    There’s fun to be had here, but it could’ve been polished a bit more to bring out the value.
  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.
  3. It's clear that the developers didn't have enough time to properly finish the game. As it is now it's ugly and full of bugs and bad gameplay. A shame really, because with some proper polishing it could've been a really good platformer. [Jan 2010]
  4. 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.

    Though let down its by haphazard combat mechanics, there are enough positives to The Lost Frontier to make it worth checking out for both fans of the series and of platforming games in general.
  6. Unless you're a die-hard Jak and Daxter fan, Jak and Daxter: The Final Frontier isn't worth the coin.
  7. Visually, it looks decent, but not great. [Feb 2010, p.93]
  8. 75
    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.

    well naughty dog sold out the series to some one else for money. and the game is not right! i dont know what it is it just doesn't feel right. the sound and music make you know it's a game. the world is empty feeling and lonely. the game itself is decent but it is just not enough. i played for about 3 hours and i dont want to finish it. the jak series has been like a bunch of chocolate this last edition is a vanilla disapointment!

    HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO US NAUGHTY DOG!!!! I used to love the jak and daxter series but selling it to another company has just made it crap. The only reason I didn't give this a zero is because the ships at least looked quite cool. Full Review »

    I'm just so disappointed that Naughty Dog stopped the series after Jak X, there is so many ways this game is just not right. The story: wtf? it's a completely different story about the world running out of eco, this is not a real sequel, this is not even Jak IV. Speaking of Jak, he does look bad. The story and direction is a plain disgrace. No light and dark Jak either and there are many other terrible things about this game. Full Review »
