The Ratchet and Clank Trilogy (known as Ratchet & Clank Collection in North America and Ratchet & Clank 1+2+3 in Japan) is a high-definition remastered collection of the first 3 Ratchet and Clank games from the Playstation 2. The collection includes the original 3 games in native 1080p @ 60FPS and includes 720p stereoscopic 3D support @ 30FPS. It also includes the multiplayer of Up Your Arsenal over the PlayStation Network. The PlayStation 3 Multiplayer Servers were terminated on February 15, 2018. It includes a Trophy set for each game. The games feature a combination of platforming, and over the top gunplay with a wide-variety of cartoonish weapons. While following the adventures of our charismatic duo throughout the universe.
While the collection was praised for its timeless gameplay. It is known amongst fans to be a less than ideal port. While the first game has the fewest issues, all of the titles feature a wide variety of intrusive visual bugs, including squashed character portraits and, most infamously, Ratchet's enlarged helmet floating above his head in every in-game cutscene throughout the 2nd and 3rd game. Presumably as a result of being ported by a less experienced developer, Idol Minds. Many fans consider the original Playstation 2 versions of each game to be the definitive way to play them due to these issues.
