Excerpt: The spy story has been and is one of the most popular genres for longer than most of us are able to remember. It has been been in the subject of suspense in films like Three Days of The Condor and The Man Who Knew Too Much, of deep introspection in films like The Manchurian [...] . . .
Excerpt: Clank is on a mission. His best buddy Ratchet has been framed by a ruthless enemy and jailed for a crime he did not commit. Not only that, but Ratchet's maximum security prison is full of the universes most dangerous criminals, most of whom are lining up to personally welcome Ratchet to his new home.
Excerpt: Everyone's favorite robotic sidekick is starring in his very own adventure (no, not Bender!) Clank takes the forefront in Secret Agent Clank . Known for their Pixar approach to game making, the Ratchet and Clank series has always walked the line between being a game for kids while still enjoyable to adults. It seems Secret Agent Clank has changed allegiance and targeted just the kiddies in this PSP to PS2 port of a decent spy game.

Excerpt: A l’origine, Secret Agent Clank est sorti sur PSP durant l’année 2008. Il débarque maintenant dans sa version PlayStation 2. Le jeu est un portage direct, très légèrement affiné au niveau graphique, mais il jouit désormais d’une maniabilité adaptée au DualShock 2 (et se voit donc attribué le stick droit à la gestion de la caméra). Ce qui rend l’expérience bien plus confortable.
Pros: Une des meilleures séries de la PlayStation 2, La parodie de Metal Gear Solid et de James Bond, Le minijeu Rythme Robotique hyper marrant, Gameplay agréable et décontracté
Cons: Une impression de déjà-vu, déjà joué, Réalisation technique sympa mais en-deçà des Ratchet d’Insomniac
