If we’re going to talk about action platformers similar to Ratchet & Clank, the Jak & Daxter series is one of the first to come to mind. While the first game is a little bit more rooted in traditional platforming, the next two games infuse a lot of action similar to what you’d find in Ratchet & Clank. There’s a heavier emphasis on combat and you can utilize different guns and vehicles to take out enemies and complete objectives.

There’s a lot of similarities between the two franchises, both in terms of their origins, and how they evolved over time. The biggest difference is that while Ratchet & Clank went on to have a life that continued through the next two generations of consoles, Jak & Daxter never left the PS2 and was capped out with a kart racing game. Naughty Dog, the developers, moved on to the Uncharted series and later, The Last of Us.

While there haven’t been any recent Jak & Daxter games, a collection of them were released on the PS3 and PS Vita.
