Game description: Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando (known as Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked and Loaded in Europe and Ratchet & Clank 2 in Japan) is a 2003 3D platformer video game developed by Insomniac Games. The gameplay of Going Commando is similar to that of the original Ratchet & Clank. The player explores planets in the "Bogon" Galaxy and undertakes missions. It contains more mini-games than were present in the previous game. The game also introduces role-playing game (RPG) elements, such as upgradeable weapons. Going Commando was released roughly a year after its predecessor, and received very positive reviews. Critics noted the game's improved graphics, longer gameplay, and added role-playing elements as being major improvements over the original, but also criticized the game for its very high difficulty.

Trivia

  • Also Known As Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked and Loaded (EU, AU), Ratchet & Clank 2 (JP)

Known Issues

Broken textures

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Garbage textures until you stand close to objects due to GDSX not supporting mip-mapping in hardware mode.
  • Workaround: Run the game in software mode (F9), this however will cause a considerable speed hit. To minimize the speed hit, set "Extra rendering threads" to one less than the number of CPU cores that you have.
