    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

    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

    This game is very deserving of a zero BUT here's why. The Jak and Daxter series is a series looked at very highly upon due to story, creativity, gameplay, and much much more. This is because the original developers, Naughty Dog are very talented at what they do. When this game was announced which its fans had been waiting very patiently for a new installment, they expected to get a returnThis game is very deserving of a zero BUT here's why. The Jak and Daxter series is a series looked at very highly upon due to story, creativity, gameplay, and much much more. This is because the original developers, Naughty Dog are very talented at what they do. When this game was announced which its fans had been waiting very patiently for a new installment, they expected to get a return of their favorite heroes to continue the amazing story and adventure from Jak 3. This is not at all the case being that the new developers High Impact Games had made it a spin off which has nothing to do with anything the fans of the series had loved it for. This caused mass hatred towards High Impact Games because despite it being a poor installment in the series, it was a poorly crafted game, from the mechanics to gameplay. It also took away the open world and key features such as dark and light Jak which had been an iconic aspect to Jak since Jak II. This game was very linear and the only way to 100% it is the first time around. The actual game itself taking out all elements of the Jak series would receive a 5 but because it takes away everything from what the series was, it was a disaster. There were many poor ideas crafted into the game such as Dark Daxter which feels as if they were taken from a webpage filled with illogical requests to put into the game from a fan that didn't quite understand the reason behind the previous games story. They all have no correlation to the story and what is set as reality in the game. This series has been in high demand by its true fans for a while now and even now after this game had ruined the name of what Jak and Daxter is, we want a Jak game made by Naughty Dog to satisfy our disappointment from this game. This is a precious series and should not be made for the sake of it, but rather by people who understand what the series is about and what is supposed to happen in the story that coincides with the previous games story. I was very disappointed to have gotten my hopes up for this game back in 2009 and i hope that one day, Naughty Dog decides to make a new Jak and Daxter game to continue the great story that many people have been intrigued by for years and want their questions to be answered through amazing gameplay and story!

    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.
