PSXE Best Of The Best Poll Update: Ratchet Leads Jak

There were plenty of great platformers on the PS2, but it seems clear - so far, anyway - that one, a franchise best as voted by most critics at the time, is the PSXE reader's choice.

Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal scored the majority of the votes in the first week, although both Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy and Maximo: Ghosts to Glory performed admirably. For those who liked the niche platformers that didn't sell so well but pulled down high review scores, you'll be unhappy to see games like Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil and Ape Escape 2 make early exits. However, enough of you enjoyed Tim Schafer's excellent Psychonauts to push that game into the second round, even though it was admittedly better on the Xbox. As one minor surprise, the freshly released Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant managed to sneak into the top 5, which just proves they really did rejuvenate the ailing franchise. As for the coming week, we've seen all kinds of weird things happen before, so although Up Your Arsenal has the obvious edge, that may not stand up until next Sunday. Can Jak and Daxter leapfrog Ratchet? And will Psychonauts challenge Maximo for the Bronze medal? Guess we'll have to wait and see, but for now, here are the top 5 that will battle it out:

Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy

Maximo: Ghosts to Glory


Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant

By the way, if anyone is still wondering why we only included one installment each from the Ratchet and Jak franchises, it's because we wanted other titles in the running. So we just took the best rated from each highly acclaimed series and put them in; they're doing quite well, wouldn't you say? Vote now for the Best PS2 Platformer Finals!
