there's nothing like popping in this game to relax you-when i would get frustrated with the world in general, i'd play this game until i was completely calm-in my own way i was going commando without actually harming anything or anyone. i'd recommend this game for taking out anger or if you get bored. i didn't play the original but the graphics are way cooler than the original ratchet and clank from the preview i seen for the original. unless it's been changed the controls were really confusing and the controls were really sticky-i'm talking peanut butter and jelly sticky. that's the only thing i find wrong with the game.
