|gameinfo          = Ratchet and Clank team up to save the world from the evil Drek, the leader of a dead planet who drains resources all over the universe.  As you progress from one alien planet to the next, you'll find or purchase over 36 weapons and gadgets, including a wrench, bomb glove, grappling hook, cannon, machine gun, and rocket launcher.  Think about it--you can choose from burning, bombing, exploding or obliterating your enemies.  So go ahead, blow it all up.<br />

|Comments=Europe v01.70(27/02/2003), Still Playable. Game works fine at a good speed. Requires Software Mode to fix the graphics (Mipmapping), the game can be quite slow. I achieved pretty much constant full speed by putting VU Cycle Stealing to 1 and 4 Extra Rendering Threads for Software Mode (this game seems to like them a bit more than normal).

|Comments=BIOS: USA 2.00. Played at full speed. Opaque background to menus, but it's worth it to stay in hardware mode. OpenGL and Direct3D 11 had similar performance, with OpenGL performing slightly better. Anisotropic Filtering is optional. For the Riglar bolt-trick, use turbo mode, lock input, and lower GSdx settings.

|Comments=Game is very demanding. Occasionally slows down with EE Cyclerate 0, but setting to -1 activates the game's internal frameskipping and makes it run a little smoother in most sections. Solid background menus are fine, since other than that and some minor lighting glitches, the game looks great.

The game runs smooth with almost no problems (with some light lag which is almost not noticeable). I was able to complete the whole game without any issues.

Europe v01.70(27/02/2003), Still Playable. Game works fine at a good speed. Requires Software Mode to fix the graphics (Mipmapping), the game can be quite slow. I achieved pretty much constant full speed by putting VU Cycle Stealing to 1 and 4 Extra Rendering Threads for Software Mode (this game seems to like them a bit more than normal).

Using BIOS USA 1.60, game runs decently, says it's running at full speed always but you can see it lagging. To combat this a little, I raised the target framerate to 105%, so it runs at around 63 but it looks a little better. ClubSpade12

BIOS: USA 2.00. Played at full speed. Opaque background to menus, but it's worth it to stay in hardware mode. OpenGL and Direct3D 11 had similar performance, with OpenGL performing slightly better. Anisotropic Filtering is optional. For the Riglar bolt-trick, use turbo mode, lock input, and lower GSdx settings. Otamajakushi

Game is very demanding. Occasionally slows down with EE Cyclerate 0, but setting to -1 activates the game's internal frameskipping and makes it run a little smoother in most sections. Solid background menus are fine, since other than that and some minor lighting glitches, the game looks great. Darkshadows

v1.7.2921 GSdx SPU2-X Played the game on standard settings upscaled to 1080p. Game runs terrible on 1.6.0 but almost perfectly on latest nightly. Some cutscenes randomly lag and on planet Batalia/ fort krontos the game speed keeps moving between 85% and 100% probably because of all the rain on screen. Tom
