One year after R&C success, Insomniac Games achieves R&C : Going Commando, considered as the best single experience in R&C series by most of the fans. Some major and new features are integrated, which take the experience to a higher level. One of those features is the upgradable arsenal which allows the player to make his weapons evolve significantly. Ratchet is now able to wear nano-armors that enhances his health and become more and more resistant to ennemies' attacks. The more you destroy and kill, the more powerful your arsenal and armor become. Gameplay has been improved and Ratchet moves more fluidly ; it also showcases a huge variety, with tons of mini-games, some space combats and even spherical worlds. Graphics and soundtrack prove to be better and following players' requests Clank now plays a more important part in the gameplay.R&C : GC eventually appears to be not only more ambitious and funnier but also longer than the first game, which makes it an absolute must-have. Who said once again ?
R&C : GC opens up not too long after the end of the original game. The two heroes are still basking in the afterglow of their heroic efforts and doing what any self-respecting celebrities would do: making the rounds on the interview circuit. The pair is contacted by Abercrombie Fizzwidget, the CEO of Mega Corp--the leading corporation in the nearby Bogon galaxy--who asks them for some help. Apparently, one of Mega Corp's experimental projects, the Proto Pet, has been stolen by a mysterious thief named Angela Cross, and Fizzwidget is anxious to get it back. As luck would have it, the act of corporate thievery endangers more than just Mega Corp's profits, as the Proto Pet is extremely dangerous. While the specifics of how dangerous the critter is and why are a bit hazy, the bottom line is it could cause damage of galactic proportions if things go awry. The pair agree to help Fizzwidget out and head off to the Bogon galaxy in their trusty ship. They'll come to discover there's a lot more going on when it comes to the Proto Pet and Mega Corp as they journey through the game's 20 worlds in their quest.
