Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando

Another of my favorite games!

Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando

-After defeating Drek, they are now celebrities. After things cool down for a while, they are teleported to the Bogon Galaxy by the head of Megacorp, Abercrombie Fizzwidget. This company makes weapons for the Bogon Galaxy. He asks for their assistance in recovering a stolen biological experiment. After being equipped with weapons, he is sent to a flying lab on Planet Aranos to investigate. When he finds it in a cage, a thief breaks in and steals it. He asks Ratchet who he is and he covers his identity by lying

-After informing Fizzwidget of the thief's escape with the Experiment, Ratchet is given coordinates to several planets, where he is chasing the theif. He finally finds the thief on Planet Siberius, a cold, desolate mining planet. He gives the Experiment to Fizzwidget and he is accidentally ejected over Planet Tabora, a desert wasteland planet that has been turned into a mine for Sand Crystals. They run into the thief again and when the mask falls off, it is revealed to be a woman, named Angela Cross.

-She tells them that if that Experiment falls into the wrong hands, the entire glaxy is doomed. On the next planet, Planet Dobbo, Ratchet & Clank discover that what Angela said is true. Watching a video of it eating its handlers, Ratchet & Clank try to warn Fizzwidget about it, but it does not get through as he is distracted during the video.

-Throughout the game, you'll see mentionings of a group called Thugs 4 Less, showing an alien with red eyes speaking with a heavy New York accent. Ratchet & Clank then see a commercial showing th Experiment, which has been dubbed the "Protopet" and is being issued for mass release. In Silver City on Planet Boldan, the Thugs 4 Less crew arrests Ratchet & Clank and imprisons them on Planet Aranos.

-When they escape, they try and find Angela, who has been captured and is now in the company of Thugs 4 Less. On Planet Snivelak, they defeat the Thugs 4 Less leader and rescue Angela. She tells them to split up, her going to her home planet to get her Megacorp ID and they go to Planet Smolg to destroy any Protopets there and also to Planet Damosel to get parts for a weapon to control robots

-After arriving at the Megacorp HQ, they all discover that Captain Qwark had disguised himself as Fizzwidget and planned to release the Protopets as a way of becoming a hero once more. Her tries to use an item called a Helix-o-Morph on them but instead it gets used on the Protopet, making it gigantic. When they defeat the Protopet, Captain Qwark comes out and burps up Angela's Helix-o-Morph and it returns the Protopet to it's original state.

-Same gameplay as the first one. You control Ratchet, a Lombax from a 3rd person view. Only in this game, you are in a new galaxy, the "Bogon" galaxy.
-Has 18 new weapons and also a few weapons from the previous one, such as the RYNO, which has been given a new look
-When each weapon is used alot, it is upgraded. And also, when you kill enemies, your health level, also known as your Nanotech bar, upgrades, so more enemies that die, the higher your health will go
