  1. This is one of the best games for PlayStation 2, what is also the weak point of it. Graphics and game mechanics are not the same as in a PS3 game, so it isn’t stirring for me.
  2. If you've been hankering for a full-scale Jak and Daxter game for some time, The Lost Frontier largely fulfills its duty as a continuation of the main series with flying colors. It's not a perfect sequel by any means, but it's strong enough to merit a purchase and some solid play time. Just be prepared to deal with some bumps along the way.

    Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier is a good game with here and there some setbacks. It plays smoothly, it’s fast-paced from the get go and it looks fine. There’s not much bad to say about the game, aside from some camera flaws.

The other Jak and dax games had a 3-D platforming game with a fun sandbox world and this game didn't have that. The characters are copy pasted from the other games with worse traits and where the F$%K are the light and dark powers! The games still good but not half as good as its predecessors Full Review »

I was so excited to finally get my hands on The Lost Frontier and continue the amazing journey.Unfortunately, there were some very disappointing factors in this new game that in my opinion lowered the reputation of the Jak and Daxter series drastically.The fact that this game wasn't made by Naughty Dog threw me off.Why would you start a game series so unbelievable,then hand it over to a company that makes poor,half ass games like Phineas and Ferb 3 - Across the 2nd Dimension... High Impact seriously?! Everything from the graphics,to the camera positioning to the range of movements and weapon ability is badly effected in this new game.They need to remake The Lost Frontier by Naughty Dog and continue the series the way its supposed to be,unbeatable,unbelievable and beautiful.C'mon Naughty Dog,keep it up!
