The way the Ratchet & Clank wiki capitalizes words has changed; therefore, this article should be checked, and, if necessary, capitalization should be fixed.
Participation is voluntary, at the discretion of the game developer. To obtain the ratings for any piece of software, the developer completes a questionnaire, which is then evaluated by the Netherlands Institute for the Classification of Audiovisual Media (NICAM) and ratings are given. It's based on the Dutch Kijkwijzer system.
There are two parts to the classification for any piece of software; a suggested minimum age and also up to six descriptions of content, such as the use of strong language, violence, etc.
Some countries use their own rating system instead or as well as PEGI. This is often due to national legislation and laws. Examples include Great Britain which often uses the BBFC and Germany which use the USK.
PEGI has five age categories. In the countries of Finland and Portugal, local legislation conflicts with some of the ratings and they are changed accordingly.
PEGI's style for game ratings has changed over time. The currently used system is below.
