In Ratchet & Clank's first outing on the PlayStation 3, the duo is up against a robotic force led by a "Cragmite" named Emperor Percival Tachyon. Along the way, Ratchet learns about the origins and history of his race, and Clank discovers he has a soul (which allows him to speak to invisible "Zoni" robots and unlock new abilities).

The game includes all the usual elements of the franchise, including tons of unusual gadgets and upgradable weapons (including guns that turn enemies into penguins or make them dance, disco-style), space combat, off-beat cut-scenes, and puzzle sequences in which players control Clank and his Zion friends. The SIXAXIS motion controller is used to steer Ratchet while in free-fall mode, and to aim/steer some of the game's gadgets. The game also features an interconnection mode with the Secret Agent Clank PSP game.
