Ratchet & Clank is a 3D platformer/shooter game for the PlayStation 2, developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony. It was released in North America on November 7, 2002, and received positive reviews in the gaming press. It won PlayStation 2 Game of the Year in 2002.

Chairman Drek was creating a planet for his race, the Blarg, by breaking off a large quantity of other surrounding planets and using them to form the new Blarg planet. He didn't seem to have any concern for those currently living on those planets. To stop him, Ratchet had to try to contact Captain Qwark, the greatest hero the galaxy had ever known.

The game was one of the first to try to shake up the platformer genre by focusing the game not only on making difficult jumps, but also on action and shooting aspects as well. In addition to shooting, the game includes space dogfights, hoverboard races, Grindboot courses, Magneboot courses, giant robot battles, and Swingshot courses (courses where Ratchet swings from node to node (called "Versa-targets") using a special hookshot-type gadget).
