    This was a good but it's a Jak and Daxter game, and didn't have the same feel. 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

    A deep disappointment for Jak fans, and a sad epitaph for the series. The camera is broken to the point that the game is frustrating. (As others have pointed out, the game is ported from the PSP version, and uses the shoulder-button camera rotation from that version instead of the proper right-stick camera control PS2 players expect.) The Dark Daxter sequences are annoying. The auto-aim A deep disappointment for Jak fans, and a sad epitaph for the series. The camera is broken to the point that the game is frustrating.

The Dark Daxter sequences are annoying. The auto-aim of some of the guns makes the shooting gallery trials feel like a burden. The space action is fun, but it isn't enough to make up for the rest.

    I love the Jak and Daxter series but this game is a big disappointment. The camera is painful to control. I often find myself shooting at the screen in hopes of hitting enemy's I think is there. The controls are not spot on and Jak's animation's are a choppy compared to previous Jak and Daxter games.

I feel like High Impact games could have spent more time to make the controls and the camera more polished. Also, the story feels weak and the dark Daxter sequences feel out of place. On the other hand the animation in cut scenes are what you would expect from the Jak and Daxter series. Overall, this game is mediocre at best. Expand

    I have been playing the Jak and Daxter series since the second grade,I grew up playing these games and keeping track of when the next one would come out. 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 DaxterI have been playing the Jak and Daxter series since the second grade,I grew up playing these games and keeping track of when the next one would come out. 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!

    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. Unless you're a die-hard Jak and Daxter fan, Jak and Daxter: The Final Frontier isn't worth the coin.
