Dec 16, 2012Jak and Daxter... I had some good times with this game. I you're fan of Ratchet and Clank, you should definitely check this out, plus this isJak and Daxter... I had some good times with this game. I you're fan of Ratchet and Clank, you should definitely check this out, plus this is older and has a better concept. On this game, you play as Jak, a teenager who gets to do alot of tasks to save his life. While Jak meets new friends, you get an innovating fighting style and pretty rare weapons.
Gameplay: 8/10 - Funny, but can get repetitive.
Music: 10/10 - This game has excellent music for its genre and for each scene.
Graphics: 10/10 - Released in 2000, when PlayStation 2 didn't use its full potential; the graphics are amazing compared to the other games in the year 2000 to 2004.
Story: 9/10 - Simple, but dramatic and interesting.… Full Review »
Mar 5, 2012I want to get one thing off my chest before anyone speculates, I am no ND fanboy, infact I think there the most over rated developer in Sony'sI want to get one thing off my chest before anyone speculates, I am no ND fanboy, infact I think there the most over rated developer in Sony's roost but that doesn't mean they havn't done great things, and I would like to think that the original Jak and Daxter is one of them. If your wondering how good this HD port is, well its solid, the frame rate is smooth, theres very little loading and the 720p visuals do look good, 1080 may have been better but hey. However there is the odd blemish such as some icons and menus havn't been beefed up to HD. Theres also a solid trophy list thats very easy to get them all and the icons are lovingly crafted assuring that this is no botch job port. the game itself is simple, its a platformer first, second and third, almost to a fault. The world is bright and charming, Daxter is hillarious and the charcters infectiously amusing. Gameplay basically consists of jumping on platforms, drivng a hover bike here and there and punching bad guys, which all works well part from enemies encounters sometimes feel like filler as there too easy and too few variations of enemy. the camera also is problematic as it constantly jams in awkward possitions and can make jumping between small ledges a pain, its not nearly as bad as Jak IIs camera, and the excellent controls largely offset this issue. Another minor quible is the music, it doesn't have much of an identity often feeling like some botched tunes from Crash Bandicoot were half-heartedly brought over, however a lot of the music is very solid. This game is all about collecting, whether it be powercells or orbs, all you need to know is its very addictive and rather easy, perhaps a little too easy. It took me just 10-12 hours to Platinum but it was joyous despite being a tad simple and dated but I can say with honesty that this is the best PS2 game I have played thus far and I can't wait for a possible ratchet and Clank collection.… Full Review »
