Ratchet: Deadlocked is a 2005 video game and is the fourth game in the Ratchet & Clank franchise to mixed reviews exclusively for the PlayStation 2.
While Insomniac Games had to develop the game, pieces of dialogue were removed, implying that there are extra levels and features that were eventually removed. However, the dialogue can be found within the files of the disc.
For a deleted mission on planet Sharr, Ratchet and his combat bots were supposed to rescue Hydro-Girl from the threats in the planet. Even though the mission was cut, the character appears in the end of the game.
