Ratchet & Clank Trilogy

Anyone else get this yet? What's your opinions of it?

 

I've been loving it, since I've always been a Ratchet fan and these are the core games, running on my PS3. But the pros stop there -- this is without a doubt, the worst PS2 to PS3 port I've seen from Sony yet, and it screams of laziness. I'm near the end of Ratchet 2 and these are some things I've noticed:

 

- Every cutscene in the game is in SD (plus electrolyzer segments). Every single one. Frames cut at the side, a large majority of this "HD Classic" isn't HD at all.

 

- Graphic bugs.

There's so much pop in pop out graphics. In a lot of in-world scenes Clank's eyes kind of merge into the back of his head so they're half gray. Hit a rubbish bin in Ratchet 2 and it just vanishes from the game instantly. Ratchet's helmet in R&C2 in-level scenes is oversized, as mentioned by people on YouTube, it looks strange and awkward. Some enemies vanish and then re-appear in a second or so. Some caves glitch out and go transparent in the distance. The HUD in R&C2 on the HDTV is huge, pixellated, and ugly, I don't think it's been scaled properly. In SD, the top slightly pops out of the screen and it looks squashed together and horrible, not how it would look on the PS2.

 

- Audio bugs.

In world, if a NPC is meant to be talking, eg. the tours at the weapon facility in R&C2, it doesn't. It's odd that the audio here was completely missing. High pitched sounds come out distorted and horrible sounding, such as in electrolyzer segments or I noticed it with some TNT crates too.

 

- Gameplay bugs.

Several times, quick select has refused to work, it required a reset of the game. Also whenever I pause the game (this started happening halfway through R&C2), it'd just show a screen of the last vendor or spawn point, even if it was in a totally different level it'd just pull this image up out of nowhere.

 

There's probably more bugs I've forgotten, and there's undoubtedly going to be more hard to miss issues with the game with more game time. It just makes me wonder, is this why America is getting the game two months later? Are they going to do some proper QA on their version? I'm probably being a bit nitpicky but other Classic HD titles got HD treatement and trophies without the game turning into an inconsistent bug fest. Patch? This must be why the game was delayed in the first place.

Nah worst HD Classics port is the Prince of Persia Trilogy. The same game breaking bugs the original PS2/gamecube versions had. Had to practically restart Warrior Within hit by the Wraith character glitch. Not bothered finished the Two Thrones hit more bugs that were there last gen.

I've been playing the first R&C for a good 7 hours now and the only bug I've encountered is in 3D when accessing the weapon shop, a strange artifact flickers when selecting a weapon or ammo.

 

Apart from that the game is beautiful to look at and a joy to play, can't believe it's been 10 years.

Yeah. It really has been a joy to play. It's just the bugs which are trying to ruin it. R&C1 for the most part is totally fine but they clearly had trouble on the second. Hope the third is well done.

I've been playing this collection all weekend and I'm loving it (: It's fantastic, Ratchet and Clank has always been one of my all time favourites, so it's really fun to re-live the journey with better visuals. I'm so glad I bought it! The only issue I have with it would be about 3 times in the first R&C game I experienced some really bad slowdown, usually when there was too much action on-screen. But other than that, it's a top notch collection.

I have been playing some of 1 and some of 2, have not realy found too many glitches, Al in the first one looked preety bad as some of the textures on his shirt overlapped and the cockpit texture on your ship have not been upscalled well. The thing that anoys me is that its been adverised as 1080p but by default boots into 720p and if i force 1080p it only looks upscalled, i was lead to belive it was full 1080p. Perhaps some one at sony can address our concerns perhaps this is why it was delayed by a month they must have having problems.

I got some new bugs. The first one was kind of funny (http://imgur.com/06sKv ) the second one... was rather annoying (http://imgur.com/UBLfx - camera alternated between this and being stuck in my feet looking up). Had to quit out and restart to fix it. Also had a electrolyser segment cut in half but oh well.

 

And yeah ^ I thought, 1080p 60fps, this is gonna look amazing! So I felt burned when so much of the game isn't HD at all, a lot of scenes even cut at the sides.

I've just experienced an awful bug in R&C2. Hopefully, this is fixable otherwise I will cry. I was in the Megacorp Games on Joba in challenge mode and I bought the RYNO 2. Everything was fine until I went back into the arena. My nanotech meter reset back to default and everytime I killed some enemies, it would keep upgrading but then reset after the match had finished. I quit the game and now, my save file will not load. That, and quick select refusing to work half of the time. If this problem doesn't fix itself, I'm going to have to start again...which I really don't wanna do. Chi crystals, Moonstones. Such a grind.

I just logged in now to report bugs, and lo and behold, someone has beat me to it. 

I agree with everything mentioned in the OP. Also, background music isn't looping properly in both 1 and 2. Haven't tried 3 yet.

 

Is there any way we can actually get the devs attention drawn to these issues? They're killing some of my best memories here........

So, I finished last night, three platinums set in stone. I loved the nostalgia but the experience was really bittersweet. I ran into a lot more bugs, which I'm not going to bother mentioning because others have caught on now that this game is buggy as hell, so I should expect a bug patch. It's pathetic when a cutscene surprises me because a character doesn't have completely white eyes (go sasha!), :O! I just feel sorry for the people experiencing this great series for the first time and to have it pretty dampened by a terrible porting process. Hopefully when Ratchet Gladiator is released (please), it won't be as bad. Also does anyone else find it funny that America waited two extra months just to get a DEMO? A demo that should be free and available to everyone and probably will be shortly after? Damn, faith in Sony right now: -100000000000000

Ratchet 1 no bugs experienced, Ratchet 2 Ratchet himself has become invisible but armour and helmet and clank still remains rendering myself invincible but jumped of ledge as to fix it as don't want to be invincible even though on the tundland wastes the bears are a pain! Ratchet 3 is my main utmost problem at the moment... completed majority of the game leaving the last level (As wanting to complete all challenges grab Titanium/Platinum (I no longer care) Bolts etc) But in sewers, aquatos after killing majority of Amoeboids with QOR Game freezes and i've turned off and loaded the game around 30/40 times now... So i thought okay let's try the Disc Blade Gun... 2 hit kills giant Amoeboid Freezes... I am sincerely not happy with the bugs i have experienced all i want to do is have all 3 RnC's Plat'd and makes me ready to Plat RnC Gladiator (When released) Is there anything anyone could suggest for me to not suffer the game freezing bug? Thanks in advance.

Might be worth a try transferring the save data to another console, playing past the bug (if the bug doesn't appear) or until it goes and then transferring back to your console - worked for me when I encountered the Platinum glitch on Lego Harry Potter.
