. 17 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display: Sony PSP Fun:   
This game is definitely one of the best games on psp. Even though it is under the platformer genre, it has many styles of games implemented into the game itself. It's worth the 40 bucks and if I had to buy it again I would. That's how good this game is. I've played MANY psp games (I have the blockbuster pass) and this one ranks very high in my book. The developers did an excellent job and actually took time on this game. What are you waiting for? Buy it now for yourself and everyone you know.

On the PSP, Size really Does Matter Nov. 3 2011
By Winter - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display: Sony PSP Fun:   
The good news is, Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters is a very faithful entry in the Ratchet & Clank Series. The creators didn't try to do anything too outlandish, tamper with the game to 'be different', or strip away any of the PS2 release in order to fit it into the PSP (this may be due to some claims I've read that the PS2 version was a port of this PSP version).

That said, there are severe limitations to this title that all seem to center around having to use a PSP to play it. I love my PSP, don't get me wrong: but this platformer is not easy to wrangle on it. I seem to be constantly suffering from camera problems: slow panning when I call for it, and quick snapping away from the scene when I'm just moving around means that a lot of times I end up having to run away dodging so I can put distance between myself and my opponents and buy some time to get them back in my sights. There is a "strafing mechanic", but heaven help you if you start off at the wrong angle. There is a "snap the camera to center" mechanic, but fumbling for it during combat is awkward.

There is also some difficulty with button-mapping. Jumping, high-jumping with mechanical assistance, and long-jumping use the same button mappings. Trying to time the act of running, tapping the shoulder buttons, and simultaneously hitting the 'X' button can be really difficult--and performing the wrong type of jump can be either frustrating or fatal.

For those reasons, I don't recommend that someone new to Ratchet and Clank start here. Try some of the newer entries in the series to get used to the gameplay, then get ready to have to make some accommodations to do on the PSP what you're used to doing on the PlayStation.

If you're new to Ratchet & Clank, the concept is a simple one: Ratchet is (he thinks!) the last of his kind. He is a whiz with gadgets and mechanics, and from day one of the series he quickly fell into the role of 'Hero', a celebrity status that he seems to enjoy. His sidekick is a clever little robot named Clank. Clank not only helps him figure things out, he serves as some of Ratchet's gadgets, transforming into jetpacks, one-man helicopters, and more. Clank also gets some play-time of his own, too: there are times when you get to navigate him around a smaller-scale world, often enlisting the help of his fellow robots. They live in a sci-fi world where there are plenty of planets to explore and all kinds of interesting life forms, most of whom want to kill you (but a few would settle for a good 3-lap race or two). Dialogue varies from funny to downright hilarious, and there is enough variety in your objectives to keep things from getting boring.

The beauty of the Ratchet & Clank series is that it marries both sides of platform heaven: Ratchet gives you the jumping-action-shooting, while Clank lets you play strategy-maze-puzzle styled areas. As a whole the series is quite fun, and each installment seems to come up with more gadgets and fun things to do than the entire run of Warner Brothers' Roadrunner/Coyote cartoons.

That said, if you're a fan of Ratchet and Clank and you know your way around, you will be pleased to see that the graphics haven't been compromised. Colors are rich and bright and sounds ring out crystal clear. You'll probably get used to the way things work on the PSP, but be prepared for some frustrating reloads in order to get where you're going.

The game is great, the platform isn't Feb. 23 2007
By Reb - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display: Sony PSP Fun:   
I love Ratchet and Clank. My husband got it for me and it's the first video game ever that I got hooked on, couldn't put it down, and have played all of them. I liked Psychonauts because it reminded me so much of Ratchet and Clank. R&C is my gold standard.

Size Matters sadly is lacking. The graphics, game, story line...all that is great. I hate the camera. I hate that I can't see what's behind me without effort. The controls are difficult. Run, R, L, and X at the same time to long jump? If I had four hands, that just might be easy...but I don't! And I don't have big man hands; holding the PSP isn't comfortable to begin with, so trying to hold four buttons is hard. A previous reviewer said the game made him dizzy; I didn't notice that at all, but I did find that holding the PSP and manipulating all the buttons made my hands hurt after awhile.

I hope another PS version comes out; I much prefer playing it on the PS2. This game is like a snack when I want a meal! Give me R&C on PS2!

Edited to add that I've finished the game. After awhile I got used to using the shoulder buttons for the camera and it wasn't so bad, but it does get in the way sometimes, especially during fighting sequences. The weapons are cool, I love the beehive! There was a lot of unnecessary repetition, especially during big boss battles, like the one with the corn field (I don't want to spoil it so I'll wont say who it is with); the parts leading up to the boss fight didn't really need to be done every time I tried to kill the boss. I did find a glitch that made it easy to get lots of bolts so that helped in buying weapons. Overall it's a good game; a little short but definitely makes me want to play the next Ratchet and Clank even more!
